nacthenud Posted December 6, 2018 Share Posted December 6, 2018 On Tuesday December 5th, at 12:37am after 18 hours of labour over 3 days, my new home theatre was born. It is healthy and quite lively and weighed in at 239.8lbs. At the heart of this new sound system is an Onkyo TX-NR787 Receiver powering the Atmos and DTS-X capable 5.1.4 setup. Centre Channel is a Polk S35, with twin Polk S60 tower speakers for the Left and Right Channels. Surrounds are handled by Polk S20 Bookshelf speakers and Subwoofer is a beefy Polk HTS 12. Since they all fall within the same “Signature” line, they are nicely timber matched. For the height channels, I repurposed the satellite speakers from the old Sony HT-DDW795 system that was my previous home theatre for the last decade and wall and ceiling mounted them angled towards the central seating positions. The home theatre system is a nice compliment to the 65” LG B7 OLED 4K HDR TV, so that the benefits of 4K UHD Blu-rays can be fully realized in both video AND audio. The other children are excited to enjoy the new 3D positional soundscape, and we hope they will have many happy memories together over the coming years! I thought I would share some photos of the man cave, because everyone loves to share photos of their newborns. Behind the couch has a good chunk of the movie and game collection, though far from all. 95% of my games are digital downloads these days though. The movies are generally ordered alphabetically within genre - unless they are part of a series, in which case they are grouped chronologically with the series together, such as the MCU movies or Disney animated movies or X-Men movies. If anyone has some suggestions for great Atmos or DTS-X movies to put the system through its paces, let me know in this thread!
