Looks really cool!

How do you find the height of the screen? I've got my main Kuro that high, but the other two much lower and I sometimes wonder if it's a bit high?

Looks a bit high for my tastes but each to their own. Mines is around a metre high. Eye level third of the way up the screen is my rough guide.

I did not want it at the height it is currently, my wife wanted a fire so that impacted on the height and the fire couldn't be any lower due to the regulations stating minimum height without a hearth below it.
I could have purchased a narrower centre speaker but did not want to compromise on the sound.
Saying all that it is not that bad to watch at the height it is. At the end of the day it is not a dedicated room (unfortunately).

Hi Gel,

Nice to see you back.
The TV is a LG 55 E7.

I recently had to have the panel replaced due to one half of the screen having a grey tint.
The picture is actually better than before.

That's a familiar sounding story. My Kuro is higher than I'd really like it, so it's above a cabinet to keep Mrs scene happy... Having said that, like you use l I've not found it so bad, and like you it's not a dedicated room, so compromises have to be made...

How do your rear surround speakers sound that setup would be perfect for my small room where I was struggling to find where they could go allowing for a door and other awkward problems

I mainly sit in the middle of the settee and the surrounds work really well even though I am fairly close to them.
The sound dispersion is quite wide.
I do also have 4 in ceiling speakers for a 5.1.4 Atmos setup.

Thanks for the info I was thinking of using the Monitor Audio FX but just wasn't sure how to fit them in - food for thought

Interesting! As big an improvement as they claim and easy enough to do?
Sorry for the very late response.
The mod is very easy to do, just take your time with it.
I have noticed an improvement in video and audio, not sure it is night and day for the cost.
But I am glad I did it.
