That is totally silly....wait I NEED this. Lol

I was telling my family about this feature and they said “that seems stupid and unnecessary, so you’ll probably get it”

There might be a bit of history for them to extrapolate from.

Always fun to get new toys!

I started out just looking for a rack mount power distributor, then of course I get to looking at the high end surge suppressors and end up buying power conditioners- the Furman Elite 20-PFi.

I got these 1/2 price, open box from an authorized dealer, one for each 20A theater circuit (2). Full warranty still applies.

Unlike a power regulator, which would have a big autotransformer, this has large inductors and a capacitor big enough to kill you (they house it in an ABS pipe to insulate it).

I know there’s a fair amount of debate about how much these help. The way I see it, a true 20A PDU with surge suppression on it’s own isn’t terribly cheap. Even if there is limited benefit to line filtration as far as noticeable difference in picture or sound quality, I see it as a reserve capacitor to buffer the amplifiers. These things can provide 55A RMS current for short periods. They look nice and are well built to boot. The power cable is as thick as one of my fingers.

Here’s a good configuration. Now I just need to figure out how to plug the bottom one into the top one...

Columns are the mission right now. Mostly installed. The rear corners had to be assembled in place since there was no way we were getting them in between the tile and panels in the corners.

Still need the waterfall soffits on the corners.

Thanks so much. I decided to do it that way when I realized I would not be able to put a solid continuous piece of grain along the face of that soffit and didn’t want to have butt joint seams. The columns water falling will break up those sections into ~58” x 12” pieces. The grain will be perpendicular.

Beautiful design. Reminds me a bit of a split top Roubo lol. And love the color you picked for the wood - it's rich without being too dark or muddying the grain. This is really going to be an elegant theater when it's done. Excellent work...

Initial projector box. Lacking any texture or styling, it just captures the thinking. It’s assuming projectors will have cold intake at the rear and heat out the front.

I haven’t decided how the front door will work, if it will be hinged from the top, split in half somehow with the port attached to one door...

I like the idea of hiding an access panel in the rear corner, to make it easier to reach wiring.




If you look at where it is going to fit you can kind of see the logic with the duct work.

Well, pulled the trigger today. Took the wife and kids to the store and we spent a few hours sitting and debating the various configurations and fabrics. She ended up liking the “records” the best for her comfort. I liked them too. So that’s what I ordered. 8 weeks estimated delivery time. Puts some pressure on making progress!

Congrats. I’ve been debating whether or not I should be doing the same soon. I wonder if they ever have sales.

Most places do. I think they are like every other furniture store in the world where they have a high list price and frequent sales. This place was running a Memorial Day sale. I know the online guys are too. I bought from the local place because

A). They beat the internet price by about $200

B). I read some horror stories on here about the online stores and I like the idea of having a place to go to find a person to deal with any issues

C) pump money into the local economy
