Hey Guys.... first post on these forms....and would like to share my home theater setup. I am new to the high end sound setup, but just recently did over my basement and put some money into my audio system and now want to learn and make sure I am getting the most out of my new equipment. So what I have/had is a Epson projector that I got over a year ago and love it ! It is 1080p and refresh rate is awesome and quality is amazing! Have it at about 160" on a wall which I painted using flat white paint and is ceiling mounted. Eventually I will upgrade to a 4k but will wait til 4k projectors come down. I just finished doing 2 months of renos in a basement by added a subfloor (Dricore styrafoam/playwood panels) and raising my drop cieling using a new product called ceiling max (only did one side of the cieling). Opened the wall I have my regular TV on to hide wires and add plugs. The tv I have is a thin 1080p led samsung TV which I have mounted like a picture frame. This will be my next upgrade, as I want to upgrade it to 4k except having a hard time finding another tv that thin without breaking the bank. So on to the audio... What I bought... Sony STRDN1080 165-Watt 7.2 Channel Atmos Network AV Receiver Polk Audio T600 Stand up speakers Polk Subwoofer PSW125 What I alreadyt had 5 Energy take Classic speakers giving me 7 speakers and 1 sub. Got everything connected and enjoying, have not tested Atmos yet but am excited to. Looking for suggestions on what I should use as my go-to media player.... I have a regular PS4 but running into a couple issues. Took me a bit to enable all speakers and only see an option for 5.1, however sound is coming from all speakers. All of my movies are 1080p version which are like 2-3gb .MKV on my NAS drive. My samsung smart tv's steam most of these movies but now I want to stream these to my projector with best audio I can have. It appears that the PS4 can not play all these files or well, in some cases can only read the video but not audio. I plan to upgrade to the pro eventually but doubt that will fix it as software would be same. If you have any recommended settings for ps4, even gaming let me know. Also should I stick with HDMI or go optical for ps4? If my ps4 cant give me the best audio for playing movies from my NAS, what should I get ? I have a mini windows PC.... would that be best with VLC player? FYI reason I download is because our internet is only 7mb download... so streaming isnt the best.... Netflix works good though but not many newer movies. I use my ps4 for netflix. Any help would be greatly apprecaited.... I will share pics of my setup soon. I know there are flaws IE couch to back wall but overall I think I did a pretty good job with this room. Thanks Everyone!!!!!
