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.

I’ve spent the lock down (so far!) designing and building the latest incarnation of my line level Hafler decoder. This one has the additional benefits of a rear channel volume control, adjustable delay time and a funky dynamic front panel LED display of the “width” of the recovered surround signal. It works very well with stereo classical recordings.

Beautiful looking project inside & out! And I bet it sounds as good as it looks. Although I'm a bit surprised you didn't do it with valves haha etc.

Some questions....
I see the power supply is on the left near the front of the case & your DIY decoder is next to it on the right. What is the component marked Lindy? And what are the 2 modules on the left towards the rear?

If it is a quad decoder why does it appear there are 6 outputs? And what exact decode coefficients did you use?

What is the switch for on the back?

Lastly tell me more how the separation display works. Cool!

Edit: Oh I see the Lindy is your adjustable delay:

Thanks Sonik, I'm quite pleased how it turned out. Actually I did toy with the idea of a valve version (!) and may still do it one day - the thing that really puts me off is all the additional metalwork I'd have to do for mounting valve bases etc.
The Lindy box is a high quality digital delay module and offers preset delays from 0 to 250mS, here adjustable from the side of the case - it is normally intended for Lip Sync correction in audio-video systems. There are three PSUs - the low noise analogue one at the front provides the +/-12V rails to the decoder and there are two switch mode supplies (the black modules at the rear) that supply the 5V to the delay unit and 12V to the display. The display is essentially a differential VU meter - with a mono signal the display is blank, as the difference between the input channels increases the width of the bar increases from the centre.The switch on the back panel is the mains switch as I did't like the idea of taking mains the full length of the case and the front panel switch is actually just display on/off. The six outputs are stereo loop through, rear (L&R in phase) and rear (L&R out of phase).
