  • The home features we know as entertainment centers have been previously called home theaters. These days, they are also called media rooms, but their functionality of providing audio, video, and multimedia experiences has not changed.

    There are various approaches to installing an entertainment system in your home; in fact, you can even set up more than one system in separate rooms, and they can either be networked or independent of each other.

    With all this in mind, here are a few recommendations:

Think about furniture first


  • You have probably seen improvised media centers that are simply a bunch of devices and a tangle of wires running in different directions. In other words, these are systems that provide functionality at the great sacrifice of visual appeal.
  • A true entertainment center will either hide the components and cables or present them very neatly. It really pays to sit down and figure out how the room will be arranged and where devices such as receivers, streaming boxes, computers, video game consoles, and speakers should be placed.

Turn a computer into a media center


  • After figuring out the furniture, seating arrangements, viewing angles, and acoustics, you can start figuring out the hardware, display, and audio components of your system.
  • Choosing a PC as the main controller is a very smart option. You simply can’t go wrong with this option, and you will not have to spend a lot of money unless you insist on very sophisticated hardware.
  • A mini PC, also known as a silent PC because it is not equipped with noisy fans for cooling, will cost less than $200, and it will have enough connectors to support a full home theater.

Wired versus wireless


  • The final consideration is no less important. With the right hardware devices and accessories, you can set up a completely wireless system.
  • However, experts will tell you that wired entertainment centers deliver the best in terms of quality and reliability. So use wired speakers and make sure your remotes are all wireless.
  • This is a good balance for an entertainment center to have. You might as well make wireless whatever you can, but focus on the convenience of wireless remotes, for example.
