Future Upgrades

I have three items on my wish list, in no particular order:

  1. A projector with additional light output
  2. Ducted air conditioning
  3. Reclining cinema chairs

According to my calculation, to achieve the Dolby specification for light output, I require a projector with around 5000-lumen light output, which requires me to look at Barco. Unfortunately, this was outside my budget, but I’ve given it some thought. Projectors can be loud, therefore increasing the noise floor in the room, so I plan to build it into the ceiling with proper forced ventilation, projecting downward onto a specialized mirror to bounce it onto the screen.

I still have my white mini split cassette air conditioner in the room, which stands out like a sore thumb! At first, the idea was to paint it black, but as soon as the acoustic treatment was installed in the room, I noticed that the air conditioner significantly raised the noise floor. Another advantage of changing the unit will be the addition of fresh air into the room.

The reclining cinema chairs need no introduction because comfort is part of the moving-going experience!

I hope you enjoyed my personal journey.
