After moving in to my new house January 2016, with all of my cinema equipment sold up apart from my premiere cinema seats and jamo d6 speakers, I'm finally getting around to building a new one! Due to the layout of my new house and no "spare" rooms big enough, this time it will involve a complete new outbuilding, which gives me the opportunity to get it done how I want it! Not having to worry about speakers in the wrong location, odd shaped rooms or even windows that need blacking out. This one is going to be made with home cinema usage in mind only!! Planning has gone in for a 3.6m x 4.8m building (I couldn't really go any bigger without losing too much garden). Attached are images of the garden just as the digging for the base has started, along with the base down and planning application drawings. The drawing show windows in the building, but these will be false, just to give a better aesthetic view of the house. It will be built with OSB board and I will be using roof shingles and cladding it in a grey green MarleyEternit weatherboard, meaning it should need no maintenance when built. Still deciding on what insulation I will be using, but likely to be celotex, I believe it is also good for sound proofing? The porch area will house all of my electronics, keeping everything nicely hidden. I will be making a DIY acoustic transparent screen, likely to be 2.7m wide with adjustable masking, the remaining wall will be covered in Devore velvet, giving the impression of a floating screen. The rest of the room will be painted in a charcoal black, with dark grey thick pile carpets, no light will be allowed in so it should be plenty dark enough!! Heating wise I am going to go down the air conditioning route, just deciding whether to go ceiling or wall mounted. In terms of goodies, I will be using a 7.2.4 speaker setup. I've already got the jamo's for the base layer, not decided on the atoms speakers as yet, advice welcome!! I am likely to go with the denon x4300 as receiver with a Iota 7 channel power amp which I have already ordered. The 2 subwoofers will be bk monoliths (picking the first one up this evening), I shouldn't be lacking in base!! The projector is a toss up between the epson x9300 or jvc x5000 although I'm currently leaning towards the epson route. I will likely end up with the oppo UHD player, PS4 pro and Xbox one. Just need the council to hurry up and give me a yes on the planning permission, getting a little impatient now!! Will keep you all updated!
