Show Us Yours: Michael's exotic man cave contains a 106-inch projection screen, two full racks of gear and beer on tap. And it's named after the family dog.
This is Michael. "I'm a fire lieutenant in Connecticut," he says. "Here we are at one of the higher mountains where I took an advanced rope rescue class."
His home theater kicks ass. Check it out.

Michael says "The Lazy Dog is actually our very lazy chocolate lab Emmy."

Michael says: "I made the mountain out of spray foam and glue. I painted it, sprayed it with beach sand, then airbrushed details such as cracks. The screen is a 106-inch Stewart."
We didn't ask him why he built the mountain.

Michael says: "This rack is in the basement just below the theater, cool and dry. The LAN cabinet has supplemental cooling fans that activate if needed. This way you don't hear fans running while you're watching a movie."
In this rack:
Buttkicker amp (pulled for repair)
DVR from cable company
Russound controller for whole house audio
Denon amp for whole house audio source
Pioneer Elite SC-LX501 amp for theater

Here's the second rack, located in the theater because it doesn't get hot enough to need cooling.

Speaking of cooling, there's beer on tap. "My wife's a nurse," Michael says, "hence the sign."
