Home Theater System Installation
June 25 is Color TV Day! This monumental advance in technology changed the way we enjoy movies and shows forever. To celebrate with television and movie lovers everywhere, we want to explain some of the benefits to installing a home theater system in your home.
Home Theater System Benefits
Adding a home theater system means that every movie, television show, ad video game with your family is an experience. Here are a few reasons to love home theater technology.
1. Theater Experience, Home Convenience
With larger screens, surround sound, and the plush seating of your favorite couch, you may find that you enjoy watching movies at home just as much as you would at your local theater. Instead of only experiencing new releases in this setting, relive your treasured favorites on a theater screen whenever you want!
This image might be especially enticing for anyone with small kids. Never worry about your baby crying or your toddler shouting in front of a theater crowd when the only occupants are your own family. As an added bonus, you’ll save money on snacks by popping your own corn and grabbing a soda from the fridge.
2. Life-Sized Sports
Since you can watch any channel you want on a home theater system, that means you can experience sports broadcasts like never before. Sit courtside for your favorite basketball team or right on the 50-yard line for the Super Bowl when you watch games in larger than life proportions. Imagine the big game parties you could host with a home theater for your friends and family to enjoy.
3. Video Game Immersion
If you or your family likes to play video games, a home theater can transform your experience. Connect your computer with an HDMI cord to play PC games, or connect your PlayStation, Xbox, or Wii and fully immerse yourself in your own virtual world. This aspect of home theaters can also be great for parties. What’s better than Mario Cart on a jumbo screen?
4. Home Value Increase
Aside from all of the ways to enjoy your home theater while you have it, it can provide monetary benefits if you decide to move. A home theater is an excellent asset to increase the value of your home to potential buyers, for all of the same reasons we have listed above and more. When you invest in a home theater, you are giving yourself an edge in the real estate world.
Home Theatre System Installation Prep
Now that you know why you’ll love a home theater system, you might be curious about the installation process and what you can do on your own. Here are some factors to consider.
Home theatre systems require several pieces of technology, all of which can quickly become expensive. Decide before you begin the purchasing and installation process how much you are willing to spend, and it will guide your choices on which features you need and which ones you can live without.
Before you purchase the necessary technology, it is important to carefully consider which area of your home would be the best fit. The room should be dark and comfy, with plenty of wall space for a large screen.
Most home theaters have the following components: speakers, a receiver, video input, and a television or projector. Although you can hunt for the best deals on each of these products, it might be easier to purchase an all-in-one package.
If your family loves to relive classic movies or even simply binge Netflix episodes, you might find that upgrading to a home theater system is the right choice for you. Happy Color TV Day!
