Also, I am working on finalizing a purchase of a 32 channel Trinnov Altitude processor, along with JBL inwalls and revel inceiling speakers to complete a 19.1.12 setup for optimal Atmos/DTS-X playback. Dts-x pro is also expected to be released for the Trinnov later this year, so the limit of 7.1.4 for DTS-x will hopefully be a thing of the past!

Congrats!!! Awesome news! Yes for sure get all those purchases done asap haha

Thanks Mike, David, Rad, and Steve! Lots to figure out still. Trying to still enjoy home theater, while also trying to get nearer to Shani.

Got it. She must live in IL?. I used to drive to South Barrington a lot when I was dating back 6-7 years ago and hated all the dam traffic.

Thanks! Tony and I were just recently discussing that. There has to be a lot of home theater guys in Illinois to corrupt with bass and sound

You can list me as tentative. If I am able to make it, it would be solo, as Nicki had already made other plans.

Congratulations from both Nicki and me! That's super exciting news; Shani sure seems like an incredible woman, and I'm sure you two will be very happy together no matter where you end up living.

Now, if you need any help customizing your wedding vows, I'm sure we can help you out. You may want to consider:

For Seaton or JMB,
For subs or for soundbar,
In Atmos or in DTS: X,
etc. and so forth

Seriously, though, this is much bigger news than the speakers or the Trinnov; a truly life-changing experience! And a chance to go from 2.0 to 2.1 to 2.2. . .

Better not spend $15k on a Trinnov with wedding plans upcoming — unless you are willing to buy a BIG rock.

Congrats Alex!

Best wishes! You two seemed to compliment well when Doug and I passed through for the demo day in April! Good choice!

Damn... wow... the link was originally to a 10TB drive at $80. But now its only for a 8TB drive for $105. Still a good price at $105. But nothing like the 10TB at $80.

David, did you get the 10TB one in time?

Haha I did! I didn't even think about not doing it since I've been looking at getting another hard drive.

It's supposed to arrive the 12th. Let's see if Amazon ships it or cancels it.

Edit: Holy cow. The 10tb is now $234!

I agree 100% Art. We all enjoy our theaters, but it is so nice know others who share the passion and appreciate all the effort that goes into them.

Not anywhere as great of a deal as the hard drive, but the main deals thread here shows that the Panasonic UB-820 is on sale for $450 again this week. Not a great deal, but it's been tough finding them in some areas, and it's less than normal.

It's a really great 4K player if you don't plan on using it for streaming or playing back ripped titles.

Also, I am working on finalizing a purchase of a 32 channel Trinnov Altitude processor, along with JBL inwalls and revel inceiling speakers to complete a 19.1.12 setup for optimal Atmos/DTS-X playback. Dts-x pro is also expected to be released for the Trinnov later this year, so the limit of 7.1.4 for DTS-x will hopefully be a thing of the past!
Congratulations, sir! That is outstanding news! <3
