  1. Sorry but for this large hard space, your budget would be for acoustic panels only. Or you could get some thick carpet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I'm guessing if one is to watch this TV in dark a room without windows + matte black wall, it would be the same as staring at the sun? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. The Hecto screen is on the floor to the left hahhaa I'm awaiting for my new cabinet to arrive to get the most accurate install height. My setup is just a very modest setup. Receiver is Marantz SR7009 + Power amps x2 are Marantz MM7055. I've gone the Atmos path with my setup. KEF Q900 fronts KEF Q200C centre (was too late to change the cabinet design, otherwise would've got the Q600C KEF Q100 x 6 for the surrounds Still deciding on the 4 x Atmos on the ceiling, gonna test out the dual cube Bose that are sitting in the garage.

  4. Offline for 2 weeks and almost missed out on the Hecto tips! Thank you Blackman! Just moved into a new place and planning to setup the screen like yours, off the wall with the mood light! Red box is outline of the screen and green box would be the frame to hit the studs. New cabinet coming soon to fit another power amp. Gonna be running 9.1.4 Btw, I've saved your image of your Hecto as a reference Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. As mentioned before I'm in the same boat. Should I replace the Hecto that's limited to 1080p (what triggered this is looking at my old 55" LG vs the Hecto is that 55" just looks better, maybe it's due to simply magnifying the image to 100") I just stumbled upon this, http://www.techbuy.com.au/p/393654/MONITORS_COMMERCIAL_LED_LCD/NEC/X981UHD.asp NEC X981UHD, from the spec sheet; this should blow the Hecto out of the water. What do you guys think? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Can this 98" 4K from Philips be home used? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I've been googling for further info after that launch at CES, couldn't find anything. Did Hisense mention if we could ditch the flimsy looking speakers that's part of the package? Shipping the screen from US would be the issue, then there's the import GST. With all the shipping + GST, I reckon pricing would be on par with the LG. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Please post up your first hand review once the new TV is in, keen to compare with the Hecto. Is it worth losing the 14" of real estate for 4K resolution. I would consider getting one too if it blows the hecto out of the water. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. That's amazing! That off wall mount with the back lighting .. master stroke! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I've been trying to find your setup post for the LG Hecto! I'll be moving house soon and would love to setup with 0,0 settings!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I just went from the WD TV Live, to Mac Mini. VLC on OS X doesn't support Atmos passthrough, DTS-HD is fine. So I would have to use the WD TV Live for Atmos. I'm yet to test out if the plex media player app would have Atmos passthrough. I'll be setting up the QNAP NAS when it arrives. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks for the tips. I guess would just save the hassle of drilling the ceiling then. Once the acoustic panels are done, I'll play around the calibration. You're spot on with the cross over, I did a cover one ear and place the other over the atoms module. Not much comes out of it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Interesting read. I'm new to the forum and my current setup is 7.1.4 in a room of 4x5m. 4 of those Onkyo atoms modules. The current install is in an open space living room, which is not very ideal. However the new house would be a windowless room that's the same size. TBH, perhaps it's my current rooms setup. At the showroom where I bought my Marantz SR7009 they had ceiling speakers and while listing to the sample DVD, the audio from the Atmos was very distinctive. Sampling Mad Max Atmos track was quite impressive too. At home watching Mad Max with the up firing speakers, yes I can hear some so called ambience; but it's not as good as the showroom. My question for you guys is, what if I ceiling mount those 4 up firing speakers and calibrate? Would that provide a more accurate sound over the "bounce"? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Hi everyone, New to the forum here. I've been using the LG Hecto for the past 3 years now, it still works perfectly. I've been tossing up the idea of going 4K, Sony's flagships are over my budget. 1. Hisense apparently bring out a short throw 4k, no idea on price yet 2. Benq w11000 is looking quite good on Bang for Buck. (I understand its not true 4k like the Sony) Question for everyone. Forum member Blackman I understand you also have the LG Hecto, hopefully you've done similar research or testing. I have a dedicated windowless theatre and the 100" screen fits perfect between my pair of KEFQ900. I remember reading somewhere regarding the Hecto screen that its got some sort of angled glass to direct the light towards the viewer, I can't seem to find it and wondering if that is true? If its just a normal screen, then it answers my question that I can use it with a 4k projector. Otherwise can I reverse mount the screen and have the 4k projector shoot down from the ceiling? Cheers, Ron
