One thing I'd do is move those DVDs to a different wall. It would detract my eye from the TV, giving me less of an immersive feel.
After I posted my build to the dedicated theater forum, I realized it belongs more in the generalized home theater forum.
As for it not being a cinema room. While it doesn't have a big screen, a projector...yet
, theater seating and sound treatment...it's also not a room where people would just hang out to chat as you would in a living room. As for the seating, I seriously considered and had the opportunity at one time, to purchase six first class airline seats from a Pan Am 707 that was being scrapped in Arizona. Beautiful, unique and comfortable seats, but unfortunately that plan didn't come to fruition. The seller didn't want the hassle of shipping them.
My room was built solely for watching movies, HDTV, and occasional music listening. I also have it set up to receive C and Ku satellite reception from my big dish outside. So maybe it could be considered more of an entertainment room as you said. I guess I could consider the title for my room (Cape Cod Cinema) my ultimate plan for the room.
Funny you should mention those racks on either side of my TV. I've thought about moving them several times, to another area. Just have to find an appropriate place. I could also just drape a dark material over the front of them making them look more like speaker stands. BTW...there are CDs in those racks not DVDs.
Thanks for the input...always welcome.
