$6 Million Home Theater and Only One Gaming System?


Have you ever wondered what your ultimate home theater system might look like? I know I have, and it includes every gaming system since scientists first got a little light to blink at different intervals. But Jeremy Kipnis, a music engineer/producer, decided to spend $6 million to make his own home theater dream come true. It includes almost everything you could imagine and a few things you might not think of adding, such as a theater-grade projector and screen, 37 different speakers, and players for DVD, Blu-Ray, HD-DVD, VHS, and even Laserdisc. I know what you’re thinking: Finally, I can enjoy Ratatouille the way I’ve always wanted. But one thing that I thought was interesting was that while he was spending all this money, he only decided to install one gaming console — a PS3. Personally, I can’t help thinking just how awesome (and deafening) playing Call of Duty 4 on that thing would be, but he spends money on an HD-DVD player over a Wii or an Xbox 360? To each his own, I guess.

Hey, that PS3 could be his Blue-Ray player.

He should hook that baby up to a nice $6000+ Gaming Computer and ditch the crappy console

Having money doesn’t necessarily mean having good taste :wink:

Iku Tri is right why didnt he use the PS3 as a blu ray player and instead buy a wii or a 360.

eh… I digg the setup but at the same time I don’t. Maybe it’s just a little much. You could probably create the same quality experience for half the money and less space.

I’m not even sure the Wii would work with that screen setup, unless he made a huge ass custom sensor bar and a way bigger room to use it in. Probably more trouble than it’s work.

At this point in time, 360 vs PS3 is becoming more and more of a toss-up. If you like Metal Gear and Final Fantasy, you stay with Sony. If you like Halo and Mass Effect, you stay with MS. Plus I have a feeling that a lot of the console choice has to do with which movie format isn’t dying off.

zeek: it is a toss-up in my opinion. Both systems are about equal value for what you pay. The sad thing is you almost need both to fully enjoy what’s out there. You really can’t choose based on hardware anymore.. you just have to choose what games you want the most.

hmmm – this looks like a system, that is build with money, not knowledge. Maybe there are some absorbers installed so invisible, that i would be impressed if i knew. But this looks like a homecinema where a seller wanted to make bucks instead of a perfect experience. This doesn´t even looks cosy – just loud.

Not that i won´t like to have this at home instead of my little hc (which is more like 6000$ instead of 6000000$ ) – but i doubt, that there are many girls out there i could persuade to create a living room like this. :D

Would have integrated more console though.

I dig that the guy uses hd dvd on his setup, but what would crysis look like on this setup is frighteningly cool, btw I think he should’ve used a pc on this set up with tri-sli since money doesn’t matter :razz:

Meh! I think that setup is fake. It’s probably in the back of a shop or, at some show.

No wires!!!

Its because PS3 is the best and will rule all console from now on. PPL are just jelous cuz there are trying to convince there selves xbox or wii is better but the truth os PS3 is better

No Wires ??? Of course the wires aren’t visible. I should hope that the wires are well hidden for 6 $million$. Yeesh ! :roll:
