Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

Ya, #17 should be turned so the long wall is the screen wall but I guess it depends on what is behind the camera if that would even work.
The bookshelf behind the couch would be bad for reflection points. The window to the left of the room is also going to be hard to black out and lastly the rear surround speakers are shooting into the top of the shelving unit so cancellation would be an issue.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

Number seventeen looks like an apartment room setting. I do like the fact that the main room there is the home theater room. Great use of space. Hopefully he closes the blinds or curtain or whatever he has for the window when watching on the projector.

Main:
Samsung UN75F8000 LED TV, NAD T-777 (7.2 Receiver), Oppo 103 Blu Ray Player, Sony PS4 Gaming Console, Wii U Gaming Console, Panamax MR-5100 Surge Protection, 7 Paradigm Reference series 8" in ceiling speakers (AMS-150R) - 30 degree tilting speakers, 2 Paradigm SE Sub

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

I would look for a better solution to the surround speaker setup. They won't perform very good there. Those speakers on the mains look like the leftovers of package deal. I find it interesting how people place speakers that they don't know what do with. A rug would probably help with the liveliness a little. Good to see the couch away from the wall, though the experience would benefit from it being out farther, but that might cause trouble in setting up the front speakers. The angle almost makes the screen look 4:3. Lol

The room "looks" nice, but they need to get a real center channel, ditch the glass top table in front of the couch and with that tile floor, they really need an area rug. , they might need a double set of black out curtains.

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

It's a bad situation from the getgo. But we have to live with what we have. The window wall, tile floors, glass top coffee table (nice catch Spidacat). I think it looks as good as it can get. I would advise some free standing absorptive panels, a retractable curtain for the entire window wall (acoustic as well). As already said, a large area rug (would add some acoustical carpet padding under it) & I would just move the coffee table out of the way during movie time.

What do you make of this? Desirable? Trash?

Those batman shaped speakers look really nice, I little over kill having tower (full body) speakers on the sides. That Bat-mobile subwoofer looks sick, would love to see the DIY write-up on that one.

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

For number eighteen, it is way over the top of course! But, I would love to have it. The drawback would be how expensive it will be to build that room!
I am sure high end speakers and projector are being used here so I suspect the home theater experience will be excellent.

Main:
Samsung UN75F8000 LED TV, NAD T-777 (7.2 Receiver), Oppo 103 Blu Ray Player, Sony PS4 Gaming Console, Wii U Gaming Console, Panamax MR-5100 Surge Protection, 7 Paradigm Reference series 8" in ceiling speakers (AMS-150R) - 30 degree tilting speakers, 2 Paradigm SE Sub
