Furniture maker Berkline closing in Tenn. | The Asheville Citizen-Times | citizen-times.com (http://www.citizen-times.com/article/20110330/BUSINESS/110330039/Furniture-maker-Berkline-closing-in-Tenn-?odyssey=tab|mostpopular|text|FRONTPAGE)

Bad news for those of us building dedicated spaces for HT. Berkline was a cost effective supplier of high quality and comfortable seating.

Fortunately, I had already bought mine a few months ago.

(BTW, here is a picture of the current state of the theater. Still very much a work in progress)

Hate to hear that, the name is synonymous with HT...

Thanks. It is an ongoing process, and small changes happen every week or two. I have a long list of projects before I can call it done though. Epson 8100 projector, Onkyo 706 receiver, Panasonic BD-60 BluRay, Toshiba A-30 HD-DVD and old Klipsch KG4 speakers. Quite happy with the equipment. The projects are things like building a false wall to hide the speakers, an equipment rack to get the stuff out of the way.

We end up watching 1-2 movies a week, mostly BluRay. It is me and 2 teenagers, so the selections range from Pixar to SciFi to dumb comedies.

It looks like Lane is buying up the rights to the imported line 12xxx and 13xxx. It seems unclear whether they will buy the name as well or just rebrand.

I thought those were KG4s. I owned a pair for a very short time. VERY efficient, nice speakers, but too bright for my ears.
