The $3.4 million In-house Cinema grabs HE’s prestigious accolade
We have seen some incredible home theater set-ups, including the awesome Death Star Theater, Titanic home theater, Star Trek home theater, Indiana Jones-themed home theater, and the Goldmund Media Room. Now, let’s take a look at the In-house cinema that grabbed the Home Entertainment’s ‘Installation of the Year’ accolade. The gaudy set-up at a house in Austin, Texas touts 24-karat gold gilding dnetails, hand embroidered fabric seats and genuine antique candle holders. The magnificent CAT/MBX speaker system hides behind fabric grilles chosen to pass sound well and to complement the decor. They have used the Crestron touchscreen to bring down the lights and fire up the home theater system. The theater hosts an astounding 12-inch 24 subwoofers. There are gorgeous crimson curtains to each side of the screen.
The 3-feet long Runco MBX-1 projector weighs nearly 200 pounds and is capable of producing images as large as 40 feet wide. There are thirty-eight distinct audio zones, with the cheapest speakers costing $2000 per pair. The main equipment cabinet is concealed behind a set of curtains in the back right corner and stores the brains of the home theater system – the multi-room audio system, and the home automation system-five racks of gear, all cooled by 24,000 BTUs of air conditioning.
Such an exceptional home theater set up certainly asks for huge bucks. The cost of all this unblemished gadgetry sits at a cool $3.4 million.
