I am in the processing of buying components for my home theatre
I did not think that finding appropriate seating would be so tricky
I looking for 4 seats--love seat in the middle, left and right on the ends.
Want the length of the set not to exceed 130"
I saw a curved wedged double love seat combo at 115" at elite hts that could also work and they quoted me 18k which is way out of budget

I need a high quality option in the 4-6k range
It seems like there are super inexpensive models (with limited or no warranties) and then sky high priced models that are out of budget

Would appreciate recs or sources to get some type of discount on elite or fortress products

Thanks

Another quality manufacturer to consider is Bass. Hand built in the US (North Carolina) and they can customize as well. You could probably get what you want for around 6K if you bargined hard.

jcs2000,
If we are talking the same Elite company then one Elite model, the C1-M, can be purchased in power recline for less than the price you have quoted but still a bit higher than your budget. The C1-M as a straight loveseat, |O|OO|O|, is 116" wide.

Also, take a look at the following brands:

* RowOne (Domestic Chairs): Made in USA

* Palliser: Canadian company with factories in both Canada and Mexico where chairs are made to the same standards in both factories

* Jaymar: Canadian company where all chairs are made in their Canadian factory

* Coja (pronounced coy-yah): Made in USA

If you can source United Leather home theater seating, I would highly recommend them. Much better quality than Palliser and styles I prefer to the others above. Should be around your budget.

Thanks for the suggestions.
Yes, Elite is running a sale on the C1 models.
Was able to get the curved double love seat OO|OO at 115" at a discount.

Nice choice A bit over budget but 100% quality leather, customization, standard power and 10 year warranty makes it worth a little extra.
