Through a pure chance meeting of the friend of a friend, I got invited to this guy’s house. This is just plain unbelievable. He told me it had been written up in the Gramophone blog and I found it. I believe he said the dimensions are 20 something x 33 feet with 16 foot high ceiling. It’s a true 4K system.

Still better than my 42.

I am trying to find this pic of $100,000 worth of Mcintosh amps with oval woofers, it's crazy and beautiful.

Ok, I gotta ask, any idea what that entire home theater cost?

Yeah, little extravagant for me. I’m fine with the projector off my neighbors house giving a nice clear 35’ screen and a Sony Bluetooth speaker for sound. Haha

I don’t know the cost of the whole theater but I heard him say he spent $125,000 on the sound system. Several of the decor items were custom made, the acoustic fabric wall panels that look like stone probably cost a bundle. He said he has a total of 54 speakers throughout the house. A Kaleidoscope carousel houses about 300 of his most popular titles (over 5,000 CDs, DVDs and BluRays. I had never heard of the speakers described (Wisdom) but they look expensive. I think he said there were 17 concealed speakers in the theater, 4 of them subwoofers. We watched Apollo 13 and they can deliver. It’s basically configured as a Dolby Atmos system.

When he was having the house built, he specified 12 foot ceilings for the basement, then had them dig down another 4 feet to get the ceiling height he wanted. He said he designed the rough layout of the theater first and they built the house on top of it. The one wall that is not a foundation wall is 10” think concrete and the bar at the back is 15 feet long, solid concrete. He said they lifted it into place with a crane. I can’t imagine why it was done that way instead of just pouring or forming it on site. He said it is something he has wanted for over 30 years.

Found some info on the speakers......“This meant in-wall and on-wall speakers that could hang with a Wilson or 800 Series Bowers & Wilkins, but didn't inspire a wife to make that first call to a divorce attorney. Wisdom stayed true to its roots with very elaborate trade- and consumer-show demonstrations that wowed. In-walls and on-walls aren't supposed to sound that good, people said. What also wowed was the price tag of products like Wisdom Audio's LS4 or Sage Series, which started in the low $10,000s and could top out at over $100,000 for larger, more robust systems.”
