Best Ways To "Show Off" Your Home Theater



showoff.jpgAll those hours spent running wiring and calibrating and arranging and keeping your wife and kids locked out has finally paid off: your home theater is finished. Now what? It's not as though you want to just slide right back into your television and movie watching routine, is it? No, you've got to make that new system sing.
