Jonathan,

Mine are Berkline 13175's, in bonded leather with the power recline.

The bonded leather isn't holding up that great, and isn't the best quality in my opinion. I should have spent a little more and went with leather. They are pretty comfortable, don't take up too much room and I like the styling.

Brad

@dlbeck has some nice comfy chairs too! What are yours David?

Love my Palliser Wills. If I have one complaint, it is that they are too comfortable, and sometimes make it difficult to watch a movie when my eyelids start getting heavy.

Wish you guys were more local, really enjoyed hanging out with you in April!

OK, one of the three I had in mind should be on its way..... Will let you know once I get more info. I'm thinking it would be a late afternoon/evening to take more advantage of light control.

OK, so any interest in getting together 12/1? I should have a few new projectors to play with, at least two.

I should be able to make that work. Also by December the sun goes down so damn early that light control shouldn't be much of an issue.

I turn the sharpness on my TV all the way up, because that's how I like my picture... real sharp.

I'd love to attend. The earliest I could make it is 6 p.m. Great point by Steve - we'll be good to go from a lighting perspective.

Not a projector, but last summer I got a 77" LG C8 OLED. I'm still trying to track down a calibrator. D-Nice has been stringing me along since July promising to come out, but hasn't yet. I'm waiting on others to come through the area, but it seems like that takes a while. Anyway, Dolby Vision is amazing on it and it's amazing how it goes pitch black even when it's still on. I've enjoyed building and watching a collection of 4K UHD blu-rays.

From one picture, it seems like you did that room right!

The 2018 GTG sounded like it was awesome and participants had a great time! I wish I would have known about this section on AVSForum! I'm looking forward to the next one. I see there's a 2019 GTG thread posted here:

https://www.avsforum.com/forum/61-ar...9-a.html?amp=1

If you haven't subscribed to that thread and you are interested in the next Twin Cities GTG, you should subscribe.

In the meantime, if you are in the market for a 4k HDR projector, let me know. I just purchased an Epson 5050UB from an authorized Epson dealer,
projectorscreen.com, and had an issue with the first one, and they sent me a brand new replacement. The replacement is working great. If you want a demo, PM me.

However, I've decided that I want the 6050UB instead and am willing to pay the big price difference to get it. Rather than paying the dealer's restocking fee, I thought I would try to sell the 5050UB myself. If you are interested, PM me. Here's my for sale forum post with more details:

https://www.avsforum.com/forum/252-f...tor.html?amp=1

Thanks for reading! I hope to see you at the next Minneapolis area GTG!
