Updating Theo's Theater with SIM2, Vutec, and Krell



Out with the old and in with the new: Theo Kalomirakis updates the Roxy 2.0 with a new screen, new projector, and a new pre/pro.

Thanks to the steady march of technological progress, there is no such thing as the perfect home theater. Instead, much like a garden, you need to tend to it to enjoy the fruits of your labor. The fruit, of course, is the sense of immersion you get from watching a movie in a calibrated, dedicated theater.

It took six years for Theo Kalomirakis to build out his Roxy 2.0 Theater, a process I wrote about here. At the time, I mentioned that Theo planned to update the theater with a 3D-capable projector. As it turns out, he went even further, replacing the screen and adding a high-end pre/pro to elevate the performance of the entire system.


Here's Theo's new screen—a Vutec Vision X DynaCurve FT multi-aspect—which barely fit into the Roxy 2.0

Rather than merely adding 3D capability, Theo sought to maximize the immersive viewing potential of the 13' x 17' theater. That meant squeezing in the widest screen that would fit into the room—an 11-foot-wide, native 2.4:1 Vutec Vision X DynaCurve FT multi-aspect with SoundScreen acoustically transparent woven material.

The 11' Vutec DynaCurve screen is one foot wider and reflects less light (0.8 gain) than Theo's previous screen, a 10' Stewart Filmscreen StudioTek 130 (1.3 gain). I calculated that the new screen requires a projector with twice the light output to match the brightness of Theo's previous projection system, which used a Digital Projection M-Vision Cine LED 1000.


Vutec's SoundScreen features a black acoustically-transparent fabric layer behind the white screen.

SoundScreen woven material offers superior sound transmission versus perforated screens, but like other woven acoustically transparent screens, its gain is a rather low 0.8. Initially, Theo tried a SIM2 Lumis Uno 3D with the new screen. The Lumis did a great job with 2D content, but its light output (rated at 2600 lumens) was still not enough for engaging 3D viewing.

Swapping the Lumis Uno 3D with the Superlumis solved the limited 3D brightness problem. The Superlumis came equipped with an EC (extended contrast) lens, which gives up a bit of maximum brightness for deeper blacks. With the EC lens, the Superlumis outputs 3800 ANSI lumens—more than enough for 3D.


Installing a ceiling-mounted projector like the Superlumis is not a one-person task.

Theo didn't just update his screen and projector. On the audio side of the system, he installed a Krell Foundation 4K/UHD-compatible surround pre/pro, which feeds decoded digital audio to his California Audio Technologies (CAT) amplifiers and speaker system. Thanks to the superior acoustical properties of the woven screen fabric, combined with the fidelity of Krell's pre/pro, Theo's theater sounds better than ever.

I was present for the Foundation installation—in fact, I helped Krell President Bill McKiegan install the unit into Theo's rack. Plugging it in took mere minutes, and dialing in the sound took only a few more minutes. The primary reason for choosing the Krell was the quality of its preamps—in Theo's theater, I heard the same quality and precision that I experienced in my first Foundation demo.


Theo (on the right) poses with Bill McKiegan next to the newly-installed Krell Foundation pre/pro.

The irony of this system update is that it won't last long. The near future promises cinematic spectacles with 4K/UHD video and 3D immersive audio. Eventually, that will necessitate another audio and video equipment update—but not yet. In 2015, Blu-ray remains the king of quality.

In its current form, the Roxy 2.0 makes the most of the cornucopia of content already available in 1080p. Theo has over 3200 Blu-rays in his collection, including 152 3D titles.


Theo's impressively large and well-organized collection of DVDs and Blu-rays.

The Superlumis projector contributes greatly to the cinematic experience of watching movies in the Roxy 2.0. It's a 3-chip DLP design, which avoids the rainbow artifacts that some viewers experience with single-chip DLP projectors that use a color wheel. The result is a projected image that looks solid and seamless. Movies shot on film look like real film on his screen—restored Technicolor productions look particularly lush.

I have not had a chance to watch a complete movie from beginning to end in Theo's theater. But I've watched dozens of scenes from different movies, from black-and-white and color classics to the very latest 3D Hollywood blockbusters, such as Transformers: Age of Extinction and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In its latest iteration, the Roxy 2.0 offers a truly compelling viewing experience.


Chicago looked great playing on Theo's updated system.

Great looking theater! The first shot in the collection of photos makes it look very simple but surprisingly fantastic in quality. I bet it would be a real treat to see in person.

I love these articles! Looks amazing.

The great thing about projection is that you can get a huge image for half the price of a typical (decent) TV, and it's more than worth giving up a little bit of black level for the benefit of having a home theater. All you need is the projector, a mount, and a white wall, which is still way more impressive than a typical TV (as long as the lights are out!).

Theo should have gone with a Trinnov, Steinway, or Datasat... he could definitely afford one of those... and be ready for advanced Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, even Auro3D decoding.

The Krell Foundation looks like it's already long in the tooth.

Mark, sounds like Theo made some significant changes. Compared to before, what is the biggest improvement to the audio? Were any changes made to seating locations?

Seating locations remain the same. In terms of audio, perhaps the biggest change is in the screen material itself. Theo sacrificed a fair bit of gain for the woven screen, but the reward is superior imaging and high frequency response compared to perforated screen. Plus, anyone seated in the front row no longer has to worry about seeing moire or grid-like perforation patterns.

So much for Greece's austerity measures. I'm curious what it costs to do something like this. Every time I look at these images I keep picturing a new Z51....then I imagine myself playing video games on my computer in there. This is truly an expensive hobby, but also every man's dream.

It seems like people that take it to this level are probably replacing equipment that, even when outdated, would trump anything that the average person would purchase in a big box store. What do you think happens to the old stuff?

The original writeup that Mark did quoted Theo as saying "But the equipment were expensive and I would never have been able to afford them without the participation of my friends in the industry (Stewart, Crestron, CAT, DP, Monster, etc.) who saw the theater not only as the right space to showcase their technology but also as a room that proves that you do not need a huge amount of real estate to get into the right mood for watching a movie", so I'm going to guess the old stuff probably goes back to those who supplied it.

I think this theater is fantastic, and I love the aesthetic he took on this one. The gear is pricey, but it also performs. For the typical theater builder, what he's done represents a smart way of doing it. Spend less on the build and more on the gear. If the sound and picture is the most important, the budget should go there first. If you just want a fancy glamorous room to show off, allocate more of your budget to that.

Out of reach of many, but a good philosophy.

How much noise did the cooling system for the Sim2 projector make, given that it puts out 2-3 times more lumens than your typical consumer grade projector?

Great question. Next time I am there I'll measure its effect on the noise floor. Thanks to the extensive acoustical treatments in the Roxy 2.0, I could barely hear the projector. I've owned a few inexpensive projectors, the Superlumis did not strike me as being louder.

Great theater but I'm curious as to why Theo chose to upgrade now.

DTS:X, 4K or LED or laser projection, and UHD BD are just around the corner. Why not wait a few more months?

How? Are they going to add a separate decoder/renderer onto the main unit and link them through digital control? It doesn't have enough outputs to do 3D audio unless I've missed something.

The Foundation was introduced in 2013, i wonder how it's architecture can be upgraded to the immersive technology that wasn't even in existence back then.

We'll see. You may be correct but maybe not. The Foundation is supposed to be upgradable. But we've heard that one before.

Without more outputs, it certainly can't be upgraded to 3D audio. Physically impossible. Maybe an HDMI board can be swapped out for UHD Blu-ray support and HDR video, but I think that's about it.

I could be wrong, but it looks like that Krell is now a very expensive door stop.

Krell would do right by offering a trade-in program if it's doomsday.
