You’d be surprised at how little it can actually cost to upgrade your at-home movie-watching experience from functional to enjoyable. Here are a few key elements to making your home theater exceptional:

AV Receiver

The AV receiver is the hardest-working component in a home theater. A receiver is both the amplifier and processor for your theater. All of the audio and video inputs and internet connections are routed through the receiver and then processed and either passed up to the projector or down to the speakers. You will need enough inputs for all of your sources including a Blu-ray player, game console, media streamer, and a host of other audio and video components. Many receivers nowadays also offer Bluetooth,  Roku Ready and other necessary technology for streaming online content.

Speakers

A great-sounding home theater doesn’t need the biggest or the loudest speakers, just the best ones for your room and budget. One of the most important parts of a good home audio system are the speakers. Check out Consumer Reports on speakers you’re interested in and then talk to home audio professionals like us to get our opinion and advice.

If you’ve ever walked out of a movie to complain to management about the sound quality, then surround sound is likely a must. So, you’ll want to start thinking about the size and appearance of your speakers as well as where all the speakers in a surround system would be placed. 

Have a room you can dedicate to a complete home theater? Then you could be looking into in-wall and ceiling speakers. We have an extensive selection and can help you choose the right ones for your unique needs.

You can even build your own custom system and our home audio team can help you do it. We can assist you in determining what types of speakers will be suit the room they will be going into, among other decisions.
