What Are the Best Uses for Your Home Theater System?

What Are the Best Uses for Your Home Theater System?

A home theater system is a movie lover's dream. You get to enjoy your favorite films in the best quality available without having to deal with long lines, stale popcorn or freezing temperatures. What if you haven’t gone to a theater since the Godfather came out? It doesn’t matter. A room optimized to get the most out of your high-end audio and video technology can have many purposes. Whether you want to enjoy a movie or watch the Bears with friends in your Glencoe, Illinois home, a private theater is the right choice for your family.

Invite Friends Over to Watch the Big Game

While home theater systems are designed with movies in mind, they've become increasingly popular with sports fans. Even the most die-hard fans will admit it’s better to watch a game –especially football—from home than at the stadium. You get close-ups of the action and replays on controversial plays. A private theater takes it a step further by creating an immersive experience that makes you feel like you're in the stadium while enjoying the perks of watching from home.

Install a surround sound system that booms audio from the front, back, side and even top of the room. From every corner, you can hear fans cheer and hear the power behind every hit. Older sports fans remember the pains of pre-HD days when it was hard to see even the numbers on the back of jerseys. With a large 4K Ultra HD display, you'll be able to see the details down to the millimeters to judge if, in fact, that was a catch or not.

Enjoy Theater Quality Without the Hassle

That same 4K display and surround sound is precisely optimized for movies. With Dolby Atmos technology you get realistic audio that transports you into the fantasy world of your choice. To get the full experience, we can install a projector-and-screen system. Depending on the needs of your space, we’ll get you the right screen to protect your images from glare if you’re not in a light-proof room. 

Recreate Your Favorite Concerts

Many high-end audio manufacturers –including KEF and Pioneer—offer home theater solutions. Just like you can recreate a cinema or stadium, you can create a personal concert hall in your home. Through an audio video system, we link various sources –from turntables to media libraries—to your theater, so it's easy for you to pull up your favorite music and immerse yourself in sound. 

Audiophiles can also take advantage of the latest video technology. Recently, a live Muse concert was the first recorded in 4K and broadcast in theaters. This trend is sure to continue with musicians worldwide, with recordings made available for home viewing.

Immerse Yourself in a TV Marathon

We can also link your home theater system to your favorite TV sources and make them easily accessible from a tablet, touchpad or smartphone. Binge-watching has never been so easy. Incorporate your favorite streaming services, such as Netflix or Hulu Plus, into your Control4 smart home system, so they’re easy to access.
