Lulz, I would never contemplate moving couches into the basement by me self.
what are you using for audio? I dont see any speakers in those pics yet. and how wide is your basement?
Not 100% yet on the speakers but I have a Denon 4311ci as the receiver.
I was pretty much dead set on B&W CM9 & CMC2 but then researched a bit more and am now leaning towards JTR but not sure yet because I can't really demo them. I'm contemplating flying to WI to demo them with sonm Southwest points I have. I could do demo them and cone back in the sane day.
Most like JTR for subs as well and I may blind purchase those too just based off of feedback.
As far as moving furniture myself yeah it was not fun but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!
Man, you really owe it to yourself to audition the Salk SongTowers. You may even have someone close to you that will let you demo them.
ill try to see if i can find someone local.
When I bought my B&W 805's and HTM4, the only other speaker in the shop that I considered buying were Sonus Faber. They were outstanding but too expensive at the time
I've been wanting to check out the GoldenEar Tritons but knowing I will never buy them has me hesitating
well i did end up getting them set up before the game. here are some pics.
need my speakers ASA FUCKING P!
Second seat from the left is gonna be pretty bummed when everyone else is reclining and he has a pole in his back. Nice build though; I wish I had the time, space, money and resolve to do something like that myself.
nope it will fully recline. it only needs 3" from the wall (or pole) behind it in order to fully recline. as you recline the seat starts to slide forward.
it's probably 5-6 inches from the pole.
you're annoying, stop posting in here if you gonna just troll.
if it were me id blow the few hundred $ worth of FF points to go and demo something to eliminate all the what iffs
yeah i am strongly considering doing it.
sometimes i think you want my room finished more than i do
im jealous of the fact that you have a room
haha. it's funny because i was not thinking theater/projector AT ALL and was just going to demo some speakers. and when i demo'd them i demo'd them in a theater room with 100" screen. within like 5 seconds im like "*** THIS BASEMENT IS BECOMING A THEATER!!"
so i just powered up all of the chairs and ran the wires below them to the wall.
i took some pics of that one chair full reclined that has the pole behind so you can see how it reclines just fine.
I'm interested in this too. Been following it for a while. At the end, post a breakdown of stuff you bought, list the price, and post a total.
Looks like you've done a great job, very organized. Nice to see it done the right way.
Looks good so far.
Your room's a beast, beast.
The chairs are powered? We have gotten seriously disgusting as a society that we can't even be bothered to recline under the power of gravity any more. Worse, now I want one of those ****ing chairs!
haha, yup they are powered. luxury at it's finest!
although these chairs don't have a tray table like many of them do, so it's not as luxurious as it possibly could be.
See what you can afford when you don't splurge on high end cables and power bars.
Now get your darn speakers so we can all have an envious look.
hey jackburton, how would these compare to the level of speakers i'm currently looking at, as far as like the same performance/price range?
he is about 15 minutes from me and i think i'm going to go demo them. however, if this type of speaker is below or way above the level i'm looking at, i probably will skip it.
Man, definitely go check them out. Especially if he's just 15 minutes away. The ribbon tweeters are preferred, but the dome tweeters should sound really good too. The SongTowers are about $2k for the pair, I can't remember if that's in your price range or not. Those SongTowers came highly recommend by my calibrator who's speciality is audio (the guy has years of experiences with ultra high end gear). I haven't had the chance to listen to them myself, so I'd be interested to see what you thought of them. I'm willing to bet they'd blow the B&W 683's out of the water.
You definitely have a great selection to choose from (Salk vs JTR). I don't think you'd go wrong with either one you chose.
