    New home cinema

    Hi gang.
    Just built an extension with a 9x5 mtr multi use room with the intention for proper home cinema.
    Got a 106" Optoma screen (electric roll up ) Epsom HD 3 D TW6000 projector.
    Audio is Yamaha rxv671 and monitor lcr265 in ceiling speakers with a velodyne sub.
    Set it up over the last few days - it rocks.
    Gaming and blu ray is the main use but have a free view box hooked up for occasional tv use.
    Got an iPad2 running the Re software for universal remote/ automation.
    Sonos hooked up also.
    Really happy with it.
    Off to play some Battlefield 3 with actual size characters.
    Superb.

    Looks really smart! How's the sound from the ceiling speakers? Do you still get good mid-range response as there are no cabinates??

    Seems a bit of a waste building a dedicated room and using ceiling speakers?

    Soundstage must be pretty awful.

    I'd love to be able to install a screen in my room but the dimensions just don't allow (very low pitched roof cottage) but a Velodyn is next on my home cinema list for sure.

    Nice set-up by the way!
