First off, Roman is a real pleasure to deal with. Obviously I live no where near his place of business, so I needed to lean on him for advice and he's always responsive via e-mail and phone. I ended up going with a 5 chair row of the Fusion Escapes |oo|o|o|o| in black leather. The leather is outstanding, controls work very smoothly and the chairs are super comfortable. I also took advantage of the additional 5 year warranty for $120 for all of the chairs, which I thought was a smart move given all of the electronics.
Every person that sees the blue controls on the cupholder at night is memorized. lol I don't have the complete row setup yet (waiting on carpet), but 155" of chairs across is going to be impressive. They will be 11' from a 65" Panasonic VT50 series (don't ask it's still in the box)
with a 7.1 system using the massive HSU VTF-15H providing the low end, 5 polks and 2 Axiom QS8 v3's providing the side surround. Top it all of with a built in Middle Atlantic A/V in wall unit and I'm so excited, I can hardly stand it!!! Hurry up contractors!!
Last thing I'm trying to decide is what to do for universal remote. Stick with the iPad and Roomie program. Buy a dedicated universal remote. Buy a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 with its IR blaster or try and find some kind of RF unit to work with my devices. If anyone has any ideas about this, please respond. So many choices, but I just don't know what's best.
