Home Theater Room Acoustics:

• Acoustics do more damage to your Home Theater plan than any piece of equipment ever could.

• The room is an instrument itself that the speaker system will ‘play’ by making it vibrate and causing peaks, valleys and other distortions in the response.

• This is an area often overlooked because the sticker shock of room treatments can give the average man a heart attack. So often the sales rep or Home theater installation company will not bring it up unless they are sure you might be interested and won’t faint when they give you the estimate.

Home Theater Video performance:

• Video performance is not limited to just the piece of gear such as the projector or HDTV.

• There are factors like lighting, viewing angle, viewing distance, and associated equipment that will all affect the overall performance of video.

• Don’t buy the latest and greatest until you have exhausted your equipment setup calibration and tests.

But much of the time I see consumers replace very good gear with newer gear of lesser quality. The old upgrade bug is quite a disease. Here comes buyer’s remorse!

• Make timeless purchases. Wait until that new piece of gear has come down in price a bit. Buy last years greatest model, it will usually be on discount and the performance difference is usually very slight.

• But you may be starting from scratch and can build the theater from the ground up. In either case we offer some basic help to assist you in understanding how the Home Theater works.
