Good news, Bad News.

Sorry to hear about the wheat allergy. Lots of processed foods use wheat in them, so lots of label reading.

Truly impressive HT build.
My wife makes everything from scratch already... We have as little processed food as we can. This morning i tried some Gluton free bread. It wasn't bad but it also wasn't my normal Killer Bread.

At least I am not allergic to anything in the HT. Hopefully i will get motivated to finish off the last few panels so the HT will be 100% done (until I go Atmos).

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

Wow, this turned out great, and it sounds like you and your family/friends are really enjoying it!
I have the Roger Waters "In the Flesh" DVD(not BR unfortunately), and that concert was superb IMO.
I've been wanting to start my own build, but things have to happen to get it going....when I peruse through these different builds it helps motivate me to take care of duct moving and the like, so I can get going.

Great Build, Thanks for sharing!

Buying more cheap stuff to get better sound is like challenging a dragon with a pocket knife.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

Tonight I listened to my 5.1 version of Rush - Moving Pictures and it sounded awesome... Which got me to looking for software for extracting my DVDAudio Music discs to the HDD. I found some software, and I ripped it to Flac files (individual per song), and then tested it out to make sure it works... It does and they sound great!
I have about half a dozen DVDs to rip now. Next is to find some software for extracting my SACD music to the HDD.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

I have been adding DVD-A discs to my collection over the last few weeks, and i now have a new favorite reference quality demo disc..... Talking Heads - Speaking in Tongues in 5.1 ripped to FLAC. It sounds the best of all the CDs, and 5.1 discs that i have, plus it is the first album in a while that i can just put on and listen to for hours! I had a couple of friends over yesterday (at 2 different times who were both familiar with the album), and they both commented that they had never heard this album sound so good. They also commented that this was the best album they have ever heard on my setup! We were listening at -20 on the Denon, and i brought up the SPL meter on my Android which showed it at 82DB (I have been listening for hours at this level), but it sounded great!

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

One of my Recliners failed so it is being returned to Costco. I decided this time to go with a manual recliner that can be attached to the other recliners, and to get them with cupholders. I ordered 4 Coaster Palladium recliners in black, and they should be here Friday or Saturday.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

New seats just arrived! Now we have a nice rear row, and a mixed front row of a couch, and a power recliner. New seats are pretty nice (non-powered). Next thing for the seats will be USB charging hookups on each seat, mount for Tablet (HT control), and a food tray. Still have to finish the panels too.
