I don't recall reading the final equipment list but I'm sure whatever you selected, it will be a fun place to watch movies.
Very, very nice!!
Thanks a lot. Things aren’t perfect, by any means, but I’m optimistic that the result will be good.
I haven’t finalized all of the equipment, so far I have a full array of Paradigm elite speakers on the way, 9 surrounds and 4 ceiling. For amplification I have 1x MCA325, 2xMCA525, and an M1 coming to drive 4x Fi IB315v2. The amps are pricey but I want to go all fanless.
I have an old Denon 3310ci that I may use in the short term, I feel like we may be on the cusp of new equipment coming with the release of HDMI 2.1, so maybe I’ll try to wait until January. Otherwise the go-to 13 channel prepro is of course the Marantz 8805.
Still waiting on the projector too, we will see what the fall brings.
I’ve been busy today putting insulation in the columns before they get installed. In the corners I’m putting it on the wall since they’re not really boxy enough to hold in the insulation.
I used some plastic paneling to fashion makeshift washers to screw the insulation into the corners. This plastic is actually the material used on the bases of skis, I had some scraps. The R30 insulation makes a nice fan out effect when you pinch it into the corner!
