Jeremy Kipnis Amazing $6,000,000 Home Theater

I can say that I’ve saw a lot of home theaters, but nothing can’t be compared to what Jeremy Kipnis $6,000,000 ultimate home theater. I know that there’s simply nothing quite like watching your favorite movie or sport event on a huge movie palace screen with fantastic wall-to-wall sound, and if you are really, really serious about the quality of both the picture and sound you produce and experience on a daily basis, then you need to see the Kipnis Studio Standard Experience, also known as “The Greatest Show on Earth”. I don’t really know what to actually say about this amazing home theater, a big waste of money or a true piece of art, but I inclined to think that $6,000,000 is way to much for a home theater, with all those money you can buy a a few Ferrari’s, a nice home, and many more. Now let’s see a few details that make this home theater so amazing …

  • Ultra-high resolution (4,096 x 2,160) picture from the Sony SRX-R110 Digital Cinema Projector
  • 8.8 channel audio system is fed by a well-balanced combination of audiophile solid-state and vacuum-tube amplifiers.
  • The 8.8 channel system uses sixteen 18-inch subwoofers

    isn’t it amazing the lengh we go to in order to get something to sound ‘like the real thing’? … ‘surround sound’

    it all looks beautiful!

    $6M is a lot to pay for “the real thing” don’t you think?

    It’s fuuny to think that $6M was spent to exprience the “real” thing. Especialy because the pic shows Rattatulie playing on the screen and that actually never happened in real life. It’s a cartoon. So no amount of money can make it sound like the real thing. :) Would love to watch the BLOB on that sucker!!! or Animal Kingdom!!!

    Yea, actually I can’t be too impressed. The Sony SRX-S110 is nice, but just like everything else it’s obsolete.

    http://www.aboutprojectors.com/news/2006/10/25/sony-srx-r220-large-venue-cinema-projector/

    I enjoy the quality of projectors. I have a nice DLP system at home, but i’d never pay over $100,000 for one. That’s just…well, kinda silly. It’s a nice 6 million dollar setup, but I wouldn’t go as far as to call it the best.

    It cant be hidden, that amount of wattage cant travel through a long wire if you want a clean sound. it needs to be where there can be no interference and and short as possible. I’m pretty sure thats his final setup.

    doubtingthomas,

    That is a keen eye that cannot tell a real photo from a 3D rendering. Thank you for the many compliments, all the same – BUT!

    damn it’s cool… but…. Why only spend 6 million on a setup for 3 persons….? hmm… I am working in a cinema, and in our smallest cinemaroom, we have 40 persons, and it’s nearly at the same size as the cinema obove…! so 3 seats only? no… 2 millions pr. seat….

  15. December 20, 2008

    christoffer,

    My Kipnis Studio Standard designs are custom and hand-tailored to the clients requirements. In the case of my own Ciné Beta, the purpose is to allow a small number of people (up to 28) to actually be completely immersed in the presentation. The 8.8 surround sound system I have pioneered works particularly well in the 3,650 Square Foot Idealized Reverse Trapagon.

    The results, as qualified by a slew of award winning professionals, speak for themselves:

    If you expect to truly fool the senses entirely, you must create each system from the ground up!

    Where are you located and what kind of screening rooms do you attend regularly?

    Cheers -

    Hey.
    I am located in Denmark. I agree in, that you have to build up a custom created and calibrated system for every single screening to get the best experience. As told before, I works in a cinema. Our sound systems is created to fit the size of the room best and to give the best experience depending on the count of seats. Our biggest Screeningroom can contain 404 people, and is THX certified. But i am sure, that the sound quality and the experience is way much better in your cinema, because of the detailed system and speaker setup.

    and u cant even lie down cuz the fcking couch is curved!!

  21. October 22, 2009

    Actually, the Arizona Leather couch (variously known as the ugly sofa) is large enough to seat six and certainly allows for several people to lie down simultaneously, and which is most comfortable to sleep on, in fact. But this KSS Screening room itself can alternately be outfitted with up to 30 standard plush theater seats within a few hours. Each seat offers unparalleled visual fidelity and sonic immersion – acting like a time machine to bring the viewer into the past (or future) of the movie or TV’s narrative. And video game tournaments are unbelievably involving! You just won’t believe how great your favorite PS3, XBOX 360, and Wii can be until you’ve experienced them on a 10′ tall by 24′ wide viewing screen accompanied by our new 12.12 surround sound!

    Haha…here I was worrying about maybe spending $20k on my home theater. $6M? Wow. I normally never comment on how people spend their money, but this does seem just a wee bit over-the-top and extravagent. I love technology and this is pretty cool, but I doubt I would spend this kind of money, even if I had it. I mean, I have been in a friends home theater that cost him a little over $100k and I thought that was pretty sweet. Oh well, to each their own I guess.

    I just don’t get it. Amplifiers in front of ultra-high-end speakers, side walls made of what looks like DVD’s, once you’ve seen the classics, you’re pretty much re-watching everything.

    And the amount of heat these amps must generate?? Gee-Whiz… Not the place I’d like to relax in, put my feet up and eat popcorn. Sorry.

    I’m a sucker for home theater, but I’ve drooled much more over much modest setups. For this one I keep my saliva to myself. Definite Plonk.

    February 10, 2010

    For less than 20,000 US, I could set you up with something that will knock your sock off every time, impress your friends, and even your wife for having a Home Theater that does NOT burn your budget, but still produces the effect intended by the movie makers. FULLHD, Three subwoofers, superb sound, easy to use system with dedicated PC, PS3, Blu-Ray, name it. And you’ll be lauging at anyone who spent anything more than you to have it setup by so-called experts…

    The idea here os to be able to do more with less, keep the heat out of the room, and keep it simple, yet beautiful, clear and loud.
    This 6,000,000$ setup is a waste of perfectly good components in an orverkill setup to which you’ll eventually find flaws… Imagine, every two weeks, one of your 132 components gives in!… hahaha There you go! Time to fix, AGAIN!!! :)

  26. February 10, 2010

    Erik -

    I Agree — You just don’t get it!

    I design and build Custom Ultimate Home Theaters (and Professional A/V Mastering Suites) that are very much like Formula 1 racers for those who already own their own top-end racing tracks (Home with Complete A/V Media Library).

    These multi-award winning Ultimate Home Theaters, which I define as the Kipnis Studio Standard (KSS), offer a level of picture and sound immersion that not even an IMAX or Private Hollywood Screening Facility can begin to touch. Interior design and budget are different for each client, but picture and sound quality are unmatched, and one’s complete A/V library is instantly available at the “Touch of a Button”.

    The experience of watching a First Run Film, TV Show, Live Sporting Event, listening to your favorite Music, or even playing a Video Game (in 3D, if you prefer) is “Like You’re There!” My theater designs create a multi-media spiritual awakening of the highest order from any electronic A/V media thus far created.

    What you are talking about is (at best) a Toyota Prius, designed to be driven to and from work or the supermarket – and we now know exactly what happens when Toyota (or any other automobile manufacturer) cuts corners during design and production, trying to meet a specific price point. Disaster on a profound level!!!

    So instead of boasting and speculating about what you “could set up”, I encourage interested parties to come and immerse themselves totally in their favorite audio and video entertainment … better and more authentically than you will experience anywhere else in the world!

    Please contact me (via email) to schedule an appointment.

    Cheers, and many thanks for looking -

    Still nothing said about how often your system would need something fixed, replaced, teaked, cleaned, refoamed, changed, replugged, dusted, I can think of a few others :) And, how many hours does your lamp last, again? Mine is 3000. Yours?

    This would be a needy setup, with a dedicated person just to maintain it on a daily basis. Sell it like that, and I’ll propose it to the next billionaire I see on the street.

    Gee, I wonder how many people I’ve seen driving around in a formula one today. Gee I wonder how many people actually drive it WHEN they have one :)

    Compare what I can set up to a Prius if you will. I would probably have to pull your F1 to the next gaz station. (Well, you opened the door…)

    Sadly though, this would be considered a nice “let’s see how far one could take it” and would reside like a jewel in a very expansive, empty house, nothing more than something to brag about. You seem to own one and yet, you’re wasting your time answering to my silly little comment (so you’d think…) Aside from being a good publicity stunt (and YES, I do get it!), I see no reason to drool, still.

    Overkill. Period.

    I take back my earlier statement. I thought that it was fake because I would have never believed that anyone would buy such a hodge-podge of wires and equipment for that much money. I thought just because of the absolute absurdity of the amount of money it “HAD” to be an internet hoax.

    I watched a video somewhere that showed this theater room in action. I retract my earlier statement that this isn’t real. I am now convinced it is real, and not a computer generated image. I also now believe more than ever that a fool and his money are soon parted.

    I recently saw a study about “cheap wine” vs “fine wine” where they had the worlds best wine “experts” do a blind taste testing with wines covering the whole range of prices. The x-spurts couldn’t EVEN tell the difference, thus proving that the expensive wines had little if any additional real value over the cheaper wines. They also did this with champagnes – with the same results.

    When I purchased my first “real” stereo system, which cost me about $3500, and I sat down to listen to it with my father, he told me something that I will always remember. “It sounds very good, but it doesn’t sound $3200 better than my $300 Sony system. It wasn’t worth it to him to pay the extra money, because he was a value shopper, and the small improvement in sound quality didn’t offer hime enough additional value to justify the price.

    Sure this might be the “BEST” system ever, but I agree with Erik. You would have to be an idiot to spend $6,000,000 to receive the miniscule additional value that this system offers. It might sound great, but it looks like crap and is a nightmare regarding the practicality for day to day use.

    I have a nice theater in my house. Many people have told me they can’t believe how awesome it is. It didn’t cost $6mil, but to listen to most people go on and on about it, it is the “coolest” thing they have ever seen (Most of my friends aren’t gajilionaires).

    The room is 30′x 25′ and I have 3 rows x 4 seats (12 Total) of beautiful black leather theater recliners in a stadium configuration with perfect eyelines to a 72″ x 129″ screen projected from a panasonic projector. Sound is from an onkyo sound system with one sub (I do want to upgrade to 2 JBL subs soon), with a panasonic bluray player. The sound system has been tuned so that when you are watching a movie, the levels immerse you in the sound and action (I know it can’t be as loud or immersive as the $6mil system) but it is so fine (to me) that it makes me feel like I am there when I watch action movies, and I can understand all of the nuances of the dialog, but it doesn’t have to be so loud that you can’t have a conversation with others in the theater. Sometimes when I watch it I actually cry because it is so awesome :)

    My total cost (excluding the cost of the room) is under $7500. I decided to start out as inexpensively as possible, and gradually improve the theater as needed to take advantage of the gradual decreases in the price of equipment (until I one-day achieved perfection). I didn’t want to buy a $50,000 projector only to have it be obsolete 2yrs later (and at a street price of $6500).

    I hope your clients enjoy their theater $5,992,500 more than I am enjoying mine but I don’t see how there is that much additional value.

    One final thing… If a person buys your system for $6mil, the person laughing all of the way to the bank is you, because your margins have got to be astronomical. I don’t think I can even imagine the total cost of all of the bits and pieces that make up all of your equipment could even approach $1mil. I am a home builder, and for me to compare myself to what you do, it would be like me selling someone a house for $6mil that it cost me $800,000 to build just because the person wants to be able to say they spent $6mil on their house.

    I guess as someone famous once said “THERE IS A SUCKER BORN EVERY MINUTE”……

    Gooday!

    Oh, and I am commenting on this specific setup, not what you are able to design and well-known for.

    I am very much in-tune with your desire to give the best experience to your clients, and your clients must be filthy rich ones… Your reputation is extraodinary and I respect it.

    My point is that your system is so heavily loaded that in this case the result is probably LESS than the sum of its parts. I am certain many agree with me. There is a lot of steps below that system that would still be considered “the real thing” and I’m sure many setups of yours are considered like that and cost much less.

    In my own down-to-earth world, with what I have of experience and previous setups, my first goal has always been to give the client an unforgettable experience and I did it many times, for much less. For you to compare it to a Prius would be right-down insignificant since the goose-bumps my clients are getting are for real. I do manage to keep my bill below 100,000$, but for most below 20,000$. Consider it like a Cadillac :) There are better cars, sure.

    Sincere regards,
    Erik

    Just went and read the comments on http://www.hometheaterdesignmag.com/208great/

    I feel sorry I said anything. All of this was already said and answered… I do not know you personnaly and there is no reason for me to judge without having heard it.

    I did not realise this setup is not that recent, and yet the owner is still answering back to comments like mine. I can relate to that. Sorry man!

    You know what? I’m sure it sounds amazing and out-of-this-earth. Never said otherwise. You’ve got the money for it. Lucky you. With that much money to spend, HT is also what I would put it into myself first. I just wouldn’t do it that specific way, but that would be me.

    Now I go back to my regular life.

    Live your dream system! Do it for the rest of us!

    (I hope you bought the slim PS3 which has a more silent fan now!)

    Erik.
    Sincerely.
    P.S. —-I’m stuck with tremendous hearing, with what you would call a Prius to watch movies with, I guess :) My system is quite nice and powerful and everybody I know envy me for it. I also get negative comments, though, on how I spent my cash… Well plonk to them! :)

I know that if you have that much money you don´t care if you have a $2000 electricity bill every month, but that is money that could have been invested in a lot better things. So, unless your Richy Rich and sit on you rear end all day playing video games, you should have better things to do.

    Despite all the “Nay Sayers”, Kipnis Studio Standard (KSS) continues to set the benchmark in presentation quality and operational simplicity when it comes to home theaters and commercial cinemas!

    One read through of this ROBB REPORT interview and you’ll be hooked:

  34. September 1, 2010

    Greetings:

    I am the creator and designer of an entirely new level of Ultimate Home Theaters in the world – The Kipnis Studio Standard (KSS) – including the copyrighted Ciné Beta “TRINITY” design, seen above.

    With between 8.8 – 12.12 channels of sound, and composed of as many as 16 subwoofers, 96 speaker drivers, and a video resolution more than four times that of Full HD (1080P); 4K = 10 Megapixels: this is the most immersive Home Theater experience one can own, today and tomorrow.

    Accommodated within dedicated, custom built double height rooms 28.5 x 36 feet in size and larger, a 65,000+ watt Surround Sound System fills the space with sound that’s truly worthy of worship. Capable of entertaining anywhere from between 10 – 100 people at a time, the KSS Ciné Beta Home Theater System lies in the middle of a range of Home Theater design and integration solutions that gets even more extravagant with the KSS Ciné Alpha Stadium Design.

    For those with more modest tastes and budget, but also and equally as much desire for Ultimate Picture and Sound presentation quality, Ciné Gamma and even a Ciné Delta Home Theater “Kit” System design is available starting at a mere $10,000. No matter what your requirements are, the Kipnis Studio Standard (KSS) will create the most immersive, enjoyable, and memorable media experience possible – even in 3D!

    Please come to our website and then send us an email or call with your Ultra Home Theater specifications. You will be totally amazed by what we can do!

    Cheers -

    Jeremy
