I using a half-leather 3 seater sofa with 2 Seats recliner . Nothing beats a recliner comfort seat for a nice movie watching :))

Actually there are many nice sofa, my current sofa is ikea one and I do think they are super comfortable, but the problem is no head rest. TV is low, its fine, but projector viewing is higher and definitely need a good headrest to tilt up abit.

Ht hobby is like car mod, mod 1 part then need change everything else too. Lol.

Went down to King's Living and tried the Cloud with wife.
We have been using a 3-seater stressless for 5 years.
Find the Cloud as comfortable as the stressless.
However, the Cloud wins over the Stressless in
a. Integrated footrest.
b. 2 memories. I like a bit upright when watching football and more flat watching movie.
c. Options to add light.
So we bought the Cloud to replace Stressless in the home theater.

I find that too high headrest of sofa will impact my surround viewing experience, you guys doesnt face the same problem?

Even I adjusted the speaker slightly higher, when I compare to a sofa without headrest, the surround experience is day and night difference.

Yes it does impact surround panning. For comfort, many would choose full headrest but it may compromise surround panning to a certain extent. The only way is to recline the seat a little.

Been watching movies without headrest for many years . But take note if your seat is near backwall , you need to do some treatment on the backwall to make imaging balance .

By the way , I am looking for a low back recliner chair to replace current seat . Any recommendation where can find one? Or a recliner seat that can take out headrest like vehicle seat ?

So far, I have been using these type. The headrest can be folded up manually or powered.
 I feel it gave me both option and easier when guests are around.

Thanks. I am using this for my hall setup . However the single seat is quite wide . It is meant for 1.5ppl for single seat version. Another issue is the back is too thick which will tend to push my listening position quite a bit to the front . I wanted to find a smaller single seat for my room setup .

Fixed.  The whole assembly reclines.  I often fell asleep in it.

One thing I dont like about stressless is the footstool. The cushion is fixed to the wooden stand by a flimsy plastic pin thingy that drops out all the time.
The stool is also a bit light, and tends to drift away when I put my legs on it.
