We are not worthy...
wow that is some home cinema
Looks like one of Pat Butcher's ear rings tbh
Nice equipment but it would appear the owner has had a tastectomy
Way OTT for me I'm afraid...
not to my taste, but a quality job
A man with tooooooooooo much money in his hands... impressive all the same(although like other not my cup of tea!!).
Urgh TASTE? the starwars one is much better......
Who did the install? Carmella Soprano? I would have expected AMX/Crestron control not a Marantz pronto clone, interior stage designer gone mad?
(sorry tony )
A stunning triumph...of money over taste!
You better watch out horny, if tony reads this thread you will be swimming with the fishes!!!
He features on this site:
Where you will find a lot of people with fantastic designs and way too much money!
The most impressive thing (only IMO) about Mr Jenkins HC is his actual web site itself and how comprehensive it is.
The HC itself is a little too OTT for me personally, but you can't knock a guy who had a vision and spent that kind of time/money realising it
My favourite BTW is "The Bridge Theatre" Now there is a loon and no mistake
i generally dont visit sites like that as i then really really hate those people
ive only ever seen 2 ive ever liked a star wars one which was like WOW and a sort of space shuttle one
I bet you've got a bed shaped like a racing car with matching bedspread
Yup, nice toys but bad taste.....
Actor with deep voice:-
Carlsberg don't do home cinema - but if they did it would probably be the best home cinema in the world
Hi Ryan, hope someone can help you with your query. I have noticed you've cross posted this to at least two other forums (one of which being the DLP/LCD projector forum which is probably the most appropriate). Just for info it's against forum rules to cross post to more than one forum...PJ
Art from AVS has an pretty amazing set up.
Twin Stack Sony G90's Now that's what I call ultimate
From the FAQ on Steve Jenkins Site:
Q. Yuck! That's so tacky, over the top, and cheesy!
A. Even though that's not really a question, I'll respond by saying "Yeah! Of course it is!" This isn't meant to be a room that you live in, or sleep in, or work in. The rest of the house can be decorated tastefully - but the whole intent of this room was to be "over the top" in a "Las Vegas meets old-style movie palace" kind of way. It's sensory overload by design. Some people prefer simple, muted, purely functional designs for their home theaters. And that's just great for them. I wanted something crazy, not tasteful. I wanted a room where my friends would walk in, start laughing, and say "Dude - you are NUTS!" And that's pretty much the reaction I get.
definately mission accomplished!
So at least he *knows* its tacky
Looks like he wanted it that way...
as long as it does what he wants it to do, and works well, thats all that matters
I guess from the reaction that most people would rather have the tedious IKEA look from the guys media closet.
If I was building a dedicated room I'd have one that looked like the classic theatres from the early 20th century, the ones that have almost all been demolished now to be replaced by those very attractive multiplex thingys.
I found this site the other day http://www.digital16-9.com full of some more 'achievable' designs and a few right dodgy ones too.
It's like a Baz Luhrmann nightmare come to life - which is fine, I guess, but it's just not for me. And I'm not sure about calling the bit where you store your kit a "Media Closet". I think I'm a bit too terminally self-conscious to use that phrase in polite conversation.
Plus, that room reminds me of the old Opera House theatre, in my home town Scarborough, which really went for the red brocade glamour big-time and was left to fall into rotten disrepair. Such sad memories...
I've been called a lot of things but never a "loon". Sorry if my theater isn't to your liking.
GreigHN, hats off to you sir, A superb and completely different idea that is what YOU wanted. Got to admire it!
I've been a trek fan for years and take my hat off to you also greighn, a truly unique HC. Fantastic Job
Yep - great job!
I've loved Trek since I was a kid in the 60s and I still think TOS is great fun to watch. It would be like a nostalgia trip every time I walked in there. Fantastic.
I did say it was my favourite , my loon comment was one of admiration and dedication sorry if it didn't come across that way.
Beam me up Scottie
jesus christ i wonder how much that cost to build, i was more interested in the equipment he used rather than the design.
Personally the whole roman/las vegas thing is not my cup of tea
Tell you how they can afford to do it... it doesn't look to me like anyone buys discs! Where's the collections???
