ETC Visit


My friend has been asking me about setting up a proper home theater system in his house that he is building. So I told him if he wants something proper I can take him to ETC but his budget for the whole thing has to be between 7’000 KD and 10’000 KD for something proper. And most of that money is going into the projector since he can get some decent equipment with that. And this is something that will easily last him 6-9 years down the line. This is what I have seen from hometheaters in Kuwait and in the US. If your going to do it, then do it proper and do it once.

If you didn’t have a full budget this is what I proposed in the order of importance to the whole setup:

  1. A/V Reciever (7.1 DTS, THX Approved, 1080P, upscaler, HDMI 1.3, the works)
  2. Speakers (Mirage or Meridean top of line)
  3. Projector (at least 1080i HD)
  4. Screen (Retractable)

That is what I came up for him and he gave them the plans. They played for us Fantastic Four on 1080i with the high end projector off of the PS2 upscaled to 1080P through the Sherwood reciever and it looked amazing. It is probably the best I have ever seen, we were all mesmerized by it and I totally think it is worth it if you are into watching movies and spending a lot of time doing that. It couldn’t get any clearer, and the sound was just perfect. You could hear everything just as it is happening and you can’t get enough of it, its fantastic. I forgot we were only visiting.
