It has been two years since we sold the original Deadwood theater (and the house it lived in). And now, Deadwood II lives: a smaller house with a larger theater -- seems about right!
The theater is operational, using all the same kit from the previous, minus the AV7702 Atmos processor which I sold at the time. The 4 Tannoy's are indeed here, on the ceiling, awaiting an Atmos processor yet to be decided [ETA: Anthem processor installed for Atmos and DTS:X 7.1.4 processing]. This ceiling is 2' higher than before, making it easier to hide speakers. Key improvements in the new theater:
1) More space. Room is wider, longer, and taller.
2) Wider screen.
3) A separate “projection booth” gives easy access to the equipment rack and PJ, and removes their noise and heat.
4) Improved isolation from the rest of the house. (Separate wing.)
5) Improved door seals and latch.
6) Improved window plugs.
7) Triple layered walls: original 1/2" sheetrock, 1/2" OSB, 5/8" sheetrock, Green Glue.
The room is quieter from outside noise and virtually inaudible in the house -- can play any time of day or night. Happy wife!
The equipment room. Easy access to all the business ends of the gear and wiring. That's another window plug at the back.
