Choose Installation Of Home Theater NY with TV
Something’s missing from my TV!
With the proliferation (and affordability) of 5163co.s’ performance-oriented flat screen TVs installations, NY and NJ residents are viewing their favorite movies, concerts, sporting events and performances with more precision and life-like clarity than ever. Over one-hundred and sixty million new flat panel TV installations grace the walls and furnishings of homeowners each year, though there’s an oft-forgotten detail left conspicuously out of those purchases; sound. Immersive, captivating, emotive, engaging triumphant and beautiful sound!
The 5163co. Home Theater NY design, spanning the simple to the extravagant, enhances the viewing experience like nothing else. And with surround speaker systems and components available for every budget and every aesthetic, gone are the reasons new flat TV owners had for not embellishing their purchases with the impactful sonic element of virtually everything they like to watch. Let’s look at some basics that will assist in directing one toward the home theater NY system that compliments the décor, delights the soul, and makes TV installation in New York and New Jersey a complete experience.
What do those numbers mean when you talk about Home Theater ?
Each of these are all commonly used 5.1 sound processes, and you’d be hard-pressed to scope out a surround-sound receiver that didn’t support them. Each and every 5.1 system uses the same speaker channels and configuration, having one front left and one front right, a center channel, two surround channels, and a subwoofer.
This multichannel array is by far the most popular application for home theater NY installation in New York and New Jersey. 5.1 ("five point one") is the common name for a six channel surround sound multichannel audio system. Currently the most commonly used surround process in both commercial cinemas and home theaters, 5.1 uses five full bandwidth channels and one low-frequency effects channel (that’s the "point one"!). When we research, see commercials for, or even read the backs of our DVD and BluRay cases, we often find nomenclature describing Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II, DTS, and SDDS.
7.1 surround sound is the name denoting an eight channel audio system used in home theatre configurations. And while the short answer to “why would I do that?” is “because it’s two better!”, there are remarkably noticeable differences to the overall home theater NY experience. 7.1 adds two additional speakers to the more conventional six-channel (5.1) home theater NY configuration. As with 5.1 surround sound, 7.1 surround sound audio uses the standard front, center, and subwoofer speaker configuration. However, whereas a 5.1 surround sound system combines both surround and rear channel effects into two channels, a 7.1 surround system splits the surround and rear channel information (sound) into four distinct channels, in which sound effects are directed to left and right surround channels, plus two rear surround channels.
In a 7.1 surround sound home theatre set-up, the surround speakers are placed to the side of the listener's position and the rear speakers are placed behind the listener. Still asking “why would I do that?”. With most feature films, TV action dramas, and sporting events taking advantage of surround sound processes such as this, the listener is literally placed “inside” the soundtrack, hearing distinctly the placement and directional travel of sounds and effects present on all we enjoy watching. Additionally, with the advent of Dolby Pro Logic IIz and DTS Neo:X, 7.1 surround sound can also refer to 5.1 surround sound configurations that add two front “height” channels, with speakers positioned above the front speakers, or two front wide channels positioned between the front and surround channels.
I’m still confused!
Don’t be. Simply put, either 5.1 or 7.1 home theater systems are implemented into interiors as easily as a new flat panel TV. The basic requirements are;
1. A Home Theater Receiver – the “traffic cop” of your system, these sleek and remote-controlled components provide amplifier power to your speakers, and direct the dialogue, effects, music, and ambience to the proper speakers in your system. Your TV tuner (cable box, satellite receiver, etc.) will be connected to it, as will any disc player or video streaming device in the system.
2. Five or Seven Speakers – depending upon the configuration (and the amount of space you have), here, the key is placement. Whether the speakers chosen are flush-mount, bookshelf, or floor-standing monoliths, viewers can be magically transported within the soundtrack, allowing immersion and providing impact, effectively “removing” the walls around you, and heightening the home theater experience.
3. Subwoofer – as necessary to a realistic explosion effect as they are to whispered dialogue, these low-frequency speakers (usually amplified) provide authentic presence and thrust to any soundtrack, and turn mere recordings or broadcasts into saturating performances.
I haven’t got the room for all of that!
In more than a handful of home theater applications, especially TV installation in New York and New Jersey, there simply isn’t the desire (or space) for what is commonly required in 5.1 or 7.1 surround configurations. Don’t fret though, for professional integrators and component manufacturers alike have answered the call for home theater arrays that literally contain themselves.
Soundbars (single-cabinet/multi-speaker enclosures) create an acoustics-defying home theater experience in a clean, low-profile component that can mount unobtrusively below your flat screen TV. These speaker arrays are available as static (requiring a home theater receiver) or self-amplified (all-in-one), and have remedied the call for performance-oriented surround sound without infringing upon the aesthetic preferences of many homeowners. And with wireless subwoofers available, these systems virtually hide themselves.
