Choosing The Right Screen

choosing the right screen

Everyone wants a home theater, but not everyone conducts enough due diligence on the subject before entering the marketplace. As a result, they end up with systems that don’t do what they need them to do. Sometimes they end up with systems that are far too powerful than what they really need. A well-informed and researched consumer can avoid all of this. This article will discuss a few common errors in home theater selection in hopes of providing others with the information they need to avoid problems.

One common error is putting together a system that lacks adequate amplification. This is particularly common among those who purchase less expensive systems and then attempt to use them in larger spaces. Often, bargain systems utilize smaller amplifiers that are not able to power speakers adequately to handle larger rooms. An absence of amplification is a common problem for new home theater buyers.

Fortunately, it is one that is easy to avoid. One must simply look not only for a low price tag but for adequate power, as well. Usually the sole cause of this difficulty is the attempt to save a few bucks. Ask a sales associate or a knowledgeable friend about how much power you should really have and take their advice. That small increase in upfront cost will represent a savings over an otherwise inevitable upgrade.

Often, speakers fail to adequately perform once they are brought home. What sounded great in the showroom sounds muddled and weak in the living room. Was the buyer a victim of a bait and switch? Probably not. Far more likely is the prospect that the consumer failed to position his speakers optimally upon setting them up at home.

One must fight the urge to set up speakers based on their aesthetic sense. Speakers are about sound and should be arranged to optimally provide sound for the home theater. Consult the manufacturer’s directions and/or utilize a trial and error strategy to optimally place the speakers. The results of simple shifts in elevation, angle and distance can be remarkable.

Another frequently encountered problem is that of space. Greedy by nature, people often try to fit larger screens in their homes than can really be handled. Usually, the consumer will measure the space to determine what size of screen he or she needs and will buy based on that calculation.

However, that size does not reflect the screen’s casing or the actual footprint of the unit. People frequently underestimate the amount of floor space that will be required and often end up purchasing a screen that is far too big for their available space. A large screen is wonderful in the abstract, but it is nothing less than annoying when one is sitting only a few feet from it and can count every pixel! Take into account the amount of floor space and don’t forget to compensate for the size of the screen’s casing when making a purchase.

Errors like these take place daily as people buy home theaters. Fortunately, all of these miscues are easily avoidable with a little bit of care and attention. Take a few moments to make purchases wisely and conduct sufficient research before entering the store and you can avoid many common problems altogether.

Why allow yourself to suffer with the wrong system simply due to a lack of effort on the front end? A home theater can be a significant purchase and one should embark on that purchase only after having truly determined what they need. Additionally, once the purchase is made, the consumer should take great care in determining how the system can be best installed.

Following these simple guidelines can prevent many home theater frustrations
