    Yes, that is a very nice project. Well done!

    I bet it even makes bad movies a little more fun to sit through.

    If by bad movie you mean "chick flick" then yes, it certainly helps. Though my wifey is always telling me to turn it down......I told her it's called "dynamic range" and it would be a sin to use a compressor to make her happy.

    Hi UreiCollector,

    Could you do a YouTube of your system in operation? I'd love to hear/see the outcome.

    That is absolutely gorgeous. Well done. What an impressive project.

    My eyes are drawn to the racks - the so-called "outboard" gear - particularly the shiny faced pieces. Tell us what you got - particularly the upper two 1RU racks?

    It looks somewhat like "all Behringer all the time"...

    The Rack

    hey Bob!

    The two silver boxes at the top of the rack are Behringer Multicom compressors....I use them when watching movies with my wife (she can't handle the dynamic range, and I hate playing jockey with the volume control). When watching movies on my own they are set to bypass....and they are only in the audio path when watching DVD's or BluRay, CD goes straight from my CD/DVD/Super Audio player to the analog preamp.

    As for components, at the very top of the rack is a DVDO iSCAN HD+ Video Scalar, the compressors next, a Sony TA-P9000ES analog preamp, Sony TA-E9000ES processor, Sony DVP-S9000ES DVD/Super Audio Player, PlayStation 3 for BluRay, Outlaw ICBM for bass management (multichannel crossover), Behringer DCX2496 Ultradrive (used on the subwoofers ONLY for EQing, and high passing at 20hz), a Behringer DEQ2496 (used as an SPL meter only), and Hafler Amplifiers round out the bottom (DH500 for mains, DH220 for center, XL280 for surrounds {sits in the closet, no rack space}, and a Hafler GX2600 for the JBL 2242H subwoofers). The computer in the equipment room has CLIO on it for when I get the urge to tweak the system.

    Also, I get a kick out of this........

    Why do I spend so much time and effort on the theater?


    My shrink tells me it's my parents fault......

    Here is dad's system........i guess my shrink was right!

    (he is rear projecting, subwoofers are EV180B's with the exception of a pair of EVM18's, and the mains are Urei 813B's, as well as the JBL LSR 6332's)

    Looks like Dad could use a single Urei 811 for Christmas.

    The man has 4 of them (811C's)......

    I was a little surprised that he swapped it out for the 6332....especially considering he doesn't hear so well above 4kc. They do image better than the Urei's....and that may be why he went to it.

    The 6332's are amazing, I have to say.
