Jeremy Kipnis’ $6 Million Home Theater

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.

  1. 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…

  2. 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!

  3. 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 😉

  5. Not enough speakers!! I need more… The price is relative – If I make 6 mil in a couple of months then this is worth the price.. Nice System Jeremy!

  6. too bad, no lighting info in this post. But i like how you configure all speakers & sub surrounding.
    Overall you did a great job here ..congratz
