Are you thinking of investing in a home theater system, but not sure how much to spend? Don’t worry—you are not alone. As your local source for home theater installation in San Bernardino County, CA, we have people coming in every day who are just trying to get a feel for how much a good home theater system will cost them.
Unfortunately, there is no magic number when it comes to pricing a home theater system. There are a lot of variables involved, including what you are hoping to get out of your system and the quality level you are looking for. A home theatre system can cost thousands, if you’re willing to take it that far, but you can get a more than adequate system to meet your needs for a few hundred dollars. So, how much should you spend on a home theater system? The answer all depends on the components you want to install:
- The television: At the heart of every home theater system is the television (or in some cases a projector). How much you spend on your TV will depend on your room size and what you’re looking for. For example, a 32-60 inch plasma or LCD flat-panel TV could cost you anywhere from $500 to $10,000. The cost will really depend on the type of TV you want and the size of your space. Then there are other variables, such as whether or not you want a smart TV or a curved screen. Once you determine the needs of your space, you can better determine how much you want to spend on a TV.
- The audio: It’s the audio system that transforms simply watching TV into a true home theater experience. When it comes to audio options, there are a lot of factors to consider when determining how much you should spend. You can get a quality 5.1 surround system for a few hundred dollars, but once you start getting into the audio extras, such as subwoofers, power amplifiers and even turntables, things can start to get more expensive. Deciding on what audio system is best for you can seem overwhelming at first, but as your local experts in home theater installation in San Bernardino County, the team at JDS Systems can help you determine what type of sound system and accessories will best meet your vision and budget for your home theater system.
There are other home theater items that don’t fall into the visual or the audio components of the home theater system, like cinema seating or Internet media access devices. But the majority of the cost will be determined by the TV and audio system you decide to get. If you’re thinking of installing a home theater system, but are not quite sure how much to spend, come in to JDS Systems. We’ll be happy to go over the options with you and help you design a home theater system to meet your needs and determine what will best work with your budget!
