Why Stereo Sound Can Be Perfect for Small Home Theaters
We already know what you're thinking, what heresy (not Klipsch Heresy—we’ll get to that in a moment) to suggest that a mere two channels of sound can make a home theater. Throw in the fact that our name used to be Georgia Home Theater, and you might think we’ve gone off the deep end.
All kidding aside, we know many of you two-channel audio enthusiasts in Alpharetta think movies and other content can be just as enjoyable with two channels of good stereo sound versus multiple channels. The other reality is that smaller spaces may not be conducive to numerous speakers, but you still want to enjoy great sound with your excellent picture.
For you home theater diehards that will only accept multichannel audio or bust with your movies, perhaps this blog isn’t for you. However, please visit our home theater installation categories for our many thoughts on multichannel audio. The rest of you, please keep reading!
Check Out The Flagship Theater in GHT Group’s Marietta Showroom
A home theater can be a significant investment. Like a bathroom or kitchen remodel, it can also be a big job. There's a lot that can go into a home theater. There's the screen, the projector, the speakers, the audio receiver, processor or amplifier, control capability, lighting, seating, décor, and more to think about.
Of course, your home theater area might be a setup designed around a living or family room, or it can be a full-boat dedicated home theater in an extra or purpose-built room in your house. Either way, the details must be sweated to make it into a theater experience that feels special. Those details involve the right size and scale for sound and picture, the acoustics, the methods of control, and perhaps how the home theater ties into other smart home features.
It might seem daunting, right? GHT Group is here to help. As our name implies, home theaters are a core competence at our company. To make it easier for customers to see and hear what a home theater setup can be like at your home, we have built one in our flagship theater demo area in our Marietta showroom.
