Just checkin' into your thread and saw this. I'm humbled. You are, of course, welcome. And I am absolutely certain you will enjoy your Seaton experience. smile.gif

Yes indeed; up until that point, I was saving for a single JL Audio F113, but after you, as a respected member, mentioned the Submersive, I had to start the research. The results of that research speak for themselves, as two now sit in my theater. It's amazing what one post can do. Thanks for sharing that insight!

Hey, how's it going? Ah, the room treatments most certainly make a difference in your room. They were very easy to install. Each panel comes with a wire. You tie the wire to preinstalled posts in each side of the panel (vertical and horizontal post configurations are already there) and then simply use the wire to hang the panel on a screw. It's very simple and very easy to do. I've certainly grown accustomed to the improvements offered by the room treatments. Center channel vocals will certainly seem clearer, which at first, may seem "lower" in volume, but that's only because you're hearing the sound with a mitigated echo factor. Surround channels most certainly benefit from treatments as well, and the L&R channels will blow you away if you're a music guy. They are very well priced and it's great that the treatments can be added ad hoc (although, as you may know, GIK does offer complete room packages). What treatment config are you considering? If still undecided, it's cool. I spent about two weeks undecided, and made a decision at about 1:00am in the morning one night. Do you use Audyssey, MACC, or any of their ilk?

I am good !!! enjoying a day of NFL and AVSing lol!!!

Sounds good on the installation of these panels as it was not much on their site. I look forward to hearing what they offer knowing my choices are just a start. I have read numerous post including yours most recently and wondered to myself how have I spent so much time updating my setup over the last few years and missed what these panels are said to offer so I went back and forth with (GIK great group) trying to decide what I needed to start and ended up being a couple Tri Traps and 244's. I am currently using Emo-Q but understand its far, far from perfection so with these treatments and more reading hopefully I can find a nice medium.

Ah, I spent my Sunday doing the same thing! Lol.....how's the room treatment journey going? I was the same way about discovery of room treatments....it hit me like "how did I miss over the last few years?" eek.gif *shocked* lol.

Good to see that you still like what the room treatments have done for your room and system biggrin.gif.

I agree I wish knew about Room Treatments when I first got into Home Theatre. smile.gif
post #795 of 3159
I just thought about something.. Wouldn't you have to get your projector re-calibrated since you have a new screen and had the room painted? I would think the old calibration will be null and void after those changes.

But alas, 'tis quite true. I'm holding off because I'm trying to decide on an RS56 upgrade this November. With 3D coming out that i actually care about these days, the ghosting on thie RS45 can be problematic at times. I'm awaiting reports on the 3D performance of the new crop of JVCs.

Hey Matt have you heard how the new JVC are like regarding the 3D?

What's up Frank! I haven't heard anything yet, but I'm keeping mu eyes glued to the forums and review sites. The second I see how they perform, I'll make my decision regarding the 56. If they haven't made improvements in 3D performance, I'll spring for the recalibration of the RS45/Lumagen combo (which I"ll get at a discount biggrin.gif )
How have your first couple weeks been with the RS60? Hey man, have you encountered any excessive noise with your Darblet?

I hope JVC has made improvements, with all these new releases they should have least made some improvements. I enjoy my RS 60 what a difference coming from the RS10 but I can see I'm going have too get an Isf calibrator out here soon. Thx is ok but you can see differences esp in the whites.

My Darbee did excessive noise even at 45% with particular movies but I also experienced handshake issues quite a bit so I sold it. Great product but not for me.

Take care buddy.

I'm going through something similar. On the films that it really works well on, the picture w/ the darbee is stunning. But....on the noisy films, it's REALLY bad. I ended up taking it out of the blu ray chain and just use it for gaming and satellite sources.
Glad to hear you're getting a visible difference from the RS10. There's nothing better than a marked improvement in performance in a new purchase!! Started any sleepover parties on those new chairs???!!!??? Those things look so plush and soft!!

Those chairs were originally in our formal lounge. They're comfortable but won't put me too sleep. Actually I moved them again but this time to benefit me as I use the room 98% of the time.

Hey Frank, ghosting is a sort of double-vision that JVC's are notorious for. Next to certain images, there will be a translucent replica of the item(s) on screen to the
Eft or right (or on both sides) of the original item. It nas something to do with the 3D processing chip and the interaction w/ the glasses. The Avengers definitely has ghosting on JVC's. If you try Avengers 3D in your RS60, go to the "Invasion Begins" chapter. Ghosting is quite prevalent through this chapte and you'll see what I mean.

I'm definitely looking forward to the 3D release of Avatar. I just hope it's watchable w/ only minimal ghosting on my PJ.

I've got a feeling 3D on my projector will be useless but 2D looks amazing. I watched Avengers again to watch It on the RS60 and wow. The beginning scene there has been talk in other threads as its dark I have to say its not. The JVC -Stewart combination I could see everything and the detail, man unbelievable.
Have you seen it yet?

Yes I have! Man--the JVC+Stewart combination is remarkable for The Avengers on blu ray. I definitely agree that the intro scene is not overly dark and is perfectly fitting for the location--an underground research facility. That entire film looks amazing. I actually watch certain scenes over and over again for Visual and Audio enjoyment biggrin.gif
