Every great now and then I seem to have to move the raster up. Particularly after a new install or any kind of movement of the projector.. Like it needs to settle.

FS: Klipsch RF-3 floorstanding speaker pair $200 (local pickup only, Denver CO)

I have for sale a pair of RF-3 speakers, the originals not the RF-3II's. The reason for the low price is because they are in rough shape cosmetically. Specifically the woofers have some slight...

For me the most encouraging thing for Atmos at home taking off is that the receivers already announced can create the Atmos effect almost with a current 7.1 or even 5.1 set up. They need to advertise...

From what I'm reading the lens solution introduces it's own artifacts, in the form of distortion and scaling artifacts. Sounds like the thing to do is forget the curved screen, it would look cool but...

I should have clarified further. I'd also like the cinema scope screen to curved, can that be done without a special lens?

Excellent, I'm going for the gusto then, a 140" screen. 140" shouldn't be too large, and I won't lose any height the screen already has on my current 120" 16:9 screen.

I'll be using an...

I'd assumed the curvature would help the brightness. Otherwise a 140" would be acceptable. But can I do one of those sizes without a lens?

Yeah the seating will be around 12ft from the screen. I do worry about the image being dimmer, but it's just something I'll have to get used to.

140 might be a happy enough medium, don't think...

JVC RS46/X35 user, how big can I go with an acoustically transparent screen?

So looks like I'm going full audiophile. I just bought a pair of Klipsch KPT-904 speakers which can really only work behind a screen. So whats the largest I can go with an acoustically transparent...

Yeah I think 32 would be overkill for anyone without a crazy massive room, 11.2 should be an elegant sufficiency. Considering Atmos isn't really 32 discrete channels, it just uses however many...

I've always wanted to do that. I've had several theater rooms, all in rent houses, so I make do. This will be my 1st opportunity for acoustic perfection. :) Did it cost an arm and a leg?

Good call, do it right from the get go. I went to rivesaudio.com and they do have "dealers" in Colorado. The basement will be the theater room, so they can analyze before the room even gets framed?

In reality it adds texture to the image, giving the image a more artificial digital look. I spent 4-5 years with a 2.8 screen and nearly a year with the 2.4, I'll take the old 2.8 any day.

Think there's any chance they might go back to the real 2.8 high power material?
