Well, the upgraditis bug has bitten me. I've been thoroughly enjoying the theater over the years, but time to go 4k. I bought the Sony 295es, which is a great upgrade to the Panny AE8000U. Comparing the 2, the Panny still throws a great 1080p picture, but 4k and the associated perks make a difference.
Of course, after testing the new PJ out, come to find out the SC-67 receiver doesn't pass through 4k, so of course, gotta upgrade that too. Picture is great with the pj upscaling, so can't wait to see a proper 4k picture. New HDMI cables as well.
While I'm at it I'm adding 4 atmos ceiling speakers. I tell you, it's never that simple, but is it fun.
I thought the Marantz sr6014 for 7.2.4, so any advice would be appreciated on set up. For the original build I went with osb and a layer of drywall will isolation clips and green glue, so it'll be interesting to cut through that.
I've added a few things to the theater over the years, a back wall shelf and posters, which really round out the look. I've been really happy with everything to date expect the seats, which were bonded leather due to budget. The headrest on the most used seat has debonded over the 6 years of use, but as with all thing the seats were a compromise due to budget. Theater pics attached.
