How do bluray and HD-DVD look on a screen that big? Do you lose any impact or does it come very close if not as close to the theater as possible?
AWESOME theater btw.
Going back four years I wanted in walls at the time in my columns,Triad was the best at the time. They are still in place but will likely be one of a couple of things I upgrade in the next year they have performed very well despite being undersized compared to the fronts and subs now that i've upgraded them.
My front channels are Seaton Catalysts
which were designed by Mark Seaton for rooms like mine. They have been one of the best audio desicions I've made. My subs are Seaton Submersives
. There are four each with two 15" drivers and 1000 watts per speaker. These allow tremendously powerful LFE in my room flat to about 7Hz or 8Hz in room.
I did not choose the high power for several reasons. The first is the narrow viewing cone is unacceptable for my theater,there is no AT alternative,no masking system like the vistascope and last but certainly not least, I get 22fL with the reference Studiotech 130 surface so no need for a high gain screen.
