A $6 Million Home Theater

A $6 Million Home Theater

The next best thing to buying your local cineplex might be this creation by Kipnis-Studios.com

Dubbed the Kipnis Studio Standard, this home theater configuration was designed to feature the very best audiophile equipment.  Jeremy Kipnis, the creator of this home theater extravaganza hopes wealthy movie industry professionals, actors, directors, and producers will soon be lining up to commission him to custom-design and build a KSS for them.

The system features an ultra-high resolution (4,096 x 2,160) picture from the Sony SRX-R110 Digital Cinema Projector, with four times the resolution of a 1080p image (the highest resolution currently available for plasma tv’s.)

The 8.8 channel audio system is features a well-balanced combination of audiophile solid-state and vacuum-tube amplifiers. The KSS is astonishing in the way it delivers power, but with 11,315 very high-quality watts on tap, that’s hardly surprising. The 8.8 channel system uses 16 18-inch subwoofers!  16!  Wow.
