We’re Not Talking About Speakers and Displays
When planning for a home theater installation, it’s easy to spend most of your time thinking about the display and speakers. After all, you can’t have a home theater without picture and sound. But these elements are only two of a multitude of others that make a home theater truly epic.
The truth is that even the biggest display and most powerful speakers can’t outperform a poor home theater design. If you want an awesome theater room in your Phoenix, AZ home, don’t overlook the following design elements that are critical to the comfort and performance of your home theater.
8K and Dolby Atmos Elevate the Home Entertainment Experience
Home theaters and media rooms have been around for a long time, and the technologies powering them have seen significant change. Video, audio, and control technologies have seen significant improvements, and sometimes we forget how far they have come.
The home theater of a dozen years ago might be equipped with a Blu-ray player as a primary source of high-quality movie content. Today, while many still use this, it’s more popular to stream video in excellent quality from Netflix, Amazon Video, Vudu, and a host of other online services. In audio, surround sound was just beginning to go beyond the standard 5.1 surround setup with a front stage and two surround speakers. And with video, high definition 1080P was the standard resolution, just entering its growth phase as people replaced older standard definition TVs and projectors.
Fast forward to today, and we now have not only 4K but 8K resolution available, immersive Dolby Atmos audio, and supremely intuitive control systems. Let’s explore how you can update your media or home theater design in your Scottsdale, AZ home to elevate your entertainment experience.
Even Just a Few Design Hiccups Can Significantly Knock Performance
You’ve wanted a dedicated space in your Seattle home for movies and shows for a while, and you’re finally ready to take on the project. Maybe you’ve purchased some gear, picked out couches online, and already have a lineup of films you’re going to enjoy once the setup is complete.
But before you get started on your media room or home theater design, be sure to steer clear of the following common design mistakes if you really want a high-performance and immersive entertainment room. And if you begin to feel overwhelmed, don’t worry—our home theater experts are here to help.
