You've been a busy boy there Stuart!.....congratulations on a job very nicely done,and one which has me rather envious,as I couldnt see any possibility of the management here permitting anything like it!
Time to sit back and enjoy no doubt.....
Not only does it look good, it sounds fantastic!
Are those seats as comfy as they look ? I know they cost a packet - are they worth the money ?
Well it's alright I suppose....... wipes envious dribble of screen
Re the seats, it's a lot of money but you are getting what you pay for.
The way I figure it, every component in my home cinema is going to last me a long time. Perhaps with the exception of the DVD player which will probably be replaced by a HD DVD player in less than a couple of years time.
Everything is played at reference level.
Just watched House of Flying Daggers. Totally awesome.
Very nice room. Superb website too....
Very interesting. A cracking cinema room.
That is an awesome home cinema. I've just got my meagre set up to a point where I'm completely happy then I see this!
I'm looking and those m&k speakers and wondering what they would look like in my set up now..damn upgrade bug!
I'm very impressed by how much effort you've gone to in every aspect, most people would not have considered getting the sound calibrated proffesionally as well.
Great job, love everything about it tbh, I'm new to pj HC, seeing cinemas of this quality is quite inspiring. After looking over your site I decided to paint my HC the same colour (already have a dark blue carpet, so had to be blue, or change the carpet). What are the walls like when blacked out, any reflections etc?? not painted my one yet.
Once again, Fantastic job, well done
Thanks Coolit. There is, of course, an element of 'showing off' in publishing details of the home cinema, but it's done mainly to inspire and I'm glad it's served its purpose.
There is no reflection at all off the walls, ceiling or floor.
The reflection off the underside of the bulkead was noticable which is why I had that piece of wood put in place. There are no distractions from the picture.
The paint works well because it is matt. It does mark easily, though, and I would recommend keeping a spare tin handy to touch up the walls from time to time.
No one likes a show off .
Me jealous ,never
Looks like snoop dogs pimp pad!
been a long time coming stu, top job
I am hoping you may be able to help me,
I have a very simillar shaped garage conversion (although "only" using a barco 701 )
My screen is 145 cm wide and sits with the bottom approx 1 metre from the ground. The projector is on the floor, at present 2.7 metres from the screen (although this can be moved).
My problem is that the image is projecting on to the wall much lower than the screen, I need to raise the front of the projector by approx 20cm to fill the screen - obviosuly doing this means the image is about 75 cm wider at the top than the bottom and the Keystone adjustments can not "repair" it properly.
I notice from your pictures that the screen seems about the same height as mine and your projector appears to be flat on the ground - any tips on how you achieved this
Yes, employ Roland from B4 Projection to install it for you.
Worth every penny.
