Amber Technology company logo. Tips to create the ultimate home theatre experience

Australians continue to embrace the convenience of entertainment at home with figures revealing a quarter of the annual internet spend in 2021 was on subscription TV and games.1 Investing in the right home entertainment set-up can mean watching a movie, playing a game, or even streaming music, becomes a far more engaging experience.

However, with so many models and products on the market, shopping for the most suitable audio-visual (AV) solutions can be confusing. Richard Neale from Amber Technology, a distributor of high-end AV brands, provides insights into the must have technologies.

“Most AV systems come with one or more of the latest features to improve the at-home sound and vision experience,” comments Neale. “What each consumer needs will differ according to their budget, the size of their home, and what they enjoy using the AV system for.”

Be immersed in the movie: Invest in an AV receiver with Dolby Atmos Height Visualiser and DTS Virtual:X® technology. “This enables a more immersive listening experience, creating a virtual surround and height effect. It wraps the listener in audio from all directions,” recommends Neale.

For style conscious audio lovers: In-ceiling and in-wall speakers blend into a home’s interior design while producing high quality audio in multiple rooms. “In-ceiling speakers are designed to match light fittings to give a barely-there finish. In-wall speakers can sit behind a wall, providing complete invisibility, while providing a high-quality audio experience. DALI Phantom in-ceiling and in-wall loudspeakers provide high-quality audio while remaining virtually invisible,” says Neale.

Get smart multi-room connectivity: “For homes with multiple TV and audio set-ups or zones, installing a central control hub, such as RTI, provides users with a seamless whole-home solution using an app or push-button remote control,” says Neale. Installing one centralised controller means all devices can be managed by a single app via a smartphone or tablet, eliminating the need for an AV box in each room, as well as multiple wires connected to each device.

Beam it up: Setting up a projector instead of a television can save space and provide the ultimate cinema experience, particularly with a projector that features 4K resolution and is high dynamic range (HDR) compatible. “A 4K projector, such as Optoma’s HD29HDR, is packed with the latest technology and can be used at any time of day. The projected colour is exceptional, and the long lamp life makes it a quality, long term investment. Using a projector that is lightweight, compact, and easy to move around provides users with an exceptional home theatre set up,” comments Neale.

To help you make the best possible choice when shopping for AV equipment, it’s important to consider the equipment features along with your personal listening and viewing preferences. This will ensure you are matched with the most suitable system capable of handling all your home entertainment needs.
