Welcome to the seven most outrageous and super high-tech home theater systems in the world. Are you ready for pirates, gold, Borgs and sound systems that will blast your socks off? Here they are.
Jeremy Kipnis is a top music engineer, a lover of classical music and a man who spent $6 million on his home theater. It features the Sony SRX-R110 Digital Cinema Projector that paints the screen with an ultra-rich 4,096 x 2,160 resolution. The sound is projected by an 8.8 channel audio system with vacuum tube and solid-state amplifiers. Sixteen 18-inch subwoofers add unimaginable quality to this system. Other goodies include an 18 by 10-foot Snowmatte Laboratory-Grade Motion Picture Screen, a Theta Digital Generation VIII 32-bit Dual Processors and, of course, a Sony PlayStation for the kids.
Fascinating is the word for this home theater. Walk to the door, and it magically opens just as in the starship Enterprise. This theater looks like the bridge of a starship. At 70-feet in length, this theater can seat all manner of Borgs, Klingons, Cardassians and a fair number of Tribbles. A bar and ready room stand by to offer refreshments during movie breaks. A Kaleidescape hard-drive system with eight servers can bring up more than 4,000 DVDs for viewing. It may be the largest in any home. The theater is decorated with sci-fi props, including a condition red button with flashing red LED lights that can knock the socks off theater guests who aren’t expecting it.
Indiana Jones Theater
The lost Ark is no longer lost because it’s here at the Indiana Jones Theater. This home theater is decorated with flickering torches, a monkey and Indiana Jones’ whip. Guests can watch Jones battle bad guys on an NEC HT 1000 projector. What’s really in that Ark? Only those invited here can take a look.
If a person makes a living visiting bat caves, it makes sense to create a home theater designed after Batman’s cave. It’s filled with high-tech gear and eight motorized recliners to cheer Batman battling the Penguin on a Stewart Filmscreen 110-inch Electriscreen.
Set that parrot on your shoulder and prepare to shiver me timbers at this Pirate-theme home theater. It’s designed to replicate Walt Disney’s movie “The Pirates of the Caribbean.” This $30,000 home theater features murals from the movie, arched walls and a plank to walk for misbehaving theater goers.
Tru Audio surround-sound speakers are featured at the Titanic home theater to enjoy the opulent luxury of Victorian refinement on the sea. More than 1,000 fiber optic lights in the ceiling reflect the night sky as seen from the Titanic.
Italian Golden Theater
Kim Banducci in California built this home theater system to capture her Italian honeymoon in Italy. The elegant colors and real gold trim highlight the majesty of old Italy.
