The Negatron 2 HT

When we moved into our new house in Mexico... I sold 90% of my old dedicated HT room equipment, and started over again. In the new house I no longer have a dedicated room and now have a HT that is open to our dining room and kitchen. The actual HT floorspace is the same as our old HT, but since it also encompasses the dining room and kitchen...it is double the floorspace and over 4 times the cubic space. When we bought the house I knew my good old days dedicared room would be just a memory as there is no way I could ever get the new room to sound as good as the old setup. I could go back to having a 200" 2.40 screen again but since the room has a 30' high ceiling the layout for a projectoon screen would not provide a favorable look when it is not in use...so we went with a 86" screen this time. Since I am retired, it takes longer to build up the cash needed, and deleays everything. 4 years later this is what I have now.

Equipment list:
LG 86" tv
Yamaha CXA5100 AVP
3 Icepower 50asx2btl mono amps (1 for each compression driver)
3 AmpCamp monos (For serious listening...1 for each compression driver)

That is a big room it makes your 86 inch television look small! Very nice amps, a 30 foot high ceiling that's as high as some small boutique commercial cinemas. You could easily place the height channels higher up to get a better more immersive Atmos/DTS X effect.

I could, but it is a nightmare to install even at thae current height. I set them up per Auro3d specs, and angles. They sounded great last time I had them hooked up (I sold my smaller Klipsch surrojnds, and I am waiting to get my new MEHs made, before I run them...I want to have 5 base channels first).
