That is still mainly my media room. I’ve changed. Some of the frames and the projector a few times over but the rest of the furnishings are the same.
I had blinds and actual 100% blackout treatment on my windows so it was pitch. Lack in my room with no lights on.
The paint on the walls is much darker flat. Town brown than appears on the pictures but I do have a wife, and she does have a lot of say on the aesthetics of every part of the house including for my office, my game room, and my media room.
She even has a lot of say on the clothes I wear. 😎
That room though, when watching movies, while not a black hole is not noticeably reflective at all and, probably because I don’t know any better, didn’t appear to wash out any of my images or impact the black floor, regardless of the numerous projectors I have had in there.
I’m certain there is an impact as Javs outlines, but to a certain extent ignorance is bliss. I haven’t quantified it and I just never notice it.
As I stated previously, to me there is no comparison in the appeal of a great DLP image to the best JVC and Sony images I have seen and despite the low native contrast ratio and that I recently removed most of the blackout treatment in my media room, except for my.blackout curtains the LK979 is still putting out the brightest (by far), super sharp, clean and dynamic image that I can recall in my media room.
And While the low APL performance is noticay different from what I would With my 11s2 or my previous LCD 3 panel projectors it is 100% satisfying and is much more “movie theater” reminiscent.
The Lk970 not only produces the best image i have seen on my screens, it also gives me a lot more flexibility with ambient light considerations and better hobby-wife balance.
I mentioned in a previous post my wife took down all of our blinds and put curtains up on all of our windows and she loves the new media room more.
Happy wife = happy life!
Anyways gentlemen, Happy Father’s Day to you all. Especially to my new friends on this thread, including Javs - who I have come to find as very well intended, and my LK mentors Dave Harper, 12gage, and tnaik.
I don’t know who those other folks were who received the lifetime bans, but I do know Dave Harper, and hopefully we can all come together to forgive him/them for their past transgressions against us and welcome them back to our family!
I was in a car accident yesterday were
I apparently fell on my head and was knocked unconscious for several minutes. It’s a long story, and while I don’t remember much about it and IIm really freaking sore, I am mostly good and it looks like my brains is intact!
I’m even more grateful for my family and what we have and what we all have!
I woke upnthis morning sore in a lot of places, with some stitches on my foot, but with My life and brain intact and NO headaches - despite a severe concussion and memory loss.
I told my wife this morning that I didn’t feel like I was close to death yesterday but that I feel like if I died today, not to worry about me and my soul because I would have died happy and living a full life.
I’m so blessed to have a beautiful wife to have been with for the last 20 or so years.
So proud of my kids and how they have turned out.
So happy about my granddaughter and my son-in-law. A couple of years ago, my daughter got pregnant her senior year in high school. At the time that I found out, that was the worst day of my life. We made the best out of it, we made my daughter finish high school. I support her and my granddaughter, who both live with me.
My daughter goes to college now, my wife is a housewife and she takes care of m3 and our family, including my granddaughter - who is the light of our lives right now, and I insisted my son in law moved in to our second master while they save money for when my daughter graduates and they move out of our house.
That was the best thing that happened to our family from something that appeared to be the worst thing.
And now on this father’s day, I feel so full of love and blessed again that from something that could have been the worst thing that ever happened to me that I feel such enlightenment.
Since this is a home theater forum, I wanted to add that even though I may. It be able to make it up to my media room for a couple of weeks that my family got me a few UHd Blu-ray’s for Father’s Day and my family watched captain marvel with me last night in my bedroom. 😎
Life is good. God is good!
Happy Father’s Day, all!
I hope all of you have a Happy Father’s Day!
