I believe I would have ended up in the JVC yes. I've wanted a new projector for a number of years now and the JVC was always on the wish list. I really really don't have a whole lot of use for 3D so I'm afraid I'm not very subjective when it comes to answering the question.

We have only tried to watch one 3D movie from beginning to end and that was Spiderman, we ended up switching back to 2D half way through as I was more annoyed with the whole experience than anything else, having to wear the glasses and not getting any benefit. Nothing at all to do with the quality of the 3D my projector can do, I just can't 'see' 3D, it is rather frustrating.

I have tons of classic movie trailers on 35mm film that will never show up on a BD , old concession stand adverts, and many technicolor features (B movies) I suspect won't to be transferred to a disk. There are also a few 3D polarized titles that won't make it to BD. 35mm is not for everyone. You've got to have a passion for it!!
If anyone decides to get into the film business I can be a lot of help pointing them in the right direction. There is a warehouse full of used equipment here in Atlanta that's gonna wind up in the scrap yard sometime next year.
Hi Movie Man Don,

I tried sending you a PM but I was unable to do so, so I figured I'd write you here. Could you give me some info about 35mm projection and/or prints? I would be interested in learning more and possibly purchasing some equipment.

Please send me a PM.

Thanks!

Chris

New addition to the Home Theatre today!

Spent the day in Toronto to visiting my sister and some friends with my girls, made a couple of stops.

First stop after lunch was at http://audiooasis.com/ to pick up a White Pro-Ject Debut Carbon. After some dinner I went to http://sonicboommusic.com/ to buy some new LP's.

Playing a little Pearl Jam now and loving it. I remember when Vitalogy was first released. I picked up my copy at a then relatively new record shop called HMV in Oakville. I had both the LP and CD in my hand at the time and put the LP back on the shelf. Now almost 20 years later I pick up the LP and it is like listening to it again for the first time. It always was my favourite PJ record and Nothingman is still my favourite PJ song.

A good collection of LP's is nice. My friend matt has a ton of old vintage vinyl.
A lot of old analog stuff sounds way better than digital at times.

Well... shortly after getting my Turn Table my processor flaked out on me. I took it across the boarder for repair on March 1st and just picked it up today! Talk about major withdrawals but thankfully in time for Django.

While it was out for repair I did get a chance to build a home for my Turn Table. It isn't fully finished yet as I've got some painting and finishing work to do but is functional.





I had to blow the back out of one of my cupboards as they are not very deep at all, not much deeper than the short side of a blu-ray case.

I did some reading online about what makes a good shelf for a TT and read about these sand boxes people make and didn't want to get into that mess so I read about people suggesting granite slabs and I didn't want to get into that expense so finally I read the suggestion of a wooden chopping block. This was something I could get into.

I needed to put the thing on rails so I imagine I've compromised the benifits of using the chopping block but what can you do. After rigging up some supports for the rails I'm just about through.

Next addition to the theatre... acoustical treatments... one day.

Tape on the walls can't be a good sign for my wallet...





I'm getting really close to pulling the trigger on some acoustic treatments. ATSAcoustic's all around is the current plan.

For the ceiling:
(2) 24x48x2 - Black Microsuede
(1) 24x36x2 - Black Microsuede

For the Left wall:
(2) 24x48x2 - Chocolate Microsuede
(1) 24x36x2 - Chocolate Microsuede

For the right wall:
(3) 24x48x2 - Chocolate Microsuede

For behind the screen:
(3) 24x48x4 - Black Bass Trap Full Range

The paint on the walls is an eggshell finish from Benjamin Moore called Black Bean Soup. The ceiling is flat black pre-mixed by Benjamin Moore and may be a little more tricky to find, so it isn't a black they mix in the store, it comes from the factory black a fantastic paint to work with. Being a flat finish though it marks very easily and is really best for ceilings.

I received my ATS Acoustic Panel's today. I was really quite impressed with the service I received. We emailed back and forth a number of times while I tried to figure out what I needed. In the end they recommended a little less than I had originally planned on which was nice, this also helped me come in under budget so it was a win-win.

I've only hung 3 of the 12 panels so far, they are pretty straight forward to hang but I'm tired after a long day at work and I don't want to rush the installation.

I've got the 3 up behind my screen and I have the rest to tackle on the weekend perhaps. In the meantime I've got all the panels out of the their boxes and bags and just leaning up against the wall and I can already hear a marked improvement.

I flipped on Avatar and Avengers quickly and the dialog is sounding much clearer and the surround effects much more detailed. I am really excited to get these panels up and do some calibrations. I haven't quite decided on how to hang the ones on my ceiling so I imagine those will the last to go up.

More posts to come!

Well... I've had the treatments up for a while now, including the ones on the ceiling and I'm really happy with them. I ran the calibration on the Integra and I'm just sitting back enjoying the movies. I little decor came in the mail today and I've got that setup on the record stand... I like it there, just need to decide if I'm keeping the backdrop for it or not, I'm all ears on whether you think it should stay or go.

Thanks for the positive feedback! Always nice to read kind words.

I've been racking my brain on what to do next to the theatre and I'll be honest, I'm running out of ideas.

The next big project at home is the kitchen remodel... I think I'm going to start using the extra zones on my processor and getting some music up into the new kitchen.
