Atlanta Audio Enhances Entertainment in your Atlanta, Georgia Home
When building a home theater in your Atlanta, Georgia smart house, you’ll likely want the best gear that money can buy. But you should know, there’s no reason to overspend if you’re not getting top quality. Designing your theater isn’t as simple as picking out the priciest projector and the snazziest seats – it’s about utilizing your space in a way that optimizes your viewing experience. If you want a hands-on visualization of what your personal cinema could be, come help us celebrate the opening of our new Experience Center on June 27. But before you head off, take a look at the ways we can enhance your home theater.
4K is the Wave of the Future
If you want commercial quality movies playing in your residence, you want to go with 4K. Otherwise known as Ultra HD – UHD for short – 4K represents the very best image currently available when it comes to televisions. And that is no joke, Ultra HD image actually sports four times the resolution of regular HD. That means you can sit just a few feet away without seeing any pixels.
As with any new technology, content is currently limited, but many streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Instant Video are offering hours of 4K entertainment. Plus, the Blu-Ray Disc Association has recently released the specs required for Ultra HD discs, so you can expect to see them popping up on the shelves sometime this fall.

A Sea of Sound
But to go along with that beautifully detailed image, you’re going to want a sound system to match. The days of 5.1 surround sound are gone – Blu-Rays and streaming services are now being produced with 7.1 channels or more, which means the level of sonic sophistication has gone through the roof. An excellent choice is to go with the Aventage series by Yamaha, which sports a hearty 11.2 channels of auditory bliss, which is heaven for even the most hardcore audiophile.

Install Lighting that Works
A home theater isn’t just about the picture and sound though – it’s also about the room itself. And while it might be ideal to have a pitch black room, that’s rarely possible. Commercial theaters use elegant floor lighting to help you see where you’re going without disrupting the picture. Thanks to Lutron, you can have a similar set up in your private cinema. And when you integrate your lighting controls, you can dim the overhead lights and raise the floor lights, all with the touch of a button.
