It's all starting to come

It's all starting to come together very nicely.

it all look's very smart but....

I'm not sure about the red colour on the front cabinets, I think it should be darker to match the curtains at the back plus have you thought about painting the back of the door.

It's the lighting effect. The cabinet doors match the curtains. I'm leaving the door as it is. I love wood, and walnut is amongst my favourite. Smile

sorry I'm looking at pics on my tablet

Just one more question and I'll leave you alone to enjoy your new cinema, have you tried your projector out yet, if so with walls of that light colour how are the reflections on the side walls, I only ask because when I was looking for one all the demos were in rooms painted with a dark colour, so when I installed my own projector I painted my walls in a dark red.

Once again hope this new room gives you years of pleasure.

Very very difficult, as we watch the projector in the dark. The camera will struggle.

That's why I went for a grey screen suitable for ambient light. Contrast is enhanced, and I can't see the picture getting any better with a different wall paint. 

I demoed the screen here. Look at the wall colour.

Excellent setup!!

Excellent setup!!

How do you find SR7009 vs PM6005  for music? It is interesting comparison, highest Marantz AVR model vs almost lowers model of stereo amp... does 6005 sound better?

Thx!

The PM6005 is only to amplify

Thanks! The PM6005 is only to amplify the rear Atmos ceiling speakers for 7.1.4 so haven't done a direct comparison. Although comparing the front Atmos and rear Atmos during setup, I needed to crank the volume up higher on the PM6005 to match the SR7009 volume.
