Wow. This is all good advice. I am a complete newbie to AV set up. Did quick search on Atmos , looks like that is a new Dolby system type speakers. I will probably go with Dolby Atmos speakers. Attached is architecture layout of upstairs. Few things that i know:
i) There is going to be proper connectivity for projector, this room is going to be true media room.
ii)There will not be any windows. I plan to have blue color paint. Did some research , looks like for media room dark blue is the way to go?
iii) There will be only 2 lights one on each Scones.
i) Would like to place all the equipment outside of the room. I am not sure where to put it though. I am open for any suggestions based on the plan that i have. I also have no idea if the equipment is outside the room how do i control using a remote? I would like to have a single remote to control all the devices.
ii) I am thinking projector will just have one video input and the devices will be connected through receiver. My input's would be NAS, firetv stick , may be gaming console, blue ray DVD player, USB drive.
i) What will be ideal place to place the speakers. Ceiling or on the side walls?
ii) Should i get recess can lights? May be with dimmer? Can i wire this so that dimms when playing movie
iii) Should i get 5.1 or 7.1?
I really appreciate you taking time and responding. THANK YOU.
