The combination of size, light, clarity and room shaking base ,together, was beyond anything yet for me. No single aspect or component made this but the integration and a great film was the thing.
Anyway , I'll stop gushing for now but I want to thank all of those who have worked hard to make this happen for me...thanks !!!
P.S. Let me throw in Jim Peterson , a man I've never met or even spoken to but I know, from others, through his Lumagen and almost unbelievable support, really has made my theater possible.
It’s has truly been a pleasure to work with you!
I am honored just to be involved with this upgrade. Thanks for allowing me to help guide you through all the latest audio/video upgrades.
Working with a team of people like Ken Whitcomb and Mark Seaton, only made this experience even better.
From your initial upgrade to the 5000ES, to the addition of the 16’ wide Vistascope, we were able to stay focused on the target and execute things quickly and professionally.
Then, after so many years of not wanting to touch the surrounding fabric walls of the room, you gave me the opportunity to do so, with a promise that the overall aesthetics of the room wouldn’t be harmed in anyway.
That allowed us to replace your original 7.4 surround sound system with a full JBL 11.6.6 Synthesis system. Not only did you upgrade your mains to the JBL M2 Studio Reference speakers, but every single in-wall surround speaker and in-ceiling Atmos speaker is also based on the same award winning M2 technology. Pair those speaker with 6 of Mark Seaton’s subs, and you have an audio system fit for the finest mixing studios anywhere in the world.
The final icing on the cake was adding a second 5000ES projector. With that stack you are able to get 72fL on a 16’ wide screen. Not only does that stack give you the extremely bright SDR images you like, but still leaves you plenty of headroom for all the specular highlights of HDR.
Your room has always been the pinnacle of Home Theater performance, and once again you are leading the pack into the next decade. Rarely does a day go by where your name isn’t mentioned in some post on AVS. There is always someone saying, “Art has done this, or Art prefers that, or if Art says it’s so, then it’s so”.
So what’s left to say except, Happy New Year! I can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2018!
Best wishes to you and your family!
