A bit of an old thread but I thought people might find this useful.
How are y'all liking your HT seats after over a year usage now?
I'm considering just getting a row of 3 w/ loveseat (probably right side) of one of the Seatcraft premium leather series (choosing between nearly identically priced Grenada, Venetian, Rialto w/ Flip Arms and maybe Sienna) probably from TheaterSeat.com to replace our broken down, inexpensive IKEA leather sofa. Yes, this will actually be in our livingroom HT (w/ modest FP setup), not dedicated HT room, so only space for 1 row of 3... while probably leaving a little space behind for very sporadic use of some IKEA leather bar stools (w/ backs... and of course, the wall) when needed -- there will also be 2-3 additional seats outside the surround sound field w/ decent enough view of the projected image due to our relatively open living space.
Wondering if anyone has additional thoughts/insights on the various lines of HT seating in the same ballpark price as the Seatcraft ones I'm already looking at. Unfortunately, I don't have easy access to check any of them out in person and kinda need to buy very shortly since I'm replacing our broken down sofa. So any help or input would be much appreciated...
I like mine, but I will say I erred a bit on look over comfort. Don't do that. Don't buy on price either. Buy the most comfortable ones you can get that are rugged. Some of the seats I sat in had way better back support than the ones I bought, but these look a million times better to me. I'll ride them out for 20 years, but next time I will lean way more towards overall comfort, both upright and leaned back.
Finally ordered the Seatcraft Rialto 3-seater w/ 1 fliparm via 4Seating.com's Presidents Day sale (for $1720 shipped). 4Seating is apparently the same company as TheaterSeat.com, which I found out by calling the latter. And they've been out-of-stock all this time (since circa mid-Jan) and still won't have stock for another ~3 weeks, so gonna be waiting some more...
The Rialto series looks very similar to the Palliser Pacifico that Charles showed in above post (a year ago), except I added a fliparm seat section (that's ~1/2 the width of a regular seat, but non-reclining) in place of 2 middle arms.
