A home theatre is an expensive consumer item and you should take care with the purchase and the installation if you want to enjoy the full benefits of it. Your mistakes are likely to be costly ones especially in the installation department.
The location is important
The location of the theatre is very important for the full utilization of the audio system and the screen. Ever wondered why the home cinema plays so well in the specialty electronic store? This is because the surround acoustics are perfect and the lighting is good.
Don’t get the theatre installed in a room which has a lot of sound disturbances coming in and a lot of interference from other electronic devices. If you have brought a plasma TV screen then choose a room with normal lighting and if the screen is LED then choose a dark room.
Do a Test run at the store
Bring along a copy of a movie with high resolution images and a good sound track and then run the DVD in the home theatre you wish to purchase at the store itself. People buy home theatres on the basis of the sample recordings at the electronic store.
Then they come back home and are disappointed that the brand new product is not running as well as expected. This makes them call up the installers again for uninstalling the theater and taking it back to the store. All of this trouble could have been avoided if a test run had been done at the store.
If you are having problems in getting signals for your television, maybe its time to upgrade to digital antenna.
One of the great interior decor that you could use at home is a wooden floor. It is easy maintain and less expensive to replace if you need to.
