I am a bit late to the game in following up on this thread. Been very busy over the past few weeks and finally had time to respond.

After my initial posts here complaining about the length of time it took to receive my Fusion 1019 chairs, I want to thank Roman for going to bat for me and getting them into my home on the same day they were unloaded from the ship's pier.

I opted for the white glove delivery. It was costly, but well worth it. Two men came to my home, brought both chairs down to my basement theater, unpacked and completely set them up. They were very professional, and made certain I understood every aspect of operating the chairs.

I am extremely happy with the Fusion 1019 chairs. By far, the best recliner I have ever sat in. It is the ultimate luxury chair.

The only thing I don't like about the chairs are the electric cooling cups. The biggest problem is that there is no way to know whether they are operating or not. The cooling indicator switch remains on whether it is operational or not. To find out if it's actually turned on, I have to either put my ear to the cup to hear the motor -or- stick my fingers in the cup to see if there is motor vibration (which would indicate it is on).

Additionally, it seems the cooler only stays on for a limited amount of time and then shuts itself off. There is no way to know when this happens, as I have mentioned, there is no "on" or "off" indicating switch. This needs to be improved.

Does the electric cooling cup keep drinks cold? Barely, would be my response. While the surface of the drink cup holder gets quite cold, I don't think it's chill is efficient enough to keep even a cold drink at optimal temperature.

Don't get me wrong -- I am absolutely elated with the quality of the chairs. Even bought the extended warranty because I wanted these chairs to serve me well for years to come. I just would advise people not to buy the Fusion 1019 chairs based on its cooling arm cup holder. It's the most lackluster aspect of an otherwise amazing chair.

Ron,

Thank you for your feedback.

A few things to mention and clarify:

1. There is a ON/Off button for the cooler. The LED on the cooler button is there to identify where the control is. It is not indicating whether the cooler is ON or OFF because of the reason that we wanted to turn all LEDs off when you LOCK the cup holder. For people who are really sensitive to the LEDs lights, it works very well.
2. The cooler is not a real refrigeration type, but rather similar the one those you can find in the computers where the CPU is being cooled by the fan on top it sucking the hot air out. From my experience the cooler does keep the drink cold as long as it was pre-chilled before. In many cases the temperature in the HT room rises by 1-3 degrees because of the running equipment and people there generating heat. The drink on the other hand would stay at the same temperature...
3. The cooler has a 4 hour shut off, so even if you accidentally turn the cooler on, it will turn off automatically.

Just got in the new console. My initial impression is that it is really nice. I have three lagoon chairs I got about two years ago in a IOOIOI configuration with the removable armrest insert. Never really liked the removable armrest because it is at a much lower height than the permanent arms so it always felt awkward to me. The new console is at the right height so already like that a lot. Having the storage with the bottom drawer and beneath the armrest is nice. The power outlets and the usb ports are great. I was running a really long usb from my wall before but always hated having that cord be so visible and in the way. I have not really used the included lights much yet but they look pretty nice. Wish they had an on/off switch though. They stay on when plugged in and you have to remove them if you want to turn them off. There is also a light that comes on when you plug in a usb cord. Not really liking that as I like to keep lights in my theater to a minimum and the usb light is a bit distracting as I can see it in my peripheral vision so I put a piece of black electrical tape over it so not a deal breaker.

Overall very happy so far. Anyone on the fence, I would recommend getting it. Happy to answer any questions about it.

Looks nice...

I would not plug in the light if they are not in use. When you need them it is as easy to plug them in as turn the switch on.

Guys I had the pleasure of speaking with Roman last night on the phone. Everything people have said about his customer service and knowledge is spot on. I am going to buy a pair of the Escape's for part of my wife's anniversary present. Will most likely get the bonded (don't like the shinny look of the other and its cheaper) but I am on the fence with 2 things and would like some feedback.

1. Those that have had these chairs for a few years, do you feel like they are built well enough that I can pass on the extended warranty (if this helps, my wife and I are regular size, so they shouldn't ever have more than maybe 205 pounds in my chair, unless my golden retriever gets in my lap)

2. Buttkickers. I am torn, they sound awesome, but that adds almost $700 for 2 chairs. I'm on a budget, but is it SUCH a plus that I have to break the bank and get it? (I realize I could always buy them later)

Finally, the straight vs the curved configuration, not sure I completely understand that. The chairs aren't physically attached either way right?

Thanks in advance for any shared thoughts. And Roman I will be calling to place an order in the next day or two for sure!

There are some good diagrams of curved versus straight on Romans website under the specifications section for your model of chair. The only difference is the shape of the armrest between chairs. No, they still don't attach.

If the full buttkicker price is too rich many guys retrofit their chairs with cheaper brand shakers and use a non-buttkicker amp.

Parts express has some different shakers.

I've had mine for a bit over a year and can't speak for the buttkickers but as far as being well built, they certainly are. I got the extended warranty for 2 reasons: one is that we have cats and young nephews and I could see them destroying things. The second reason was because of the electronics - if something was to go wrong, I'd imagine this would be it.

Just my thought - but you'd probably be able to pass. Then again - how much is it for only 2 chairs? It may be worth if for the peace of mind alone.

You can always add the buttkickers later as well. The new chairs from Roman are all "buttkicker ready" so you can add them later if you decide to.
