Jeremy Kipnis’ $6 Million Home Theater

Jeremy Kipnis’ $6 Million Home Theater

By Andrew Liszewski

I really don’t know what to say here. While I’ve recently seen quite a few uniquely themed home theaters making the rounds, they can’t be compared to what Jeremy Kipnis gets to enjoy every night. Over the years he’s worked as a music engineer, producer and even started his own classical music label, but it was a lifelong love for movies and video that inspired him to put together this home theater that I’m sure most audiophiles and technophiles would consider a masterpiece. Audio Video Interiors recently had the opportunity to check it out in person, and were kind enough to provide a partial list of the equipment that went into its construction:

Picture Elements:
Sony SRX-S110 Professional Video Projector (4,096-by-2,160)
Stewart 18-by-10-foot Snowmatte 1.0 Gain Laboratory-Grade Motion Picture Screen

Players and Sources:
Sony BDP-S1 Blu-ray Player
Sony PlayStation 3 Gaming Console
Toshiba HD-XA1 HD DVD Player
JVC HMDH-5U D-VHS Recorder
SATA Drive (72 HDTV Hours Total)
Mark Levinson Nยฐ 51 DVD/CD Media Player
Pioneer HLD-X0 Hi-Vision HDTV MUSE Laserdisc Player

Surround Processing and Decoding:
Theta Digital Generation VIII 32-bit 8x Oversampling Dual Processors (13)

Amplification:
Mark Levinson Nยฐ 33h Amplifiers (2)
McIntosh MC-2102 Amplifiers (30)
Crown Macro Reference Gold Amplifiers (3)

Speakers:
Snell 1800 THX Music & Cinema Reference Subwoofers (16)
Snell THX Music & Cinema Reference Towers (8)
MuRata ES103A Super Tweeters (10)
Snell THX Music & Cinema Reference LCR-2800 Center-Channel Speakers (3)

While Kipnis actually has hopes of selling the home theater to the likes of Lucas, Spielberg or other well-to-do film aficionados, I’m sure he’ll be content knowing that he’s made millions of home theater enthusiasts insanely jealous. For a complete rundown of all the gear used in the Kipnis Studio Standard – Cinema Beta theater, make sure to check out his considerably less-awesome website.

    Oh yeah? Well I have…a 32″ Westinghouse….and a Sony receiver with THREE HDMI ports!
    I feel inadequate now…

  2. Andrew Liszewski says:

    Well you can at least feel superior to me. My Sharp Aquos only has 2 HDMI ports. Which is weird because it also cost me $6 million.

  5. spyro says:

    Did anyone notice the big ass speakers are not connected?
    and for such a high end system i supposed the connectors wouldn’t be these simple red/blach push-to-get-your-wire-in thingy’s…

  6. mcman says:

    I once had a $5,000.00 home theater setup and was fairly happy with it. I sold it all off though.

    If I ever do it again I already know how anal I’ll get so I tend to avoid thinking about it. Thanks allot for reminding me!

  7. The Dentist says:

    It seems excessive to me. Like they say, anything more than a mouthful…. That being said, these pictures got me hard.

  8. Dave says:

    Exacly Spyro. No wires?!?!?
    I suspect this is just a mock up done in the back of a hi-fi shop. Nothing is connected.
    Fake!!

    Personally, my ultimate home theater would be designed to look like the bridge of a Star Destroyer. Unfortunately, I don't think I quite have the $6 million to invest ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. I dont feel comfortable with lot of speakers around me.

  27. Maintaining this system would take many hours monthly, not to mention how difficult it would be to understand and operate the system.
