Home theaters are great for relaxing, entertaining, and bringing the whole family together. One important thing to remember in considering your many home theater options is that the sum of the parts is usually greater than the whole. Our staff has over 10 years of experience putting audio and video together for hundreds of satisfied customers.
A dedicated home theater is designed specifically for entertainment: enjoying movies, sports, TV, and video gaming. Basements, attics, bonus rooms, or spare rooms are great as dedicated home theater spaces.
Significant improvements in video technology can give you a great picture for a fraction of the cost only 10 years ago. This allows more room in your budget for great sound. Unlike video, audio pricing has held very steady in its cost to performance ratio. Recent improvements in home theater speakers will make your surround sound experience even more fun.

Home Theater Projector
Projectors provide the ultimate home theater experience. Nothing else comes as close to truly re-creating the viewing experience of a movie theater. We often talk about how a bigger screen is the most impactful upgrade for TVs. Projectors make it possible to enjoy images that are much larger than even the biggest TVs offer.
Home Theater Screen
Although projection screens all do the same job and are very similar in appearance, they are far from alike. Screens differ in size, shape and composition, all of which affects their ability to render a crisp, clear, accurate image. For example, while one screen might be a champ at displaying images in a brightly illuminated room, another screen might function better with all the room lights off. Increasingly, this ability to combat ambient light has become a focus of manufacturers and should be a key consideration when selecting a screen for your media space.
THX Certified Components
To achieve THX Certification, home theater products must meet or exceed performance requirements under "normal" playback functions.
Home Theater Processor
The Meridian 861 sits at the heart of the ultimate movie system, linking all your audio sources such as Blu-ray disc players, at the highest quality.
Home Theater Speakers System
Although a 5.1-channel surround system, with only one pair of surround speakers, is the most common setup, most newer home theater receivers can power more than a single pair of surround speakers. If you’ve got a larger home theater room, you may buy one or two additional speakers to use as "back surrounds" in a 6.1- or 7.1-channel system.
