With but one row of seats, why not three seats or five seats instead? That way you can get the potential of a time aligned money seat...
ATMOS 7.1.4 is very doable.
You can also drop the screen height, with the single row and use an acoustically transparent screen. I also like the idea of lacing in some acoustically transparent screen fabric, into oversized framing, and establish the screen edges
by velvet covered boards, with the upper boarder being a sliding panel, to basically create a constant width screen.
Media servers I gather, and a htpc frontend?
I also am a fan of the entry door in the back wall, in the corner, as that gives me uninterrupted side walls, for fabric panelled walls.
The Savoy has a "light tunnel" that I have to say, is a pretty awesome feature. I actually have a big want list for my next room and this is basically the bare minimum design I have come up with. The 3 seats are really about a D-Box
platform and 800 pound limit. It might go, as I like the idea of wider and five seats. That entry area is really about a ton of media storage with drawer storage beneath the projector hush box. The south most wall is a run of floor to ceiling media
storage and the entry will have the av rack outside, while the server/ripping station will be hosted in a storage room elsewhere. The end wall will be a feature wall, with an embedded and rotated hdtv for movie posters. Maybe some MDF panels
an some stand off lettering. The idea being me being able to bring some wow features to what will be a fairly hardcore black cave of a home theater, where some nice lighting on a zoned lighting controller, and some interesting side wall fabric panels
with be the only design features.
