Find the Right TV for Your Needs

First things first: what kind of TV works better with your media room? The decision should be based upon a combination of both your wants and needs. For example, if you’ve always wanted a huge TV, but it wouldn’t fit in nicely with your décor or furniture set up, how about a framed one that matches your color scheme? Those balanced decisions are key for finding the perfect media room set up for you.

Don’t Neglect the Audio

When it comes to home entertainment systems, what you hear is just as important as what you see. Surround sound is always the way to go, and it usually has five or more speakers distributed throughout the room. Your best bet to guarantee great audio is getting the highest quality of speakers possible.

Our team can advise you on the best models depending on whether you’ll primarily watch movies, follow your favorite sports team or listen to music. Depending on the room you’re working with, you could also look into innovations like hidden speakers. They blend seamlessly into your décor, keeping your room nice and sleek.

All-Around Entertainment with Distributed Audio and Video

Let’s say you’re watching a movie in your family room, and everyone is suddenly getting hungry. Instead of pausing and making everyone wait, audio and video distribution allows you to take the movie with you to the kitchen while you fetch dinner. That way, nobody misses a second of the story. In-ceiling speakers let you keep listening so you don’t miss a second of the action.

When you pause a show or movie, resume it from the same spot from anywhere in the house. If yours is the kind of family that takes their entertainment everywhere they go, a robust audio/video distribution system is essential for your home.
