RE: New home cinema plans

Yamaha has already announced its midrange receivers with HDMI 2.0, so Aventage with HDMI 2.0 is just round the corner.

With the addition of the 103D, I don't think they'll change now until 4K is finalised and in place.

Good point, forgot about 103D!

No you didn't, you just want to buy the Lumagen  :grin:

 About the HDMI 2.0 receivers - My Loft is almost ready to receive equipment and now I'm thinking I should hold off and not order the Marantz 8801!

Lumagen is way out of my budget! Biggrin

I think I'll settle for 103. 

Which projector are you going for?

RE: New home cinema plans

Hi BB,

I think the decision to mount the TV above the fireplace is the the right one. I have been looking into doing something similar and found that the mantel at the top of the fireplace tends to prevent the fire from heating the TV up, the ones I looked at were either limestone or marble surrounds. Obviously a low-slung fireplace would be the best option allowing you to mount the TV much lower.

Personally I don't think the TV has to be at eye level if you're sat far away enough to not crane your neck looking up at the screen.

The only problem with an electric fire is that it gives off less heat. With the size of your living room you might be better off getting gas if possible (either should be fine with a TV above it though).

BB, looks like the top end new Aventage receivers support Dolby atmos - time to rethink that speaker set up again??  :grin:
