  4. Best Projector <$3000

    Haha she is quite amazing, I wasn't allowed to have it in the house so we compromised and built a room outside of the main house. For some super bizarre reason 3D just doesn't work for me, I only see blurry images as opposed to actually seeing what people have described to me what it should look like, so 3D is not needed at all! The colours on the HD50 there you calibrated were really nice and natural and the blacks were good too. I found the motion on this one very nice also. I noticed it did have some issues with
  5. Best Projector <$3000

    Thanks for the above great tip, the walls and ceiling are painted flat black
  6. Unfortunately the Sony hw40es I purchased from a member here is cactus (thanks again Mark for coming around to help). As such I need a projector... The wife has given me a $3,000 budget (shame I wasted $2,000 on the Sony, I would have been in 4k territory...). Mark directed me to Todds hifi and they have offered an Optima HD50 for $2800, which is a good price and quite a nice projector. However I see Rio is selling the BenQ W3000 for $2000 which is also a good price, I can't demo the w3000 locally unfortunately. Ill throw it to you guys, any other suggestions? Or opinions on the above? Projector will be in a completely light controlled and dedicated room approx 3.6m thrown onto a 120" scope screen. I will need some lens shift and also provision to run anamorphic lens (need vertical zoom).
  7. Speaker Wire for New Build

    I just used Selby speaker cable in my theatre and its great. I used their 10awg stuff, it is thicker than I needed but allows for any future upgrades.
  8. Just an update here... After running some tests on a white bed sheet I pulled the trigger and went with a 120" scope screen - an absolute huge thanks to Rich @oztheatre for being so accomodating and organising a frame for me. I couldn't get the sharpness 100% perfect but I think it is definently watchable. Mark sorry for the delay, I have just sent you a PM with my number, hopefully you might be able to help me squeeze out the extra sharpness, I was waiting for the carpet to get installed (coming this Thursday) before I was going to ask you around.
  9. My First Surround Sound Product

    My very first avr was a Sony STR-DE597 (way newer than yours!) I can't remember the 5.1 speakers but they were entry level stuff, wasn't a bad setup for my bedroom with a DVD player! Can't remember specific model upgrades after that there have been so many!
  10. Mark that would be amazing! I will shoot you a PM with my number and we can organise a time that suits you.
  11. So this was pretty loud ...

    Wow... that would have been amazing. For reference, how big is that screen??
  12. Best Whole Home WiFi Solutions

    I'm a little curious as to what you're not getting from your current WiFi network? Yeah sure the Pakedge is an absolutely amazing product but that also comes at a cost... I've used my Aruba 205 via PoE for 3 - 4 years without any problems, I get WiFi coverage over my whole 700sqm block, inside and out (and the next door neighbours for that matter) and regularly stream 4k content to the bedroom TV without buffering.
  13. I don't have a white bed sheet (I do, however only a fitted sheet which will be rubbish for this purpose!) but my Dad does so I've asked him to bring it over for me, thanks for the tip! Muruwai, I absolutely appreciate your offer and that would have been amazing, however I am in Brisbane
  14. Thanks Roachy! I am even more determined to get this to work if I can I finally have gotten to a point where I have been able to have a play in the room, I temporarily setup the projector and started to have a play and I am really struggling to get the image sharp to get a good basis to have a play with the lens. What material have you guys used as a temporary measure? Projecting on the wall is impossible to get any idea of what the picture really looks like (flat black paint).
  15. Network Cabinet Wiring ....

    Have you upgraded the ram in the Synology? You can upgrade it to a total of 16gb this might be able to help with that. This is certainly the cheapest option. Alternatively you could use a NUC to run the Roon server (accessing the drives on the Synology) and the Synology to run the plex and camera recording. This way you separate the CPU power across both devices. Easiest way to have a NUC in your rack is use a rack shelf (I have a 1RU one here I am not using you can have for the cost of postage), you'd have to run a HDMI cable to an available screen. You'll have plenty of room to do this now you only have one switch. With all that said and done if you wanted an all in one solution, you can absolutely build a quiet 2RU server (I think you may even be able to jamb a 3RU one in there) you'll just need to use the right components and build it yourself. You wouldn't be able to use an off the shelf server as these are dreadfully loud, but these days you can almost get away fanless for a quad core system. If you go down this path I'm more than happy to steer you in the right direction.
