the media room

a space exclusively for a full immersion audio/video experience

front & center

The room is small, 4m x 5.2m x 2.1m, less than 44 cubic meters — 13' x 17' x 7', 1550 c.ft. Currently using a pull down retractable screen. Future plans are for an acoustically transparent fixed frame screen.

Internal acoustic treatment is limited to the ceiling—50mm pyramid-cut acoustic foam over the seating area, 100mm over the front end—this was done only because of the low ceiling.

front row seats and two of the four cases for CD/DVD storage [total capacity 3200 CDs or 1600 DVDs, currently holding about 1300 CDs & 500 DVDs] — There is a single step up for a second row of elevated seating.

Pulling the main speakers out from the front and side walls improves two-channel listening. [See Omnidirectional Loudspeakers]

It's been a fun project. Glad it's done. The mess, disruption and babysitting of contractors is not fun. Now the real fun begins.
