The main reason for Pink Floyd's DSOTM BDA being number one on the QuadraphonicQuad website poll is that it contains both a 5.1 and Quad mix of that classic album. Quite a few members there prefer the Quad over the 5.1. The SACD contains only a 5.1 mix. Same for the BDA and SACD releases of Wish You Were Here (5.1 & Quad vs 5.1)
My Denon AVR- X7200WA doesn't play quad FLAC (I've got all my MCH music converted and on a server for a better playback experience) but my quads were only playing back as stereo with no rear channel info. I had to add a silent centre channel and the Denon plays that back correctly, 5.0 with silent centre = quad.
I wrote a little app to auto find all my quad FLACS and convert to 5.0 as I have quite a few. The new Chicago Quadio (9 BDA disc box set) and a lot of old 70s quad releases plus some newer BDA and SACD quads too. If anyone wants it PM me and I'll whack the convention app on the web for download. It (currently) only runs on Windows.
I've recently moved into my place. There's a spare room, the study, which I would like to turn into a home theatre as I will definitely won't be using it for any work/study. Mostly using it for gaming and movies. I will be painting it in the future, but hoping to get
The main problem is the shape. In one corner (blacked out) is a chimney, and the other corner is a double glass door. There is also a skylight in the centre of the room and windows on the same side as the chimney. Seating position is about 3075mm to opposite wall and height of the room is 2980mm. I don't really want to replace the doors so I'm thinking some sort of thick curtain? Where would I get these from? Also need something to block out the skylight, so thinking I should just paint over it?

Paradigm Monitor 9
Paradigm Atom/Mini Monitor
Paradigm Surround 1
Any comments on the above system? My budget is $10k.
What rear speakers would suit the room shape/size considering I've already bought the couch.
