Meet Steve Jenkins, a technophile and home theater buff who proudly admits to going over the top with a 12-seat theater that combines old European opulence with the slick wizardry of today's digital gear.

At 22 by 24 feet, the Jenkins' theater is as impressive in size as it is in performance and style. A 10-foot Stewart GreyHawk screen is elaborately framed below a domed ceiling with rope lighting to create any hour of the day with Lutron and a Marantz remote control.

Custom-molded columns line the theater walls, while red velvet curtains conceal the Stewart screen. This throwback to another era, is packed with modern-day audio from Sunfire, James Loudspeakers and Clark Synthesis transducers.

A Marantz DLP projector is suspended above black leather seats, where guests get shaken and stirred thanks to Clark's tactile transducers.

The elegant master bedroom features a 42-inch NEC plasma display framed above the fireplace. It's the perfect spot to relax and watch a movie from either the Sony DVD player or VCR. Triad in-walls deliver the audio with control by Marantz.
