Guinness Book recognizes Redding inventor

REDDING - A Redding man is making headlines after his home theater landed him in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Jeremy Kipnis was listed in the Gamer?s Edition of the book after assembling a sound system that uses 8.8 channels, which surpasses the typical 5.1 that is seen in other home theaters and some movie theaters.

?There is a quality of experience that you get in this room with the technologies that I have brought together, which is not duplicated anywhere else in the world,? Kipnis says.

He says that the technology in his studio gives the viewer a first-person experience and recreates the live shows that he attended as a child. He hopes to make a version of his Kipnis Studio Standard that is cheaper and easy to setup for shoppers heading to their local Wal-mart or Target.
