Surround Sound System Essentials for the California Home Theater Enthusiast

Experience Breathtaking Sound with Dolby Atmos Audio in Your La Jolla Home

Surround Sound System Essentials for the California Home Theater Enthusiast

Along with 4K UHD, Dolby Atmos is taking the home theater industry by storm. In the past, you could only experience this incredible surround sound system in a commercial theater. However, today with the right equipment and configuration, you can enjoy surround sound of the highest quality in your La Jolla, California home. Whether you would like us to install a Dolby Atmos system in your living room or in a fully dedicated, custom home theater, One Touch Living has all of the essentials you need for a breathtaking home entertainment experience.

Essential #1: Dolby Atmos Home Theater Products
 
To enjoy this exclusive technology, you need to have specific components and products that are compatible with a Dolby Atmos system. One Touch Living is a certified dealer of spectacular audio brands like McIntosh that deliver the best in home theater audio. Their MX160 processor supports object-based audio formats including Dolby Atmos, and their speakers can be installed in the ceiling so the sound can bounce back to you and create realistic sound. Typically for a Dolby Atmos system, you’ll need a 5.1.2, 7.1.2 or 9.1.2 channel set up.  Placing two speakers on the ceiling will deliver good performance, but four are recommended to give you the most precise and dynamic sound. You can re-create a professional cinematic experience at home with various amounts of speakers, the more the better. The set-up you choose, whether it’s 5.1.2 or 9.1.2, will determine how many subwoofers and upward-firing speakers you will need to create the lifelike sound you are aiming for. Our team can help you select the right system for your particular space, preferences, and budget. 
 
Essential #2: Dolby Atmos Enabled Content
 
While you can watch any movie you own in your Dolby Atmos home theater, only certain Blu-rays have sound mixed in this special format. So to fully-enjoy this technology, you’ll have to purchase Dolby Atmos movies, and exciting news is that many recent releases are currently available for you to take home now. “Mad Max: Fury Road”, “American Sniper”, and “Unbroken” are all films ready for you to experience at home right now. 
 
Essential #3: Large Flat-screen TV or Screen
 
Once you have the surround sound system in place, and a library of movies to choose from, all you need is a flat-screen TV or projector. An HD TV will work well with Dolby Atmos, but we can also upgrade your home theater system to 4K. Ultra-High Definition TVs and projectors deliver picture that is four-times higher than HD, and give more vivid colors and depth. We can install the projector for you, and hang your TV. Our team is adept at arranging all of your technology correctly to optimize your entertainment experience. 
 
Once we have provided these essentials for your home theater, all that’s left are the finishing touches. Custom theater seating, sound proofing, mobile controls, and smart lighting will make your theater look and feel more luxurious.
