Ahhh That makes sense. It really looks cool, please share what enhancements / settings you have made as well; it will help me (And I'm sure other enthusiasts) considerably!

I will also share my updates / changes / enhancements as well.

Thanks

[Show spoiler]A lot of the digital versions of albums have dynamic compression, excessive noise reduction, weird EQ, etc. applied to them. And some mixes (like mono mixes) are often only available on vinyl. It was only a few years ago that the Beatles mono mixes were released on CD, for example. For Indian film music especially, the original vinyl is usually the way to go, if the condition is good, since the CDs are of questionable quality and sometimes edited.

I enjoy browsing for records in stores and online and doing the research to find out which pressings are good. I like having a physical artifact of a bygone era, in addition to the sound quality benefits. I don't buy everything on vinyl, though. Most newer music is recorded digitally, and if the CD sounds about the same as the record I'll get the CD.
My Apologies, i didnt see this. The ion TT plays 78's. The TEAC only plays LP (33 1/3) & EP (45).

I'll post pics once I've got it more set up but I am finally upgrading from stereo to a surround setup.

I've got the following:

Receiver - Denon 540BT (Basic receiver, goes up to 5.2, no wi-fi or beer opener included )
Front speakers - Dali Zensor 3 I have never heard of this brand before but the speakers (bookshelf, I don't have the space for towers / floorstanders) sounded good to me, especially when paired with a subwoofer, and they were reasonably priced.
Subwoofer - Paradigm PDR80 Again, a no frills SW. I'm a little confused as to what cut-off I should put for the sub (currently at 80Hz, 50% vol). I assume my speakers are full-range so should I reduce it further or is there a trial and error involved in this?

I'll be using my existing Mordaunt-Short Avant 902i bookshelfs for rears. Am negotiating to get a good pair of wall-mounts for them since they weigh 5kg and I think I'll need the ability to tilt and swerve the speakers to get an optimal rear soundstage.

Pics later.

Congratulations on the upgrade Suresh! Cannot wait to see pics of the gear. I have listened to the Dali range and they are quite well built (all round) great speakers.

Excellent AVR, be sure to calibrate Audyssey, makes for excellent music listening.

As promised here are the pics of the new surround sound setup (My previous rig was an analog stereo setup with Norge 2060 series Amp + Mordaunt-Short Avant 902i Bookshelf Speakers for Fronts). It's definitely not an elegantly placed setup but it's the best my lazy self can do.

The new gear - Denon AVR-X540BT 5.2 Receiver, Dali Zensor 3 Bookshelf Speakers (for Fronts), Paradigm PDR80 Subwoofer




Rigging for the rear speaker brackets. AM-40 Side Clamping Bookshelf Speaker Wall Mount, with a rated loading capacity of 20kg each, more than enough to hold my 5kg Mordaunt-Short speakers (now serving as rears).




Setting up the rears. The brackets allow for a swivel of 180 degrees and tilt of 7 degrees. That's my friendly neighborhood handyman Mr. Naveen putting in the final screws.




Tada! Here's the front side (with a great 5.1 surround test music blu-ray).




And here's the rears. A little tricky because they're in a sort of alcove but with a little fine-tuning I think they should work out good.




Subwoofer kicks into action! Currently set at 80Hz 50% volume, unless someone thinks I should go for a lower frequency setting.

^Congrats on the new Setup Ravenus.

As for your doubts on Frequency, its simple and very much in direct relation to the starting point of your speaker frequency response. Suppose your Speakers can deliver 60hz to 20K hz, then 80hz make sense for Subwoofer. the overlapping 20hz shd be there to cover the misses if any. If u set it at exactly at 60Hz, something may get missed out.

Essentially whats happening is for the entire frequency output range of any given source at play, 0hz to 80Hz is output by Subwoofer and 60hz to 20k hz is output by speakers. 60hz to 80hz is being output by both Speakers and Sub and that is fine.that much overlap should exists. Not to mention the setting in your AVR should be done for the same correctly. AVR should be sending upto 80Hz to Sub.

The sub volume is only a preference if you want real earthquake in earthquake scenes or not test it with 2012 movie when the first earthquake begins with the dialogue "the worst is now over"

The minimum frequency for both fronts and rears is between 50-55Hz, so I guess this should be okay. Have to check AVR setting. Anyway I played The Incredibles last night and the experience was, well, incredible

Cool then. However I must say the very nature of the home theatre hobby is that ur definition of 'an incredible experience' will evolve overtime as only after some 50+ movies and constant experiment with settings u ll realize what was incorrect or what suits u best or what u were missing initially from the most ideal set up that should have been the one from day 1

Anyway have a rocking time at movies

It took me over 6 months to complete this project. From designing to sound proofing, building stage, wiring. It was a lot but i enjoyed it. I'm very passionate about this stuff.

Thanks. The room is little too big, 29', because of that the back speakers are little too far. I couldnt do much about those unless i hung them from the ceiling.

Thanks Anurag. I suppose if you love doing something, it just turns out good. At the old house, i had to work with whatever room i had available. This time around, its custom home so i told my builder no bulk heads in the way. Anyways, for 1:85 or 16:9, this projector has motorized zoom focus and lens memory. I had to set it up initially then i just press a button on remote for each aspect ratio. You are right, i do get black bars but during movie watching i dont really notice them unless I'm looking for them. Blacks on the projector are not great but they are respectable for this price and features it comes with. Front of the room and half of the carpet being black helps. Havent thought about curtains.

Thanks Bro.
Yes, Epson projector sure is a beast
definitely not one man job hanging it

I'm a fan of DLP but got tired of waiting for LED DLP.

Sure, i'll add more pics to the HT album.

If anyone of you guys in Toronto or Hamilton area and want to see it in person, you are more than welcome to stop by
