One simple question... If I flew to your place for a demo...

...would you throw in free earplugs?

That is one crazy setup.

You would not have to use earplugs since I rarely plays music louder than 110dB, usually I have the volume down to around 100-105dB. But on film the volume can reach much louder, those LFS effects are sometimes a bit too much, and even I get scared...

It is extremely fun to have lots of headroom in the system, and that totally without problems with drivers and amps! :devil:

Magnificent home theater! I'm especially impressed with cable "dressing" in the equipment rack. With so much equipment connected in complex ways, and with all those cables, you would think the rack would be a nightmare. Shelving, chairs, lighting... all superb. I want one :R
You can be proud!

Really impressive! You have done huge project, hope to have as big room somewhere in the future.

Do you have measured responses, especially the lower frequencies? How this kind of well made big HT room behaves below 100Hz? My HT room is much much more smaller and I am interested to hear how you have succeed with the LFE performance.

Thank you for sharing your most interesting HT project details.
