According to Welles, the system outlined here was installed by his company for an NFL player … he couldn’t tell us who. The McIntosh audio processor and amp, combined with Wisdom’s ribbon speakers creates a large and dynamic sound stage so that everyone is sitting in the sweet spot. The room into which this system was installed had large windows (and lots of ambient light), which made a projection system impossible to pull off. The next best thing: a 103-inch plasma TV.

The components:
McIntosh MX121 AV Processor, $6,000
McIntosh MC8207 Amplifier, $6,000
Wisdom Audio L75 M (front, left and right speakers), $17,700
Wisdom Audio P38 M Center Speaker, $5,450
BG Radia SS303 Surround Speakers, $4,000
Wisdom Audio Subwoofer, $4,000
Wisdom Audio SC-1 System Controller, $6,500
Wisdom Audio 3-Channel Amplifier, $5,000
Panasonic 103-inch Plasma TV, $50,000
