Same here! I once bought an used amplifier from a retired gentleman in a very wealthy area in Washington DC. He showed me his 2 channels music room, which has speakers, amplifiers and sub-woofers that are costing many more times than my house! So yeah, there is world that me and you would never know!!!!

I drive an 07 Chevrolet Avalanche with 165k miles. Wouldn’t mind something a little newer but can’t seem to find my monopoly board.

I got a 2010 Silverado WT (work truck edition = little to no creature comforts!) but it's paid for and it sure is nice not having a big car payment with big insurance premiums. And it gets me from point A to point B just as reliably as a Veyron! Although admittedly not in as much style

Congrats on your theater. Very, very nice!

A Veyron is very cool indeed, but I doubt it can match the experience this theater can give!

The 8802 I had is now a distant memory in my system and I'm glad to have put a period of years with Audyssey RC behind me. I'm not suggesting something as far as I went to processing would be needed or wanted (MX160), but even something like the Anthem AVM60 would be worth considering as a pretty low cost update.
We are not using audyssey. We are relying on the 2 qsc units with professional room design and calibration. It really does sound incredible!

I'm probably off base.
The triads are used as “ balancing subs”. The Seaton’s are not eq’d down to their level. Maybe Shawn can explain this better, but my understanding is the balancing subs smooth out the frequency response in the room so there isn’t much variance from seat to seat.

Triad subs are meant to give a smooth response and better seat to seat consistency. They primarily work in the areas of modal problems and not in the ULF range where the Seaton take over. Also, there is no Audyssey correction. All correction is being handled by the qsc DSP 322’s. Only thing the Marantz is doing is processing the codecs and video pass through.

Ok, that's good to hear Jason regarding the QSC handling the REQ nicely for you. But is there any digital time alignment happening in the this setup (noting of course that's not quite as simple with a two row theater)? - @RapalloAV -reminds me a bit of your setup Murray and you've got 3 rows. I don't want throw out temptations in equipment, but your room totally justifies it, much as per Murray's. I'd love to see you demo a processor with Room Perfect or even Dirac in there. BTW, you didn't have any feedback on my projector comments about brightness on the 1.0 gain 160" screen, again something you and Murray could compare notes on perhaps (except he's kept it manageable to 145" for his RS65)? Cheers

I’m happy with the image but I’m sure I could use more lumens. Right now I’m running in high lamp. Hopefully there will be some projectors in the near future that will offer good contrast, greater brightness, and cost of under 10k.

Next gen will offer laser and lumens but won't be under $10k, but not that far off. Not sure why you're striving for such budgetary levels with a deserved cinema my man.

Only so much money to go around... and out of all technologies, the price you pay for video performance drops the fastest...but his image looks awesome... but as we all know, it could always be better!

The stuff I spent money on won’t improve value of my house, I would take my stuff with me. But anyone looking for a house with a home theater will probably spend a ton to get a house like this.
I’m not saying I’m going to spend the next $60,000 making a room like this, but it makes me wonder what I could do if I just stop buying electronics for a while and invest in the infrastructure of my rooms.
I thought wiring 5.2.4 through attic into a media closet in the back of the room was a big deal. I wonder what I could do if I spent on the room instead.

Thanks so much for sharing this build. It’s beautiful and one to aspire to.
The money you spend on your infrastructure and the room itself will make a bigger difference in your sound and picture quality than 80% of equipment upgrades, so it would be a smart investment in your overall enjoyment.

Top tier HT; huge spacious room @ 5,200 cubic feet (26x20x10), 160" wide scope screen, designed by Shawn, your sweat equity.
I'm just curious, what's the noise floor db wise? 24db?

People who have not experienced a quiet HT and how that enables dynamic range to be appreciated need to visit your HT!

Kudos on HToM, enjoy the HT and the memories it enables.

Thanks! Not sure what the measured noise floor is but it is very quiet. Can’t hear the air when it comes on even when there is no movie playing. I remember in our old home how annoying it would be when it rained or stormed.

Awesome, stylish theater there, Jason! I don't have enough words in my vocabulary to describe my deep jealousy.



I just ordered three Triad Gold LCR's for fronts and was wondering how you feel the Silver LCR's are doing timbre-wise when playing a Dolby Atmos track? Are you noticing much in terms of voicing differences as sounds and whatnot pan around the room?



Trying to figure out if the Gold Omni SE's, though voice matched with the Gold LCR's using the same tweeter and midrange, have enough dynamic OOMPH to keep up or if the Silvers would be better as surrounds. I'd love to snag more Gold LCR's, but it may not be in the cards financially.



Thanks and enjoy!!

Listen up, studios! Dolby Atmos Lite™ print-outs must stop!!

Sorry, just seeing this.... No, everything is matched well and sounds incredible. What did you end of doing in regards to your setup?

Changed out the rs500 for the JVC NX9 and added the panamorph paladin DCR lens. Really a nice step up in brightness and image sharpness.

That was the kind of confirmation I was looking for, thanks! I haven't added anything yet. I'm still using some previous Paradigm Studio 20's in lieu of Triads for the surrounds right now. I'm slowly working my way back to getting Triad replacements to go with the Gold LCR's and will probably end up with the Silver LCR's as you and others don't seem to be experiencing a noticeable timbre imbalance. I did purchase a Monolith THX 15 as a sub upgrade and it definitely hits with tight extra low frequency bass compared to my older HSU.

Listen up, studios! Dolby Atmos Lite™ print-outs must stop!!
