How You Can Bring Hidden Technology to Your Home Theater Setup
You Don’t Have to Sacrifice Ideal Interior Design for Home Cinema Technology
You can’t always place home theater systems within a dedicated cinema.
Sometimes, you might need to house a home cinema setup within a hybrid media room or perhaps your living room or family room.
In these cases, you might feel like you need to compromise your preferred interior design to accommodate for theater technology – such as speakers, widescreen TVs, projection screens, and more. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Below, we reveal how you can include hidden technology throughout your Lakeville, Minnesota home theater setup without affecting the overall auditory or visual experience.
In a typical home surround sound system setup, you might notice that speakers sometimes are out in the open. They risk being knocked over by pets or children, and if they’re mounted to your walls, they could distract from your interior design.
But did you know that you can include hidden speakers in your home theater setup – speakers that produce top-of-the-line sound quality while being entirely out of view?
Sonance, our leading partner for high-end audio, features an entire line of speakers dedicated for placement in walls and ceilings.
The Invisible Series is designed for versatile application, only 2 inches in depth and built for installation within as little as 1/8-inch of flexible material – making it the perfect addition to any space.
Each speaker not only has a 170-degree sound field, meaning you will be able to experience more three-dimensional audio in a multi-speaker setup, but they also are built so they can remain entirely hidden from view in your walls or ceilings.
Sonance Invisible Series speakers are finished with the surrounding material of your wall or ceiling – no matter the substance or color. That way, they seamlessly blend into your home’s interior design.
Best of all, your audio quality will remain unaffected. Sonance speakers are known for their best-in-class performance. The brand’s Invisible Series is no exception to the rule.
TV or Projection Screen Concealment
Perhaps the most eye-catching component of any home theater system is the screen.
When not in use, however, you might be looking at a giant black or white screen. While that isn’t a big deal if your cinematic setup is hidden away in a dedicated theater, it could be a nuisance if you place it in a more hybrid space.
Luckily, however, there are plenty of TV or projection screen concealment methods you can choose from.
For example, you can include a motorized concealment mechanism that will lift your screen from the floor or lower it from the ceiling with just the press of a button. Or you can use an artwork panel to conceal your screen while not in use, only for it to slide away when you’re ready to watch a movie.
You also have the option of including a brand-new TV that features built-in hidden technology.
Our leading partner for televisions, Samsung, produces The Frame, a 4K Ultra HD TV that launches into “Art Mode” when you aren’t watching. You can choose from 100 works of art that you can feature on your 55- or 65-inch screen or upload your own artwork directly from your mobile device.
Samsung’s brand-new line of QLED TVs, which range from 55 inches to 82 inches, also features built-in ambient mode, which allows you to choose personal photos or preselected artwork that you can showcase on the screen.
That way, you won’t have to stare at a black screen while you aren’t using it. Instead, it can effortlessly complement your home’s interior design.
