  1. With short throw projectors, it’s very important to have a flat screen. An untensioned pull down screen with ripples will be out of focus/soft in certain areas.
  2. My Klipsch RP-250C center speaker is about 4” away from the wall. As it has a rear port, should I move it further away from the wall. If so, what would be a good distance?
  3. I use concrete blocks to raise my speakers off the floor. To make them look nice, I have attached grey thin exhibition carpet to the sides with self-adhesive Velcro. They are heavy to reposition! I did try tilting my speakers but did not like the sound.
  4. Sorry for not replying sooner but I have a nasty eye infection. There are two reasons for my username. I am a fan of Chris Rea's song "On The Beach" I live in Fuerteventura, Canary Islands. I am lucky to live about a mile away from what is considered to be one of the best beaches in Europe: And there are plenty more like that:
  5. Thank you for your feedback. I have a Denon AVR-X3300W. Compared to a movie, when I watch a TV drama with a 5.1 soundtrack, I rarely have problems understanding the spoken word. In the music industry, most producers will review their work on various sized speakers and at different volume levels before they release it. I get the impression that when movie studios create a Blu Ray or DVD, most of them take care in encoding the video for playback on a TV, but just copy across the multi channel audio without consideration of how it will sound in the home.
  6. I like to listen to movies at about 65 - 70 db and quite often there are problems hearing the spoken word. If I turn up the volume to 80 db (which is too loud for my liking), the balance between voice, music and sound effects is much better. Are soundtracks being mixed at too high a level, which is fine in a large movie theater but not in a home environment?
  7. I'm from the UK and use HDMI Extenders over Ethernet cables. I use this one over a distance of 30' but it claims to go up to 90': https://www.amazon.co.uk/Neet-Extender-Cat5e-network-cable/dp/B002ECYEYA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1500223723&sr=8-2&keywords=hdmi+ethernet+neet You can also make up custom lengths with Ethernet cables. I assume similar devises are available in the US. Hope this helps
