What are the key components of a high-quality home theater system?

A custom theater has a few core components. Those include an ambient light-rejecting screen, a high-end projector, surround sound speakers, subwoofers, an AV receiver, and source components. In addition to the AV gear, we’ll integrate acoustic treatments, specialty seating, and lighting and shading control to create the right environment. 

How do I choose the right home theater system for my space?

Things will vary from home to home. We think carefully about the room acoustics and layout, seating arrangement, what you want to watch, audio preferences, and your budget. That’s why starting things off with a consultation is vital. 

What are the benefits of integrating a whole-home audio system with smart home technology?

During our AV installations, we connect your whole-home audio with the rest of your smart technology. The primary reason is convenience and ease of use. You’ll be able to find music, choose where to play it, and adjust the volume using the same device you use to manage lights, security, and more. 

What are the common challenges faced during audio video installations?

There are some issues we often see in DIY AV installations. The main one is compatibility: do your speakers, receiver, sources, display, etc. all work well together? On top of that, you must properly configure details like aspect ratio, video calibration, audio output, etc. Without the proper wiring, you may also see video lag behind the sound or vice versa, which is one of the toughest things to diagnose and fix. 

What future-proofing measures should I consider when installing an audio video system?

Some clients don’t want to do a full AV install because they worry they’ll have to redo the whole thing when new tech comes around. But a properly installed system is future-proof. For example, it’s easy to plug in new devices or expand with optimized cable management. We also use cabling with extra bandwidth to prepare for future resolution requirements. And with remote monitoring via our support plans, we put through software updates as soon as they’re available.
