    The Ridge 4K ATMOS THX Ultra II Cinema

    Very nice ht mate. Very neat with some nice room treatments. I have to ask, why did you opt for such a small screen? And what was the reasoning behind putting the projector cables under the shelf opposed to above and out of sight? Would love to see some shots with the projector on.

    PSA sub amp blown?

    I would also buy PSA subs again. They're great. But i wouldnt buy one with the cheaper, lower quality bash amps. Do they still actually sell any woofers with bash amps installed?

    PSA sub amp blown?

    Good to know Christopher. Also, they no longer sell this subwoofer with the bash amp and only offer it with the ice amp installed. Must have had to many issues.

    Bowers & Wilkins New 600 Series Range for 2018

    Is it just me, or is the new centre a some what a down grade from the original htm61 centre?

    Will a top level Aventage power B&W 702 s2?

    I would do the opposite... I would bi amp and bi wire the L and R off the 3070 and use the power amp to power the 4 atmos channels. Creates an even sound all powered from the same source. Fronts powered by a different amp to the other speakers in ht sound diffetent to the rest. A bi amp'd 3070 will power the 702's just fine. 🙂

    Thoughts on an amp for B&W 685s2?

    Agree with above. Yamaha also go's well with B & W.

    what size screen

    Dedicated room i assume? A 120 inch screen would be a nice size and leave enough room for some speakers either side. If the walls and ceiling aren't going to be painted in a dark flat/matt colour paint, 100 inch would probably be better.

    Home Security Advice

    Was it really clear as day? I ask because i find my 2 way audio a bit laggy. It works okay but i find theres about a 4 second lag. Arlo is the best wire free cam/system by far. I also bought the solar panel for one of my cams, keeps the battery fully charged indefinitely.

    Arlo pro 2 is the way to go imo.

    Center speaker for B&W 685 S2's

    A third 685 would be ideal. Otherwise the HTM61 is a sweet centre speaker.
  11. Ive never heard of them but im in NSW. price sounds very reasonable. Just a side note; Im running similar equipment in a similar sized room. I would recommend ceiling mounting the projector closer to the screen. Around 4.5m from the screen would produce a brighter image and still leave plenty of zoom for adjustment. Also, have you thought about running all of your "ground" speakers off the avr and running the atmos of the external amp? (you will need a 4 channel external amp). By wiring this way, you can by wire and bi amp your front mains. Also, you will have all the "ground" speakers running off the same amp/s producing the same warm yamaha sound. Having the fronts on a different external amp may make them sound a bit different to the centre channel and the rest of the speakers. Im running an emotiva 5 channel amp, just for my atmospherix, they're great speakers. Cheers.

    Off The Rails Cinema

    Is the 10 - 15k for the room or everything? Carpet say 2k Painting/window furnishings say 2k Lounge say 3k Screen say 1k Projector say 5k Speakers and wiring 3k Subs say 2k Avr/bluray player 2k Theres 20k for a reasonably good set up, could easerly blow out to 25k. Lighting? Riser? Room treatments? 15k will get eaten up very quickly.
