I tossed my HDTV and replaced it with a projector in my living room. Now that I've started into this theater business, I am thinking about investing in some theater recliners (Palliser Pacifico) to replace my sofa to complete the experience. I'd greatly appreciate it if anyone could answer my below questions:
1) I see that most people here have a dedicated theater room for movies and whatnot, but since my setup is in my living room, would the Palliser Pacifico be a good fit? Is there a difference between a regular recliner for the living room and a theater recliner in terms of how fast they wear and tear? Or even comfort? These will be used daily...
2) I searched the forum regarding bonded leather vs top grain leather and it seems that there are people who love both. I don't want to revive a debate on which is better and I'm not a leather enthusiast, but I would pay more for it if it meant the chairs would last longer. Just wondering if people who have the Pacifico with bonded leather could chime in on how they are holding up?
3) Looks like there is a Palliser Pacifico II in bonded leather at the theaterseatstore.com for $479 (manual recline). Wondering if this chair has the "new generation" of bonded leather that I was reading about in these forums? And if there is a big difference between to the Pacifico and the Pacifico II? They look exactly the same to me. And is newer always better for theater recliners?
4) What is the difference between Sinuous Springs and Individual Pocket Coils? The Pacifico II has the Individual Pocket Coils and the Pacifico, the Blade, and the Bullet has the Sinuous Springs.
Your help is greatly appreciated! If I should be looking at another set of chairs, please let me know as well. I would ideally like the option for tray tables and storage in the arm compartments (which I realize the Pacifico's do not have..) in my criteria. Price wise, $600 is max per chair, but closer to $500 is more realistic.
Sorry for all the questions!
