No offense to the rest of you but this^^ is a huge compliment. Randy is the sole reason I got started (addicted) to AVS and the bar/home theater dream. Once upon a time waaaaaaaaaay back when I was searching the net for TV's and somehow ended up on bar building plan sites, next thing you know I found AVS and Randy's build thread. Over the next few months/year I asked Randy nearly 10k questions (most of them ignorant) and he graciously answered each and every one both in my thread, his thread or PM. I actually ordered my bar rail from a local (to Randy)wood shop in West Virginia thanks to his recommendation. Randy has helped me immensely on here and many, many others. I took Randy's bar building tips and built my basement bar which morphed into home theater build 1.0. After that the addiction worsened and I decided to commence construction on version 2.0 and the rest is history. When I sought out I NEVER in a million years set out to build a bar or even a home theater let alone a 2nd home theater. I am now addicted and the only thing stopping me is that I am out of space. Thanks Randy and its great to see you still around these parts and still checking in. Maybe you will still be around here when I get to actually completing the darn thing.

Ok so as you know I wrestled with which direction to go with my seating choice and like all my major purchase decisions it took me quite some time to hammer out. After much debate I decided to go with Roman and his tribute line. There were a couple reasons I chose these including his great reputation around here, the included 5 year warranty and the fact that I could get his seats in power recline (with "snack" trays) for the same price as the manual recline chairs (without trays and no warranty)from the other retailer. Without going into too much detail I will just say this.......I ordered 5 chairs from Roman 2 of which were damaged (not from shipping as the boxes were in good shape). The chairs were nicked in the same spot at the base of their arms. Roman quickly responded and shipped me 2 new replacement arms so that I could swap them out and be good to go. When the 2 new arms arrived 1 was damaged the same way in the same spot. Of course Roman shipped me a 3rd arm and now all is well. This appears to be something that happened or is happening at the factory as they are being boxed but let me tell you Roman made SURE to make things right with me. The best part is now i know how to disassemble and reassemble my chairs in case of an emergency.......lol. It also gave me a chance to take a look at things underneath and inside which I probably would not have been interested in doing if they arrived safely. The chairs are very well built and quite comfortable and while I did not plan for power recline chairs I am sooooo glad I got them now. The "tilt-able" headrests on the Tributes is really a neat feature and the "snack" tray (as Brad calls it)really is an added bonus. I would not hesitate to purchase from Roman again as he is for sure deserving of his great reputation on here. Anyone who is hesitant or has questions regarding the issue with my chairs feel free to pm me otherwise enjoy the show....................




And with "snack" trays (Brad)



Back row








I also got some more of the acoustic panels up and in place and cleaned the room up a bit to take some current pics.

And there you have it...........and on day 7 Steve rested!!!!!

The best part is the "to do" list is shrinking by the day..............Yippeeeee time for version 3.0??????

Hi! Happy New Year!

You were one of the more actively interested people in my build thread a few years ago. I have since sold that house and will be starting a new theatre build in our new home later this year so I will be looking for your posts in my thread

Good times good times

Any HT related plans lately?

I think I'm finally going to break down and do my rack right (replace the Slim 5 on rollers with a built in), it's complete mess and impossible to do any wiring mods on. Pondering changing my PJ bulb too haha, that's about it. Watching movies is good.

Well hello there my old friends! How the heck are ya?

Truth be told (and I won't go into too much detail) but I may be "forced" into a situation to liquidate the theater.

Once as close to completed as it got we rarely use it. We love to watch movies but for some odd reason never did. Well life has thrown me an unforeseen possibility of the big D. While I hope this doesn't happen im not sure of my chances of survival....sadly!

Let's hope it gets turned around.

The room is not even close to broken in. Chairs still have hang tag literature on them, panny ae4000 only has a few hours and so on.....ugggh! The thought of it all tears me up
