Didn't really go as planned, we were too busy talking to REALLY do any listening..
I got waterboy to grin like a 5 year old on Christmas when I fired everything up and gave him a demo of Dredd.
Darklord brought over some good sacd's and I REALLY enjoyed Elton John.
We got my Uxl's bouncing like queers in a weiner factory on the opening of edge of tomorrow, thought we were bottoming them out on the last bass note but when I pulled them out of the cabinet and tried them again free air to eliminate the cabinet it's an air leak in the cabinet or port chuffing because there was no sound or sign of distress in the driver even at **** off crazy levels... so I'm gonna build some new enclosures and double up wooferage for next go round..

It's all good, was a great time anyway. I would've liked to have done a little more critical music listening but... oh well another time for sure.
Yeah the drivers are fine, we were only putting a few hundred watts to them at the time so it definitely isn't a driver problem. further testing is required.

For the mainstream stuff, there's bestbuy and Vision.
Legacy - really high end stuff like Accuphase or Mchintosh
Sounds of Music - mid to high end like Paradigm, B&W, Runco
General Audio - Paradigm and some mid end stuff
K&W - Mid to high end like Mission and KEF

Hope this help.

Hello all,
Does anyone know of any locals that might have implemented Atmos in their theater? @Fattykidd and I would love to hear it set up

I plan on going to watch SW at Chinook, that would be my first taste of Atmos.

Oh, there's no 2D Atmos, only 3D Atmos screen in Calgary.

So.. any of the Calgary gents have Atmos installed in your room ? I'm really interested in hearing a proper implementation.

Anyone in this group still interested in meet ups? My house is just finishing construction (I hope) and going to start my multi year planning for the basement theater room. Would like to come see some theater rooms in person and audition some rooms and get a sense of what can be done with what amount of money. Especially if some people went less extravagant on speakers and more on treatment and vice versa as I don't think it's in the budget to get both done.

Do any of you guys still get together?

Hey guys, I am a fellow enthusiast in Calgary. I have been looking to meet some guys that have an interest in home theater. Also, I have been looking around to see if I can find a fellow Calgarian that has done some DIY subwoofer builds. Anyway, I see that there hasn't been any chatting on here since 2018, I hope I am not too late to join the fray.
