Found these pics of the system I did in 1993 and redid in 1999. Pharell bought it in 2007.
In addition to Torus cinema this is the most automated home I have ever done. Everything is automated including the curved front door. 2 years of bi weekly meetings plus oversight more like 3 years.














Cinema Phoebe with white acoustical pearwood, JBL Synthesis one, Barco 1200 replaced by g-90, mac amps and mac multiroom and crestron and lutron.

Naw this CRT PJ is old stuff. I am now into precompensated-aperture-rotation fixed lens dual 6P 4k laser in HFR cool.gif,and I am designing such beast for someone we all know and at 180k less than Christie's and without mirrors, with 20% more mtf.

The synchronous connection however, is that because of the despicable me soundtrack (which Pharrel mixed on Hans Zimmer's Questeds) I found Quested, the ideal solution for object based surround systems' transparency.

We custom built those first in 1989 for Titan with Christopher Hansen doing the Meyer sound. So it's a carry over from the 80's. They are very comfortable and the leather is top grade. These seats were delivered in 1993.I assure you that they do not look like lazy boys from the front. Just look at the architectural in the rest of the fkat and all I can say the seats are consistently classy.

Hmm, Christies was better you said following the recent public demo's, so what changed to get Barco back on top?

"Sometimes it's difficult to score enough parking spaces in urban condo buildings, but you won't have that problem if you buy Pharrell Williams' swanky penthouse for $10.9 million. He has seven assigned parking spaces, enough for an entire entourage.

As reported by Lucas Lechuga with Miami Condo Investments, the home has all kinds of lavish features: a private elevator straight to the top, 180-degree wraparound balcony and rooftop terraces with a pool and hot tub. The five-bedroom condo features more than 9,000-square-feet of living space and floor-to-ceiling glass walls.

Williams is a member of the Grammy Award-winning duo The Neptunes and has worked with Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, Jay-Z and Robin Thicke. You can hear him on Daft Punk's latest hit, "Get Lucky."

Here's your chance to get lucky, by saving 35 percent on a celebrity sky palace in Miami!"
