Yes we did the tape measure thing and from what we saw it will place us very close to looking at the (Center) of the screen.
Also we were discussing the new location as you that we will then be almost in the middle of the room.
The current sitting to the Side Surrounds as well as the Rear Surrounds really is Not ideal for a fact.
Not like we did not know that as this was all actually set-up by the 1st AV store a great many years ago.
I'm really not wishing to come across like the audio is crappy because it is not.
I'm saying when this is changed it's going to be actually ideal placement.
And as Jason said then when we install the Atmos they will be in the exact location for sound.
Was not aware of the below ……...

I appreciate the kind thoughts Sir.
The Ekornes seating is super expensive but we decided the last time we did things to do it right.
We are both smaller frame people so the Ekornes is perfect for us.
It is some Super Looking & Great Feeling furniture.
Well Jason is excited about this new project as this is what he actually excels in.
If the cost is not so crazy this will happen for sure.
I have not said anything to Cathy (Wife) as I wanted to get the general game plan in my mind and then run it by Jason this morning.
He said this is very doable for sure and when completed you are then going to be set for the next stage once your monies come together.
That ^^^ will be for the Laser projector, Pre-Amp processor, 4K Blu-ray player, 4-Atmos speakers, 4-channel amp, wiring etc.
I will get some of the top of the line Atmos speakers that will match up to my JML Utopia speakers.
I got Cathy to come up in the HT and had her sit and went over in some detail as to what was going to take place.
I even took the time to fire-up the system so she could actually sit on the Stool that placed her approximately 10 feet from the screen.
I ran different Media on the system so she could judge for herself and give me her take on the whole project.
I will have to say, she was 100% in all the way guys and she is looking forward to this and has told me that numerous times through the day.
She works at home as a, Contract Analyst with Cigna Insurance.
We converted one of the bedrooms to an office for her and we share that room together with my computer also.
I can't say about other wives as honestly I don't even know anyone that has a custom home theater.
But I think it is pretty cool that she is not only 100% in on this but actually per her words Excited about it being done.
The Runco buddy is a Killer Machine when it was 1st introduced at Cedia.
It was referred to in Magazine Articles as a Light Engine for it's Brilliant picture on a 120" screen which is exactly what I have.
So it was introduced at Cedia and my guy, Charles, said Runco is running a special to get these out to the public if you want to up-date ???
It was a retail of $30K and I got it for $20K and honestly have totally enjoyed it and still do.

Yes my Good-Man and truthfully one of my Major concerns with the RS4500 JVC was the Fan NOISE !!!
Especially right over and slightly behind us where we sit now.
The Sony 5000 is Silent as it is Liquid Cooled and with that being said it played to a large extent on why I was considering it.
With the New Seating in place I'm thinking the RS4500 JVC will be Tolerable and especially if it really is Not necessary to run it on 100% Full-Laser-Power.
Maybe in my case with a 123" 16x9 screen it won't be necessary to run it Wide-Open ???
Anyway it sure is Not going to be right the heck over our heads !!!
Unless I change my mind and if there are some B-Stock units with Low-Operating-Hours on them at the prices I have been quoted the JVC will be it.
I think I saw something on the other Thread about some New Laser maybe from JVC ???
Not sure as I was concentrating on what I was doing.
Anyway Cedia is coming so we all shall see what comes from it soon.
I Do-Not have the monies anyway as it's going to be a longtime until I make the next 2nd Stage Huge move.
