The winners of the high-end home theaters (projects from $75,000+) in this year’s Electronic House Home of the Year Awards
could serve as a primer for creating theaters that balance both flair and fundamentals.
They illustrate when it makes sense to hide speakers behind acoustically transparent screens - and in some cases per the homeowner’s wishes, when it doesn’t.
They show crafty ways of concealing projectors too - unless it’s also a striking showpiece, like the kind SIM2 makes.
They demonstrate the art of using audio calibration software - but also the need for adding acoustical treatment on top of it.
And mostly, they show why there is still a demand for customization and dedicated home theater rooms, whether it’s incredible design work, bulletproof sound isolation, sensor-triggered room functions and more.
