General audio topics that don't fit into specific categories.

RE: Thanks for all the helpful suggestions. My responses........

A little higher than eye level since I tend to lean back in the sofa.

Even more so for me as I don't watch TV bolt upright nor view nearly as closely as the diagram in your link. My butt is about 14' from the screen. Just eyeballing what we like best works out exactly to be the recommendation at the link found below - 65" center for a 65" screen. I don't, however, favor a high above the fireplace approach.

I guess it depends on your choice of expert. ;)

Enjoy your new space - we're definitely loving ours.

edit: Another link I found said that The Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers requires a viewing angle of less than 35 degrees to top of screen. I calculated a 17 degree angle given the distance.
