There are a lot of factors involved in building a complete custom home theater, much more than just hooking up the components and turning on a video source. For example, such factors such as the quality of the different components and speaker placement will have a large impact on whether or not the final product meets your personal expectations, and for the best results you should work with someone that understands the complexities of complete custom home theater design and installation.
A custom built home theater can be as simple or complex as you wish. Start with a high quality visual set, and combine it with high quality speakers, including free standing floor speakers, in-wall speakers, in-ceiling speakers and more to create the ultimate sound and viewing experience. Don’t forget comfort and for the true home movie theater experience, consider comfortable theater style seating, or keep it simple with a coach and chairs. Before you decide, consider talking with a professional audio/video installation company, who will be more than happy to introduce a number of options to you.
Home electronics is an ever changing field, and things move so quickly that you want to make sure the components you purchase for your system will not only work together successfully, but also stand the test of time. In other words, you don’t want to save a few dollars purchasing outdated equipment if it means your entire custom home theater system is going to be obsolete before it is even installed. Unless you are extremely knowledgeable about consumer electronics, talking to someone that is in the field before you make any big purchases is an absolute no-brainer. Especially as it relates to home theater design, experience and the ability to plan accordingly goes a long way.
Another reason why working with a home electronics professional is a good idea is because they know the technology better than anyone, and can help you get max performance out of the components of your custom home theater, from the set and speakers, down to the DVD player and remote.
Speaking of remotes, every home theater no matter the complexity has a number of different electronics, and there are a number of high quality remotes available through professional audio / video installation companies that will centralize the control of the TV, speakers, receiver, DVD player and more for complete ease of use. You can even automate certain features like shades and lighting that will make the experience that much more complete.
Sure you could try to figure out everything on your own, but a professional will not only help you select the right equipment, but learn it much quicker as well. Whether you’re an electronics nerd into the latest gadget or a movie buff looking to create the ultimate home entertainment system, a custom home theater design and installed by professionals will leave you in awe. Instead of going to the movies and spending way too much money to sit in an uncomfortable environment with a bunch of strangers, bring the movie to you with a complete custom home theater.
