Spend Your Date Night In With a Home Theatre System!

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

When it comes to spending time with your significant other, it can be difficult to find a good opportunity! From driving children to after-school activities to picking up the dry cleaning, your day-to-day schedule may be too full, and leave you too tired, to plan for a night out. And even if you do by some miracle find the time, you have a whole new set of challenges to contend with: finding a babysitter, making a reservation, and dealing with the extra expenses. So what is the solution to your date night dilemmas? Your very own home theatre system!

Having your own home theatre makes deciding what to do on date night a breeze. Going out to a movie theatre can put a serious dent in your wallet over time: each individual date can add up with the price of tickets, popcorn, beverages, and of course dinner beforehand. But with a home theatre installation, you only have to deal with the one-time expense, which is really just an investment in your home’s overall value anyway! When comparing the financial side of things, installing a home theatre is a much more budget-friendly choice than dozens of nights out. Having a home theatre of your own also means that you will not have to go through the hassle of finding a babysitter, another saved expense!

Don’t wait for the movie theatres to show a film you’re interested in: watch your favorites anytime with your significant other when you spend a date night in with your home theatre system!

Keeping Your Home Theatre Installation On-Budget

Friday, December 19th, 2014

Updating your home theater system can be an exciting proposition, but it can also get expensive really fast if you don’t know what you’re doing. To get the most bang for your buck to get that surround sound system you really want, we’ve put together a few tips to help you keep your home theatre installation on track.

Home theatre The four key things to consider in a home theatre installation are: acoustics, lighting and furnishings, video, and audio.

 Acoustics: Down to Earth Communications can help you figure out the best way to arrange speakers in a room to take advantage of what you already have in place, while thinking about flooring, ceiling, and walls. The type of material your floors, ceilings, and walls are made of can determine the quality of sound you get from your home theatre system.

 Lighting and Furnishings: Finding the right balance between lighting, comfort, and style can be tricky. Maybe you want your home theatre to look like an old-fashioned movie theatre with curtains – or maybe you want your home theatre to have a stage in front. We can help you draw up a plan for a home theatre that best suits your needs and fits your budget.

 Video: The big debate when it comes to video is whether to go for an HD projector or a flat screen LED television? We can help you do cost-benefits analysis to figure out what is best for your home and your budget. We can also help you figure out what equipment and cables are needed to get that movie-theatre quality for your home.

 Audio: Audio is probably one of the most straightforward components of a home theatre installation – from speakers to cables to a receiver. Fortunately, we have access to all sorts of vendors and suppliers, which means we can get you a great deal on audio equipment without breaking the bank.

Must-Have Accessories for the Perfect Home Theatre

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

You’ve got the essentials all set: the big screen television, the universal remote, the DVD player, and the surround sound speakers. You are almost ready to enjoy your brand new home theatre- almost. Before you kick back to enjoy the latest action flick or romantic comedy, first you are going to want some finishing touches to perfect the room and create an amazing, cinematic atmosphere! Read on to find out Down to Earth’s top recommendations for home theatre accessories.

To create the feel of a real cinema, there are a few details that are absolutely essential to get right. What’s the first thing you head for at the movies? The snacks! Have a popcorn machine, a candy station, and a mini-fridge stocked with ice-cold sodas so that you and your guests can enjoy traditional treats along with your blockbuster! With that taken care of, you can turn your attention to getting the ambiance just right inside your home theatre. Black-out curtains or shades can be adjusted to darken the room while your feature presentation plays, removing the risk of a distracting glare on the screen!

For the Screen…

Make sure that you are getting the most out of your custom home theatre. Not only can you use it to watch your favorite films, but you can also use the screen to watch the big game on TV or the finale episode of your favorite series—or, you can use it to play the latest video games! Set up game consoles from your favorite systems and have a special cabinet just for storing your game so that whenever you feel like it, your home theatre will be ready to play!

Beat Winter Blues with Home Theater Installation in Baltimore!

Friday, December 5th, 2014

As the weather continues to get colder and colder, there are fewer options for your typical after-work activities. The time you might have spent outside playing sports or cooking on the grill is long gone; no one wants to be out in below-freezing temperatures for any longer than they need to be! So what to do instead for entertainment in the winter? It’s time to consider having a custom home theater installed for your Baltimore home! Read on to find out how.
