4/16/19 updates and more cleaning
I cleaned up the AV closet and bar area (with the help of the wife). Speaking of the bar, my little secret for the bar is that the granite is not silicone stuck to the cabinet, so that if I ever have to take the back panel off, I just move the granite out. The granite is so heavy though, that the risk of any slippage happening with it is near 0%.
I installed a ring smart doorbell so that we can still hear when people are ringing our doorbell from within the theater. I’m going to move the ring into one of the columns plugged into one of the lower utility outlets, which should be perfect.
I also spent some time getting all of the components in the AV rack hardwired into my LAN and firmware updated. I still need to update the projector, and confirmed with Mike Garrett that the early on firmware update issues with the RS1000’s are no longer an issue.
Today I’m going to scotch guard the fabric on the wall, to help protect it from stains and such, and i might see if I can find some magnetic strips to work on the main switch box in the room. I’ve got a good idea for how I want to bring those hue switches more flush with the surface.
I know I mentioned this previously, but the Denon Audyssey app brought the room to life. With how efficient the DIYSG speakers are, the Denon X6500H was the perfect choice for my room. I don’t have any regrets, or feelings of being “under-powered”. In fact, I can’t stand to turn the system up past 75 on a scale of 100.
