When it comes to home theatre systems, the sky is truly the limit. Never before have we seen so many consumer-ready options for high-quality, affordable and impressive home theatre equipment. From velvety sound from bass-boosted speakers to ginormous televisions that look like liquid glass, the future is here.
But, with all of the future glamour that comes with home theatre setups, there is a feeling of too much variety. It gets harder and harder to know what the best thing is when options abound at every intersection. Do you actually need sixteen speakers, or are eight higher quality speakers a better investment? Can you really enjoy a 72” television in a 15’ foot room, or is the size a detriment after a certain point?
Below, we look at some of the best home theatre setup ideas around. They help you focus your vision of what a home theatre setup should be so that you can make informed decisions that suit YOUR needs. Get ready, and let’s get started.
Setting Up Your Home Theatre: The Best Ideas
Choose Quality Over Quantity
As we alluded to above, the best theatre systems may not be the biggest. Instead, they may be on the cutting edge of technology, using the latest technology in the most interesting applications. Or, they perfectly recreate an amazing soundscape, giving you a depth of sound that allows for a more immersive experience.
These effects can be replicated by choosing quality products. The nice pair of headphones that lasts you a couple of years far outweighs the cheap pair you bought at the dollar store. Think about your home theatre as a complete project and select the right item to improve. This is usually the one you like the least, by the way.
Do Your Research
Once you’ve selected the greatest deficiency of your home entertainment system, research possible solutions. What are the best ways to fix sound problems? Is it putting dampening material on the walls, buying new speakers, or adjusting the television settings? Take the time to holistically examine your problem and brainstorm possible solutions. This will help you understand what you need to learn more about in order to make your system work to the best of its ability.
Once you have some firm ideas in your head, the next step is to back them up with research. Consumer products vary widely depending on your market, so it is best to see what you can find nearby. The feeling of setting your heart on a product just to realize it is unavailable is gut-wrenching every time. Research can prevent this problem, especially with positive user reviews.
Try New Experiences
To get the best home theatre experience, you need to be willing to try new things. Different technologies like VR or 3D may not always work out exactly the way you expect, but they do offer a sense of wonder and excitement that only comes with trying new things. In the theatre space, you have so much potential for projectors, wireless equipment, media sharing devices, automated LEDs, smart spaces and other wonders that you shouldn’t constrain yourself to the television and sound system parameters. Be adventurous and amazed at the result.
