    I am, still, in the process of trying to get my cellar converted to a home cinema. Once this is done i intend to have 9 spotlights rated at 50w each in the cellar. I would ideally like to control the back 6 and front 3 separately, the front 3 being closer to the screen.

    Am i best just to buy 2 separate dimmers such as the varilight dimmers or is this something that the Lutron Telume could handle? Thanks Inza

    I have a similar setup with 9 50W LV halogens and I use a 3 zone Grafik Eye (2 zones for lights, 1 zone for lamp sockets). The Lutron Telume would do the job, but they only have one zone each, so you would need two next to each other.

    Thanks for the response, i thought it would be two dimmers unless i go to for two or three zone.

    I might read up more on the Grafik eye, especially with the power buy prices at the moment.
