Optimizing your home entertainment systems can seem like a huge task, especially if you don’t want to call in the services of a professional to do it for you. However, following these simple tips, you can enhance your full viewing experience and get the home cinema system you’ve forever dreamed of.
Stop Squinting and Start Enjoying
The most obvious thing to consider is the viewing distance and whether or not you can see the TV from your preferred seated position. The viewing distance can make a massive impact on the quality of your home cinema systemand you can properly re-position your TV by following simple guidelines, for example for a 22” TV screen, the recommended range is 0.9-2.5m away from the screen.
However as everyone’s living room is different, it can often be difficult to abide by these suggested guidelines, so if your living room is a little smaller than the measurements just ensure that you can see the TV from the best angle and the most suitable distance.
When it comes to the different pieces of technology that make up a cinema system, the key thing to remember is adjustment and positioning, you want to make sure everything is set to suit your personal specifications.
Moving on, though many people don’t realize it, your new TV is probably not calibrated to the highest quality settings, so just going through the settings and making sure that the lighting is on the most preferred setting and the colour is as enhanced as you would like it to be can really pay off.
Make Yourself Feel Like a Part of the Action
Sound is the fundamental quality in a home cinema system and the placement of the home speakers is crucial. Ideally, you want to place the speakers where you can hear crisp, clear noise and somewhere that will give you that 3D effect.
In simpler terms, place them in an area where the speakers will make it sound like the movie is right in your living room!
One of the best places to set up these speakers is either side of your preferred seating position, this will not only give the home cinema system a realistic feel, it will also augment the quality of the sound as you are not far away from the speaker itself.
The last step is bass management. Although a lot of bass can seem like a good thing, you don’t want it to drone out all other noise so adjusting the bass speakers so they are not only in the right position around the room, but the settings are also attuned to your specifications.
The bass is important as it will send a rumble through the house every time there is an earthquake on the TV, but you don’t want to overdo it too much as it can ruin the entire experience.
These are just some of the few things that you can do to improve your viewing experience.
