Augh! I missed this! Sorry, Dean.

Yes! I'd love to drop by and take a look at your set up. I think I'm going to develop a serious case of screen envy! Ha ha, go ahead and ruin my TV for me.

Also, I'd love to listen to your M80s. Let me know when you get everything all set to go. I'm just up the road from you.


Turn about is fair play as I totally missed your post too. Iíll PM you my info and we can make arrangements. If youíre just interested in functionality Iíve got all the basics in place. AsceticsÖwell not so much. Also I still have some tuning to do like get the curtains, new carpet, wall mount the QS8s, flocking for the ceiling and maybe the M80s masking if needed. Iím hoping to get everything dialed in in a couple more weeks but Iím already pretty impressed.

Cheers,
Dean

Well one of my biggest hassles is now taken care of by the Onkyo 3007. Because itís 9.2 (.2 here) I can hook up the Buttkicker separate from the EP500. So now I can change the ďvolumeĒ of the Buttkicker with the remote w/o effecting the sub. So no more getting up and walking over to the amp to change the Buttkickerís level. Probably a feature that wouldnít mean much to most people but it makes things much easier for me.

Good catch. I think it took me a couple months to change my location to Avondale from Phoenix.

Duh, I am so one track minded, I didn't figure for a second you have the projector on a shelf, I figured it must be on the ceiling.

In other news, my carpet was delayed another few days so I said screw it and fired up the Braveheart Blu-Ray... My DVE disc is still in the mail, and I have done no audio tinkering really at all other than setting speaker distance, but it was utterly fantastic. These Axioms are freaking awesome. I am glad I upgraded to the SVS sub as well, many scenes where you can feel bass but not hear anything... Could never get that with my old smaller Velodyne.

Let me know how the DVE disk works out. Iíve been so floored by this picture/sound I havenít done any real tweaking but eventually itís going to get the best of me and Iím going to want to know if Iím getting the most out of my setup.

I prefer the shelf mount. Much easier to set up. It gives me the maximum throw distance for the sharpest image and best contrast.

As of Monday Iíve had the Panasonic AE4000 for one week now and managed to only put 63 hours on it. Amazingly I had enough willpower to not even turn it on Monday since I was just using the computer. So far Itís done an amazing job with everything Iíve thrown at it. Iíve stayed in eco-mode as it seems plenty bright enough for TV, movies, gaming and computer use. The only issue Iíve found so far is that none of my three windows computers will set display properly in 1920x1080 if boot up directly to the AE4000. If first or simultaneously booted up while connected to my Samsung DLP the resolution is set properly.

A few other observations:

In eco-mode the fan is ultra quite. I have to stand with my ear right next to the projector to hear it. In normal mode I have to be within about 2 feet but in high altitude mode I can hear it from my seat about 5 feet away.

Watched some football and didnít see any real problems with motion blur. The only thing I noticed was the when thrown long the football had a trail about 1/2 a ball length behind it. But I really had to pay attention to notice.

I have an LCD TV - most of the motion blur and/or pixelization that I see seems to be related to the signal and/or the quality of the equipment used to broadcast the event. For example, when I watch 'Big Ticket' events like the World Series, there is no blur or pixelization at all. However, when I watch some of the broadcasts of say, 'lesser ticket' college games, there is a ton of blur and/or pixelization. Not sure what the cause is?

That's very interesting insight, Rob. But, what about Hockey?

Seriously, I don't yet have a configuration suitable for FP, but certainly appreciate learning from those of you that are enjoying that journey.

That is very interesting. Iíll have to check out some more sports broadcasts and see if I notice the same thing. BTW Iíve never seen any pixilation yet on any source with this AE4000.
