I think that you will find that most people around here aren't very impressed by the Palliser home theater line. MK
I did a search for Palliser and could only find this thead.
Where did you find the posts that verify your statement?
I have now tried out the Connery, Penumba and Regent, all by Palliser, and was totally impresed with the comfort of the Regent--cushy yet firm at the same time. I found that the Connery (available with Aura Pro bass shaker installed) was much too rigid/firm for my comfort and the back extends up to 43", quite high for a home theater chair.
With the Penumba, I felt the wooden frame in the small of my back. It may just be too cushy in that my body sinks into it too much.
I wish that I could have tried the Dakota, but its back height is just 39", which I have found is not quite enough to offer me complette head rest.
I am ordering the Regents.
I also sat in LazyBoy theater chairs (similar in feel to Connery but lower back heght) and another brand (can't remember company right now) but it too was the more firm home theater type.
Omnia also makes some nice home ttheater seating that has the comfort of a living room recliner but only one of their models has the chaise foot rest (the Regent, Dakota and Connery all have this) which offer full support to the calves rather than a space between the foot rest extension and the chair. That model is their Napoli buat is only 80" overall width whereas the Regent is 90" offering a bit more seating space.
All of the above models are available in power reclining models. I am ordering a Left Arm Facing, a Right Arm Facing and an Armless chair, all of which bracket together to make a three seat couch without any arm rests, much better for snuggling with a loved one.
