Home theatres: they’re a place of comfort, relaxation, and second-to-none viewing experiences. More and more, homeowners are coming to realise this, as the home theatre movement takes off. And what’s not to love? You can view all the latest releases from the comfort of your own well-appointed and comfortable room. But, to get the most out of your experience, you’ll need to keep up with the gadgets.
Home theatre components are getting more and more advanced, which means some of the older models are struggling to keep up. So how do you know when it’s time to upgrade your home theatre? Well, there are a few signs – that’s why we have made a list of 5 reasons to upgrade your home theatre.
Have you got mismatched speakers?
For most audio visual enthusiasts, the home theatre is a work in progress. Over time, you collect more new and exciting components. And that’s a great way to develop an extensive home theatre system. But it also means that some of your components will be outdated by others. For the best home theatre experience, it’s important to keep everything at roughly the same level – especially speakers.
If you’re currently running a few different models of speaker, you could be missing out on the truly immersive experience that makes home theatres so great. Our advice: upgrade your home theatre system to get all your speakers at the same level.
Is your amp powerful enough?
Different speakers perform differently – that’s probably something that you’ve come to realise over time. But there’s one thing that can make even some underwhelming models of speaker really shine: the amp. The amplifier is the powerhouse behind the speakers in your home theatre system. You may not realise it during the more routine scenes of a film. However, when those intense action scenes drop, you will be grateful for a premium amp – it really does help your speakers draw the power that they need. That’s why, if your amp is struggling, we suggest that you upgrade your home theatre and get a new one.
Sometimes, the best reason to upgrade your home theatre is comfort – luckily, it’s pretty simple!
So far, we’ve mainly covered the tech side of things. And that’s hardly surprising; when you hear home theatre upgrade, your mind probably turns straight to the components. But there are other ways to upgrade your home theatre. One of the best upgrades that we can recommend doesn’t cost a cent. All it requires is a bit of planning and some creative thought. We are talking, of course, about your home theatre’s layout.
Every room has an optimal home theatre layout. This takes into account acoustics, light, and comfortable viewing angles. Our advice: spend some time in your home theatre and work out the ideal layout for everything. The differences will amaze you!
Like we said before, not all home theatre upgrades have to be big. One of the more overlooked aspects of home theatre is the connecting cables. HDMI cables can actually differ in quality, and some will offer you far better results than others. That’s why we recommend chatting with your AV experts. They will be able to recommend a good connection for your home theatre upgrade.
Deep impact sounds
Finally, let’s talk bass! Bass is what really makes those deep-impact sounds come to life. And more often than not, those sounds are the driving force behind all good action scenes. If you’re finding that your home theatre isn’t putting out a reverberating bass, it might be time for a home theatre upgrade.
