The pool is under cover and open to the outside on two sides. Built into the back wall is what looked like a 50" plasma. There was also a left/right/center speaker on the wall as well. At the rear of the pool there was a left and right rear speaker and gas heater. I could not locate a sub Posted Image! Here are a couple of shots I took with my crapy digi camera.

That does look really sweet. Not sure the long term survivablity of the screen due to moisture, but cool nevertheless.

As long as they dropped the plasma behind a protective screen they should be oK, if not they'll be buying a new one

The plasma is behind a protective screen and I would hope that it is sealed and locked in to prevent theft. I would guess a 10k Plasma is not that big of deal to someone that could afford a 2.5 million dollar house Posted Image Posted Image

Very nice... however, I can't imagine soaking in a pool to watch the FOTR EE... one might wind up with hypothermia. Posted Image

I'm not sure which movie that is. Then again, if I was swimming in the pool with a fine lady, I don't think we'd be watching action shows, drama or comedy. Posted Image

Not to worry... there is a hot tub at the back corner of the pool and a big phaty gas heater haging from the ceiling. Posted Image
