I do believe that to make a home livelier and more entertaining, it is best to have a home audio-visual room or the AVR which is separated from the living room. Living room, for me, is not supposed to be the perfect space at home for entertainment but rather than for relaxation and for socialization or simply put, the receiving area for guests. That is perhaps my very reason why I want an AVR at home.
However, as I have mentioned in my other posts, I assume I have shared it already, I and my family are just renting here an apartment. This is a 2-storey 2-bedroom apartment which is approximately 10 x 12 meters floor area. Obviously, adding a space for such room is impossible here in our simple abode. So what I actually am doing now while waiting for the right time to own a house, is trying to complete the components of a surround sound system. Good enough that my hubby is so supportive as he has just recently added a component of this progressive surround sound system project of ours. In fact, he just brought home a 12 in subwoofer. Although we cannot use this one as of the very moment, but at least, and for sure, in the near future, we can complete our surround sound system and enjoy this one so soon.
