You've spent a good sum of money on a system and followed all the necessary steps during installation but still feel like it doesn't sound good. Would you then call an expert? I would use the services of a professional if in the long run, I ended up getting value for money.

The problem is that most home theater installers aren't experts. They're usually somewhat technical, but mostly just enough to know basically what to connect and where. Some can do basic calibrations, like setting channel levels. But they're not usually engineers and most aren't particularly knowledgeable in acoustics.

So unless you're just having trouble doing a basic setup, you will want to do some research to find a firm that understands room acoustics.

I agree with you Wayne and most times hiring the services of a firm will cost an arm and a leg. In most instances, I prefer to just search for anything I want on YouTube. There are plenty of tutorials that anyone keen on learning will find useful.
