Yeah, if I had wanted to do the shades for my bedroom, it would have been only three smallish windows, so not terribly expensive.

One caution about the honeycomb shades: I don't know of any of...

Oh, got it, sorry. I went through a local Lutron dealer. I'm not sure if DIY is really possible with Lutron.

I have a total of 9 Lutron motors:

Patio door
Window
Main screen motor (as...

They definitely aren't. But they're really really good. If I had seen how well they worked in the theater early enough in my remodel, I would have put them in my bedroom as well.

Unit Startup Failure

Greetings,

This evening, I was doing some setup work in my theater, so I had things powered up, including my Classé CT-SSP.

I finished my setup and shut things down, which puts the Classé into...

Let's hope not! It's not too hard to take off with the proper tool. But I'm not willing to try putting it up again myself, especially on that panel with the cutout for the light fixture. The pros...

It is a bit vexing, but right you are. "Stuff" happens. :) We did do extensive shake tests and tone sweeps before putting the fabric up, so I suspect that that screw either backed out a bit, or...

I would have made the stretched-fabric panels removable wherever there was a speaker behind them. It was a technical challenge to do this, so I opted not to. I believed that it was unlikely that...

That's interesting. Where do your subs cross over (i.e., what range of frequencies are getting that 6dB boost)? I find that I also have modified the bass levels for music compared to movies.

OOoooooooooh. Interesting. Thank you for the clarification! I guess now we get to start talking about "4-chip DLP projectors". :-)

How does stacking DLPs improve contrast? Don't you get twice the brightness and a black floor that's also twice as high?

Perhaps, but don't forget about HDR. HDR will require substantially higher light output.

I would love to understand the intent here. If the idea is that the cooling unit could be located outside the room, allowing the projector itself to be super-quiet, then that's very interesting. But...

I don't think you have to have 4K content to enjoy a 4K projector. I enjoyed the hell out of my Sony 4K for over a year before I got a viable 4K source for it. The Sony scaler does a very good job...

The translated article says RGB laser, so it sure sounds like it's not a phosphor-based engine.

The issues for me would be contrast, noise, and 4K. If they're really thinking about 12,000 lumens,...
