I am looking at building a new home and I am looking at building a dedicated home theatre room (5mx6m).I have a technical background but I don't know as much as I would like to know about designing a good home theatre, so I would like some help from others that are really switched on to this sort of stuff.
I am currently using a Yamaha AVR that is about 7 years old. With Jamo bookshelf speakers and a Yamaha Sub. I'm not going to go and get all the details on these as its not that important.
So far the only thing that I am swayed towards are the Paradigm Studio 100's and matching Center. Looking at Monitor series 7 surround 3 bi-directional and was possibly looking at some fill in speakers at the front, (depending on what people have to say on that). I was pretty impressed with this mobs setup that I checked just before Xmas http://www.bigpictur...wood-pack-3-3d/.
As far as all the other stuff, I don't know enough about what is on the market to even follow a particular path. I like quality equipment without being ridiculous. I have always approached selection of my AV equipment that if my eyes or ears can't pick the difference by spending more money then I don't.
One of the AVR's I have been looking at is the AVENTAGE series. I think this has the adroid app to control the amp which is a nice feature. I want Internet radio. I like the feature of 2 HDMI outs. Not sure if I will use it but as I am building it may be handy for a setup in the Alfreso area.
I have know idea on projectors. The 4K video has been floated passed me but from what I have been reading it appears that there will still be some time until this is fully supported.
I will leave it at that for now but I will also want to discuss with you guys about room isolation and different ideas on running my cables as it will probably be in the bottom storey of a two storey house.
Also thinking about Ethernet cabling through the house as well as possibly some home automation, but the main thing at this stage is the design of the theatre room
