So you've finally put together your dream home theater. The screen is just perfect, the components come together nicely, and you're all ready to settle in for that Rocky marathon this weekend. If only you could enjoy it all from the comfort of your favorite La-Z-Boy recliner. Say no more, my friend. La-Z-Boy has answered your prayers with their new Home Theater Collection. Seven pieces comprise the new Matinee group: right and left one-arm recliners; right and left wedges with armless recliners; a two-arm recliner; a console with a storage drawer; and a standalone wedge. You can customize the recliners with La-Z-Boy's power recline system, which lets you recline or extend to virtually any position. La-Z-Boy says that each cushion is placed at a 15-degree angle and positioned so that the seat back won't block the surround sound. The suggested retail price of the dividing furniture pieces (including the wedge and console) ranges from $299 in fabric to $799 in leather. Prices for the seating furniture pieces (including the one- and two-arm recliners) range from $599 in fabric to $1,899 in leather with the power reclining option.
How often do you have the chance to be part of something truly unique? Fifty lucky people will have that opportunity with Fosgate Audionics' new FAP V1 vacuum-tube surround processor. The company will sell only 50 units, and each will be hand numbered and signed by Jim Fosgate. The FAP V1 features eight analog inputs to connect a DVD-Audio or SACD player. The multichannel analog signal bypasses the FAP V1's processor, sending the signal directly to the volume control. The unit's 7.1-channel loopthrough lets you continue to use your digital pre/pro and the tube preamp stage for the main volume control point. The FAP V1 measures 10.5 inches high by 21 wide by 16 deep and weighs 45 pounds. The one-of-a-kind unit is available for $13,000.
