“The A/V components are just as rich and detail-attentive as the reds and golds that adorn the massive 28 x 25 x 10 room. A reference-grade Digital Projection International Titan 1080p projector fires beautiful high-def images at the 14-foot-wide CinemaScope aspect ratio Stewart screen, while a JBL Synthesis 9.1 sound system—with washing-machine-sized subwoofers—cranks out the soundtracks.” (Electronic House Article)
