Find a Quality Display

Today, you can choose from an impressive array of high-end, flat-screen TVs to transport you into the world of your favorite movies and TV shows. Leading brands like Sony and Samsung offer models with 4K or 8K resolution, smart features, and high-dynamic range (HDR) technology to bring you a stunning display that showcases your favorite content. 

Average sizes range from 55 to 85 inches, so you can pick the size that fits your space. The team at Argentacan effortlessly incorporate a large-screen TV into your living room without disrupting the aesthetic of your interior design.We use hidden technology like mounts, ceiling lifts, mirrors, and artwork to conceal even the largest screens while they’re not in use

If you’re set on the classic theater look and feel, consider a short-throw 4K projector from Sony. A short-throw projector can sit closer to the screen, making it the ideal solution for small to medium-sized spaces. 

Boost the Audio Experience

Even the best TV falls flat when you compare its speakers to a dedicated sound systemWe recommend boosting the audio experience by adding speakers or a soundbar to your home theater setupWe can absolutely install a surround-sound system in your living room with a selection of free-standing speakers or in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. Our team can also select a Dolby Atmos-enabled setup for more dynamic and immersive audio. The beauty of Dolby Atmos is that it doesn’t require a complicated speaker setup  it works with a standard 5.1.2 (five speakers, one subwoofer, and two up-firing units) speaker configuration.

If space is limited in your living room, a single, high-quality soundbar will give your audio the boost it needs.

Determine Your Lighting Needs

Lighting is a critical component of the movie-watching experience. First, we recommend upgrading your existing home lighting to dimmable, LED smart lighting for overhead lights, table lamps, and other lighting fixtures in your living room. With smart lighting, you can create a cinematic atmosphere by dimming the lights slowly as the movie starts and raising the brightness level as a film concludes. 

If you have windows, we can install motorized blackout shades that are easily controllable with your smartphone or a handheld remote. With one tap, you can seal your living room in complete darkness for the perfect, non-disruptive viewing experience.
