Thanks Gerben! We already have 2 offers for our house before the showing, which is tonight! You can see the two pictures I have attached...one of the front wall and one of the rear wall. As I said we will build a rear wall with strong solid door. The ceilings are 2,4 meters at their highest and 1,14 meters at their lowest (where they meet the side walls). My current room is amazing but I Iook forward to a bigger room with a bigger sound. I wanted to thank you and Anders (who I will email) for your work with Pär on this new theater. Very much appreciated.
This new room has a budget, and therefore compromise must be made. The most important thing to me in a room is the sound when the lights go down. Of course the image and sound work together to create that experience that takes you away to another place for a couple hours, however I am definitely a sound guy now. I was an image guy until I auditioned Procella Speakers, and then a new world of powerfully detailed and tactile sound changed all that. So I will be keeping the pull down screen that the previous owner is gonna leave with the house. The image will be about 310 cm x 155 (2:1). I will probably get a JVC X35 PJ which will give me the better blacks I crave.
As far as the audio I am leaning towards going from a P6 to a P610 for LCR based upon Pär's recommendation and you guys as well. 2 P6's for surround duty. I will get a Sherbourn 7 x 350 watt amp plus a Xilica dsp from Pär to handle the 6 channels of dsp amplification needed for the LCR P610's. If my budget allowed I would definitely use the Procella amps. I will most likely stick with the active P15 I have as it is a beast and "good enough"
. I will be one channel short of amplification for one of the surrounds, so I will have to pick up a 2 channel amp either used or from an internet direct company in the USA. That should leave me enough for some paint, velvet for the front wall and ceiling, and some AT treatments from Pär via Svanå.
If the person who buys our house wants to buy some or all of the home theater gear I have now they can for the right price. I would just re-buy the stuff, and the room would stay intact (that would mean something to me).
There s a lot of moving pieces here and a lot depend on if the buyer of our house wants to buy some or all of the gear I have now. I am guessing no one will buy everything, but maybe they will buy the LCR and the Screen Research CP2 screen as well as the PJ. That would not be too much money and they would be at a great starting point for a great experience. We will see. Thanks again.
Edit: DA2-800DSP.....a new amp in the works?! Just kidding, I am assuming you meant to put the 2 in front of the 8.Edited by gamelover360 - 2/27/13 at 2:05am
