My Revel Atmos Living Room

Here's our downstairs great room/family room. The squaw's only limitation was that whatever I buy had to look nice. (though really, I was invested in WAF as well - as much as possible anyways)




Audio
L/C/R:
Surrounds:
Wide:

Ceilings: JBL
Sub: JTR 118
Processor:
AMP:

Sources
Tivo Bolt+
Apple TV 4k
Sony UDP-x700
PS4
Xbox One x
Wii

Display
Sony XBR75940e

Surge Protector
Furman Elite 15pf

Remote
URC MX-880

Dogs
Mastiff.
Transylvanian Hound



Winston!



Both dogs lounging about - this is not a "kid free/pet free" home






JTR gloss black sub - found one big sub works better than two "smaller" (yet still big) subs WAF wise

A fantastic and clean setup indeed madhuski. Pleases the eyes definitely, something we all love to see. smile.gif

Something more:

1. Anything special in mind when you placed the sub with driver facing the left wall?
2. Did you run Audyssey on the Denon AVR-4311? How does it sound?

Thanks again for sharing. An honorable mention goes for the quality of the photos posted. smile.gif

P.s.: When you have time please visit my living room setup. (Link in my sig)

Very nice setup!! Premium equipment, great decor, and +1 for the dog:)

Also curious about the sub facing the corner. I have my dual PB12s facing inward toward my entertainment center. After measuring with ARC, it got rid of a nasty null I had between 50Hz and 80Hz.. I'm suspecting perhaps you had a similar problem, or simply to keep the driver away from your dog or daughter?

Regardless, simply a great clean setup smile.gif

cheers

Mogorf - I've seen your room many times smile.gif Very clean and modern. Re: Audyssey I do use it. I go in phases though on what I like -- audyssey flat vs xt32, and dyn eq on/off. I never use dyn volume or dolby volume.

Re: the Sub facing the wall several reasons. At first it was to keep little fingers from poking the driver when I had my Hsu and the cloth grill. With the SVS metal grill, thats less of an issue. Bill Fitzmaurice suggested turining it into the wall. I can't remember the explanation, but he said there would be sonic advantages to it. Lastly, with the SVS IFC controller, it just plain easier to make adjustments this way.

You're right, we do have similar set ups, just a slightly different flavor. Very nice looking space you've got there. I wish I had a basement to play in smile.gif.

This is quite solid. I really dig the look of the natural floor and window trim with that color scheme. Really makes the finish of those Songtowers pop.

I like the clean, wire-free look smile.gif

I think you also have enough wall space to upgrade to a 70"-80" screen wink.gif

Great job, the overall look is very clean and classy. I especially like the window coverings and the sub hiding spot!

Very clean! Very nice set up!

Ever thought about moving the fronts a bit forward? It will improve the overall sound..

The angle of the pics makes it look like they are closer to the wall, but there's sbout 12 inches from the port to the wall (which is what I believe Jim said they needed.)

Unfortunately moving them further from the wall puts them too much in the way of the 5yo and new puppy!

It's from Dania furniture. It's not listed currently on their website (and wasn't a year ago either). It was prett cheap - $299 or so, if I remember correctly.

That's a fantastic and comfy looking setup you've put together. Wow, that sub looks like a black mini-fridge sitting in the corner but concels nicely with the live plant. Only thing that sticks out (like sore thumb) to me is the white Wii but folks gotta get their game on right.

Question: Did you use room correction and what did it set your towers at: small or large? Also, what does a power conditioner do and at what point should I look at getting one?

Thanks for sharing pics of your space!!

Whoops - that APC is a surge protector, not a power conditioner. My bad.

re: room correction, XT32 sets the towers to large, but I change it back to small and let the sub handle the bass duties

How does your DSS sub compare the Submersive you had, and what prompted you to change?

Subjectively its indistinguishable. I don't have my SMS anymore, so can't do basic measurements to see how they'd compare.

Regarding why I changed? To find the right balance of WAF-to-performance

Does(/did) your mastiff ever watch stuff on TV? What type of carpet do you have and did you put any sort of padding under it? It is a very nice setup.

If he sees a dog or hears a "woof!" he'll pay attention for a while. Otherwise he's happy to just sleep on the couch or chew a toy. That shot in the first post, he was just walking by and noted the german shutzhund's we were watching so stopped and watched a bit.


The carpet is just a 15x12 section from menards - the type with built in foam underpadding. We couldn't find a rug soft enough that the kids liked to play on. Plus, these are a lot cheaper than rugs and when the kids spill stuff on them I can just throw it out and get a new one. We usually replace them once a year
