There’s no standard system that provides entertainment “perfection” right out of the box. The perfect home theater is a personal system design. Some homeowners like big speakers that make the floor rumble; some like big screens that fill up the entire wall. Others just want audio and visual clarity so nothing looks blurry. There are a number of steps a person can take to have a high quality system that will blow your socks off.
Do Your Research: Just going out and buying a bunch of components is a quick way to spend a lot of cash on the wrong parts. First you need a plan. It’s better to have all the room dimensions planned out to reference when comparing equipment.
Once you’ve taken measurements, shop to match available, quality equipment with your desires for your custom system. This will require quite a bit of testing, trying out different brands, and then matching them up with components to see the full effect. A top-notch component store can help you. If your friends have entertainment systems of their own, this is a good way to try out various brands for free.
If you are unfamiliar with how equipment systems work and are connected, hire an audio and visual expert. Even if you’re not purchasing yet, knowledge about how systems work, get installed, and connect to each other is invaluable. You can hire technicians to do the manual install. Let the experts worry about the connections.
Installation: The area where the home theater will be installed needs to be cleared of all furniture, shelves, hangings, and other materials that will get in the way. In some cases, installation may require access above the ceiling or behind walls. This will involve drilling and opening cavities to complete the equipment installation. All hardware should be anticipated before getting started. This avoids repeat trips to the hardware store in the middle of the process. If you hire an installer, sit back and relax!
You’ve done your home work and hired a professional. Now Enjoy!
