A great home theater experienced is contingent upon a few key pieces of equipment, technology, and installation.   can enhance your home and your lifestyle.  Whether you plan on screening the latest action film or you prefer to plug in and experience first-person video-game action, a home theater system can provide the stunning visual effects, sound, and graphics that ordinary television simply can’t produce.

1. Experience

The best home theaters create an entirely new experience for families to enjoy. More and more people are spending more time inside their home and with their families. Before you begin the process, make sure you’re working with an experienced audio/visual company.  There is no point in installing a television with a high refresh rate, if your cable or internet is not up to snuff.  The professionals at Maddox Audio Video Design understand all of the factors that should be considered in order for you to get the best experience from your home theater system.

2. Electronics

One of the first pieces of equipment that probably comes to mind when you consider the electronics included in a home theater system is a big-screen television or perhaps, even a projector. Choosing the right projector is key to making sure that every movie or video game is displayed in the best possible quality. How will you use the equipment?  It is important to consider the pros and cons of each piece of equipment when determining which one will work best in the room where you plan to place it. There are benefits to each type of TV, projector, and screen, so making the right choice will depend on what kind of experience you want to create.  The room acoustics, layout, and sound system are also critical to the experience. 

3. Location

The location, lighting, and overall aesthetics of your home theater are really important to the overall experience you want to create.  Perhaps you want to create a clean, modern room where the equipment is hidden in a cabinet or  closet.  Or, perhaps you want all of the equipment to be positioned as showpiece?  Lighting is critical to creating a great experience – natural light, ambient light, and automated lighting are all important considerations.  Each design choice has pros and cons, and Maddox AV can help you go through each option carefully so that you can create the ultimate home theater experience!
