Sorry - it was my builder.

I'm sure i paid less than $2000 for two tiers of raised floor, and a complicated bulkhead in my theater

Actron is locally made and supported (QLD). I have the Livezi which is the same system essentially, just a different badge. In heating mode it barely ever raises beyond 30%…

I've got just a bit more to add. My point was that the spec itself is not a consideration, that the performance, and image quality was the consideration.

Our House

Mrs B, are they solid timber Blackbutt boards? If so, which flooring co. did you use? I'm currently finalising our timber floors.

So basically you're agreeing with what I say - that it comes down to image quality of one vs another.
I always say, don't buy the specs, buy the image.

not sure I agree Rod. If it is not about picture quality, why even consider 1080p as a criteria for purchase?
If looking at two Samsungs that have the same picture…

The main reason being that the advantage air system is older technology in terms…

yes you will need an amplifier
the cabling above covers it (5.1/7.1 - is the speaker cabling)

Thanks Casa.
The room is about 4.8 by 6.2m less the plaster etc. The most important thing in theatre size design is to avoid having a square shaped room!
