Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

Number 5 looks very nice and comfy. I do like the colors and of course that bull statue!

I wonder if that clock tick tock loudly.. That would be a distraction for me.

Screen is nice and the in wall speakers give it a clean look and feel.

I suspect it looks better when all the lights are turned off.

#5 would drive me nuts because the sofa is right against the wall and the room layout is wrong (using the long wall for the screen). That poor projector looks like its going to overheat in that cubby hole its placed in.
Agree though, the colors are nice and warm and I love the fireplace.

This echoes my sentiments... Wall behind couch and the PJ cubby would be big concerns.

The bull statue is certainly interesting!

Agree with all the nice things said Well done for a setup designed to impress the uninitiated (or maybe their spouse moved at light speed ).

I try to be as good as my dog thinks I am

Agreed! WAF is spot on as well as for the sonically impaired. I bet there are many people that would go nuts when they see it. The problem is going to be the expense involved to fix it once they figure out why it just doesn't sound right.

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

Guys, there is a fine line when creating these "home theaters" between AV quality and Wife Acceptance Factor (WAF).

Compromise has to be made not only for financial decisions but also for aesthetics!

As the saying goes.. A happy wife is a happy home! lol.

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

Number 5 is a typical setup I see with the couch right against the wall. I did this myself in my first HT even though I have over 20ft to work with. MAF (Mom Approval factor) was at play as you always place the couch against the wall. Who wants to see the back of the couch. The only thing I would do differently is lower the left and right channel to ear height. It also seems like the center channel has smaller bass drivers than the L/R.

This looks like a great Canadian HT with the warm fireplace and hot projector air warming the room.
Teenage me would get a lot of action "watching" movies in this room.
I would still rather have this one than #2.

Re: The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

I would also rather have this room than 2. Or 1. For me, the in walls are a fail but in room speakers might be too hard to place with the shallow seating depth. That left surround looks like a small def dech bipoles pointed at the screen instead of the LP. Surround performance will be terrible as well as super boomy bass(already mentioned). I would leave the LR at the height they are since this is obviously not a music system and panning off screen will be smoother. Is that bull on a subwoofer? And why is he pointed backwards? Lol
I would personally try to set this room up 90deg left and defeat the fireplace or use a mount that drops the display down for use. It looks narrow but I think the long way would be better for this space. Visually pleasing room however.
