The Difference Between A Media Room And A Dedicated Home Theater

When thinking about a media room, you automatically think about the versatility that comes with it.

The basement of a home is typically seen as the entertainment hub. This is where we go to relax and find that perfect comfort zone. In many cases, homeowners are being faced with a specific question when it comes to their entertainment: should we choose a media room or a dedicated home theater? They almost seem like the exact same thing at first glance, but a further examination reveals some stark differences between the two.

Benefits Of A Media Room

When thinking about a media room, you automatically think about the versatility that comes with it. A media room is more than just a theater. If you want to watch TV, you can do that. If you want to watch sports, you can comfortably do that too. If you just wanted to listen to music, this may come as a surprise, but you can do that as well.  It’s not specifically created to copy the image and feel of a true cinematic experience like a home theater, but it gives you plenty of options in return. A media room typically uses a high-quality Sony television, rather than a projector. You’ll have flexible seating, meaning you can fill the room with sofas, reclining chairs, bean bag chairs, or really whatever you desire. You won’t be constricted to seating that faces the screen in lines. A media room also gives you a wide variety of streaming options. Through a program like Kaleidescape, you’ll have a full store of entertainment at your fingertips.

The Dedicated Home Theater

The Difference Between A Media Room And A Dedicated Home Theater

The dedicated home theater vs. the media room: what’s the difference?

The dedicated home theater is, well, exactly what it states. It’s a room specifically designed to replicate the theater experience. In a media room, you technically have some freedom to design it with your own vision. With a home theater, those you’ve contracted (the integrators) can perfect the design to give you the best possible product. It’s a bit different from a media room, in that you’ll have a lot of moving parts that need to be coordinated with each other. The best acoustic set up needs to be determined, in addition to the right seating design. With the most efficient options offered by Stewart Filmscreen, you need to figure out the type of screen you want displayed. You also need to make a decision on the speakers you prefer. A dedicated home theater considers everything from lighting, screen, and sound to seating and overall atmosphere. It’s not as much of a social setting like a media room, but it’s a theater in your home (pretty tough to beat that). Choosing to install a dedicated home theater within your home is the elite of home entertainment, allowing your integrator to choose only the best for your home. You will be the first choice to host when it comes to movie premieres!
