  • What is the most important element in a home theater?

    The most essential element of the movie theater experience is sound.  The way sound is implemented in a home theater system is critical to the overall experience and possibly even more so than the picture.  When choosing the audio system, there are several different components you need to consider.

    • The audio video receiver is the basis of the audio system. It provides the amplification and the features that will drive the sound. Audio Video receivers need to be matched to the room and the speakers in order to optimize audio performance. Surround sound processors have the ability to make the room larger or smaller. The processing capability of the receiver creates the environment in your room.

    How many speakers do I need?

    For a home theater system, you will need at least five to seven speakers. The center channel speaker placed above or below the screen will deliver the dialogue/voices. The right and left front speakers will create the width of the scene on the screen, and the left and right rear speakers will create the depth of the environment.

    What about picture quality?
    • At the core of every home theater is the video display.  To bring the giant movie theater experience home, you want a large and high-quality display size.  Factors such as room size, light, control, seating position and viewing angle all play a role in the type and size of the display you choose.

    What sources can I have?
    • A video matrix distribution allows for a variety of sources to choose from.  From Blu-Ray, Satellite or Cable TV, to streaming online content like Netflix and Hulu, you will not be missing any content.
