  1. System Setup and Connection

  2. Home Theater Design and Construction
    As previously stated... it is time to upgrade to ATMOS. I have put it off for long enough, but not without good reason. First of all, I just plain have not had time over the last couple of years. Since leaving my position at SVSound and starting my own gun shop, it has been crazy. Getting...

  14. Home Theater Room Photos (Finished Rooms Only)
    A few photos of my room. Before: It was a pretty bad setup, with the screen perpendicular to 3 floor to ceiling windows. Bad pendant lighting. I won't even bother showing you the before shots of the other end of the room. So I spun the room 180º. Moved to a 115" DIY Seymour CenterstageXD...

  19. Audio Processing
    Hi all, first post here. I'm usually at the other major forum but due to lack of traction on this topic I thought I'd post here. Anybody who reads up on acoustic treatment will encounter the commonly held assertion that acoustic diffusion is just as important as absorption when treating one's...

    Hi all, I am thinking to update my HT installation, and I need 3 behind screen speakers, and 2 surround speakers. I had a look to DIY Sound Group but my problem is I am leaving in Europe, so I have to add the shipping cost, and even with the cheapest by boat, I obtain quite the same price as...
