Hey, Iowa peeps. Just checkin' in from sunny Utah. We finally got packed up and moved out the end of July. We've been here about six weeks now and finally getting settled in at our new place in the foothills near Salt Lake City. We are missing some friends and family, but we really miss the theater.
I kid, but yes - we do really miss having a theater. Time to start saving pennies for a new build... Stat.
The Utah AVS crowd looks be either really inactive, or practically nonexistent. Maybe it's because they're all out running, boating, hiking, or four-wheeling. The weather is gorgeous here! I think once it starts snowing, I'll post in a few of the Utah threads and see if I can stir the pot. If nothing else, maybe I can shame them into being more active by pointing to the awesome Iowa thread.
So, I was at CEDIA last week, but of course I've ruined my hobby by making a career of it. The only demo I was able to make it into was the Dolby Atmos demo. Great. Need more speakers. I didn't see the new Epson projectors, only stopped at the JVC booth for two minutes (though nothing new anyway), same with Integra, and ran around and snapped a few pics for half an hour. That's it. Didn't see or hear about anything earth-shattering. Atmos was the talk of the show. I heard the Golden Ears Atmos demo was great, as was the Wisdom demo, but they were but two of the many things I missed. Missing the old days of walking the show at my leisure and seeing exactly what I wanted to see with IgnoringMyWife.
Sorry about last weekend, Deewan! Wait, what am I saying… No, I'm really not sorry.
Cheers, guys! Hope all is well back in the cornfields!
PS - My Iowa home buyer negotiated to by my CEO's projector and my speakers, put in his own sub, entry-level AVR, and some low-end LG BD player. Then, I heard he rented the place out. So, now you know what became of the Prairie Home Cinema.
