🤩. Looking forward to this build. Absolutely love the look of the Dali speakers.
what’s size is your room, and the wall for the 280s?
I don’t see a sub listed, are you planning on getting one?
im guessing the biggest thing a lot of people overlook is trunking or having some ability to upgrade cables/hdmi cables down the line or for replacement.

This should be great to see and LCR s-280's I'm jealous!!
I do have a little bit of advice is as you know I have been doing some work with mine and if I'm being completely honest acoustic boards help alittle but they're not going to keep all the noise out unless you go all the way with the box in a box method?? Which would be rather pricey and room size damaging but go with what you got mate.
I look forward to watching this as Im just about to be able to settle down in mine and watch a movie with a beer (minus a proper sofa)😂 it will be well worth it when you're done 👍

That is some serious bit of equipment right there, those Dalis are incredible. Are you intending to treat your walls and ceiling for light reflection?

I know how you feel because I felt the same way once I built my speakers.
