Hi everyone. I'm still wondering whether I should get fixed seatings or removeable ones for my HT. Please give me the pro's and con's for each selection. Thanks.


Warm regards,

I would get nice home theater chairs if your budget allows. They have tons of styles with massage and electric reclining built in. No 'bolt down' stuff. Big, comfy, fluffy, and relaxing.

Cool! Do you have any particular brand in mind or your typical Lazy-Boy brand will do? Thanks AV, you've been such a big help.

While very nice, I have only set stuff up in my home's family room so I have just used our couch. Hence, I have no solid research that I've done on different theater seats and furniture.

Though a quick Google later:
http://seatsandchairs.com/products.asp?CategoryID=2

There are lots (LOTS!) of options and La-Z-Boy I believe makes some high quality theater specific chairs. We aren't talking steel and thin padding. We are talking about stuff that is more like a single comfortable recliner, except there are 2-3 of them together per row.

If I were to do a dedicated home theater I would try for 2-3 rows of tiered theater seating like the Cinemax B-084 listed on the site I just linked to.

I would do more research though and would check out wherever you plan to purchase from for quality work. I have NO idea how good the company is that I linked to.
