As we near the end of 2020,(what a year!), i guess I could look back pertaining to my HT project which is quite a rocky one.
2019 - Flashback
Set up two HT systems in my living room and small study den. All Starke Brio speakers, subs, Gallos ceilings with Onkyo and Denon 4500.
2020 - Master Bedroom conversion to ded HT room. Decomn study den into bedroom.
Repaint/Remodel and move study Starke Brio 5.1 and subs into Ded HT. XTZ for ceilings and Rear surrounds making it 7.2.4. Denon 8500 AVC
Ceilings infested with mites/flies. Delay as repaint and sealant applied.
Not happy with Optoma projector. Trade in for JVC Nx5.
Newly purchased sofa discover to have termites. Affect my other furniture too. Got full refund but new sofa take ages to deliver due to COVID.
Some issues with Starke centre. As it is behind a AT screen and a different vendor handling my install, decided to replace the LRC with a brand they carries, i.e.Legacy Audio Studio HD and Silverscreen HD. 2 months delivery.
SW12 subs hit some issue. Decided to replace it with XTZ 12.17. One month delivery.
Rear surround too near sofa. Moved it all the way back, meaning partly block my MBR toilet. Wife has no concerns. Great
One Studio HD hit issue. Got a T Loan from vendor while waiting for replacement.
So with all the issues faced, all at different times, I finally got a final stable setup in Nov that i really like. With every issue, the vendor needs to come and retuned the setup. Grateful to them.
- Room treatment
- Replaced Studio HD with Classic HD/Power Amp
- maybe get a pre processor.
Hopefully it will be smoother
