a couple of pics of the jbl shyntesis demo taken by one of the guys of the French forum I usually go to, the room wasn't great but the demo was WOW!!

the 4 subs is a WOW trust me!

Man, I decided to go with the 103 and pour the rest of the funds into some theater seating. My 7 year old sofa is severely out of place.

Seats are really a good choice. I had a regular sofa in my room for the longest time. Then I said, the heck with it, I want recliners. I really wanted to be able to relax with my legs up like I saw in so many other systems. But, I was space constrained. I needed narrow seats so I could get two in my room. Lucky for me, I found lazy boy. They had some really nice seats and the size was perfect so I could get two. They are so comfy it's crazy. I would not call them "home theater" chairs since they don't have cup holders, but I can live with that. The other good thing is I was able to place the chair directly in the sweet spot unlike my seating position with the couch. What seats are you thinking about?

Ah, so you're familiar with the transition from casual seating to purpose-driven seating. I'm glad you were able to find the perfect comfortable solution man. I'm looking at three of these seTs in black : http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/htmarket_2232_109459213 I really like their design.

Lol...not yet, thanks to selling older gear to make room for newer gear! If I hadn't done that, I'd still be saving for my 2nd Submersive F2 HP! Things are about to slow down considerably though. I recently finished my second graduate degree and,well, lets just saythat Student Loans are the new gadget. Lol. I still have a plan for a speaker upgrade though...hopefully early 2013.

That is what they look like. The leather is great and is very comfy. The only thing I don't have is a cup holder. Oh well. They serve me fine.
Hopefully by "older set" you did not mean these tongue.gif.

Sir Duke, Knight and Protector of the Eastern Sylvanian Marches,

Nice seats.  Those remind me of the leather recliner that I have in my upstairs media room.  Very comfy with smooth wood arm rest. I don’t even miss the cup holder in that chair and I’m sure you forget there’s no cup holder as you immerse yourself in the JM Lab + Submersive sound!  Do you and Frank (Franin) have the same JM Lab speaker model?  I really, truly want to pick up the Catalyst 12-C’s, but…fiscal responsibility keeps delaying me.

If ever I find myself in the Sylvanian Marches, I shall be sure to contact both you and Sir John, Knight of Craigskeep and Protector of the Penn Vale.  From what’s been said at the council meetings, there be dragons in both your systems.

Yes, Frank and I have the same front speakers and center channel. He uses different surrounds then I do though. Yes, there be Dragons smile.gif. Yea, I really don't miss the cup holders to be honest. They are just what I need and really make the movie watching experience that much better. Also, yes, be sure to announce your intentions for venturing into the North country. My Keep should be available.

Hey guys, here's a video I shot for the Lumagen RadianceMini 3D thread. Thought I'd share it here, for anyone on the fence of getting one for it's NLS abilities:

The Oppo BDP-103 comes tomorrow! The first movie up will be Prometheus 3D! I've heard very good things about the video and audio (read: bass) quality of this film. I'm looking forward to flexing these Submersives. Speaking of which, Bass Mekanik has a 10Hz to 20Hz track--it's insane. If you have a Sonos system (or if your computer is hooked up to your system and you have rhapsody), check out Bass Mekanik's Quad Maximus album. Great way to flex the prowess of your sub(s).

I picked up my 93 right at the end of production so there is curiosity if I am missing anything with the introduction of the 103.

We watched Prometheus this weekend and its a pretty good movie for all the reasons you mentioned and is a keeper in my library.

I had the 927's also. I traded them in for the 1027's. I liked them very much but when the deal came up for the 1027's, I could not turn them down.

Watching Prometheus tonight on the 93, looking forward to it. Im curious to read the difference between the 93 and the 103 esp for blu ray.

Let's not take up Brolic's thread with how awesome my choice was to move to the 1027's smile.gif. I found that last video very interesting. Whether it's a lens thing, projector thing screen thing or a combo of all of them, if I could do a front projector setup, I think it would it would cool to have a setup that no matter what aspect ratio the movie is in, it will fill the entire screen with no black bars. You still digging the F2's? As if I need an answer to that one tongue.gif.
