7.1 Surround Sound Installation from AV-Setup Inc.

We at AV-Setup believe that a true movie experience, known as a home theater, requires 7.1 digital surround sound.  Surround sound is a part of a home theater experience and is a method for enhancing the sound reproduction quality of an audio source with additional audio channels from speakers that surround the listener (surround channels), providing sound from a 360° radius in the horizontal plane (2D), which is not like the screen sources where you strain to hear from the center front of the source from which the sound originates by leaning forward.  The surround sound encompasses the whole room and encircles the listener, making him or her feel like they are being IN the movie itself.  They don’t have to strain their ears to hear what is going on in the movie.  They just sit back, relax, and enjoy what they are watching without focusing too much on one spot of the room for acoustical feedback. How it works with AV-Setup, the home theater installation company, is that after you set up 7.1 Surround Sound installation appointment, our technicians will come to your home ready for the installation.  They will unpack your surround sound system and arrange the receiver and speakers.  After placing the speakers strategically throughout the room, they will then run the wires from the receiver to the speakers and connect them to the speakers.  Then comes the installation of the speakers themselves.  The technicians will connect the speakers to the mounts.  The two front speakers will be mounted at about ear level when you are seated.  The surround speakers should be a foot or two above that. Just as in home theater installation process, the 7.1 Surround Sound installation requires that our technicians test the system to make sure it works without trimming any speaker wires until you have tested and are satisfied with the placement of all of the speakers; you may need the extra length if you decide to adjust a speaker’s location. After the installation is done, AV-Setup specialists will do some spackling if necessary to patch up any holes or deformities which were produced during the installation.  Sanding and painting are not provided.  Our professionals will leave your space looking neat and organized, the same way they found it, only now you will have the 7.1 Surround Sound System in place for your acoustical pleasure. The cost of this installation is $670 and takes approximately 3 to 6 hours.  Be prepared to give this much time to our installers and provide them with a bit of extra time should they require it to complete the job. Hanging of your TV on the wall is not included in this service.  Also, we do not connect the Audio Video Receivers under the 7.1 Surround Sound installation.  Moreover, the speakers themselves and mounting brackets are also a separate purchase.  AV-Setup provides a wide selection of brackets and speakers, but they must be acquired and paid for separately.  Please contact AV-Setup, the home theater installation company, at 646-736-0855 for more information on this matter.
