Jeremy Kipnis’ $6 Million Home Theater

Jeremy Kipnis' Home Theater (Images courtesy Audio Video Interiors)
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 N° 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 N° 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…

  • Andrew Liszewski

    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.

    So THAT was the purpose of Stonehenge!

  • AndroidReplica

    I wonder what the giant silver fish does?

  • spyro

    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…

  • mcman

    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!

  • The Dentist

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

  • Dave

    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 ;)

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