A Home Theater System Offers a Cinema-Like Experience
Movies provide an experience of sights and sounds that can take you to places far, far away. For decades, the only way to receive that feeling of escape was to go to a cinema to enjoy the large screen and booming speakers. Now however, homeowners can purchase a home theater projector and all of the equipment necessary to have a complete cinematic experience right in their living rooms.
Today you can choose from a wide assortment of sizes in projector screens so that you find just the right one that fits into your room. Bigger is not necessarily better when it comes to screens so be sure to select one that fits into your room nicely. Having a super large screen in a small room is actually a mistake that many people make as viewers simply cannot fully enjoy the cinematic experience if they are forced to turn their heads to see the entire picture or look upwards, which can be very uncomfortable. Large screens that take up most of the wall are best for big rooms only, so be sure to select a screen that offers viewers a comfortable movie watching experience.
While the visual aspect of movie watching is at the forefront of a movie’s appeal, it is the sound that really immerses you in the experience. In order to receive top quality audio that is similar to what is offered in a theater, you will need to have a compete surround sound system that includes several speakers located in the center of the room, to the right, left and a couple of speakers placed behind the seating area. It is also necessary to have a high quality sub-woofer capable of producing the deep bass.
Besides projector screens and speakers, you will need a good projector. Many people take their budget into consideration when choosing a projector. An LCD projector offers great color resolution, brightness and display with very detailed images. DLP projectors on the other hand show a fewer number of pixels on the screen, but they are small and very portable. It is always a good idea to speak with an expert who can guide you in choosing the right type of projector.
Once your equipment is purchased, it is time to set up the room so that everyone has a good view of the screen. It is always a good idea to give people a choice in seating. In addition to offering couches and easy chairs, having a small bar set up at the back of the room with a few wood bar stools is a nice alternative that will surely be appreciated by your guests.
