    they spent all that money and still left all their movies in the dvd cases on the wall where they can rattle and wreck your sound.

    For 6 BIG ones I think I'd have a system that would look a whole lot better not as cluttered, and have a nice car. Get outta here with that holy hell. Nice screen though.

    I respect anyone who maxes it out and follows their dream, but... geez.

    Sure seems to me like one would bounce off the wall of diminishing returns well before $6m.

    I mean... for a mere $2m, you can build a custom-designed addition to your house that's intended from the blank sheet of paper as a peak-performance audio space, sound isolated from the outside world, and with acoustics that will make angels weep, and then fill it with really top-notch equipment.

    Or get a good start on your own IMAX theater.

    and then have $4m to spend on... other stuff.

    It's a shame that the sound system/equipment is the focal point rather than the screen itself.

    I'd rather have one like this;
