Just wanted to chime in. The wife and I saw Ready Player One last night at the Flix MX theater. We both really enjoyed the movie. It's a bit predictable, but fun characters and great pacing. Technically it will be a killer demo. Excellent use of Atmos and a great sound track.

I just started the book this weekend. I'm just over 100 pages in and I'm hooked. It's very well written and fun to read. Can't wait to finish it to watch the movie.

/ps I'm still alive, been working on my basement again a little lately. So hopefully I'll get the new theater room up and running like... this [email protected]!?!

He lives!

I'm gonna have to pick up the book. Seems like it would be a really fun read.

Books? I didn’t think AV enthusiasts read books....that’s why they make movies . Usually only takes 2 hours to “read” the whole book.

You could have saved a LOT of money on your setup if you didn't need speakers or the projector.

Just a few chairs, and a couple of lights.

Great idea Nick. I can only imagine AVS will add a separate forum for "Dedicated Reading Rooms" and it will take off like wild fire.

So fun fact...if you drop a 10x4x5/8 sheet of fire-rated sheetrock on your pinky toe from a couple of feet off the ground, your pinky toe will turn several different shades of purple and will swell up to 2 to 3 times its normal size.

Surprisingly, doesn't hurt all that much and I carried the rest of the ceiling sheets into the theater after it happened but now my sock feels strangely small.

I keep confusing my intentions with my abilities.

Has anybody built a theater without drawing blood? Hope you get healed up!

Thank you guys for the ideas on the fabric and screen frames. I used ideas from both of those to come up with something that I think will work for this application. I have the false wall up and boards cut for the screen frame. Waiting on the Syfabric velvet to get here sometime this week to finish that up.

As I've been testing different throw and seating distances, I've had the projector sat upon a stack of two dog kennels, an extra door we had from construction and two yoga steps... It is about time to get this thing ceiling mounted. Anyone have any suggestions on which ceiling mount and where to buy it? Going on a 5040ub. Currently a drywall/painted ceiling, but I am fine with cutting out a section to reach two joices and putting in a decorative wood plate to attach it to if need be.

I've always used chief mounts. Very sturdy, easy to install and easy to adjust with micro adjustments.
Ceiling mount: Chief CMA-101
Projector Mount: Chief Inverted Projector Mount
Or a security Mount: Chief RPMC1

For a down tube I always buy 1.5" diameter pipe from menards, home depot, lowes and spray paint it black. Works like a charm and you get to choose the downtube length.

I certainly would be. And unless Mrs. ZLTFUL needed him for something, I'm sure ZLTFUL could be coerced.

I doubt the success of any project where a blood sacrifice has not been made. Especially working on cars. If you manage to get it back together without at least a decently deep cut, it's most likely going to have to come back apart.

I've used these a ton at work (and have one at home):

https://www.amazon.com/Peerless-AV-P...rojector+mount

The gear system makes alignment a breeze. Can't go wrong with the Chief stuff Deewan is recommending though. Widely used and I've never heard anyone complain.

I bought the Peerless in the link before I became a dealer for Peerless and Chief. I still use it with my JVC RS620. If you are a DIY guy and want to save money and don't mind having to readjust on occasion, the Peerless works ok. However, I only spec the Chief RPAM (not RPA) for my projects. Chief has custom plates for JVC, the Chief has 3 axis micro adjustments instead of two, the Chief mounts hold their alignment longer, and I like the Chief 8" ceiling plate for less flex.

From the advice I got above, I went ahead and ordered a Chief mount just before I saw your post. Unfortunately I grabbed the RPA, not the RPAM, not sure on all of the exact differences. How would I go about getting a custom plate for the 5040ub?

Next up, I'm trying to find someone with a 1.5" pipe die set to that I can cut the down tube to the length I want and re-thread one end. Or maybe I'll get lucky and Menards will have something close enough to the desired length.

In case anyone knows of someone shopping for a light rejection screen, I'm trying to help a friend sell a Screen Innovations Series 5 Zero Edge 2.35 120" Slate screen with 1.2 gain. This is a non-AT screen. Screen is in GREAT condition and repackaged in the original box. Normal price is $3000+, he is asking $750 cash.

For those of you on the last CR HT Crawl, this screen belongs to Nick B (not nickbuol) who was the first stop on the tour. Although at that time he didn't have this screen, he had a 100" Black Diamond Series One. He sold his house, dismantled his theater and he is moving to Germany for a two year work gig. He would really like this screen sold before he leaves.

Since Elac has updated the Debut line, the originals are on sale at $200/pair for the B6 and $180/pair for the B5.

If you are in the market for surrounds or a secondary setup, these would be impossible to beat at those prices.

Finally got the frame finished and the UF screen installed. Not sure if I put too much tension on the fabric during install, I can definitely see the weave when up close. Looks amazing from a few feet back though!

I'm waiting for the Volt-6v2 to come back in stock, then plan on picking some up for surrounds and heights.
The denon 4300 will decode 11 channels, but will only power 9.

So I am left with a decision. Do I buy an inexpensive amp to power 2 or 4 of the ceiling speakers. Or... Buy something of higher caliber to power the LCR. I am running htd level 3 towers up front currently, but intend to sell those in favor of getting three htm-12s or elusive 1099s.
Both of which are pretty high sensitivity, so I don't know that I NEED a nicer amp, but I could be talked into it. Maybe an emotiva 3 channel for the fronts?

Thoughts /suggestions?

I'm always a fan of external amps, even if it's not just for the power benefit. Especially for the front sound stage. The Volts will be easy to drive by the AVR internal amp. I'd suggest getting a 3 channel amp from Emotiva for your front speakers. If you have about 2 weeks to wait, I can offer my room as a demo. I'll have 1099's up front and they will be powered by a Emotiva XPA amp.

Watched Birdman last night for only the second time, it’s been awhile since my first viewing. Can’t remember a movie that benefits as much from watching it on a big screen with surround sound.

It’s shot at 1.85:1 and when you add that almost every shot is up close, things are huge in this movie (sorry scope screens). This grabs your attention and never really lets go, at least for me anyway. The surround is more impressive as it’s well utilized with ambient sounds in just about every scene. I really enjoyed when the camera rotates and the sound does too, it’s not always anchored up front.

Errr.. whaa? My 1.85:1 picture isn't any smaller than it was when I had a 16:9 screen. If you are going scope and making your 16:9/1.85:1 picture less immersive then you're doing it wrong

I need to put this on my list. Travis was saying how great the soundtrack is and now you're giving it 2 wings up.

Not gonna lie, a little bit offended that it wasn't on your list from my recommendation, but whatevs.

Best sounding drums I've heard in a long time.

I love my iPhone, but it will never replace my turntable. I've never seen Titanic OR XXXXXXXXX. Alexa is a stripper name.
