On a page all by it's self I wasn't quite sure what to make of this post until I went back and read the previous page biggrin.gif

Your theater turned out very nice by the way... Very modern looking.

Hey Vic - Just catching up on a few threads and can't believe I had previously missed your pics. I hate to sound like an echo chamber, but very nice. I didn't expect a rich red carpet, but I have to say it really adds to the overall look.

Just make sure to keep the Kryptonite out of the room or it will sap your system's performance....biggrin.gif

Well, well, well..........Once again I have had the opportunity to enjoy a demo in Vik's theater. This one was a two hour demo session. First things first. Nothing strange or unusual happened, during the session, we did not get locked in the theater, nor did anything else besides a great demo session happen. My entire focus was on trying to be as critical and observant as possible.

We watched and listened to a wide variety of material, multi channel music, documentaries, 3D, action, LFE, demo discs, etc, etc at all different volume levels.

There truly is only so many ways you can wax eloquent about things, but having an extended demo session in Vik's theater reaffirms that when something is done right, you just know it straight off. What the best thing about Vik's theater (other that just how beautiful of a space it is) is balance. Everything works together so well that it is seamless. The "experience" is what home theater is all about, and Vik's theater has this in spades. The Seatons and the Procella's work incredibly well together and the sound is truly enveloping and engaging. The sound treatments do their job without making the room sound or feel dead or over treated. Everything is just crystal clear. The OS sub is simply fantastic. It is quite the experience to have your bottom vibrate in the chair and have your pant leg shake during an explosion. Did I mention Vik likes his LFE, a lot! his setup can play insanely loud without the slightest hint of strain or complaint, and well above reference and my listening comfort level. I must admit though that Vik likes it louder than I do, or he is just more deaf than I am. I thought I like to listen to my demo material loud, Vik has me beat for sure. biggrin.gif

Vik was really looking for some critical listening, and was truly wanting some negative input so he would know what he needed to focus on. It is really hard to give negative info on such a positive experience. The one thing I did notice was (a tiny, miniscule, minute, microscopic, ever so slight) tendency of the mains to overpower the surrounds at high volumes, but as soon as the volume was reduced below reference I did not notice any thing like that at all. (Now don't throw daggers, Vik wants a critical and honest review opinion, I'm just the messenger here) I actually commented to Vik how impressed I was about how well the surrounds integrated with the mains. The surround sound, dialog, LFE are all fantastic, clear, and except for what was previously mentioned spot on. I am really curious to hear how things sound when Vik has his setup calibrated later this year. It can only get more awesomer. biggrin.gif

The Epson, and the lens work very well together. I did not notice any artifacts, visual issues or color uniformity issues with the projected image. The colors were vibrant, and realistic with out any of the overblown or cartoonish looking colors seen with some displays. I think Vik was using THX mode and colors and skin tones were natural and realistic. A very beautiful image. We did watch a couple of 3D selections and on certain material I liked the front row the other material the rear/second row was better. This is not due to anything in Vik's theater at all, but I'm still really not a fan of 3D. I can tell you though that I do like the few presentations of HT 3D better than any commercial theater 3D presentation. To me 3D softens the image almost ( to my eyes) to a barely out of focus type of look, even though the focus is spot on. Again totally my issue/preference not anything to do with Vik's set up.

All in all it was a great session. I still am in awe of what an awesome theater and space Vik has. The next time I go over the plan is to actually watch a real movie beginning to end to get that overall experience.

Sorry Vik, there just is not much negative at all about your space. It all just simply works, and works great.

Regards,

RTROSE

J'aimerais venir regarder un film complet au théâtre Frenzy courbe (ou ce que jamais on l'appelle maintenant :-)). Quand le travail se stabilise un peu et la vie à la prise de maison RTROSE est moins HETIC Je vais certainement vous prendre sur l'offre. Je pourrais même mettre les deux garçons, il vous soyez à cela. J'aimerais pour eux de voir le théâtre.

Vic, you have a great looking and performing theater. I like the fact that it is not all show and no go. With the equipment you have used the theater is well balanced performance and looks. I am also a fan of the A-lens and curved screen. I need to give you a call sometime, when I am in the area. I drive up I-65 north past Columbus, heading to Indy a couple times a year. I hope you and your family enjoy the theater as much as possible. Thank you for letting me help you with equipment. smile.gif

Beautiful stuff. Love your theater! I love how big the screen looks in the photos. Very cinematic (and now I see it IS a really big screen).
Although you've clearly gone a different direction in seating, FWIW: My sofa was custom built. I spent a year looking in furniture stores for a sofa with just the right size, depth, comfort, look for my room unable to find one. Then I realized I could have a sofa custom made, so it is the perfect seat height, seat depth, back height, and maximizes seating in the room to the inch...all for less money than a comparable store-bought sofa.

Thanks! It was for a different room in the house i wanted the info about the sofa for, not the home theater. Great that you could get it custom made and it cost you cheaper than a furniture store smile.gif
