I don't possess the construction expertise, but I'll have a good hand in the install of the technical side.  I love to tweak, set, install, etc.....then tweak some more!

zero hiss

I use emotiva xpa-100's....I only do this because i NEED 2 external amps to complete the 7.x.4 atmos..and I would rather have external amps driving the front 3 than overheads...and with the x7200wa its VERY fllexible which internal drive which speakers..

otherwise Id be using the Avr for all channels

Hi Brian,
You'd mentioned at the beginning of this thread that your room is 10'10" x 16'5". I take it that the 16'5" is the length?

I see you also have a 130" diagonal 2.35 screen (corresponding to about 120" width). How far back is your MLP, and what's your viewing distance to screen width ratio?

viewing distance is about 11'...so a little less than 1:1...

Thx...good to know for perspective as I consider what screen size to do in the near future. With an AT screen in my 20'x15x9' (LxWxD) HT room, and a screen approximately 3' from the front, I'd be looking at a similar 11' to 12' viewing distance while leaving sufficient room behind me for the side/rear surround separation. So my guesstimate of 100" to 105" seems right at about a 1.2-1.3 screen width.

Oh no, not this discussion AGAIN! ;) 1.3:1 (or was it 1.4?) and not an inch closer rings a bell...Haha.
