I love the idea and "high end" is a relative term. Are you enjoying your system? If so it's high end !This thread was started as a request I put in asking for one. Thank you Mr Moderator. I'll start with my main system which I made recently ATMOs.. All my systems are modest and not high end but they work really well for both music and HT. This is my main system.

@Dave Upton - If you need a storage location for any of your gear during construction of the new home, I'm open to it. I wouldn't hold it any longer than agreed. Really...My room is perpetually cramped, so I'm very excited about building our new home where I'll have a bit more space.

Thiels were always impeccably finished. Real hardwood veneers, with the grain structure being mirror images. These are called Amberwood, which looks like Rosewood. They're also finished on all sides. The connections are on the bottom of the speaker.Ah, I love that pic because it includes your very comfy looking feet. Nothing like relaxing after a hard days work. Those Thiel's look awesome. I can see why you've held onto them for so long.
There are only a handful of companies who really do cabinetry "right" like Thiel did without breaking the bank. Legacy is one of them. I also love Aerial Acoustics and Salk Sound.Thiels were always impeccably finished. Real hardwood veneers, with the grain structure being mirror images.

You're really committed to including the feet. Gotta respect that.
The feet are kind of the point, aren't they?You're really committed to including the feet. Gotta respect that.
Beautiful room and beautiful speakers.
Beautiful system Murray!My Cinemascope home cinema was built as an extension to the rear of an 1865 Victorian Villa in Devonport, Auckland, New Zealand. I named it the “State” in remembrance to the art deco State theatre which once proudly stood at the entrance to the Village of Devonport . My cinema was built at the rear of the house and connected to the house by a breezeway. The construction is timber frame with exterior weather boards. Double sound GIB Board walls and ceiling are held away from the timber frame with resilient channel. Green Glue was used between the two layers of GIB on the walls and ceiling and everything is insulated with sound batts. Concrete floor construction overlaid with a floating timber floor. The raised stepped seating also floats over the timber floor and none of the timbers are anyway attached to the concrete slab. As I was a cinema projectionist for over 35+ years my HT is run exactly the way cinemas were in the past, with curtains coloured lights and old style presentation. I make up playlists in JRiver and the whole show runs through in order seamlessly, shorts, trailers, main feature ect etc...
The projector is housed in a cupboard above the rack in the small foyer at the rear of the cinema, the hot air is extracted to the outside.
I don’t ever use the two Oppos in the rack these days as all my films (2600) are now stored on a Nas with 105TB storage.
The whole show is operated from an ipad using iveiwer4.
My player is JRiver and I use madvr with the 1080ti card.
I upscale everything through madvr to 4K feeding this to my 4K JVC NX9.
I run Atmos through my McIntosh gear with a total of 11 speakers and 4x18” subs. The rack image has the description of gear.
I have 12 seats over 3 rows of four, which are on risers.
There are two coves on the ceiling which house miniature downlights and RGB twinkling stars. The borders of the coves are coloured with RGB LED.
All the walls and ceiling are covered with Vertiface, black on the ceiling and burgundy on the walls.
Motorized Goelst curved track main curtain which turns at 90deg and hides away into side walls. RGB overhead and footlight LED miniature spots to colour curtain.
Curved Goelst track motorised black velvet masking with four stops for 4:3, 16:9, 1:85 and scope.
Curved 145” Stewart Micro Perf StudioTek 130 projection screen.
Projector JVC NX9 with Cineslide housing an Isco IIIL anamorphic lens.
Three dual 10" Power Sound Audio MTM-210 speakers behind the microperf screen. Curved 145” Stewart Micro Perf StudioTek 130 projection screen.
