Sorry I missed this...

The A5's are awesome. They project a wide soundstage...I love them.

How do compare the 5's to the 7's?

Gee, that's one amazing basement, and people think heaven is up - looks like the downstairs is pretty heavenly to me. It certainly looks like a lot of fun . It also looks incredibly nice - the theater, the game room, the gym; it all looks great! You've created a wonderful retreat down there.

WOW. I love the room. The wainscoting panels, the lighting with all of the pinball machines glowing softly, the whole thing looks like a place I could spend some serious time hanging out in. Really great work.

Re: SUBmarine Home Theater

Time for an update to the SUBmarine theater.

Quite a few months ago I ditched the center channel and replaced it with a tower. The photo really skews the scale and size of everything (for some odd reason)...but you can see it fits just under the screen. The improvement in sound quality across the entire seating area has been huge...very happy with the change. Also, four in-ceiling channels have been installed for full Atmos. I occasionally kick around the idea of swapping out speakers altogether, but I'm amazingly content with where I've taken the RTI-A series speakers...so much of sound is proper set-up and room treatments. And I think they've proven to be fantastic home theater speakers. So for now, they stay as I fight urges of upgrade-itis . I have been keeping an eye on a potential change on the projector front. But I'd like to see where next model year takes us....just waiting for HDR to properly burrow itself into the industry before swapping it out. I've also recently become THX video cal certified and have the calibration gear - properly calibrating my JVC really put some extra polish on the already great image it was producing.

Now onto the rest of the basement compound (which has now become more of a lair of entertainment that is difficult to emerge from)... some of you know that my other "obsession" is pinball. Our game room has continued to morph as games have come and gone and I travel further down the rabbit hole of bizarre obsession and chasing better playing skills. I've expanded my collection back into my workshop...slowly removing shelving and possessions that we no longer needed, in order to make just a little bit more room for my collection. I still have a few more tricks up my sleeve to fit just a few more. The game room has an old 100 CD wall mount jukebox from a bar up in NYC, darts, a Skittles table, an old Pioneer 55-inch plasma for sports and console games for the kids, and a SuperChexx Ice Hockey game featuring the Caps vs the Flyers. Lots of entertainment if the mood strikes.

Something happened to the old photos in this thread...so I thought I throw some in here as a refresh.

That's quite the collection of pinball machines! A true recreation room no doubt. Looks great.

Re: SUBmarine Home Theater

It's ever growing...have a new one coming in next week and an older one leaving. The downside to the hobby is the overall weight of the machines. (between 280 to 330-ish pounds) which makes buying/selling/trading an event unto itself. I had to pick-up a self-powered stair climbing dolly to make it easier on my back...just way too much for this old body. But, to me, the hassle is worth it. Really have enjoyed learning how to work on the games - bringing old non-working games back to life is pretty cool.
