Where to spend your money when buying a home theater?

You are finally going to finish that basement that has been just sitting there for all these years.  You want to turn that scary dungeon into a theater that will rival your local cinema.  You want to be able to watch "Cars" with your boy and see his eyes and ears perk up when the THX intro fills the room with light and sound.  You are ready to pull the trigger but you don't know where to focus your hard earned cash.  This is a question that a lot of people have and you might be surprised on what the answer is....

Speakers, Screens, Amplifiers and Remotes...

Wait, not the projector?  Not the processor?  Not the cables?  No!  If you have to decide between going with a down grade on your audio processor (receiver) or your amplifier, you get the less impressive processor.  Here's why.

Speakers and Amplifiers:  A good one of these 50 years a go, is still good today.  If you spend a good chunk of your coin on these two items you will have years of high end sound no matter what source you are plugging into them!

Screens:  This is what you are seeing!  A good screen can make a OK projector look fantastic (Once Calibrated).  But A good projector can look horrible on an OK screen.  Remember that you are watching the images reflected of the screen, not the projector!

Remotes:  This is what you will be using the most!  Spend the cash and get a good universal remote and most importantly, get it programmed by a pro!  This will save you (and your family) many headaches.  And it will ensure that everyone in the family can actually operate and enjoy the system!

Now you have your Home Theater installed and you ready to watch your first movie with the fam......WAIT!  Make sure to have it calibrated!  Have the display calibrated by an ISF certified calibrator.  Have the surround sound calibrated by a HAA certified calibrator.  This will ensure that you are getting the absolute best video and audio that your system can produce.  A calibrated system that cost $10k can blow away an uncalibrated system that cost 10 times as much!  

It doesn't matter if you are a DIYer or you are going to hire someone to design and install your Home Theater.  If you remember where to spend your money your chances of being happy with your system increases exponentially.  As always, we are here at JBM Audio to answer any questions you might have.  Enhancing Reality Through Home Theater!!!
