Roman was extremely patient and helpful.

I finally decided to get Fusion Lagoons after debating on going with Lane or Berkline. Long term I think I made the best quality move. I am looking forward to having them shipped in a few weeks.

Can anyone tell me if the Fusion Lagoon's recline motion allows you to fully raise the foot rest without reclining much in either manual or power? It appears that the Tribute can stop in that position looking at one of the pictures on rtheaters.com (I assume this is powered recline, not sure if the Tributes come in manual or not).


Honestly all I really want is HT style seating (ie arm rests and cup holders) with recliners like in my La-Z-Boy couch that just raises the foot rest to parallel with the floor when released. Reclining is an option, but I almost never use that. Most HT seating pictures online seam to show completely closed, foot rest partially raised (45 degree angle), and completely reclined. And I can't tell if that means they start reclining before the footrest is raised or if the marketing data shows that everyone wants to lay down to watch a movie and so that's all they show.

We use the same reclining mech. on all our recliners, and it has the same action.

Great idea Bob. I ordered some of those light dim stickers and will try them out as soon as they come in.

What is the best way to clean the seats?

For automotive I usually use woolite and water and finish with leather conditioner. Would this be a good approach for theater seating?

Hi Larry M, been using water to clean but haven't applied any conditioner.

Would like to hear what others are using.

Roman, any suggestion?

Hey Guys,

I am still hoping to find someone who owns the Escapes in the Northern Indiana, Chicago, Indianapolis or Detroit area... that would entertain allowing my Wife and I to come sit in them. I would be open to driving 3+ hours if needed as after making an expensive mistake, related to fit on the furniture we have now... it would be worth it to try before I buy. I am in 46506. I am looking at getting 6 seats from Roman and would hate to get them just to find they push my head forward like the stuff I have now.

Thanks in advance,

Raymond

Wutang,

Your theater room looks great!!! Are your Escapes the leather/vinyl or the bonded leather? Any chance you get get a better photo of the back row with the love seat arrangement with some flash to show the leather color. These are exactly what I am trying to decide on (but I will go with the bonded leather). Would like to show the Wife how they look all setup.

Thanks,

Raymond

Rayo - I am traveling but will take another pic when I get back. These are the leather/vinyl. Roman sent me hi-res pics of both and they both looked great but in the end had to go with traditional leather.

I emailed about the escapes and got an immediate response. My theater is about 155 inches wide. I was thinking 3 seats, but if I do IOIOOIOI, 125" wide, then I will have front row seating for the whole family. This will leave only 15 inches clearance on each side to get to the back row. I would lose my awesome center seat position. I could also do 2 and 2 and leave an isle in the center.
It's all just preference but some opinions would be helpful.

I only have one row for now (make shift couch and recliner). But I ordered 4 escapes in loveseat config to replace those and my room is about the same width as yours (maybe a couple of inches thinner). I plan on having just one aisle down the side of the room. But I'll see how it goes after I get them. I really wanted a loveseat config so I went that route.

If and when I pull the trigger I would probably do 4 individuals pushed to one side. There is a pic on the rtheaters website of someone with escapes who did this. I prefer symmetry, but want 4 seats. I could separate and do the center isle. Again, the decision is just preference.

Thanks to BigmouthDC I saved some money. After looking on various sites and reading different threads, I decided to go with 8 tributes 4/4 straight black bonded leather. I hope they are as nice as everyone has said they are. Roman was a huge help with my decision. He was honest and very informative on all of his products. Now it's time to find a receiver!!

My Fusion Lagoons are shipping Monday morning and will be ready by Thursday for me to pick up.

Brown leather in IOVOOVOI configuration.

I will post pictures once they are set up. I think I will be very happy with this choice. I had debated the Berkline 222 but I believe that Roman's design is of superior quality and money better spent.


Roman has been great to deal with. Very patient.

Jeff,
Congrats in your purchase, I think I am getting close. What made you decide to go with the love seat and did you order the arm insert. Definitely post pics when you get them since I also want brown.

I went with the love seat due to space mostly. I have a riser behind with steps on either side. This fit perfectly. I debated about three chairs as there is my wife, daughter and I who will mainly use it. My daughter is 6 and will want to cuddle up with on of us so this gives us better apace for that. I also liked 4 over 3 as the room is 18 wide by 24 long, so three seats just would make the room seem smaller than it is.

I did order the armrest but that will not be in for another month.

I am very satisfied with my Lagoons bought from Roman. He is VERY responsive to all queries and that gave me a lot of confidence in doing business with him. I never talked to him over the phone -- the reviewers on this forum gave me all the info that I needed.
Th


An AVS member who sat in my theater claimed that they were more comfortable than the $2,500 seat (Acoustic Innovtions) that he purchased.

Maybe the Escapes deserve their own thread. My 4 black leather/vinyl |O|OO|O| were delivered today, white glove, while I was at work. I'll hold off on a full review until I have some more time with them, but so far they have lived up to the hype. Very comfortable, one of the neighbors boys fell asleep in one this afternoon. Quality seems good with some slight variation between them. There are some threads on the seams that need to be trimmed. Mechanisms are smooth with about a 6-7 second closure time. I would probably prefer an actual button to the touch sensitive ones but they are fine. One seat is a little lower but I think that is only because it is missing a foot, I'll contact Roman for a replacement. I have them plugged into an Insteon Outletlinc controlled by an insteon keypad so the seats can easily be turned on and off.
Our Cannon Powershot Elph 310 does not take the best pics, but here they are.

Got my Tribute's down here in Panama! Thanks Roman!

I couldnt wait to try one out so I just stuck it in my studio room for now hahahahaha! And oh yeahh, they are REALLY comfortable.

And a few things I noticed while watching my first movie on the tv was that.... a) I did adjust the seat more than 2 times during the movie... power recline rules! and b) YES, adjustable headrests are ALSO important!

Thanks for the recommendation I am REALLY happy with my purchase. Now just gotta get the cave done! smile.gif

My experience with Roman from rtheaters purchasing my HT seats was outstanding. Let me start mentioning I live in México and building a project like this is not an easy task, it is very hard to find this items down here and if you find them the price will be super high, so I went for the search and in AVSforum I saw people mentioning the great experiences they had with Roman, so I took a chance and how lucky I was, he is an example of great customer service, I sent an email and he responded in less than 5 minutes with a complete quote and recommendations for my project, this included different price options and setups, warranty, shipping etc, at the beginning I thought it was a program answering because of the speed but reading the response with so many details and tailored for my request I understood it was a real person helping me, after a few email conversations about the size of my room I selected the fusion line. Being down here it was difficult for me to get the money to Roman but his infinite flexibility helped me get the appropriate method. He went as far as creating an special parts replacement warranty that matched my location and shipping challenges, going thru customs etc.

Roman did an special second test for my purchases making sure that all chairs worked fine because once it crosses the border would be a pain and extra expenses to exchange anything, I have to say all seats arrive in excellent shape and work perfectly. They were very easy to assemble.

The seats are great quality, very comfortable and beautiful, I'm 1.8m height and 82kg and seats are perfect for me or anybody bigger, my kids love the almost horizontal position of the recliner, the actuator operation is very smooth. I'm very happy with these seats.

Overall I recommend anyone purchasing HT seats or any other HT equipment to connect with Roman, my experience is excellent he is very responsive an has very good quality products, I can say his prices are very competitive, and his customer service is outstanding.
