Creating an Experience Through Sound in Your Luxury Home Theater

When we first speak with clients about their dedicated, custom-designed home theater systems in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and throughout the world, the first topic on most people's minds is the visual component. After all, you enter a theater, and the first thing you see is a large screen that fills up the room. They want the experience of immersing themselves in the visuals, with a keen interest in how the theater looks when it’s not in use and the lights are on.

But, if you think about it, what makes the experience so memorable? Without the sound of the waves lapping onto the shore or the leaves rustling in the wind, the pictures can't come to life. As George Lucas said, "The sound and music are 50% of the entertainment in a movie.”

That’s why we’re taking a moment to discuss sound and the tremendous difference that a high quality sound system can make in your luxury home theater.

Add High-Quality Surround Sound to Your Luxury Home Theater Room

If you’re just getting started with surround sound for home theaters, you’ll notice numbers like 5.1.2, 7.1, 2.1, and 9.2. What do they mean? Are speaker companies just trying to be complicated and confuse end users?

The numbers actually represent the amount of speaker channels in your home cinema. In a configuration from 7.2 down, the first number defines how many standard speakers are at ear level. The second number represents subwoofers for low bass notes. In configurations for Atmos or 3D systems, there’s a third number which is the sum of overhead or ‘height’ speaker channels.  

But what does each setup mean, and which is right for your home? We’ll break down what different formats will offer your Fort Lauderdale, FL luxury home theater room.

Upgrade Your Studio with Dolby Atmos Capabilities

upgrade-your-studio-with-dolby-atmos-capabilities

Are You Ready For Your Clients Demanding Immersive Music Mixing? 

The way we listen is changing. Our modern ears demand a more immersive sound, one that places the instruments and vocals in defined three-dimensional space. The movies we watch, the video games we play all put us into the soundscape; we are part of the experience. Music, with a few exceptions, has resisted, holding tight to our outdated stereo channel mentality. 

While 5.1 recordings never quite gained a foothold with the public or artists, the promise of a complete soundscape never diminished. Dolby Atmos is changing how musicians, engineers, and the listening public want to hear music. Streaming services like TIDAL, Amazon HD music currently support the format, with more platforms planning rollout in the coming year. 

The demand for your professional recording studio setup to support Dolby Atmos is growing. Is your Fort Lauderdale, FL location ready?  Perhaps you also have other studios throughout the world: The good news is we operate nationally and globally. Want to learn how the format will get you to the next level?

AWARD-WINNING HOME THEATERS ARE ONE CALL AWAY

LEARN HOW A PROFESSIONAL INTEGRATOR COMBINES RECORDING STUDIO EXPERIENCE AND INDUSTRY-LEADING SMART HOME TECHNOLOGY FOR THE ULTIMATE HOME THEATER.

Movies are a unique medium, one that takes up all the senses and stirs the soul. The film medium has been described as storytelling combined with painting, photography, music, dance, and theater. A film is powerful magic, making us cheer, cry, and laugh -- often all at the same time.

The cinema itself can be thought of as a temple dedicated to the singular act of being transported. The art form deserves more than an insufficient screen with less than stellar sound. Bob Balaban, the actor and producer, sums this feeling up nicely:

“I mean, the whole idea of movies was it was special to go to see - you went to a movie theater to see something that was magical and amazing, in a very special location.”

Why You Shouldn’t Use a Soundbar in a High-End Home Theater

CINEAK-cosymo-fortuny2

For rumbling bass and realistic sound effects, you’ll need better audio.

People are drawn to soundbars for many reasons. For one, they’re a one-piece audio solution that’s quick to install under the TV or projector screen. And they provide more robust sound than a TV’s built-in speakers. They can look cool depending on the TV, final design, and installation aesthetic.  However, it’s best to avoid using one in a high-end home theater design.

While soundbars improve upon TV audio, they won’t provide the immersive wow-factor you desire in a home cinema. It’s best to use a soundbar in the bedroom, kitchen, or other non-primary viewing spaces.

For a home theater, you’d be cutting yourself short not to use a receiver, proper loudspeakers, and a subwoofer for a Dolby ATMOS surround sound setup. As a luxury home theater designer based in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and cities worldwide, we’ll share why you should avoid soundbars and how to experience high-end Dolby ATMOS surround sound in your home.
