Hi all, We bought our house back in March, and one of the key reasons for choosing the house was that it had a room that we thought it would be ideal for setting up as a home cinema. The previous owners, it turned out, had also had that idea and there is a bit of pre-wiring done (some good, some not so good), and even some draw cables installed when they had the house built so it was ready when they got round to it. They never did. Now we've done the sensible things (sofas, solar, battery, kitchen table and chairs, study and library etc) I'm allowed to start work on the fun stuff. So picture one is the layout of the room. I was able to purchase the Anthem MRX1120 that I wanted a few months back, and the original plan was to re-use the Q Acoustics speakers we already had for the "7" layer, and then add the Atmos speakers into the ceiling space. I am planning to go for a Sony VPL-VW760ES projector. Screen wise, it's partly dictated by viewing distances, but also those rather odd stubby walls that are at the projector end. A 100" screen would fit the on the walls perfectly it seems. A 110" screen would overhang a bit and look possibly a bit odd. The rooms was, er, an interesting colour. Eggplant. Very very eggplant. In the photo you can see some wall mounted speakers that we inherited - they aren't good, but at the moment they're being pressed into service as temporary front heights and rear heights and are ok for that. You'll also see a pull down projector screen that we had in storage from about 12 years ago of dubious quality, and we've got a positively ancient Toshiba TLP-X2000 projector of the same vintage that amazingly has survived sitting in storage unused for the last 6 or 7 years, that we're using from time to time so we can use the room a bit, and a more recent Sony Bravia for more normal film watching. The projector is surprisingly good for Laserdisc viewing, far better than pushing it into the modern TV. At the moment I'm working on the easy stuff, making good the holes in the wall, painting, better blackout layer of curtain behind the primary curtain, and drawing up the shopping list and ideas for how it'll look and work. Automation wise, it's mainly going to be controlled via my Logitech Harmony Elite with lighting via Philips Hue once I can replace the MR16 transformers for GU10 fittings and replace the wall scones with something a bit more to our taste.
