    Iím thinking getting true cinema seating because the reason is I get deeply depressed sitting in slouching sofa or even those propose made potato seats for home theatre in the US, they look, repulsive looking.

    So professional cinema seating it is used or new I donít care, but the price has got to be right, one cinema seating as been around long before home cinema not to mention television. Cinema seating is the art of comport and thou I would like a [rocker seat] kinder like the ones used at the Empire Leicester square in screen 1, new or used doesnít really matter.


    One such site I found in Google image, well I can tell thatís in the USA, no matter Iíll keep fishing around tonight and give London a call Monday to get some information, I need to know where the top cinema UK cinema seating suppliers are in the United Kingdom.

    I like this video with true cinema seating no imitations no couch slouching potato seats seen here.

    Doing some more re-thinking this evening does anyone know the cost of the framing for rack mounting because I might have a plan C solution for the living room. Iíve measured one item which has the maximum depth which is my Pioneer laserdisc player CLD-1750 same goes with Pioneer CLD-2950.

    Depth of the wall area is 18Ē depth of Pioneer laserdisc player CLD-1750 with RCA phones attached is 17 Ĺ and thatís extremely tight. All the other equipment is well under that mounting depth.

    I figure I could save a few Bob, if I had the mounting racks.

    Hello 4645

    Do you mean the L bars that go into the cabinets?? They are very inexpensive. The cabinet is what's going to cost you. It's real easy to convert cabinets if they can accomodate the 19" rack gear.

    Yes that’s what I’ll need do they come in different lengths or am going to need a hacksaw to cut them to length size.

    Thanks mate.

    Well that’s in the US isn’t parts express, so I’ll call digital village in the morning and see if they have L rack plates in stock for next day delivery.

    You'll see they have various lengths available there.

    Be aware if you haven't used rack rail before that the equipment mounting holes are not evenly spaced - this is especially important if you're cutting to custom lengths! The holes are spaced based on standard increments, but the holes that are top/bottom to each piece of equipment are closer together. (Easier to see in person than explain with words... ).

    Gotcha evenly spaced, also can you get parts to fit onto devices that donít have the holes and modify them. Yes that may sound brutal, drilling into a DVD player on the side and laserdisc player to fit the brackets, maybe thatís not a good idea, or may be it is.

    Thanks mate.

    I've been know to do that. Those parts are called "rack ears" and tons of different ones are available from all kinds of manufacturers. They have the correct rack holes/slots already in them - you just have to figure out how to mount them to the components...

    LOL so any item that is sold on Ebay that has [Rack Ears] Iíll know who to contact if the unit breaks down, just kidding.

    Right so Iíll ask digital village in the morning if they also have [Rack Ears] I like the sound of that.


    Thanks mate that's a real bouns.

    Well, well my, my, my this took a bit of searching around this morning a few miss and hits and then I was pointed into the direction of [Studio Spares] UK where they have different framing.

    Iíve ordered x2 24U framing and nuts screws and washes and plastic washers to isolate it from the framing. That should do it now, but I still need to get timbre and [MDF sheet a thin type] to place around the whole assembly to give it a flash and pucker look.

    Thanks to Rob and John, I couldnít get straight answer for the [Rack Ears] because it needs to be [1 to 1] if I want to drill holes into the sides of the Pioneer CLD-1750 laserdisc player and fix that into the framing neatly. Well Iím sure the problem will present itself sooner or later, Iíll figure a way around that.

    Thumbs up True cinema seating best deal


    Iíve been phoning around this morning for true cinema seating and have got a deal or has Noel Edmonds, would say ďdeal or no dealĒ DEAL YES!


    £10.00 per cinema seating for [Odeon Hille Premiere seating black] has seen in the picture here. Iíve ordered x6 plus Iíll have to wait until there delivery van is in the area to make it easy, the seats are all ready assembled thatís why I need to wait cost for delivery could be anywhere from £80.00 to £100.00 pounds.

    So if anyone else on the forums would like to buy more of these seats I can pm you and Iíll forward the contact because they have loads of these will sadly end up in skip and that would be a shame.

    If you don't want to mount rack ears to your components, rack shelves are also available. You mount the shelves in your rack, and just sit the components on them: http://cableorganizer.com/computer-c...k-shelves.html

    Hello there John good afternoon.

    I understand now. It was all to alien to me early on this morning, [rack shelves] because the guy on the phone was trying to explain that to me, but there wasn’t any visual images to see and I was a little unsure at the time.

    But now I understand where you’re coming from. Rack shelves would be a grand idea to place the place the
    x2 laserdisc players and the few other items like
    x 3DVD
    x1 Hi-Fi stereo VCR
    x1Kenwood KRF-X9050D THX select AVR
    x1 Yamaha DSR-70Pro-logic processor
    x1 Yamaha DSP-100

    While the rest is fitted to the racking
    DCX2496
    BFQ2496

    And future DCX2496 x2 plus x5 DEQ2496

    My dad just popped around to drop of chair no its not a cinema chair, a chair that was better and stronger than the one before which LOL broke in half this afternoon after I just made a deal on the cinema seat the darn thing collapsed. And I laughed my ass off I just thought that was funniest thing thatís happened today.

    I showed my dad this $6million dollar caper and even my dad said it looked fake when I pointed out the image of that Rat film was pasted on the screen because it had lighting turned up full and it would wash the image out, he still thought it was fake LOL.

    Smile 24U Racking plate framing

    Well its turned up but I think I need two more of the same for the back donít I, providing of course I want to use rack trays that slide outwards. Iíve been viewing the studio spares catalogue that arrived early this morning and saw the cost of rack trays around £22.00 pounds that isnít too bad providing I, donít go nuts and buy a whole bunch of sliding trays or I can then just buy a normal tray.

    Other than that Iím pleased with the look of the racking plates, very pleased. In the meantime Iíll keep the racking plates in the cardboard tube safely until Iíve got the timber frame fitted up along with flash virtual piece of thin MDF boarding.
