Your theater is one of my inspirations for my diy build (the Dutch Confusion thread).

Great accomplishment after you’ve worked on this for so long!

Nice build! How's the shield running for you on 4k? Do you get occasional lags after lets say, 5-6 hours of consecutive usage?

Thanks! The Shield has been running very, very well! Running so well that I bought another one for the Dolby Atmos Gym I build right next door to the theater! Both pull from the same NAS. Cloud powered cinema at its finest! Zero lags, and I’ve used mine 8-10 hrs consistently anytime I telework.

Haaa! Ah yes, the first theater! It brought me much joy for its time, but I had to take it up a notch for this theater!

Oh man just watched all your videos for the build, the final results look amazing. I have a bunch of questions but I want to read through the thread first to see if it might of all ready been asked. I do have one question because I see you watch movies and other content with the Nvidia shield like I do. How do you copy your 4K movies? Currently I have copied all my blurays to a computer and watch them with Kodi. I have an LG bluray player since 4K versions have the better soundtrack than the bluray version.
Also how do you create the demo clips you showed in some of your YouTube videos? I love that idea of showing off the best part of a movie that has amazing audio or visuals and would love to do that too.

Forgot to post a big congrats before I left for a trip to build a screen in a video studio. Your room definitely deserves the award! There aren't too many curved 16:9 screens out there, and while technically there isn't any reason to do it the end result is too cool. Your mojo levels are at least three sexy-magics/second higher.

The rest of the room is so well thought out that it deserves to be on the shelf of AVS home theaters from which others can learn a lot of best (Beast?) practices from.

Cheers,
Chris

Congratulations! This is a well-deserved honor. The theater is amazing and you've shared so much with all of us here on AVS. What an inspiration.

Walking into that space though....

This of course is just a suggestion, but I think the amps should be on display. It adds something that no one else is doing with their rooms.
While reading through the thread this post jumped out to me because I did something similar for my simple build. I had a bunch of in wall grade speaker wire left and thought the plain white sleeve looked dumb. Then I found a YouTube video where someone took basically the same materials and built their own custom looking cables. These cables go from my receiver to my surrounds and atmos speakers and I made some for my LCR speakers.

@Tatts4Life


How did you know what size wire jacket and cable pants to buy? I haven't been able to find anything definitive on sizes. I absolutely love this look. Please send links in a PM if possible...

In the end it ended up being trial and error. If I remember right I initially followed links in a YouTube video and the cable pants were just a little bit too small so I went with 10mm cable pants so that the wire fit but also the white jacket that surrounds the in ceiling speaker cable. Let me see if I can find links to all the stuff I used for my build. Not sure how people feel about in ceiling rated wire and I'm sure there is better rated wire you could use but this is what I went with for my low cost build. I definitely plan on a build like BB when We get a house with a basement.

Here is a link to the video I followed for anyone interested.

Goodness those look beautiful! I need to do this....I’ve actually been considering ways to clean up the wire situation leading to my power rack. I think I’ve found it!!!!

MakeMKV is a program that allows importing of tons of discs. It works with 4K UHD discs and many others as well. The Demo clips are created with an amazing program called MKVtoolNix. It’s amazing—just add timestamps, and BOOM—demo clips created!

Thanks, Chris! [email protected]/second lolol. Beast Practices! Lol...another classic. I’m hoping the thread is helpful for a while (at least until Holograms replace home cinemas) and thank you for my screen! I’ve been eyeing that TAM-4 screen we spoke about a few years ago though....but that’s a different story for a different day!

Your welcome. I love watching build videos all the time. I'm constantly wanting to learn how to build or make things from speaker cables and building an amazing home theater to how to build my own offset smoker. I'm even watching a home improvement show right now while I type this.

Those cables were super simple to make. First one took maybe 10 minutes. By the end I was able to make one in less than 5 minutes. I'll post a photo of what the back of my entertainment center looks like now that I have all the cables organized. I use to be an electrician and and nice clean cable runs look so good to me.

I actually have MakeMKV. I use it to copy all my bluray's and DVD's. Up until recently I didn't know it could also copy 4K movies now. Back a few years ago it sounded like a bunch of hoops to jump through and even then your disc might not work.

As for making clips, I googled after making that post and someone said Handbrake works too. I'll check out MKVtoolNix. It would be really cool to have clips to demo 4K content on our tv or Atmos soundtracks from our Denon avr-X6300H.

There are certainly hoops to be jumped through to make it possible, but the end result is so worth it. There’s a thread on the subject—I’ll try to send you the link once I’m on a computer (it’s a bit clumsy to do so using the Tapatalk app, which I otherwise love).

10 mins per cable is not bad for building cables of that caliber. I’m definitely going to do something similar when the time comes to fully tidy up the equipment room.

I did something glorious yesterday that I have not done since having children: I watched movies all day. Managed to get four movies in: Gemini Man, Isoken, The King, and Gravity.

Gemini Man’s picture quality was astounding—so many people complain about the high refresh rate, but I loved it here just as in Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. Great picture quality—like, possibly the best I’ve ever seen in a movie (not sure if it’s the refresh rate hangover talking).

Isoken was a great movie on Netflix.....watched it with the wife and we know people undergoing the struggle of the titular character (desiring to start a family) so we were in her corner the whole movie.

The King......this movie surprised me with how good it was. Based on Shakespeare’s Henriad, I absolutely loved the script and it unfolded well as a drama punctuated with some action.

Gravity....still amazing. I had not watched the full movie start to finish since we saw it in the theaters in 2013 (our first Atmos movie ever)....but wow....what a movie! Experiencing in The Beast had some consequences......

I thought to myself “oh, it’s in space—-I can turn this up to 7db above reference”.......

Once things started to hit the fan and that bass started pulsating.....a longtime cherished piece of glass sculpture that was recently placed on our mantle danced itself to the edge and decided to jump off to its demise. As I always say with soundproofing is, you may not hear much, if anything above, but the bass energy is hard to avoid “feeling” right above the theater once playback is at reference. Our mantle felt it, and the glass sculpture decided the world was too cruel to go on wasting its days upon that mantle.

OH MAN I bet Gravity looked and sounded amazing on your system. I watched it on my old measly 37" 1080p tv with just a 7.1 system and two up firing ATMOS speakers and it sounded cool and gave me mild panic attacks. A screen like yours and above reference my blood pressure would be through the roof during a few scenes.

So I did some research and found a nice disc drive for my computer. After a few extra steps I am now in the last few minutes of copying my 4K Black Panther movie as a test. Fingers crossed it will look just like it does with my LG 4K player. If it works awesome I will now have all my movies available at a push of a button. That will also free up an HDMI port for something else, PS5 or Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately that will of been about $100 wasted on the player.

Man it was quite the experience! It was far more exciting than I remember it. 7 years is a long time to go without watching such a masterpiece.

Glad you got the right drive and have taken steps to start your 4k digital collection. It will be a bit-perfect file (discs are only containers for the file, so importing it simply copies the file to another container—your hard drive) and you’re in for a huge change in how you manage your media!

I was on YouTube yesterday and my recommended videos suggested "The Beast, Unleashed" and I recognized it instantly as this month's Home theater of the month!

I had looked at your theater when it was featured but I am sorry to say I somehow completely missed the fact that you have YouTube videos on it. I am now proceeding to watch the whole build series. I feel there are far too few VIDEOS on people's theater builds so i was very excited to see those videos.

Congrats on getting theater of the month and congrats on your fantastic theater!

Forgive me if this has been explained somewhere but I gotta ask, what was the space in your home that became this theater? I can't tell from your YouTube videos but it looks like it's basically an entire floor of your home! It's amazing, in any case.

Also what became of the room you were originally considering for the equipment room?

Thank you! And yessss...i have YouTube videos on this theater, my previous theater, and my starter theater (LCD display w/ 5.1). O totally agree on there being barely any videos on theater builds...that was actually the main driver behind shooting the build series!

In terms of square footage, I’d say the theater is maybe 60% of the basement. That original planned equipment room ended up becoming a Dolby Atmos Gym (build thread on AVS is called The Gym, Unleashed”)
