How could you not love a couple who admits to their bad habits -- watching from bed. Admitting that the most likely time they'll want to relax in front of the boob tube is when they're in bed, one couple remodeled their master bedroom to accomodate their weakness. While it doesn't boast a gagillion inch projection screen and rumble seats, it does provide the best of both TV viewing worlds. The couple, who submitted their remodel to Home Theater Design magazine, play content via a Dish Network VIP 622 DVR HD satellite receiver or Oppo BDP-83 Blu-ray player onto a 60-inch Pioneer Elite Pro150FD plasma.
Blockbuster sound comes out of a 7.1 surround sound system that includes a pair of B&W 802Ds and a B&W HTM1D center channel for the left-center-right array. Two B&W 803’s power the side channels and two Definitive Technology Mythos Super Towers provide sound for the back rear channels. Plus there's an 18” Velodyne DD18BG subwoofer. Everything's powered by a 7-channel x 300W Lexicon ZX-7 amplifier and a Lexicon MC-12HD Surround Processor.
As audio lovers, the couple installed acoustic panels on the walls -- those geometric shapes above the bed -- and have an upgraded/modified (by Reference Audio Mods) Sony NS 9100 ES that plays CDs and SACDs. "I kept an 'antique' DUAL turntable for the records I still have around," the reader told Home Theater Design magazine.
