There is definitely something special about going to the cinemas and watching 4K or ultra-high definition 3D movies on the silver screen with high quality surround sound, comfortable seating and a big paper cup full of buttery popcorn.
But what if you could have that same experience at home?
Not only does a home theatre system make a home that much more luxurious, because it is your own, it doesn’t have to be limited to just watching movies. You can watch sporting events, play games and host movie nights with family and friends all in the comfort of your own home. Home theatres don’t have to break the bank. In fact the most important thing for any home entertainment system is dedicating a space for it.

Home Theatre Projectors and Screens
While a large screen TV may be enough for your daily TV time, watching a good movie especially with family and friends deserves a little something special. Movie projectors and 4K screens create the best environment for an immersive viewing experience. Additionally, most TVs and projectors come equipped with 3D viewing properties. Look for a projector that offers the best features for the best price and comes with good viewing angles and multiple output options. Some projectors also have the option of being mounted on the ceiling and come with all the necessary hardware in the package itself while for others the fittings will need to be purchased separately. Similarly, to get the best TV experience, consider mounting it on the wall.
High Definition Music System
Invest in a good music system which will give you a mindblowing concert-like feel. Make sure you know the significance each of the speaker systems and how their positioning can affect your sound output. For Surround sound speakers, consider investing in wireless speakers that can be mounted on the walls or left freestanding on the floor. Dealing with lesser wires will give you a cleaner look to the room. Invest in a good subwoofer and equalizer system and learn how to use them well. With the right sound system, all your music will sound like liquid gold.
For many people, the most exciting part of the theatre-going experience is when the lights dim before the start of the show. Typically, for a movie night at home, someone has the delegated task of switching the lights on and off as required. However, that will no longer be an issue. Without moving an inch from your sat, you can now switch the lights on and off using our automated lighting system. If the lights are connected to a dimmer switch, the universal remote control can be connected to it and can be used to reduce the light to a minimal for those who do not like to watch their movies in full darkness. The lights can also be programmed to brighten when the movie has been paused or stopped. Decorative colour lights can also be used along the walls and floors for the ultimate dance party setup. Choose from our range of high quality LED and decorative lights for the perfect setting in your home theatre and create an unforgettable ambience for your home system.
