That is one sweeeeet setup! Where did you get your screen? What is the name of the projector?


Thanks for the compliments. First page has the info on equipment, but I will rewrite the screen and projector... just for you \:\) :
Screen is Carada Criterion 102" in brilliant white. Projector is the Panasonic PT-AE900U, which is rated at 720p but accepts 1080p/24.

Really nice! It looks really clean and it must be really great to watch movies in that room!

One comment, is there a reason why the surrounds are a bit in front of the listening position instead of being directly on the side or a bit behind (90-110°)?

It looks to me he is running dual side surrounds or a 7.1, there is another set of speakers in the very rear corners of the room.

Thanks again for the compliments.

Yes, the room has dual side surrounds. If you like at the side shots looking at the seats and focus attention to the far side, the side surrounds are just a few feet forward next to the ottomans; the rear surrounds can be seen all the way back in the corners. The surrounds are Michaura M55s, which were actually made by Axiom few years ago. They are similar to the M22s (slightly smaller tweeter and same dual midwoofers). I may replace them with the QS8s one day, but have been relatively happy with them so far.

The room has surprisingly good acoustic properties and is great for both watching movies and listening to music (when we have the time).

I think you might be achieving a similar sound to the QS's with the dual side surrounds, very enveloping.
