Richard, imho a home theater should be snack friendly. I realize that the Romans loved to lounge and munch, but I personally find upright seating better for eating popcorn, Raisinets, etc. And definitely better for imbibing Mug Root Beer (caffeine free), Aquafina, etc. On Tuesday, January

Thanks, Share, now that we've got the fundamentals down, we can get to the details. I went to Haverty's Online and designed this chair for the viewing room - that pretty much says it all. Maybe I should design a love seat for me and Rita. Now that's better! [image: Inline image 1] On Tue, Jan

A TayVay and DayVayDay player? You're so retro Richard. You need a good panel HD set, a Blu-Ray player with wifi and maybe a Chromecast or a Roku box. But then don't forget the surround system with good speakers. I have a set of Klipsch speakers. Oh and you have to have a house so the

LOL and good point noozguru about the snoozability of comfy chairs. Maybe one could keep the ambient room temperature low. That'll keep everyone awake! On Tuesday, January 28, 2014 11:04 AM, Bhairitu noozg...@sbcglobal.net wrote:   A TayVay and DayVayDay player?  You're so retro Richard.

15 years ago a home theater was the domain of the yuppies and uber rich. Nowadays anyone can afford a home theater especially if you cut the cable so you aren't paying those exorbitant monthly cable TV fees. Without that in a few months you've paid off all that gear. But you're an old fart,
