With the majority of the construction work complete, I turned my attention to putting the room back together, beginning with remounting my projector. With the ceiling now at a much lower foot, 7-inch height, my old ceiling mount and long suspension pole would hang almost to the floor, so a replacement was in order. Fortunately, I found some great deals on used equipment on eBay. This allowed me to mount a three foot section of Unistrut to my ceiling and gave me placement options ranging from 96 inches to as long as inches from my screen.
As an added bonus, I was able to move my current projector forward about 6 inches and increased its brightness in the process. Going through such an extensive construction process also allowed me to fix some of my in-wall wiring challenges with the old room setup.
I had previously been using a meter The newly lowered ceiling cut the distance down by nearly half. But with high-bandwidth 4K on the horizon, I was also worried about using another traditional meter 33 feet HDMI cable—even one with the Redmere technology.
So I ran multiple Cat6 cables from my equipment rack into my new attic space and decided to try out an HDBaseT transmission solution.
Installation was a breeze and it works like a charm. Fortunately, Rob asked me to review the new Marantz AV Atmos-enabled flagship surround processor review coming soon. My current amplifiers include a five-channel Parasound Halo A51 for my front three speakers and side surround speakers, along with a Parasound Halo A23 stereo amp for my rear surrounds. Rack space in my custom made cabinet is at a premium and there was no way to include an additional component to power my planned 7.
So I would need to replace the A23 with another amplifier delivering a minimum of six channels. This limited my options severely. Fortunately, Parasound came to the rescue by releasing its new channel ZoneMaster Model This is a highly flexible component designed to appeal to custom installers running large multizone audio systems.
My next decision was what to install for the in-ceiling Atmos height speakers. So I turned to other options. One concern I had about using in-ceiling speakers is hot spotting—the ability to pinpoint exactly where the sound is coming from. To help alleviate this phenomenon, I wanted speakers with a very wide dispersion pattern. This is where Atlantic Technology stepped in with its newly announced IC-6 OBA speaker above , which was specifically designed for object-based audio systems.
It includes a 6-inch woofer coupled with dual 1-inch soft dome tweeters and is designed to eliminate hot spotting and localization. I contacted the Atlantic Technology president Peter Tribeman via email, and he assured me they would be out in late January or early February at the latest.
So I went ahead and ordered four speakers. Fortunately I was able to reuse all of my prior room treatments. I did have to reconstruct a couple of four-foot panels to fit my needs along with changing their color schemes by purchasing some acoustically-transparent black fabric.
Fortunately my wait for the in-ceiling speakers was only a couple of weeks from the time of construction, and I spent a Saturday morning cutting holes for the speakers, stuffing the ceiling enclosure with Polyfill, and installing them.
Once installed, I ran through an Audyssey calibration. It was time to find out if the project was worth all the time and expense.
