Thanks for reminding me Talley! Rather than search through 70 pages... I added them to the first post. Sorry, I forgot that they got buried in the thread.

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

Now that I see the newest photos I have to admit that what you have accomplished is brilliant indeed. I am sooo green right now that I may actually have to start my own rebuilt.
I dont know where you are Ron but man viewing your room is high on my bucket list.

Good Listening

We are about 30 minutes from San Francisco. We still have some finishing touches to do, but it is 90% completed.

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

The only thing I don't like in this build is that the sound in the front row is more spacious, and the sound in the 2nd row has more bass. What i am going to do is do several room tunes to solve the problem. I will have 2 tunes for the first row stereo, and another for surround, and 2 more tunes for the 2nd row. At least this way I can sit in the 2nd row and listen to music or watch movies and feel the bass, or sit in the front row, and be immersed in sound with less bass. I contacted MiniDSP, and they were kind enough to give me the codes to control the Dirac DDRC-88A from the USB port. A AVS Forum member also has the DDRC-88A and was kind enough to actually get the codes to work. Now i can select which one of the 4 inputs i want to use for a room tune. I will also have 2 tunes for the Yamaha (Atmos channels), and will be able to select front row surround and the Dirac, and Yamaha will switch to the proper settings. If, and when we do move I will not be doing a room in a room, but I will hopefully have a better shaped room that is also fully treated, and maybe 2 more DTS-10 subs.

Thanks guys, it was def worth building as it was a learning experience, and turned out great IMO. I do wish that the finish of the wall panels would have turned out better, but it was a DIY first attempt too, and it is not easy making panels on a house built in the 1960s with no square walls.

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

I just got my 2 signs for the HT back from a friend who made the frames for me. They came out great but one of them got scratched.

When I order more signs for other components I will most likely order a replacement for the DTS-X one.
