Willis; Was just looking at your equipment list. We have similar tastes. I'll have to check my model # on the Onkyo but it's an NR 80something, (It's in storage until I can fix it). And I LOVE my old JBS's

I would suggest lowering the screen. It's wa-a-ay too high for seating that close to it. Then you could put the center speaker above the screen.

Regards,
Wayne

Nice post Wayne, I mounted my 70" above the fireplace, after the first week I had fairly severe neck pain.
And I'm a Chiropractor! Some of us have to learn the hard way.

Hello, thank you for the valuable tips.
I can probalby have wall mounted speakers for the surround speakers, and might be able to pull off a in-wall for the L and R, however, if I put an in wall central speaker it will end up behind the projector's screen, wouldn't it be a major issue?

for zone 2 I'm flexible, I wanted to with in-celining to keep the sound system discrete.

What do you suggest regarding the equipment receiver/speakers/projector?

thanks!!!
Just get a AT Screen.

We did the same with our 47" but we are sitting 14' from it so we don't have a problem. Have you seen the new FP mounts that extend outward and then down for fireplace installs?

I can't vouch for what it covers, BUT having seen it recently, it seemed worth sharing. Good luck!

This fault sounds similar to an issue my Yamaha is having. Wonder if they share the same network chip....
I know someone in another forum that bought a Onkyo used and had a HDMI board problem, and Onkyo covered it.

Hello, excellent idea, thanks willis, the center is a little offset but I'm sure I wont hear the difference.

I feel wiser already, what a great forum!

Now to next question.. equipment, surfing around I've put together these two options, an expensive one and a cheaper one:

Expensive
L + R Klipsch R-5650-W pair $700,00
C Klipsch R-5502-W 1 $400,00
surround Klipsch Reference RS-42 II pair $360,00
Subwoofer Klipsch R-110SW $550,00

Zone 2 Boston Acoustics CS280 pair $240,00

Receiver ?? $500,00

Projector Epson Home Cinema 3020 1080p, HDMI, 3LCD, Real 3D 1 $1.400,00

Cheaper
L + R Polk Audio RC85i pair $360,00
C Polk Audio 255C-RT 1 $200,00
surround Bose® 161 pair $320,00
Subwoofer ?? Klipsch SW-110 $300,00

If you went with an AT screen you wouldn't even see the speakers.

good call on AT. I have seen the fp mounts. Just plain Genius. I think they should be included in every home build with the plan being for the TV above the fireplace.

curious, what do you have? I have to say, I do love mine as well. Only a few times I've ever thought of replacing them. I know there're others out there, and I have them on my list but...
Interesting bio. (It says you have an 807 lol)
