My wife decided a while back that she wanted new furniture in the Family Room (when I decided to make a dedicated HT, and let her have the living room)...this meant that the furniture she didn't want anymore was relocated to my HT. I am not sure how long it will be before she lets me get a matching set for the front row.

She is very much budget orientated, and doesn't like getting rid of something that is still working.
She was very upset when I decided I wanted a larger screen for the new HT, since she had bought the old screen for the HT. I calmed her down when I told her that I loved her and was very thankful for the gift, but now i wanted to upgrade it one last time (hence the largest screen I could fit in the room .

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

For the last few days, I have been trying to find a holder that was nice, and would fit my new chairs... The only one i found was the one on the Elite HTs iPad chair (of course it is on a $3k chair ). I scoured the net and 90% of the ones i found were mad of plastic. So today i decided i want the one off of the Elite HTs seat. I found out that it was a Luxa2 H4... Guess what it is only $16.49! I ordered one and when i get it in I will check out taking it to a local machine shop to have them cut a hole for my cup holder size or I will see if I can attach a cylinder to the bottom of it so it will fit in my cupholder. If anyone has any ideas on how to adapt it please post them up!

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

I just got done listening to the Mans too Strong (from Brothers in Arms), and I was absolutely shocked as to how deep, and powerful the bass is on the 5.1 version... Since my 2nd row is over the rear sub, my seat was actually transmitting the bass at only -20 on my Denon 4520. I do not recall it ever being so powerful and deep before.

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

Did I also see this project on avs? I love this room! And the pond is fantastic!

I did get a chuckle while skimming your thread, seeing posts about a wheat allergy and another about getting rid of all the smells in the theater, wondering if they were related.

Yup, it is posted on several forums... The wheat allergy and the smells in the theater are not related. The odors in the theater are all from the new construction/furniture. They were all gone until I got the new seats for the 2nd row...the new furniture odors should be gone soon.

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

Just won a Crown D75 amp on eBay... I am going to see how it compares to the T chip amps. If it is as good or better I will look for another one, and replace all 3 T chip amps. I hope to also get a MiniDSP DDRC 88A in the next few weeks too.
Hopefully these mods will make my setup sound even better. If they do I might swap in a Yamaha A1, and sell the Denon 4520... Later this year if Yamaha comes out with a AVP with balanced outputs, Atmos, and DTS-X then I will then upgrade again. Eventually the whole setup will have Pro amps...maybe i will even sell the Klipsch Pro speakers (HIPs), and go to smaller powered Pro speakers for my surrounds, and eventual ceiling speakers.

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

Crown D75 arrived today... I am looking at getting one more, and then i will compare them to the T chip amps. Hopefully I will have a new (old) AVP, and the DDRC 88A by then too.
