We set up the chairs last night. They were heavier than anticipated. For one guy with a bad back anyway.
I ordered 8 Tributes (2 rows of four straight) the row on the risers has a love seat config |o|oo|o| in the middle with the optional armrest. I'm very happy I added the armrest.
There is nothing to install. It just drops right in and fits snugly and it stable to the point you wouldn't know it wasn't part of the chairs.
The chairs are the bonded leather type.Comfort
: Our biggest fear was the comfort & support not being adequate. I will say they are outstanding and head and shoulders above what I was expecting.
We sat in every theater chair we could find locally and nothing compares to the Tributes. Not even close. (Some chairs were around $4k for a row of 4)
I have a bad lower back and I complain about almost any seat not being up to par. I'm constantly turning and stretching in restaurants to get comfy.
My wife and I both love these seats, I'm just under 6' and she's 5'4 and nether of us had any complaints.
After sitting through our first movie we felt the same. We weren't sore, cramped, or anything of the sort.Build Quality
: The chairs look and feel solid. All the power recliners worked great.
The backs of the chairs inserted smoothly and locked in snugly with no play involved.
There was a couple threads that needed snipping, no big deal.
We both loved the manual adjustable headrests. They are easy to bring forward and move back. I think I'd prefer them over power headrests.
My 4 yr old loves to press buttons, so one less thing to worry about.
The removable trays that came with the chairs were nice looking but smaller than I expected though of good quality and felt sturdy enough to put snacks on and what not.
The power cords on the chairs were plenty long and tied neatly. The storage space in the arms is plenty deep and spacious for all kinds of remotes, magazines, etc.
The only complaint I have and this might be able to be remedied is the arms pop up too easily when bumped. We have two armrests that really pop up easily with the slightest bump.
The rest of the arms seem fine. I'll have to ask Roman if there is an easy fix.
Overall we are extremely pleased and would recommend the Fusion Tributes. 5 out of 5 stars providing they hold up over the years which I'm confident they will
Almost forgot about the looks. They are dead sexy as far as I'm concerned. Classy and Modern looking without being over the top.
Ready for the unboxing.

Love Seat config in back row WITHOUT optional armrest
Love seat config WITH armrest
I didn't realize how close the front row would be to the speakers. Kind of kicking myself not ordering the in wall triads I had picked out, Maybe in the future,
They are about 8' away from the front row although the pics make it look closer than it is,Edited by Cobb28 - 2/13/13 at 2:53pm
