While designated home theaters are still heavy hitters in home automation, more homeowners are considering a media room installation as a way to fill the needs and wants of many of their family members. Let’s look at the difference between the two and see if a media room might be the right choice for your home in Heber, UT.

In essence, a media room is a multi-use space. When many people think of designated home theaters, their mind goes to the big screen and plush reclining tiered movie chairs—a windowless, acoustically-treated, luxurious room designed for sound control that offers the greatest cinematic viewing and listening pleasures.
When designing a media room, many turn to oversized sectionals and leather chairs. There might be a piano in the corner or a pool table in the back. And, of course, there’s the ultimate game chair for the expert video-game player and a backgammon or Jenga game awaiting the next competitors.
As you can see, a media room is all about fun and entertainment.
Media room installers take into account ambient light and chair placement when planning the space. Despite its sometimes more open-air quality, a media room can still boast a top-end audio and video experience. A 4K or 8K HDR TV rises from furniture, or a motorized screen and projector descend from the ceiling. In-wall and in-ceiling speakers are hidden from view or, better yet, displayed as beautiful works of art.
If you're not sure which room is suitable for your family and lifestyle, All Metro Tech’s certified experts will be happy to take a look at your rooms and dimensions and give you some ideas based on our years of experience. Whichever type of entertainment room you choose, you can be guaranteed the best-in-class solution and ultimate in luxury because we partner only with audio-video manufacturers who are leaders in their field. Here are just a few examples of the innovative brands we consider partners.
Leon has been building customized speakers by hand since 1995. One example of their leading-edge design is their Ente SoundTile, which combines music with artistic tile designs that create the ultimate architectural speakers powered by the Sonos amp. Instead of hiding speakers in walls and ceilings, homeowners and designers are infusing speakers into the home’s design with works of art created by Korean-Detroit artist Mike Han and fine art photographer Roberto Rabanne. As a result, each speaker looks like a masterpiece.
Other top audio brands we regularly partner with include Sonos and Wisdom. Sonos is globally renowned for its wireless speakers and surround sound that immerses you in the movie experience or fills the air with your favorite tunes. Wisdom, a brand known by audiophiles worldwide, crafts expertly calibrated speakers designed for the dedicated home theater.
We also work with some of the top home automation brands in the country, including Savant, Control4, and Crestron. Choosing the proper home automation setup enables one of your family members to enjoy a TV show while another is playing a video game or set up the media center so that you can watch a few different football games at the same time.
When movie night arrives, one-touch on a tablet, smartphone, or hand-held remote tells the blinds to lower, the lights to dim, and the movie begins. The system delivers crystal-clear audio and impressive high-resolution images that make you feel like you're on the 50-yard line or part of the cast.
