Article: Installing My 7.1.4 Immersive Audio System


Recommended Posts

Congratulation Chris.  Not only are you a true Audiophile, a tech nerd (in the most polite and sincere sense of the phrase) but a true Do It Yourselfer.  I'm impressed with your handy work and knowing that the right tool for the job makes all the difference.  Your space looks good enough for Better Homes and Gardens. One of the print audio or recording publications should do a story on your space, even if you're one of their competitors.

 

Can't wait to hear/see more.

How many 20 Amp feeds do you need up there to run this? It looks amazing and I am certain that it will sound that way as well. Be ready for some demo requests from all the major suppliers. Looking forward to the future articles. CONGRATS!

 

 

I have my own separate 60 amp sub panel :~)

I am never not impressed with the quality of your work, and the end results Chris. I'll hire you to work on my new listening area...  ;-)

Thanks for the kinds words Doc. You'll have to come over once the fine tuning is complete.

Love that endoscope.  What a good idea!

Just to pile on with the praise:

A) It must sound incredible - I'd love to hear it;

B) It's great to have the space and the ability to do this;

C) If I had the space, I would pay lots of money for someone to do a professional install. No way  I could do it. And even with the ability, it's a huge project that you took on, researched and executed.

Impressive.

Thanks so much @firedog.  Many good things to come :~)

so now... let the games begin !!

 

It just struck me that you have invested all of this time and effort and $$$ hoping that it will be worth it. I'm pretty sure the sound will be there, but will the immersive experience be all that you  hoped it would be?

 

Since I already had the 11.3.6 theater set up, for me it was just a matter of obtaining the software to play. From my limited experience with the relatively small number of titles I have (about 20) I don't think it would have been worth it for me to add all that you added to get the immersive experience. Glad I have it since it is indispensable for movies and some of the audio discs have been fun to listen to, but for me it would not be worth the investment if audio only. Maybe as my library expands I will change my mind. 

 

eagerly looking forward to your take on it now that your are ready to hit the PLAY button

Bruce,

I see this as a future play by Chris. Two channel is very mature at this point so this is a way to stay relevant as immersive audio takes hold. I doubt that right now there a more than a handful of people who would go to the lengths that Chris has with this project. But, as the library of material expands and the tech matures and prices come down, more and more will want to do it. And, what better place to find the knowledge base than right here. Plus, all the equipment manufacturers must be licking their chops in anticipation. As you said, let the games begin.

Exploring Atmos contents in Apple Music is my new hobby. 😆 More than ten mastered or remastered for Atmos albums released every week. I’m very enjoying it and it becomes major % of my listening time.

Chris’ system is also appropriate for traditional MCH listening, which you may properly call “immersive” as well — 5.1 audio. There’s a lot of those albums around. And then, although lossy, Apple Spacial keeps adding albums each week. So, there’s plenty of “immersive” audio content for listening, today, in my view. JCR
