Home Theater Installation
Not long after the widespread adoption of television, home theaters starting
showing up in homes of consumers interested in the movie theater experience.
Today, home theater installation specialists can create an experience unlike
anything outside a movie theater.
A well-designed home theater system comprised of high quality components elevates
your media experience to levels beyond what many consumers even realize is possible.
Every home theater installation is one of a kind because each is optimized based
on numerous variables. From the layout and design of the space, to the smaller
details, including seamless integration of speakers, components and wiring into
the room, nothing is left to chance. For the true media enthusiast, a custom
home theater is the premier option.
Modern home theaters offer a nearly endless array of options, levels of integration
and pricing. Before committing to a custom installation, spend some time considering
your goals for the setup. Are you converting an already finished, frequently
used room for home theater use, or are you starting from scratch
with a basement or empty room? Do you plan to use the room primarily for watching
movies, or will the space need to facilitate multiple media uses such as gaming
or listening to music?
Once youve decided how your new home theater will be used, its
time to consult a professional. A home theater installation specialist will
work with you on all aspects of the system and environment. He or she can offer
advice on seating, lighting and room layout and, of course, the components
that will make up your system.
Home theater systems are typically comprised of separate input units that run
through one or more processing units delivering video and audio signals to outputs,
such as TVs and speakers. The number, type, placement, and cost of these units
and associated hardware are almost infinite. A specialist will be able to help
you decide which products work well together, and are right for your application.
An often overlooked benefit of a custom installation is the quality, professional
look and feel of the completed space. Using a room designed for optimum media
enjoyment is a treat for both enthusiasts and casual watchers. Obvious elements,
such as perfect seating and amazing audio-visual quality, are combined with
easily overlooked details such as specialized insulation and correct speaker
placement. The result is an overall home theater experience that is as attractive
as it is functional.
Dont trust your custom home theater installation to an amateur. Specialized
expertise is a must for ensuring high-quality results. Thats why considering
a CEDIA certified member is an important step toward realizing the home theater
youve always wanted.
