Also thinking about buying the stressless chairs/sofa. The current sofa is giving me backaches (if sat too low), and neck aches (if sat high). Saw many nice HT sofas on Google, but none of them from Singapore.

GV gold class seats would be nice!

Any contacts or good recommendations for seats available in Singapore?

Edit: found this after I post. Will be checking them out. Elite Chairs (from LivingWorks): http://www.livingworks.com.sg/beautify-your-home/elite-chairs/

do share the price once you've checked them out.

Bought my Stressless from Sound Decisions.  Sammy shipped my unit all the way to Hong Kong.

King Living's King Cloud III is the best looking recliner in my opinion.



Looks good, for music can have the headrest down then the option to have it back up when watching movies for the tactile feel

The optional Sonos speaker mounts is a bit gimmicky I feel, as the speaker position is not ideal.  Just for info, you can even put a Sonos Sub under the middle console of the sofa.

Another picture of this contemporary design, this is the previous version King Cloud II, although only minor differences in version III (like slightly sloped side armrest)

I went to htl and am very pleased with a recliner sofa. They do have individual recliners too.  Prefer the look using it for about 2years with no problems but i akso use a cushion to prop up the back

I am using htl sofa as well for many years without issues. Too comfortable which can make a lot of my family members fall asleep.

+1 on HTL. Go to their Sofa Outlet at Marina Square. You can choose your preferred configuration and color.

Looks super comfy, is it leather or fabric? Mine is just like that too, in leather.

Unfortunately, the large leather surface is very reflective and badly affects midrange balance and imaging... One of my biggest regret and biggest flaw in overall setup... Nowadays I put 2 large cushions either side of me when I'm listening, slightly better..

What's the price for 3 seater at HTL? Saw their site, sofa looks good.

I don't have big sofa, switching to projector got me thinking a recliner is better as your vision need to tilt upwards abit, current sofa no head support so tiring to look up.

This one actually looks good. How is it holding up so far? Would u mind to share the shop?

Look for electric recliner that is 3 to 4 seater. As need to fill up my current sofa that is 3meter long.

3 seater usually only 2m long.

I used the stressless recliner. For HT it's perfect, although need the footstool which is quite lightweight and tends to slide away even on carpet, very irritating.
I also find that for music, the leather is reflective and muffled the sound. That's why I sit on a rattan chair nowadays for music.
For big sofas  my experience is that there is boundary re-inforcement between the back rest and base of the sofa, so that bass becomes boomy and muffled. Again, most noticeable for musical, ok for HT.
