amazing job! which speakers, amp, projector are you using?
A very impressive setup, my only critique would be to get thicker curtains.
Aha nice!
Very large room!
I finally can see you in there Smile

Couple of questions/suggestions

-Can you add your complete setup please in your first post? (audio/video/nas etc etc, really complete)
-Curious what you know use for mediaplayer in there (i think Q5, as i do)
-Do you game in there?
-Never thought about going unraid route instead of all those synology's?
- Those statues on the shelves, its nice, but you really should conside statues from hot toys Smile those are extremely beautiful (but also expensive lol, i just started that too, but its so much nicer)
@sh33p, thanks much! Updated post above with equipment list.

@k4sh1n, thicker curtains are on my list, along with some kind of a simple masking system for 2.35:1 or wider scope movies.

@Skank, thanks... HiMedia Q5 is my go-to media player, but I also use Pi2 and Shield TV fairly often. I don't game much as I don't have enough time for movies as it is. I did have a XBOX One connected there, and games looked/sounded great, but my kids hogged the room, so it got booted to a secondary room. I've considered unRAID, but honesty wasn't confident I'd be able to set up all the hardware & software at the time (about 3 years ago), so went Synology instead as it's so easy to use.
I see..
You should also consider accoustic room treatments like i did
Bass traps and stuff
A curtain already does do much
Especially on your corners and roof... and your walls (first reflection points)
Great job man hd. Question what you think about ceiling being black
Considering it and also front (screen) wall. Don't know how big an impact this would have?
yeah black helps a lot for your contrast Wink , the darker the better !
Wow, what an setup. Fine! Smile
Great job. I like the 80s nostalgia lookBig Grin
That is a nice looking room, well done.

Bill
Thank you ... added & re-did most of the photos above.
Nice job. Did you consider bass shakers? Highly recommend.
My audio knowledge isn't on par with the video side of things. You mean replace my sub w/something like those big SVS cylinder subs?
