I sold both of my rows of Cinematech seats and purchased two matching rows of Fortress Seats. Funny story, got them for a TV producer in Santa Barbara who did shows like Magnum P.I., Airwolf, CSI. The seats weren't what he wanted when they were delivered so he went with something different and I picked them up. The first row of my old seats went in a U-haul and down to So. Cal with us where another member met us to buy them. We then went and picked up these 9 chairs from a very nice home in Montecito. It was interesting getting them apart, into the U-haul, and back to Sacramento. Took us a few nights to carry them up to the theater on the second floor.
All the seats are motorized, nice step up. I plan to build a riser for the back row soon. And I may order a new back for one chair with less lumbar support per my wife's preference.
The previously mentioned projector upgrade was completed, but I was hesitant to trust the ceiling mount with it at first. Everything is fine now, but you can see what steps I went through to make sure it stayed up all night.
Last change, but actually the first one I made was to the Marantz 7702 mkII. I wanted something I was sure would pass 4k with HDR in place so made the step up. Sold my original 7702 to a fried for a break even on that part.
I did also sell off my Panasonic AE8000 to cover some of the cost of the new projector. Now I just need to spend some time calibrating the picture.
