    The 790 inch tv has 576 display unit, each unit has 2 fans. The noise of 1152 fans... Going to need a beefy sound system to drown that lot out!

    One would assume that if you have money for that screen, you would have money for a "beefy" sound system.
    Now, this was designed mostly for real cinema, not for home. At least not for the home of common mortal person.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    The seating looks way too close for that 220 inch unit. Using the rule of thumb of at least 1.5x diagonal inches for distance, you'd want to be 27.5 feet away. If you sat as close as the image shows anyway, you probably wouldn't want to be in either outside seat on that front row, because of the viewing angle.

    (It's a 220 inch install and not a 110, I'm guessing, because the vertical size looks more like 9 foot than 4.)
