  1. Don't have one myself but will be interested in your thoughts when a swatch arrives. I am seriously considering Seymour AV/this material for my new screen. Have only heard good things about it.
  2. As per betty boop's set up I may add a VoG/Top speaker and a Centre height speaker to 4 Atmos heights. This is a hybrid set up for all 3 of the 3D codecs recommended by Trinnov. I will wire for that but start with 3 Atmos and see how I go. Diploes/bipoles etc are not recommended by Dolby these days for surrounds but can still perform well. The speakers I am considering are direct radiating with high dispersion characteristics (eg Elementi Audio Firefly or Alcons Audio CRMSC-SRHV120 and others less esoteric).
  3. I have a very similar room dimension (5.4m long x 4.2m wide) and will be redoing my speaker set up. I have decided on a 7.2.4 set up as a minimum but may still go 7.2.6. However for my bed channels I am going the standard 5.1 arrangement plus front wides. In my set up I will have pair of wide dispersion surrounds to cover the side/rear sound stage. As I have a wider gap between the LCRs and surrounds (than would exist between sides and rears in n a traditional 7.1 set up) then front wides will fill that gap and is more important than extra speakers in the rear sound s
  4. Further information: Screen material is unmarked/in excellent condition and provides a lovely picture when in use. The frame has some marks on it where the velvet coating has been marred. The photos highlight these marks more than what is noticeable by the naked eye. These marks are not are visible when the screen is in use and have no impact on the picture quality. This screen was purchased from the original manufacturer and is not a recent/current version which I understand may be of a lower quality. Screen can be dismantled for shipping but would suggest it is better to pick up l
  5. puunda - I would have thought that a matte paint would make the imperfections even more visible?
  6. Good suggestions ronfishes. I will go for a lighter ceiling colour, either going up the colour chart as you noted or trying a half strength of the wall colour. What finish are you recommending/using?
  7. Sound's like the room will be awesome steffanth. Dulux Domino is a very dark grey and has been used by some to great effect in HTs and I may be inclined to use it on my projector wall (I can't go matt black - no WAF).
  8. New Lotus. https://www.carscoops.com/2021/07/new-lotus-emira-with-amg-a35-and-toyota-v6-engines-is-brands-last-ice-car/ Price will now mean it's pitched clearly against the Cayman and perceived quality has taken a big step up but what is very disappointing is it's base weight of 1405kg - Colin Chapman would not approve. I do like it's compact dimensions however.
  9. Very impressive - what height speakers do you have?
  10. Yep - as noted above only one speaker is in working condition. The other one is not repairable/reusable.
  11. Item: Mission 78DS Dipole surround speaker Price Range: Free Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Clean up time - one of pair but the other one is well and truly stuffed. Speaker is in very good condition and works! Maybe someone can use this otherwise it is going in the bin for rubbish collection next Thursday. Pick up only (Croydon North) as I don't want to worry about posting.
  12. I have 2 x JL Audio F113v1s so would need an external DSP. I will explore MSO closer to rebuild/build completion time.:)
  13. I only have a single 2 seat couch. Based on REW simulation it is indicating a nearly identical response across the width of the seat with the 2 rear SWs. A similar smooth response over that small area does also occur with the other options. If I add 5ms delay to the SWs I smooth the response further in the 100Hz to 160Hz range, eliminating the nulls the are appearing in this area. All this is hypothetical of course and real life measurement may be quite different. I can't actually measure anything in the room at the moment as it has been damaged in the recent Melbour
  14. Thx niterida. My take is I lose heaps of LF headroom using 4 subs and I can use EQ to tame peaks. If I move the seating position forward from the existing position I again start to lose LF headroom. I also have a very even response across the front row of seats at that 1.65m position (I will only have one couch). I have tried a lot of variations as per your suggestion and they all seem to lose a lot of LF headroom, reducing some peaks somewhat but then also introducing larger nulls so still come to the conclusion that the rear SW placements are working the
  15. I am a newbie to REW and started playing with the room simulator to assess possible subwoofer positions as I go about rebuilding my HT/multipurpose room. Everything I have read/seen indicates that 4 subwoofers in the corners of a room usually provides the best bass for listening. Yet using the REW seems to indicate that 2 subwoofers in the rear corners of my room provides the best result. Please note I can't actually physically locate front subwoofers in the front corners because of doors in these locations - so as another option I tried locating the front subwoofers i
  16. Engineering on the new Ferrari is very impressive - not sure if I am sold on the styling yet though and it seems it is better suited to some colours such as the red pictured. The McLaren Artura made a better first impressions on me but would like to see them together (noting the Artura is a model series below the 296GTB).

  18. Sorry - wrong phrasing - Dirac does attempt to correct a dip in a speaker's frequency response. I believe you should seek to limit that correction if it too large as that can overdrive the speaker. I personally seek to limit that correction to around 4db in the lower frequencies.
  19. I also use tape to mark my measurement points - probably not necessary as mentioned but I do like precision!
  20. Adjust target curve in low frequencies to ensure you are restricting the amount of gain Dirac is applying to any nulls (I keep any boost to 4db or less). Keep target curve line straight on the speaker when rolling off DIrac from below the crossover point to the subwoofer. There are a couple of good and brief videos on the Arcam YouTube website.
  21. Thinking of Software or Web Grey for the walls from this colour group https://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/find-and-explore-colors/paint-colors-by-family/SW7071-gray-screen
  22. I am very attracted to front wides based on reports about how they are very effective in improving the overall front sound stage and in the pans to sides/rears. However if I keep my current processor then I will not be using them. But as noted everything is a compromise and my curtains did a fantastic job of making my room a bat cave even during the day. They did come right down to the floor to stop all light from the windows/French doors.
