Great home theaters are the ultimate statement that you have arrived. Twenty years ago home audio systems reigned supreme, and nothing of those systems is wasted, only augmented by the addition of large screen video.

Be aware that ultimate home theaters may be had at a cost of a few thousand dollars, to well over several million dollars. Your goal should always be to have the best integrated system, your money can buy.
The ultimate home theater must always begin with the video system. An unhurried search on the internet and home theater magazines will help acquaint you with what features are available, such as 3D and high definition. Be sure that the system you select will work in the room you have available in your home.
If you have a quality audio system, you may only to need to add the surround portion. However, be sure the new equipment blends well with your present system, or you may have to build from scratch.
This is where you can go all out with looks and atmosphere. Some may prefer the old-time grand theaters, while others a sleek, modern style. This is where the hardness, or softness, of the room and its furnishings must be considered, as they can enhance, or degrade, the audio experience.
We have all come to enjoy the comfort of the modern theater seating, and your ultimate home theater should not disappoint your family and friends. Give them the same enjoyment without gum stuck under the seats, or sticky drink spills on the floor or upholstery.
