BTW, your cinema is coming out exquisite. Who said Eurostyle HC was out?
Who modelled the acoustical laticework, How?
TacT problems: the problems have been documented in detail to Boz over the years so he is aware of them. Put briefly, the lipsync function does not work - I now have a number of sources which require different values for lipsync and the TCS2 cannot support that (it would if the lipsync actually functioned). A more fundamental problem is that the measurement process does not always align the subwoofer to the main speakers correctly, so while it will correct the speakers to the specified targets the relative levels can be out by significant decibels. This can be corrected for manually, but shouldn't be necessary - I wonder how many TCS2 users realise this. So for now it's back to the 861, but I'll keep watching for TCS2 upgrades and would consider switching back in the future.
My cinema is now complete except for the screen and some lighting. The UK dealers (Pulse) for Screen Research have proven astonishingly inept thus far and have caused a huge delay to the project. But if all goes well the screen will be in tomorrow.
Unfortunately the room is now so black (black velvet on walls/ceilings and black carpet) that I've been unable to take a satisfactory picture to add to my gallery! I will keep trying
The room, based on my specifications, was designed by the Acoustic Design Group - they are a pro industy group who design recording studios and screening rooms all over the world for people like Skywalker Ranch, Abbey Road studios etc. The room was computer modelled by their expert acoustician in Japan using in-room acoustic measurements and the architectural CAD design as the basis. Once the room is complete we will do post-measurements and address any issues which come up.
