    That has to be the most room integrated CLX setup I've seen.

    Fantastic job. Very, very tidy indeed.

    WRT room treatments I have to agree with the somewhat negative visual aspects. No setup is perfect so I wouldn't worry too much. Some concession has to be made for aesthetics in a room like that.

    Simply excellent.

    Great system. I bet it'll by like listening to a giant pair of headphones. Regarding projectors - I've got a Panasonic projecting on to a 110 inch cinema scope screen. I've never found the picture to be too dim. Although I do have some light control in my listening room.

    Having heard the exact same set up with CLX and twin Depth subs in a LARGE room like yours , I feel your shorting your self by having them that close to the rear walls.. get them out 7 to 8 feet with a bit of toe and let the depths stay and the stage will be much more detailed.. images will be more precise.. The twin depth CLX set up I listen to regularly is powered by twin Krell EVO mono blocks .. CLX LOVE POWER and current

    Very nice set up .. JUST MY OPINION based on no scientific basis but my own ears..

    Update on the system: Now using a Celerity HDM-fiber-HDMI extender. Works perfectly.

    Wise choice I've got a flat LG OLED from the previous generation. Massively happy with it.

    I'd like to be able to give that a try, but there's an Unfortunate Wall behind the couch that limits rearward movement.

    Someday I want to yank that wall out of there and replace it with a horizontal span. Someday.

    Upgraded the player to Oppo 205. Sounds amazing, and 4K is breathtaking.

    Also hooked up a Roku Premiere for grins, only to discover that it's useless without shelling out for subscriptions--lots of them--so it's probably going to go away.
