Is it possible that window panes will break due to loud sounds? I know that wine glasses can be shattered by sound so I'm wondering if this can happen to window panes also.

Most theaters, if not all, have carpeted flooring. Can we have the same sound quality if we place a carpet in our home theater? I'm satisfied with my home theater setup, but I can upgrade.

Does anyone have any experience with Sonos speakers? My father has a few scattered around his condo for music and I love the sound it gives (the speakers are relatively compact and stylish). I was thinking of maybe purchasing some for a home theater setup, which ones would you recommend? I am also open for other brands, I just really like the look of Sonos and they're quite affordable.

For all you old fogies out there.......Remember when the teacher would set up a projector to show something concerning a class project? Do you remember if the teacher made everyone move their desks so everyone would be at roughly the same distance from the screen?

One of my teachers used to do that, and I think it had to do with the throw ratio.

Anyone else remember those "Good Ole Days"?

Retailing for about $1,400, would you buy this? It is made by Samsung. It seems a little steep considering the size. The marketing emphasizes how it can add a visual accent to any room with any decor.

I remember reading about how you can use your phone as a remote for certain gadgets in your home, I just can't recall where the thread is. Can anyone tell me how to go about turning one's smartphone into a remote for my home theater system?

When I bought my first home theater, I started experiencing this after about a week or so. After a long period of trying to understand what the cause was, I decided to switch off the TV after which I unplugged the cable carrying the signal to the TV from the power source, then connected it after about five minutes.

Over the years, I have always used this trick in order to know where the problem lies. In most cases, people assume that it's actually the TV that has a problem, which isn't always the case.

I'm looking at getting a surround sound system for my TV (I know, I'm a little slow in getting updated!) and I can't decide if I want to get a set of 5 or the set of 7. What do you recommend, for just my living room?

Has any of you ever had a problem with the home theater not playing certain audio formats? This can be frustrating at times. I tried to search for converters online but they all seem to require a purchase first.

So I have a home theater that has the smart function and intially, I thought I would be able to access anything on the internet. I normally use an ethernet cable but it seems the only pre-installed app is YouTube. Is there anything else I can add for that matter?
