What’s Missing from Your Home Theater System?

What’s Missing from Your Home Theater System?

The basic image of a movie theater hasn’t changed in more than a century. The viewer sits facing a screen, while a projector fires images from behind them. Over the years, visual displays have evolved. Now, you can watch from a projector or a TV in stunning 4K resolution right in the comfort of your Southlake, TX home. For some homeowners, that’s enough. But if you want to enjoy the real benefits of a home theater system, you’ll need to upgrade your sound system, too.

What Is Immersive Audio

Surround sound has been around since the 1970s. Originally, it was a way for moviegoers to experience films in a whole new dimension. They were no longer stuck with two-channel stereo. Instead, they could hear five, or seven, or more channels playing sound from all over the room.

Systems became more popular, and soon people were able to enjoy full surround sound in the comfort of their homes. Unfortunately, these systems rarely sounded as good as the one at the theater down the street -- there simply wasn’t enough space to accommodate the appropriate number of channels.

USE A 4K DISPLAY

4K video content is much more readily available than in years past, and the price of 4K projectors and TVs has dropped significantly. With these facts in mind, a 4K display of some type is the logical choice for your home theater. We work with only the best brands to meet your display needs.

To give you the best possible viewing experience, it’s important to choose a display that’s the right size for your room. One tried-and-true guideline is that the distance between the screen and the viewer should be 1.5 to 3 times the size of the screen. In practical terms, this means that if you have about 10 feet (120 inches) between your display and the audience, you shouldn’t buy a display bigger than 6-7 feet (72-84 inches).

SURROUND SOUND IS CRUCIAL

Obviously, image quality is important when it comes to your media room, but quality sound matters just as much. To ensure you get quality sound, you’ll want surround sound for your space. At the very least, a 5.1 speaker setup is crucial. This speaker setup includes 5 main speaker channels (front, left, center, and two other channels placed somewhere behind or to the side) and one subwoofer to amplify the bass channel. These speakers can be placed on stands throughout the room, mounted in the walls or ceilings, or stand freely on the floor; go with the options that best suits your home’s aesthetic.
