Hey, Kevin! Where the hell do you keep going off to?
Yes and no. I've finally reached a point in a long, long time where my room feels "complete" with no nagging urge for the next item to upgrade or replace. Sure, given the money I'd like to get all sorts of thing changed but in it's current state it is very adequate. But .... I do have plans. That's half the fun of this hobby is the next change or upgrade.
I think the next thing I'll tackle is the side surrounds. As seen in the pictures, they are quite intrusive. I'm thinking about removing the acoustic treatment behind them and somehow mounting them in that area. Will push them closer to the side walls by half a foot which doesn't sound like much but will make a huge improvement in several ways. Haven't figured out how I want to do it yet so for now they stay. Another thing is I might go about "blacking out" the rest of the room. Will probably just get some material each month and work my way front to back. Actually do not need to do this much so I'm in no hurry. I'd love to upgrade all my surrounds and heights but if I do them all at once I'm looking at two grand or so in new speakers. Ugh. Rather not.
Realistically, I probably won't get much new hardware for some time. I see my next thing being a UHD Blu-ray player when they come out. Or not. First generation players always suck ass. Maybe I'll just wait for OPPO's first player. They said they won't have one the first year of the new format so it'll be a while which is fine with me.
So no... not much, Kev. I'm up to my eyeballs in bass and awesome dynamic sound. New projector is excellent and I'll have to quadruple the price I paid for it to get a worthy upgrade in PQ. No complaints about the OPPO 103d player. Atmos sound from my new Yamaha is also excellent. Any improvements in sound will come from different surrounds or better placement of which I have little room for change there.
Come on up sometime and check it out, Kevin.
