The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

After years of running the Facebook feed, I've gathered hundreds of home theater photos...I've kept a lot of them. I thought it would be fun to start posting them here – one at a time – to start a running critique thread.

I wish I had gear notes on them... I don't... so hopefully some of you will recognize the gear and chime in... but also chime in with comments/critiques about the design and execution! Some are going to be wicked awesome...some are going to be...uh... questionable.

The pictures are numbered (starting with picture #3)...so if you'd like to add a picture of your own, please do! Just make sure you check the numbers and mark it appropriately! ;-)


So Critique Away!

Let's kick it off with this one:

Re: The Epic Theater Critique Thread

I am not one to critique since the picture looks good to me but on top of the front left speaker, is that a globe? I can't tell from the picture if it is on the wall or if it is on top of the speaker.

Did you see the center channel?

And that front right chair... Weird placement.

Re: The Epic Theater Critique Thread

I barely saw the center channel. It is very well hidden on the floor. lol.

If someone was sitting on either chair on the right side, it would be kind of hard to see correctly the screen. Obviously, the sofa would be the best spot.

Re: The Epic Theater Critique Thread

Yeah, it must be a multipurpose room. I like the side walls, I bet they are good for diffusion. And they just look cool. It would have been a great Star Trek room if it was painted in those colors (Enterprise).

If you hold your control key down & start pressing the + key, it will zoom in with every stroke. The globe in on the speaker! When your done, press the control key & hit the number 0 & it goes back to regular size.

If I got the chairs, I would pull them out into the floor to watch the movie. That would make them the best seats in the house I bet, aside from comfort.

Ha! Globe on the speaker... and it looks like Bongo drums on the left wall?

I like your idea of transforming the space into a space theme...the slanted walls definitely have that kind of space cabin feeling... good call!

Certainly beautiful to look at, but functional? Not so much.
