Dell and Bose? Honestly, Joel... That doesn't sound half bad compared to what I have right now, which is zilch! I'm missing friends and family, but I'm really missing my theater.
I'm kidding, but we have been watching a few movies here and there on the Panny 55 LCD in the living room. I think my viewing angle is like 5 degrees. The only number smaller than the viewing angle is the immersion factor, which is like a 2. Or a 1. I've been trying to watch a lot of comedies and indie films so I can save the good stuff for SCHT2.0. So basically I'm back to where I was before I built the last theater - dreaming, designing, and letting movies stack up that I want to watch on a big screen.
I haven't started any serious design, but this room will be a bit bigger, but not much bigger. Wifey wants two rows of four, so I think the aisles will be about as cramped as they were in my last room, and that's using a smaller, narrower chair. It's amazing just how big a room has to get to fit eight chairs in it with some space around. Anyway, AT screen, all source equipment in a rack outside the room, Atmos, and since I sold my M&K's with the house, all new speakers. Thinking about going all DIY Sound Group to scratch my big-sound-compression-driver itch and because anything else I want would cost a small fortune. Probably Fusion-12 Tempest mains, and V-8 Volt surrounds and Atmos speakers. That's where I am right now. Very early. Just sketches in my mind at this point. Need to figure out if I want to burn the space and go to the trouble to use RSIC clips, or use the very cost-effective and space-efficient solution from the last room. Any/all opinions are welcome. I'll probably start a build thread to flesh out final design issues over the Christmas holiday.
Happy Thanksgiving, guys!
