Nothing wrong with that!
At least you have a 7.2.4 system and I am still into 7.2.


One day, I want to do-it too.
Since the day I got the AV8801, I felt in Love with music again, so I do not want to downgrade to a cheaper Audio Processor.
So I am just waiting very patiently that DTS come on board and buy the AV880? or maybe something else that can be refer as reference Audio Processor (around $4000).
I understand the diminish return point, but this would be my last up-grade due to my age.


Getting 2 more pair of my current surrounds speaker.
https://www.aperionaudio.com/speaker...kshelf-speaker and matching amp for my Outlaw Audio 7700
http://www.outlawaudio.com/products/7500.html


So I have to be patient for this kind of money.
Last up-grade and I do not want any "what if".


Enjoy your system

Yes it is
In my case, I have no echo at all


It is call, "room acoustic treatments"
I did just the basic, but a lot more could be done (bass trap, unfortunately I do not have the room in corner to do those).


See post #19 of this tread for basic information.


For your info, room acoustic treatments IS has important as your speakers and the quality of your electronics. You can take some very good speakers in a bad room (no acoustic) and will sound worst than much lower costing speakers with good room acoustic.


Not everyone can do room treatment like I did.
Book shelves, curtains over windows... can help, just have to use your imagination
Any little bit help!


Hope this little bit of info help.

I'm really sorry for your loss, Ray. Here is my companion that I hope is watching 4k films with me from kitty heaven. He loved being outside and that Brookstone lazy boy was his, and when we wanted to get rid of it, he wouldn't get off it because it was his so we put it outside and he would still only hang out on that thing! I miss him every day.

Very nice!

I feel inspired. Perhaps a projector is my next big purchase after my wallet recovers from speakers and subs.

Absolutely amazing room and AV setup, Ray.

Thank you


Another Big thanks for the "like" on post #27
This little guy was a lot more than a cat that become part of your family.
He was a friend to me. There was not a single day that he would not wait at the door for me, when I was coming back from work, always there.
My wife and I still have tears, when we talk about him.


I am glad my room inspired you.
A front projector is a very nice addition to have, as long you do not go broke to get one.
My kids think that I am rich to have such a room and have no clue on how much some of that equipment cost. They do not understand that it was over a period of many years.
One piece at the time.


So, you are wise to pay for the speakers and subs first.
This give you lots of time to check projectors to see what will suit you best for your need


A year or two. can go by, very fast.
Good luck in your future purchases and your set-up.

For the cables.
Going from memory, you are going to go in-wall and use the proper rated wires.

A very important information. Only finish, the part out-side the wall, not inside since it could act like a wick on a candle, inside the wall. And this could deny a claim from a fire, from your insurance. Even if your cable was not at fault and not near the fire.

Got it. Yes cables in walls are UL rated and yes I was only doing the walls out - from the wall plates to the speaker terminals. Wall plates got finished today! Just waiting on cable parts to arrive to start the work on them! I figure each biwire cable will be about 2 feet long. Cant wait to get started!

For the bass department, and speakers and power for a matter of fact. I like to over kill
For the bass, mine are set to +1Db, pretty well reference, just 1 Db hot, so not really need-it.
The rest of the system is reference, according to Audyssey X32 calibration.

Just like to have the extra power if needed
Just like the quote from "Aliens vise Predators", when ask why she had a gun. "It's like a condom, I rather have one and not need-it, than need one and not have-it."
I love this quote

How big is the room? My room is approx. 12'w X 16'd. We have 6 people in the family, so I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to fit that many comfortably in a small room.

12 x 18', so just 2 ft longer

What do you guys and galls think?


Should, I bother with Atmos and DTS-X for this room, or not?


If I eventually up-grade, it would be a new 4k or what ever is the new format first, then, a new AV processor with matching power amps (just less per power) and matching speakers.
Still expensive at the end, for the Audio side for a very few movies at the moment, but thinking for the long haul.


Just looking for honest opinion and some experience in this department for Audio wise, for this type of room (2 or 4 speakers for the ceiling, if you opt this way)

Also got the new posters installed in the front entrance.


Work out perfect, and inch and a half from the back corner wall for both;
Left one, inch and a half to the corner wall (24 x 36)
Right one, inch and a half to the light switch plate (24 x 32) since they were different posters size.


What are the odds


My last post was a little bit of a downer, but how many Cats that people know that watch movies?
And He was more than a pet to me, he was a friend so I thought he should be included in my theater tread.


I will post pics, next time my sister in law come to visit.


Come back and Enjoy my little piece of Heaven

Calibration is now done

Still no new pictures to posts, but enjoy the sound of the new calibration after I got the Marantz fix and me sitting in the perfect spot

Your room is really inspiring. I am especially interested in your comments about upgrading your sound via acoustic panels using a mirror to find the sound reflection points. Part Express sells acoustic panels, but I wonder if I can DIY something similar using foam packaging in my companies shipping department? (although the PE panels appear fire-treated for safety)

Thank you about the compliment about inspiring


For "something similar using foam packaging in my companies shipping department".
Sound wise, it should work to help a little, how good? Who knows?
What I know, is everything thing that differ reflection from sound will help, some better that other.


PE stuff is a great example of mid end room treatment and some companies specialise into-it.
I do not see anything wrong doing-it the way you want, since even a curtain, bookshelf with book... do help, but.


For "(although the PE panels appear fire-treated for safety)";
I strongly recommend that you check with your home insurance, they can denied a claim for any little reason (inside wall speaker not rated for-it, even if it was not the cause for example).


For the mirror trick.
You need an extra person, and can be done very quickly.

I used the mirror trick to don't forget to install a panel for your first reflection for your center channel to. It should be in the back of the room center. I built all my panels diy and saved a ton of money. As for DTS-X it's worth the money if you ask me. I have a 7.12.4 setup and DTS-X brings a lot of fun into the room.

@darthray , you have really nice setup my friend.


have you been happy with the Verus speakers, did you find the center speaker good and can fill the room easily, I am considering it with Verus bookshelfs in a room 3.5 X 3.7 Meters for a pure HT use.

I got the VERUS Grand series I, and yes I am very happy with them, they can play loud without any sign of distortion with lots of dynamic


The series I is on the way out, but they still have some to sell.
The series II is said to have improve on a few things.


Better crossover, tweeter and a few minor adjustment.


From what I read, the main difference should be;
Series I, neutral sound with a hint of lay back sound,
Series II, neutral sound with a hint of brightness sound.


I could be wrong since I never heard series II.
For series I, again, I am more than happy


Hope this help a little and Thanks for the compliment.

Here a link about the improvements
https://www.aperionaudio.com/explore...THE%20UPGRADES


If you do not use a sub, the improve bass might be important.
If you intend to use a sub, not so much since most of us cross there speaker and sub at 60 or 80Hz.


Just more info, so can make an educated decision.

Indeed they do
I had to settle for the 20Hz setting, 15 was creating Way too much vibrations from the wall, ceiling...
A lot more distractions than benefit

Wish me luck, I got one shot at this, if I screw-up, it mean I need a new screen


I am changing my current screen sliding system (reason, sometime you have to fight to open the screen), using filing cabinet slide system for drawers something similar to this;
https://www.aosom.ca/tools-home-impr...FQ-2wAod7bIE8g


And will use some of these to hold the screen (aluminum frame is too weak for a tap solution);
https://www.rona.ca/en/spring-toggle-bolts-0484186--1


The main problems, other than a lot of maths for distances on the top of the screen and height to ceiling/distance from the wall are (spend hours to measure and re-measure);
The wheel holding system has a 1/4" ID hole, the screws are 1/8" OD and the toggle need a 3/8" OD to fit in (actually a little bit bigger if you account the little side gizmo of the toggle {will take care of those with a jigsaw}).


The way I will remedy the 1/8" screw center to the 1/4" hole of the wheel system and the big 3/8" on the top of the screen, so everything is center is;
Using some of these, found one that is 1/8" ID (for the screw) 1/4" OD, and one that is 1/4" ID and 3/8 OD

So far I have cut some tubing to length of 5/8" long for the 1/4" OD tubing and 1/8" long for the 3/8" OD tubing, and glue them perfectly so the 1/4" OD fit into the wheel system and have a 3/8 gasket from the 3/8" to fit into the frame, so far so good


Once, I verified that the 3/8" gasket actually fit in the hole made on the screen frame, I will glue the combination of those home made tubing's into the wheel system.
And will keep you guys posted.

A quick follow-up from my last two days.


Day one went fairly well, and if you screw-up, it will be a new screen mistake


After using a 3/16" meatal bit to pre-hole for the 3/8" (after lots of double check upon more double check, to make sure everything align perfectly).
The holes were made on the top of frame, now the question was, will my 3/8" tubing fit? Yes, so far so good
Second check, do my holes align with the wheel holder? Another yes
So a this point, I glue the tubing into the wheel system.


Next step was to install the those;

I was going to use a jig saw, but could not find my blades
So thinking outside the box, I try to use the 3/16" drill bit to make the hole bigger on the front and back of the screen.
After 40 minutes on the first hole, I decided to use the 3/8" bit instead, it still took 10 minutes or so per hole until the toggle can fit nicely in


This was the most critical part of the project, and must say went very well
