We've seen our fair share of mancaves at Unplggd, from Steve's Australian haven
to ingredients in creating one of your own
, so it takes quite a bit of craftsmanship and wow-factor for a home theater to make a noteworthy appearance on our site. Luckily, Andre Werdenskrieg knows how to work them angles when it comes to modern mancave design, and it definitely shows in his recently renovated home theater space for his home. Filled with faux rock formations, Tetris-inspired 3D wall details, and his very own compute-while-I-watch TV iMac station, we can't seem to find a better place to kick back and relax than Andre's Mancave 2.0.
A small short list of Andre's components consist of the following: Humax CXHD-1000C, Krell KAV-3250, Logitech Harmony 1000 remote controller, Marantz AV8003, Panasonic DMR-EH65 250GB, Pioneer Kuro PDP-5080XD TV, Sony Playstation 3 60GB, Swans F1.1C speakers, Viablue SC-4 bi-wiring, Viablue Tri Absorber, and Viablue Tri absorbents (if you're curious on what the bloody heck all those Viablue components are, we suggest reading up a bit on the German manufacturers here
). For the lazy, the Viablue cables are just a bunch of fancy Monster-like speaker cables that cost about 100x the amount compared to your local Radioshack cables (just like the Monster cables sold here in the states).
A closer shot of the 3D Tetris wall pattern really shows how much some extra detail really adds depth to the space, especially accompanied by the faux stone attachment on the adjacent wall.
Finally, using an Apple iMac 20", he can browse the internet while watching TV or playing video games on his PS3, all from the comfort of his modern leather office chair. This way, if he accidentally misses a TV show, he can always stream it from Hulu.com, or download it, stream it to his PS3
, and then watch it from there. All this, without ever having to get up from his chair. Well, that is unless feels the need to replenish with a nice cold beer - which is just a few steps away behind him...
