What is Best for Your Home, a Private Theater
or a Media Room? Let’s Compare! 

A private theater is a dedicated room specifically designed to deliver the ultimate experience—superbly better than what a public cinema or stadium can offer. It is a customized space that delivers subtle audio nuances and stunning, lifelike video. Considerations include:
  • Isolation from outside noise
  • Lighting that can be controlled   
  • Acoustics
  • Seating
  • Sightlines
A private theater transports you and your family into the movie, concert, and program without any distractions (e.g., someone obstructing your view, faulty sound equipment, people talking and walking around, uncomfortable seats, water flowing through pipes or a loud HVAC system). A private theater requires the expertise of a professional and experienced team: a theater designer, architect, interior designer, contractor, audio/video specialist, and YOU. When completed, your private theater becomes a special place where movies, concerts (better than front row seats), and sporting events become memorable experiences.

Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, and Google want to create a better user experience for the gazillions of folks walking around with their OSs and voice controls. They take no responsibility for any mischief that may arise from said changes, however.  

You know how often platforms change, and each time is an opportunity for some level of disaster. When was the last time your phone updated and created a problem or two? 

It’s the same with your home automation system manufacturers, remote control company, or music app. We’re all just an update from catastrophe… in a first-world-problem sense, of course. When the status quo is maintained, we’re all fine.
