That room looks incredible! I remember the "before" pic you posted of the damaged ceiling. Wow what a comeback. I esp like the acoustical treatments. I have never seen ceiling treatment like that. What is it called or who is the mfg'er?

I know most everyone has the more practical flat panel direct radiating video but I much prefer a projector like you. My screen is good quality DIY but fixed. Looks like yours is a roll down. May I ask what brand?
My screen is actually fixed frame acoustically transparent and also DIY using Seymour XD material.

The ceiling treatments are a mix of Auralex T’fusor and Geofusers all stuffed with Ultratouch denim insulation.

I prefer front projection also so I can use 3 identical speakers for LCR and not compromise with the center channel. Also I can have a 150” 2.35 screen and change aspect ration on the fly which is awesome!

I understand both the Audessy and the REW room corrections. What do you intend to gain by doing the REW after the Audessy. The reason I ask as I will be doing a designated audio/visual room in a few months after all this Virus is over, I hope.
always too check that the phase relationship at the crossover is correct and too set my house curve. Its good too see what Audyssey actually did as well. I’ll usually tweak all my channel levels as well.

Here is my system. The entertainment center (rack) is homebuilt from 80/20 aluminum extrusions and stained plywood.
From the top we have:
Dish satellite receiver.
Oppo UDP-203 Disc player.
Onkyo PR-SC5509 Processor.
BSS Blu-160 crossover / equalizer.
Monster HTS-2500 AC power controller.
Lexicon (Bryston) NT512 and NT225 Power amps.
The TV is a Sony 49 inch X900E.
On the left side of the rack I have a Sota Sapphire turntable. It's mostly hidden behind a piece of wood that's stained to match the CD storage bins.
The main speakers are my own homebuilt creations, 15" two way systems using JBL M2 components. Bi-amplified. The center speaker is a JBL SAM3HA and the surround speakers are JBL L20T3.
Everything else is CD storage area. This is the least amount of dog toy visible in any photo I have ever taken of my system.
