That is a decent way to see how well constructed they are. None of the Best Buy Magnolia rooms in my area have Octane chairs on display so I can't find one to sit in.
Not yet. 8 weeks is on the 25th, so I am hopeful I will hear something soon. The room is done, just waiting for these!

I just ordered a row of 4 Octane Dream HRs w/ middle loveseat in black leather.
Sales rep said 4 weeks, sales order says 4-6.
FYI, the stock chairs appear to be "top grain/leather match," which means basically it's real leather where your body touches, vinyl everywhere else. You can order it in all leather, but your wait time shoots way up, as does the price.

I'm very nervous ordering site unseen, but I did find a BB about an hour's drive away that had the Turbos in the showroom, and while they had obviously taken a lot of abuse, they were comfy, and received Wife Approval, so I pulled the trigger on the Dreams, thinking they can't be any worse, and maybe they'll be better.

Will report back when they arrive, which should hopefully be around Thanksgiving.

Update: Allegedly shipping out to me the week of 11/6.

Bustamelon: Looks like we are both waiting on the same seats; I hope we like them!

I hope so too! Although anything is better than the Ikea chair I've been sitting in.

Received my shipping notice. They are scheduled to hit my area on 11/10. Looks like it will be close to the 10 week estimate.

I was told my seats arrive in an Atlanta warehouse today or tomorrow, then "expedited" to me in Maryland. I am hopeful that by the end of next week I will have them. But as of now, no shipping notice, nor has my payment card been charged.

Mine arrived (Minneapolis) and are ready for delivery but I'm not ready for them! Glad I didn't pay for white glove as I have no where to put them right now. I guess I'll clear some space in the garage. I'm a couple weeks out from carpet but once I get that I'll get them down there and let people know what I think. Curious to hear about the others!

Chairs (FLEX HR) arrived today. I took pictures with my tablet and attached so quality not too great. Chairs are very nice. Leather is great with a slight sheen. Sitching looks perfect. Chairs are sturdy and don't squeak. They are very supportive yet hold you, so you're nice and comfortable. My wife's first comments included "they look great", "the seat is higher than I expected", and "love the powered headrest". I think these chairs are a great purchase. Don't mind the room, still putting it back together from our major remodeling effort.

Lenny,

Thanks for the update, chairs look great! Still looking for feedback on the Dream HR as that is my first choice, keep us updated after you get a chance to get comfy in your new seats.

Just got the email saying my chairs have been processed for shipping.
Tracking info shows arriving at regional warehouse on Friday.
Any ideas what that means for delivery time? Will I hear from the white glove guys only after they have picked up the package? Is it possible I might have them Friday?

Great to see your chairs arrived! The chairs are packed with the back laying on the base between the arms. There is very little protection between the box and the chairs, so be careful. Assembly took me about 5 minutes per chair to open and connect - very easy. Can't wait to hear your impressions.

Sleep is overated! Open those boxes and show us some pics!!! I can't wait to see an actual owners impression of the dream hr, Lenny's Flex HR look great and sound comfortable.

Looking forward to your thoughts, congrats on your new chairs

I love my new seats, the Octane Dream HR!

Install:

Unbox and install was easy, just clip the upper half of the seat into the lower half and connect the head rest cables. No tools needed. Takes two people to safely move each lower half of the seat; the upper half one person.

The knubs on the bottom of the seat frame that contact the ground are hard plastic. Because I have laminate floors, I used rubber, anti-skid pads between the floor and the seat. They don't skid at all. Also, each chair is separate, there is no bracket connecting them together. You can buy such a bracket from your Octane vendor. I considered making my own bracket and connecting them together so they don't move. I rejected that idea because after some testing (jumping into the seat etc.) they don't move at all.

Fit and Finish:

Overall, well built seats. I only noted a few minor flaws: The stitching on one of the arm rest lids had about an inch of excess thread, no big deal. One of the hinges on the arm rest lid does not allow the lid to close completely (in the pictures it is the one closest to the wall). On inspection, one of the hinge screws snapped off or was never installed, hard to say. The tray tables do not fit into the armrest storage containers with there mounting pins install. I see why because the armrest storage just isn't wide enough (once the pin is unscrewed, they fit fine). BTW, the finish on the black tray table is that nice soft touch plastic would find in the interior of a BMW or VW.

Comfort:

Far exceeded my expectations. Between firm and soft, these would be firm (at least after 2 hours of seat time!). If you like a squishy seat, not for you. I am 6 ft, 185 lbs and these fit me perfectly, especial in terms of how long the seat is when fully reclined. THE BEST FEATURE IS THE POWER HEADREST. I would have regretted buying a seat without out. To prove it to myself, I did the following test: Sit in the chair and fully recline and see where my eyes pointed. Well, with the headrest fully collapsed in the chair back my eyes point to where the ceiling and screen wall meet - not a good angle. Then you move the headrest, and it aligns your eyes perfectly with the screen. Without that feature, I'd have to use a loose pillow or tacky saddlebag style head pillow that drapes over the chair back (Octane sells them) - no good.

Summary:

Worth the wait, incredible value, and would buy again without hesitation.

Now for the pictures!

P.S. If anyone has any questions about these, please ask!

Looks great! Thanks for taking the time.
I have just a couple quick questions.
1. What color are these chairs? Maybe it's just the lighting, but they look grey or light brown in the pics.
2. How long are the power cords, and, if I have a row of 4 of these, and placed a power strip just behind the first one, for example, would the power cord for the last chair reach the power strip?

Thanks again. I'm really glad to hear that they are comfortable, and firm, and especially happy to hear that my interest in the headrest feature was not without merit. The lack of such a feature has pretty much kept me from using the recline feature in my current (analog) seating. Enjoy!

Sorry to take this off topic, seats looks awesome by the way , but can you tell me what you are using for your high top bar behind the seats? I was thinking of building one and drywalling it etc, but this approach is WAY easier!

Color: They are black. It could be the lighting, there are lights right above that row. Also, because of the textured, pebble grain leather, they have a matte finish. Which, I note, appears to be a subtle difference from the Flex HR, which appears to be a smooth leather. Am I correct there?

Cord Length: I did the same setup you suggested (but with three chairs) and the cord length was sufficient, with some to spare. I think it would be very close with four seats, especially considering the added length of the armrests. Worst case, you could have a short jumper cable.

I had the same thought you did, then worked up what I made. I'll be posting a theater build shortly with some more pictures. But until then, I made the bar countertop with an Ikea slab, restaurant table legs, and a box steel beam to support the span. Very solid, no wobbles or bows in the middle.

Counter: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70335655/ I ripped it down to 18 inches, then cut in the curve to make it easier to access.

Legs: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Box Steel Beam: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

About $210 all in. 96 inches long, 44 inches high, 18 inches wide.

(Since the picture was taken, I've moved the left leg further to the edge to allow for more legroom)

Excellent work. Thanks for sharing how you did it. I took the same approach with an Ikea countertop for my home office desk. Only problem is shipping with them to my area is typically crazy and the closest store to me is in Memphis 3 1/2 hours away.

Yes, the Flex HR are a smooth leather with a slight sheen. I was happy to see that, as we preferred that look over a stronger pebble/matte look. I was afraid the threading was going to be white, but it blends well.

I hadn't even considered the grain of the leather when ordering! I am pleasantly surprised in the pebbled, matte grain. It reminds me of automotive seating. Looks like we've revealed some further detail about these new seats that folks should consider when ordering.

I wonder if its just a manufacturing lot difference? I was thinking of ordering the loveseat configuration now that I've seen the seats. I guess I can ask before ordering.
