Many of us are used to the big screen experience, whether at the movies or a friend’s house, so it’s no surprise that more people than ever are excited at the prospect of including a home cinema as part of their home projects.
Sound & Image can help you ‘fill’ a dedicated room with the best audio visual equipment to deliver all of this entertainment – somewhere the family can come together and take an evening to unwind from their busy lifestyles.
As a Home Cinema, it’s vital you get everything right when it comes to the equipment. Decide on a suitable sized TV or even a projector. You don’t have to choose a humongous screen for effect – make sure it is in proportion to the room, and where you will be seated. Once you’ve decided on the screen, it’s time to move on to the next vital element of the home cinema experience – the SOUND.
