Wow! That is a sick HT.... the stuff I and fellow techies/movie buffs dream about. Hope you enjoy every bit, and I hope someday I can afford something cool like that.

Like one of my audiophile friend told me (a reviewer for an audio magazine) when listening to music in that room: ''it's like the sound is coming from a black-hole of silence''. :)

Bass-trap in all the corners, and in the columns. Owans-Corning 703 (where needed, 1st reflection, etc) under Gilford of Maine, all over the room. Over 50000 staples. The stage is also full of sand and decoupled form the floor and walls. The room is 24 feet long and ceiling is 11 feet high. :)

There is bass-shakers in all the Lazy-Boy. Rockin!

Thee is a heatpump only for this room, so the air circulation is independant. There is also a dedicated electric panel coming from the street only for the HT. So no electric ''noise'' coming from the house. There is like 6 20A breakers in there. :)

My wife is sleeping just on the other side of the wall, and I'm watching a movie at 120 db! There is a brick wall separating the house from the HT. :)

Front view.



Back view. All my equipement is beyond the door to be sure the LEDs are not killing my ANSI CR. :)



With motorized 2.35:1 masking system.



And the ''casual'' HT. Pioneer Elite Kuro Pro-111FD 9G. Fully calibrated with i1 Pro.

amazing setup. where do you live .

LOL. The blue cable is an electrical cord extension for my drill. I was drilling something in the back and forgot to remove the extension before taking the picture.

Thank you all for the nice comments. It took 6 months to build that room. We had to use over 50000 staples in there to hang the GOM (Gilford of Main) one-by-one, 1 inch at a time! It was alot of work. But was well worth it.

And the ''worst'' part is that the sound and image quality is better then the ''look''. The wife didn't want to be in a ''tomb'' like she said... The ''wife-factor'' is strong in her. But if you take a look at her (my avatar) you will understand why I can't really say no to her.

The sound quality in there is sick. The room was fully analyzed and carefully planned to sound the best. 2 acousticians worked hard in there. Alot of audiophile and videophile came in that room, and they all came out with a wide grin stuck on there faces for weeks...

Listening to music in an acoustically treated room is a real experience. Everyone coming out of that room after a listening session is not the same.

I live far up north in Quebec. And 2 of my neighbors are police officers. Here's the view from my backyard. 2 sunsets. Those colors were for real. No Photoshopping. Canada is a wonderful country. I think we can all agree about that.

Oups. Edit. I forgot. Yes, I'm also gaming in there. It's awesome, on that 8 feet wide screen. Yesterday, I was playing Stalker Clear Sky with ArtsPavel Complete Mod (great work Pavel!) and jumped 2 feets high in my chair when a Bloodsucker attacked me from behind at night. With the surround sounds, it was SCARY!
