Delivering Entertainment in Style
Alright, so maybe not everybody is into sports, movies, and video games. But for those of us who are, let's face it, nothing is better than having a home theater system that can "bring the house down". Just imagine you and your friends at your place, screaming at the top of your lungs when your favorite hockey team scores the OT winner; or how about when you beat your best friend for the umpteenth time at Mario Kart for the Wii; or finally, how about that astounding car chase at the end of your favourite Bond movie? Point is, all these great joys in life can be made even better with the right stereo system and home theater furniture. But where do you begin?
First and foremost you can't enjoy your favorite movie, sports game, or whatever it is you want to watch without the television! In today's modern age, your box TV just doesn’t cut the mustard anymore, not unless you want your viewing experience to be bland and in many cases, fuzzy. If you really want to show your friends how to watch a game or movie, you have to upgrade to any LCD or Plasma screen television. To ensure you're getting top of the line equipment, make sure that the screen is at least a 1080P, with HDTV capabilities. This ensures that whatever pops up on your screen is crystal clear and sharp as a knife.
So now that you have an idea as to what type of television will work for you, what's next? That'd be to make sure you have the right home theater furniture accommodate. For example, a quality HDTV should be accompanied by a quality TV stand. Today’s marketplace may make it difficult to find a suitable television stand. However, a good starting point might be the internet. There are many retailers offering literally thousands of options for you, whether you want metal, wood, glass, swivel, corner, TV lift, wall mounted or whatever it is that tickles your fancy. Whichever TV stand you do chose though, remember to consider the following:
The size of your television and if your stand will fit it properly
The weight capacity of your stand – different stands can withhold different amounts of weight, so make sure that your TV isn't too heavy for it
The shelving space – does it have enough room for your stereo's, DVD players or VCR's (heaven forbid), gaming systems, etc? and (d) Where it will go in your home – make sure that measurements are taken beforehand so that you don’t get a television or a TV stand that won't fit in your house.
If you’re looking for high quality theatre furniture at affordable prices, one place you may want to take a look at is Audio-Video-Furniture.com. This site is owned by Cymax Stores, an Internet Top 500 Retailer, and they offer free shipping to the US and Canada on almost everything in stock.

To further supplement your home theater haven, it might be a good idea to make sure you have a comfy sofa or couch, as well as a stylish coffee table. The sofa is there to ensure that your experience is as comfortable as possible. There's no point in watching a movie if you having nothing sit on for two hours. As for the coffee table, really it just completes the look and overall ambiance that you should strive for if you plan to make your home the place to be for fun and excitement.
Finally, make sure you have the right stereo system. Nothing is worse than having an amazing television set with crystal clear picture, if you can't properly hear anything. To fully enjoy your experience in the living room, it is suggested to have a stereo system with many different gauges of sound, including volume, bass, and if possible, surround sound. By doing so, you're ensuring that any sound coming out of your stereo is accompanied with a nice BOOM!
So now you're fully equipped with all the info you need to turn your living room from bland to bam! Remember that if you plan to deliver entertainment to your friends, make sure you do it in style.
