Wow. That's all we can say.
This is a home theater to beat all home theaters. Obviously this isn't a realistic set-up for those of us that earn less than seven, let alone five, figures, but it's an inspiration nonetheless. More about Jeremy Kipnis' $6 million (!!) theater after the break...
Kipnis has an 18-foot Stewart Snowmatte laboratory-grade screen that shows off video from a Sony ultra-high-resolution (4,096-by-2,160) SRX-S110 digital projector. While Kipnis has an 8.8-channel audio system, there are 8 Snell THX Cinema & Music Reference towers, three Snell LCR-2800 center-channel speakers, and 16 18-inch Snell subwoofers! Say what?!
He also augmented the treble on his Snell speakers with MuRata ES103A super tweeters. The subwoofers and the tweeters allow this home theater to accomplish the deepest bass (10 hertz) and the most extreme high-frequency range (100 kilohertz). A total of 11,315 watts of audio power can be pumped to the speakers with a series of audiophile solid-state and vacuum-tube amplifiers. Two mammoth General Electric 13,800-volt/800-amp step-down transformers power the whole thing.
Kipnis hopes to sell similar set-ups
to movie-industry professionals and wealthy home theater enthusiasts.
