3 Reasons Why It’s an Excellent Time to Build a Custom Home Theater


Enjoy a True Cinema Experience at Home

Have you always dreamt of having your own home theater? It has always been a relatively big project and involved a significant investment, which is why many people put it off to a later time. While a custom home theater may still be a weighty project, there has never been a better time to build one. 

What’s different today than in previous years? Several trends have made it easier for people to enjoy more high-quality entertainment than ever at home, be it movies, shows with film-level production standards, sports, video gaming, and more. The latest audio and video technology allows you significant design freedom, from a traditional theater to a more multi-purpose media space. 

Let's explore why now is the perfect time to build a custom home theater in your Reno, NV home.

Big Screens Made Easy

A traditional home theater screen used to involve a ceiling or back-wall mounted projector and a large screen. If you envision a cozier home theater, today’s screen technology offers additional options. New flat panels are now available up to 100 inches in size, which once was only possible with a projector. Ultra-short-throw projectors can project a screen up to 120 inches in size with easy installation mere inches from the screen, excellent for a medium media room/home theater space. Of course, for a large and cinema-worthy experience, Sony projectors can display up to a 300-inch screen with multiple format sizes to accommodate widescreen movies and other content with sharp 4K resolution and brilliant HDR color and contrast. 

Big Sound in Many Forms

While we recommend a traditional multichannel audio system with all separate components, a rich surround sound experience is possible with smaller, less complicated options. For an intimate theater setup in a smaller room, modern soundbars like those from Sonos can deliver a convincing surround sound experience with minimal complexity. Today's architectural speakers can provide the same performance levels for theater sound as their freestanding counterparts. You can also go in-between, choosing an AV receiver with integrated amplifiers and a combination of freestanding and architectural speakers, depending on your preferences and sense of style. A custom home theater is just that; home cinema your way.

A Wealth of Content

One of the developments of the past few years, partly fueled by the pandemic and technology, was a torrent of content that became available for home streaming. Many studios have released films for only limited engagement in commercial theaters, making them available quickly at home. That means that first-run films are more widely available shortly after release, making the case for a home cinema even better. Couple that with the huge catalog of shows and movies, both new and older, from Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, HBO Max, and much more, who needs to go to the movies? Plus, your sports will never look better, and the new video games take full advantage of the latest audio and video technologies for mind-blowing experiences.
