Tips on Hiring the Right Home Theater Installer

Select someone locally. Find a professional home theater company within a 50-mile range of your home. You are more likely to have an installer come by and tweak your system, if need be, when you are within a reasonable distance.

 

Ask for a link to the home theater installation company's Web site or for some images of recently completed installations. Also, ask to visit the home theater installers' showroom to provide you with living examples of their workmanship. Check our our portfolio. Here at Atlanta Audio we have a 6,000 square foot showhouse that showcases home automation, home theater options, whole house audio, lighting control, media rooms, video surveillance, and much more. Call us today to set up an appointment or visit our website at www.atlantaaudio.com.

Ask for references on finished projects that are similar to what you have in mind for your home theater and are relatively within the same cost range. Ask the homeowner about how the installation company works and how satisfied they are with the finished results. Visit our customer testimonials to get an idea of what our customers say about Atlanta Audio.

Find out how an installer works. For example if you are a neat freak and your professional installer is very proficient in plasma and audio technologies but can seem a little scatterbrained or sloppy, your working styles may not connect.

Home Theater Design - 3 Essential Ingredients

"Are you in the process of planning a home theater? Possibly you are well into the design or even already have some construction underway. Or, you may have only recently started to consider the possibility. In any case, you have likely been overwhelmed with copious, confusing and often misleading information on just exactly what creates a great home theater experience. To make sense of it all, it is a good idea to step back and consider what is possible, and what is essential to attain the results you desire. This article will consider three key ingredients of proper home theater design.

To be clear by what is meant by the term "home theater" in this article, we are referring to a room dedicated and optimized for movie, music, TV, and increasingly, video gaming. Other synonyms home technology professionals may use interchangeable for the term "home theater" are "home cinema" and private "screening room". What we are not referring to here are dual-purpose rooms that may double as the Living Room, Great Room, etc, that are open to other rooms in the home and that are not able to be optimized for high-performance audio and video. In home technology professional speak, these dual-purpose, more casual rooms are called "media rooms".

Home Theater vs. Media Room - What's the Difference?

Nomenclature is a challenge when it comes to home technology. We struggle with terms that resonate with homeowners. From the “AV guy" to system integrators to custom installers to technology designers to low-voltage contractors, the home technology industry seems to have an identity crisis, even though all those terms mean essentially the same thing to an insider. The same goes for the terms that we use to define rooms in the home, which brings us to the topic du jour: What is the difference between a media room and a home theater?

Most homeowners do not know or even care about the difference.

You will hear them referring to their dedicated home theater space as a media room and vice versa. For architects, interior designers, builders, lighting designers, and other contractors, however, these distinctions can be important in defining your vision and communicating with each other. In other words, it’s good to know the difference between the two.

The Benefits of Using a Sonos Sound System

Sonos-Speaker-System

Are you trying to figure out what sound system you should purchase for your home? Learn about some of the advantages of using a Sonos home sound system.

It’s Wireless

The major benefit of any wireless system is not having to deal with wires. You can avoid the following issues:

  • Making sure everything is plugged into the right place
  • Starting over from square one when the wires don’t reach the desired speaker location
  • Worrying about a messy, cluttered look with wires all over the place
  • Spending extra time trying to hide the wires

Plain and simple, going wireless gives your space a cleaner look without all the extra work.

Calls Don’t Disrupt Your Music

Most wireless speakers systems stream music via Bluetooth connection. This means that your music is constantly getting disrupted whenever you receive a text or phone call.

With Sonos systems, music is streamed through a wireless Internet connection, meaning you won’t have to worry about interruptions. The music just keeps playing!

Experience Home Entertainment Like Never Before With a Smart System

Blog-Experience-Entertainment-Like-Never-Before-With-Home-Media-Distribution_4d5a8e9f3bc4bdb7f42f4d8a327e50b8

When you upgrade your home with smart automation, you know that you’ll have unprecedented access to entertainment throughout your house. Home entertainment system distribution is important – no matter what kind of 4K television you have and what kind of surround sound system you install. It’s what puts all of your favorite entertainment at your fingertips. Read on to find out how you can have access to nearly endless entertainment throughout your home. 

Endless Entertainment in Your Home Theater

You’ve got all of the right components in your home theater. You have a beautiful 4K projector with a screen that produces some of the deepest blacks available. You have an excellent in-wall and in-ceiling surround sound system that envelops you in auditory bliss. You even have integrated floor lighting that comes on as the overhead lighting is dimmed, so you can see where you’re going without disrupting the picture. So now all you have to do is choose the right movie.

Stream content directly from online services like Netflix or Amazon Prime, or choose from a vast digital library of your favorite films – all from a central hub in an unused closet or basement. You can even keep a Blu-Ray player in the room, so you won’t have to leave the room to pop a disc in. And if you’re enjoying a midnight movie but decide you’d rather finish it in the comfort of your bed, pause it and pick it up exactly where you left off on your bedroom TV. Home media distribution makes accessing your movies and television fast, fun and easy in every room of your house.
