Ultimate Man Cave Has 4 Screens in 800-Square-Foot Apartment
By Steven Castle
Sauna, hot tub, steam room and motorized bed make this an AV geek’s wonder spa.

It may be the ultimate man cave. It even resembles a cave, decked in granite walls and floors. But this 800-square-foot New York City apartment boasts not one, not two, but three big-screen Samsung HDTVs, plus a 106-inch drop-down Screen Innovations display served by a $15,000 Wolf Cinema near-4K projector. And you can view them all from the motorized, roll-out bed.

To which point you may ask: Why? And the best answer may be why not. The apartment owner is a doctor whose office is next door, and who can access his secret A/V lair with a keypad or his smartphone to open a hidden door in a bookshelf.


One is immediately greeted with what appears to be two large art pieces of art. Home electronics designer and installer Todd Anthony Puma of The Source Home Theater Installation & Design in New York City reaches for a URC MX-6000i RF and Wi-Fi remote, and with a touch of a button, the Vutec ArtScreen artwork in the facing frames roll up to reveal two 55-inch Samsung LED HDTVs.

At the same time, the button rolls down the 106-inch Screen Innovations Gamma Screen and fires up the Wolf Cinema SDC-15 projector, which can shine a 3840 x 2160-pixel resolution (near 4K) using JVC’s D-ILA engine. The projector is tucked into a ventilated space above the rollout bed, along with two Paradigm SIG-1.5R in-ceiling speakers, which are wall-mounted behind rectangular grilles to achieve rear-channel surround sound.
