    Ther're a couple in my basement :p The thing I hate about them -- they take up more space folded up than open! Plus, the fabric wears after a while and eventually the bottoms rip open when sat upon.

    Other than that, they're great, I suppose.

    I had one of these originals for years. And why I gave it away as a gift is something I've been regretting for a long time. It's value back then was about 750.00.

    Yes, I had the foot rest to match. :'(

    I currently use an Eames chair, along with matching foot rest, and consider it one of my rig's components. When I got it, my wife got the idea that it was going in the living room. I had to hold my ground to convince her to let me take it down into my "listening room". They are a nice example of mid-century modern furniture. Now I couldn't imagine listening without it.

    Nice recliner, Mikey. For a while I was using a Lazy Boy, but eventually felt the huge, cloth, chair was absorbing too much sound. Now I have a leather Scandinavian type recliner, which seems better sound wise.

    Glad to have helped make you spend your money Mikey. Happy listening.

    Trey, you need to work on your chair man. You upped your game on the system but dude....that chair!

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    If Eames are in your budget, they seem to be popular and have the cool high-end design factor. I would like to try one someday. If not I'll have to try another nice alternative. https://www.nfm.com/DetailsPage.aspx?productid=46936332

    LOL. I was visiting a friend in Galveston and we went to a restaurant/bar on a pier, and a fat couple came in. The guy sat in one of those chairs and it ripped under his weight. Fortunately, the pier didn't collapse when he hit the floor.
