I'm glad they have the "Solar Cells support all the home theatre Low Voltage Led Light illumination. "


That will sure make an impact *sarcasm* on the 11,000 watt system.

Do they even use 23 subwoofers at an actual full sized commercial theater? This setup seems like a bit of overkill, but then again, I wouldn't expect anything less when someone wants to blow a million dollars.

Something doesn't feel right when I read 'Million dollar' and 'Control4' in the same article.


Great room none the less

Is it just me or is anyone else unimpressed? A million dollars for a theater that seats 5 people? A room that small doesn't need anywhere near that much speaker or wattage. Although I guess I will probably never have a million dollars laying around that I don't know what to do with.

I'm the one who "went black and can never turn back". I mean color of the walls and ceiling


I doubt that that shiny "unique acoustical and eco-friendly natural wood sound treatment ideal for the room." will provide reasonable sound absorption.


Is it just my impression that almost every single super-duper home theaters shown here are optimized for everithing but the top video and audio performance?

I'm sure I could put together something much better for 1/10 the price.

I sure hope you can turn the backlights on all the McIntosh equipment off. That would be insanely distracting.

All that audio/video gear and no antenna. I guess if he can afford to blow a million on it, I guess he doesn't mind paying extra to get local channels over cable or sat in substandard quality (with no subchannels)

Well I use twenty four 15's and I'm about to add a "sub-subwoofer" that will be a lot bigger than that so I can't say anything.


I'm curious about the line array. Looks like the mid/tweeter section is curved... CBT? Are they using any shading? That is, are they attenuating the drivers incrementally toward the ends of the array?


Edit: Looking on the McIntosh site I see it appears to be a straight line array. That can work, my mains are straight but with Hann Shading. A future rev will be a curved CBT however.

Yes, that is the benefit of DIY! I have about 1/20 that price in mine including the eleven Berkline recliners, projector etc. and I wouldn't trade with him even.

So, six 10" woofers, 64 2" drivers, and 40 3/4" tweeters in each of the front speakers? How can that possibly sound good?

obviously you're not familiar with line arrays. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line_array
