    I'm in need of some HT seating. The 3 seat recliner sectionals fit my need. My dilemma is whether to go with a straight(98" wide) or curved sectional(112" wide). I have a 110" diagonal (viewing surface is 96" wide) 16:9 screen with a viewing distance of 13-14'. Would I be better off (for the outer seat viewing) with a straight sectional or curved with this type of setup?

    I'm no expert but I like the look of the curved seating. This will also take it to the top.

    I am going to have a similar setup. However, I don't have raised seating for the second row. I am going with a curved sectional in the first row, and either recliners or a straight couch for the second row.

    Please post pics when you finish!

    Thanks

    Brad,
    I went with the straight set-up from Lane. I am very happy with the quality and price of the Lane HT seats. My front row is straight, four seats and 140" wide. I think either way you should be fine.

    I got 3 in a curved row. Wife said it made watching more "cozy" as u can very well bug each other about more popcorn or whatnot without actually getting off ur seat.
