Home Theater Enthusiasts

  1. Revolution Home Theater Seating - RowOne Revolution Home Theater Seating - RowOne
    97% of 100
    Regular Price $1,700.00 - $6,800.00 $1,495.00 - $5,980.00

The Revolution is not your typical seat with a flat bottom & back. It has sculpted sides on both the seat & back that cup your body, much like the seats in a luxury automobile. You can purchase a single chair or group several together to build a custom row with a variety of configurations. You might even just gift this chair to yourself, so the whole family can recline, relax & snack without worries. The "crumb catcher" between the bottom & back of the chair has your back for the easiest cleaning.

No matter how great your home theater is, if you do not send it the best source material, you will never know how good it can really look and sound. Don't settle for compressed audio and video via streaming when you want to experience all your system has to offer. Kaleidescape is by far the best way to enjoy the latest movies. They obtain a bit perfect copy of the film from the studios, then you buy it and download it. The system is not inexpensive, but the best never is. Plus the interface and ability to create scripts of movie clips for showing off your theater to your friends and family is just so cool!

Upgrade Your Cinematic Experience

  1. Sony VPL-XW5000 Laser Projector angle view Sony VPL-XW5000ES Native 4K SXRD Laser Projector
    100% of 100

Sony's new VPL-XW5000ES is a great choice when you are ready to make the move to a true 4K HDR capable projector that also has an incredible video processor. For a real 4K unit, it is budget-friendly and with its laser light engine will give you a beautiful bright image for up to 20,000 hours! If you have an older theater with a 1080 or 1080p projector upgrading to this model will make your movies come to life.

The Epson LS-800 is a new breed of short throw projectors that let you bring the immersive experience of a 120" picture to a typical living room. If you enjoy Sunday Ticket with your friends, imagine how amazing 4 games at once will look on a 120" screen! The ambient light rejecting screen lets you leave the lights on too. Pair this up with our Heco speaker package and one of our recommended home theater receivers and your game day will be the best on the block!

The JVC DLA-NZ7 is going to check off a lot of boxes for someone looking for a great home theater system. At 2,200 lumens with a beautiful and long-lasting laser image, that already puts it ahead of most. When you add to that JVC’s Frame Adapt HDR system, 8K e-shift, an all-glass lens, HDR10+ support, and industry-first high-speed HDMI inputs, it is just an astounding value.

Enhance Your Sound

  1. Heco Home Theater Package w/ Aurora 700, Sub 30A, Center 30, Aurora 300 HECO Home Theater Package

    From $1,899.00 Regular Price $2,715.00

    To $2,790.90 Regular Price $3,819.90

The German engineered Heco speakers offer some of the best home theater value in the world. When we tested them, we thought they should sell for twice what they do! Now you can save even more on a bundle of perfectly matched home theater speakers to take you home theater system to a whole new level of sound. We know you will be as impressed with Heco as we were!

Most rooms we see have too many reflective surfaces, which makes it harder for our brains to pick out the small details in the sounds. Upgrading to Vicoustic acoustic panels will not only help your music lover or movie buff tame the reflections, these will help them understand the dialog & hear the softer details that draw them deeper into the experience.

  1. SVS SB-2000 12" Compact Sealed Subwoofer - Premium Black Ash - angled front view without grille SVS SB-2000 12" Compact Sealed Subwoofer - Premium Black Ash
    Special Price $599.00 Regular Price $700.00

The most popular subwoofer ever from SVS is back for a limited time by popular demand at a great sale price. This little guy is only about a 15" sealed cube but has a very long throw 12" driver that has bass with muscle. This is one of the best-rated subwoofers ever and at this deal, buying two is a smart move!

  1. Arcam AVR11 Receiver, front top angle Arcam AVR11 AV Receiver
    100% of 100

When the sound of your home theater and the ability to upgrade is the most important factor, the Arcam AVR11 is a beautiful choice. Its massive power supply and Class AB amplifiers deliver the sound you would expect from separate components. The built-in ESS audiophile level DACs cost far more than what you find in most receivers, which again, give you better sound. Add in the fact there are seven powered channels on board, preamp outs for 12 channels, plus built-in Dirac Live room correction and it is easy to see why this is the choice of people serious about better sound.

At Audio Advice we love JBL Synthesis and the SDR-38 is the best-sounding all-in-one receiver we carry. It uses Class G power for all seven channels and has Dirac Live with JBL enhancements for even more fine room tuning. Future expansion is no problem with 16 processing channels on board and 4, yes, 4 independent subwoofer outputs. If you are moving up to JBL Synthesis speakers for your home theater, the SDR-38 is the ultimate receiver to drive them with.

Anthem receivers have always been an Audio Advice favorite for their great sound, build quality, and ARC room correction. For those of you who want the fully immersive experience of 11-channel Dolby Atmos but do not want to go to separate components, we can not think of a better value than the MRX 1140. You even get 15.2 channels of processing for future expansion and two independent subwoofer outputs with amp matrixing should you add more channels later.

When the Onkyo TX-RZ50 first came out, everyone ranked it as the best value home theater receiver on the market. Getting 9 powered channels for full-blown Dolby Atmos plus Dirac Live room correction was just unheard of at this price. These have been impossible to get, but we finally have some in stock. If you have an older receiver and want to move up to Dolby Atmos without breaking the bank, this one is a no-brainer!

Media Room Upgrades

This ultra-convenient system uses Sony’s advanced 360 degrees spatial sound mapping to create a sense that 12 “phantom” speakers are in the room from just 4 physical speakers — creating an exhilarating experience that comes pretty close to that of a 12 channel system! It has the easiest setup of just about anything we've tested. You'll just want to pair this with Sony's SA-W5 wireless sub to really feel the impact & slam on special effects.

  1. Sony HT-A7000 Dolby Atmos Soundbar, front high angle Sony HT-A7000 7.1.2 Dolby Atmos Soundbar
    Special Price $1,198.00 Regular Price $1,398.00

Everyone likes having a system they can grow into or add onto as needed. The Sony A7000 is just that. It delivers a true 7.1.2 surround sound experience from just the bar & nothing else, but being able to expand this to 9.1.2 channels of Atmos when you add the optional wireless speakers is really cool! Some people acquire more room later to accommodate the extra boost in performance — so, it is really cool Sony made the A7000 so expandable.

  1. Devialet Dione Dolby Atmos Soundbar, angled view in horizontal configuration Devialet Dione Dolby Atmos Soundbar
    93% of 100

This has to be the most unique soundbar we have ever seen. Devialet is known for some of the best audio tech on the planet. They applied what they learned with their Phantom speakers to create a soundbar that provides room filling bass that belies its compact size. Dolby Atmos effects will fill your space and the clarity you hear in voices from their patented dome technology driver is just incredible. Plus it just looks super cool!

  1. Sonos ARC Soundbar Sonos Arc Dolby Atmos Soundbar
    99% of 100

The Sonos Arc has set the bar in terms of immersive Dolby Atmos sound for the smart-soundbar category. With 11 speakers inside, the Arc is capable of filling a room with premium Dolby Atmos surround sound. Plus, with Sonos's special Speech Enhancement tech, Trueplay room calibration & multi-room connectivity, the Arc will let music lovers dip their toes into Dolby Atmos with whole-house music coverage that will expand the holiday cheer throughout the home.

  1. Klipsch Cinema 1200 Dolby Atmos Sound Bar Surround System Klipsch Cinema 1200 Dolby Atmos Sound Bar + Surround Sound System
    83% of 100
    Special Price $1,424.00 Regular Price $1,899.00

The Klipsch Cinema 1200 stands out as a complete surround sound package that will make a fantastic gift the whole family can enjoy in the living room together for the holidays. You get 5.1.4 channels of Dolby Atmos with a premium soundbar, a 12-inch down-firing sub & rear speakers made exclusively for the Cinema 1200. Plus, Klipsch doubled down on performance by using horn-loaded tweeters called the Tractrix® Horn — also found in Klipsch’s most expensive speakers! Cinema 1200 is Klipsch's best soundbar package for music & movie watching with the family this holiday season.

  1. Sony BRAVIA XR X95K 4K LED TV, front view Sony BRAVIA XR-X95K 4K HDR UHD Mini LED TV (2022)
    Regular Price $2,798.00 - $5,498.00 $1,998.00 - $3,998.00

Sony’s new X95K models incorporate a new super dense panel of Mini LEDs paired with the XR Backlight Master Drive.  This new tech uses thousands of tiny LEDs for an amazingly clear image.  When this is combined with their XR processor you get even brighter highlights and more natural skin tones.  HDR just looks incredible on these new TVs.  We also love Sony’s new X-Anti Reflection surface which greatly reduces glare.  All of these new technologies make the X95K models the best value in the Sony line.
