New Media Room for Klaus

11218629_10153716045041873_6022089925778912244_nIt’s been a long time coming, but my new media room is nearly complete – and at least partially functional. As such, I plan to resume my regular movie reviews starting this weekend. While initially I was hoping to install a projector and a 100″ screen, room limitations (mainly ceiling height) curtailed my plans. Though not quite what I had originally envisioned, I’m very happy with my 12′ X 22′ dedicated movie room fitted with an acoustic-tiled  ceiling, dimming wall lighting, a 65″ monitor, theatre seating, and soon-to-be-purchased 5.1 surround audio system (Klaus Ming November 2015).

        Been a busy summer / fall with the sale of our old house and the renovations in our new one. hoping to finish things up by December and enjoy the holidays in the media room 🙂

    Cool. The question is whether this setup will make everything look better (suddenly, all reviews are thumbs-up!), or will it reveal even more clearly the weaknesses in some of the movies? 🙂

      Heh, heh, yeah, I’ve already noticed the difference – at least in the poor quality of some of my favourite DVDs. It reminds me when we got our first colour television in 1966. At that time, we essentially would only watch shows with the little “C” symbol in TV Guide 🙂

    Awesome! I always dreamed of making me a room like that.

    Amazing – I wish I had the space for something like this. The thing I miss most is 5.1 – think it does more to drag you into a film than anything else. Would rather have that than HD or 4K any day.

      I agree, good sound is at least half of the fun. Plus, a good sound system should last for years. Edit – I have since added a new receiver and speakers. getting fun now!
