    The room is functional not much in the way of dress up. The Atmos works very well with good separation from 1 speaker to the next on all 6 in ceiling speakers. ( thank you Marrantz).
    I wish to thank David Susilo who is my expert on the job.
    Are you in journalism? Thatís a very eye-catching title for the thread. My Coming Out

    Nice theater! Enjoy it!!

    I had no idea Wilson made surround channels. Center, yes, but never paid enough attention to notice surrounds in their portfolio. When I saw your first picture of the seating, I thought "kind of a Wilson vibe going on there; does he really have them up front?". And sure enough!

    I know the rule is to put Atmos in line with the mains like you have them. Do you find you get enough separation laterally from the surrounds? I would have been very tempted to tweak them a tad closer to centerline (no more than a foot or two), just as a visual placebo.

    By the way, what speakers did you use for the Atmos channels? I know it's not quite as critical to timbre match those, but you've gone to such trouble (and expense!) on the others that I'm curious. We're in the middle of putting together a multichannel media space with Atmos (though not as dedicated as what you have) based on Focal Kantas for the mains. Fortunately, Focal has an in-ceiling line that comes close enough to keeping the family voicing similar to the Kantas.

    I don't see your subs. Are they hiding behind the screen? Did you go with Wilson on those too?

    I do get good separation on my overheads. Some discs it just fills the room with more music so you get more of feeling you are more in the middle of it as opposed to having the sound coming more as a front stage (Greatest Showman). Other discs the separation is much more distinct like the knock at the door that comes from behind your right shoulder (Knives Out) and is startling. The good serration I attribute the Marantz 8805. I would not tweak them closer to the centre line you would be compromising your separation. My joist run front to back and I would have moved them one joist over but I had a duct in the next one. Before I go much farther on this you might want to reach out to David Susilo he is the expert( and knows his stuff) I only give you my opinions.
    My overheads are Dynaudio. I have owned that brand before and quite liked them. I looked at Martin Logan as well but trust Dynaudio better. The 4 Wilson Watch I picked up used, got a bargain I could not resist.I had also heard that set up at Pargon Sound In Michgan. When I heard it I was very impressed. My subs are underneath the platform and behind a curtain JL F113 x2.I'm battling too much bass. A perfed screen was never a consideration.

    I thought I would update my first front on shot. The speakers were newly installed(speakers are still on wheels).
    Here is a shot 64 movies later and room treatment added.
