Lottery-sized Home Theater


Let’s say I win the lottery. Not just a little jackpot, but a really big one. If that happens, this is the home theater I might want to put in my mansion. It costs about $6 million and includes a gigantic, Snowmatte laboratory-grade screen, Sony ultra-high-resolution (4,096-by-2,160) SRX-S110 digital projector, a 8.8-channel audio system with THREE center-channel speakers, SIXTEEN 18-inch Snell Subs, and the list goes on and on. In the end, the setup powers 11,315 high-quality watts in the room designed for the sole purpose of being the ultimate home theater. Is it overkill? Heck yes, but who’s going to judge you when it’s your cash?

  1. My home theater is adorned with a lovely mustard colored chair from 1960-70’s, a walmart purchased futon and old carpet. I do have a really nice bar that my wife and I made ourselves and it does look nice, but there is the awesome Home Theater PC there :)

    When I first saw this, I was reminded that no matter how much money you have, there’s always a way to have gadget envy.

  2. Y’know, unless he had an audio engineer design that system, he’s going to lose all his channel seperation from his movies and it’ll just sound like a very loud wall of sound, instead of an immersive movie experience. The floor looks like it’s hardwood, too, which would just make it worse. So while this LOOKS impressive, it’s kind of a huge waste of money, and I’m not envious at all.
    Related story: I know someone who came into some money through inheritance, and they built a brand new house with a dedicated home theater room. Of course, since he insisted on doing it himself, his a/v rack is a literal wooden rack in the middle of the room, the projector isn’t the optimal distance from the screen, and he refuses to get a Harmony with RF to control the lights, so he has a set of four or five remotes duct taped together (seriously). So, the lesson here is, money definitely does not buy common sense. See fish table in above picture for confirmation of this.

  3. Okay, after reviewing the full article, it looks like the guy IS an audio engineer, so I suppose he’s got that going for him. It’s still outrageously silly, though. Also, what’s the point of having a home theater if there’s only three seats? Plus, scratch my fish comment from earlier, it’s apparently the sub-thing from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
