Doug Van Arsdale, owner of Custom Home Theater Speaker System out of Sharpsburg, creates the latter.
Van Arsdale has a background in construction and a knack for electronics.
"I've always been into connecting things and fixing things," Van Arsdale said. "I figured why not integrate my love for electronics and stereo with construction, into a full-time gig."
Since starting the business in 2000, Van Arsdale and his team have created more than 1,000 home theater systems in the Atlanta area.
Some rooms are dedicated private cinemas, where most of the electronics — including the television, video, stereo, lights and even heating and air-conditioning — are controlled by one remote.
Besides installing home theater equipment, Van Arsdale's business also offers interior design, where a decorator helps clients select the best color for the room, seating, whether it be stadium style or a sectional sofa, lighting and construction.
Of course, this all comes at a price. Dedicated theater rooms can range from $12,000 to $100,000.
Peachtree City resident John Hautala hired Van Arsdale to create a combination media and theater room.
The installation included a 50-inch plasma television, drop down 5-foot-by-8-foot screen, plus a closet full of electronics with game equipment such as XBox and PlayStation.
Before work started, Hautala had a particular request.
"One of the earlier requirements was to have one remote that controls everything, from the television to the audio to the video to the lights in the room," Hautala said. "That way I knew my wife would be able to use it, too."
Hautala admits the system wasn't cheap but would rather not divulge the amount.
"Some might say I'm half-foolish for spending that kind of money and I'd agree with them," Hautala said. "But you just do it because you want to."

One of my customer want to renovate his TV room. He want to install a home theater speaker System.
I already installed ceilling speaker in the kitchen, dinning room and the living room. He want in ceilling speaker in that room too. Look for the green circle near the foyer.
My question about rear surround speakers placement:
The room is about 10 by 18. On the room drowing, speakers are in light blue. Should I install on the wall speakers and at what height? Or in ceilling rear surround speakers?
My question about center speakers placement:
We will install an 40" LCD TV over the fireplace. At first i was planning to install the center speaker just over the fireplace, under the LCD. But my client want an LCD wall mount that can pan, tilt, swivel and have some Height adjustment. He want to be able to lower the LCD Panel when not using the fireplace to have a more natural Height.
I don't know if there are wall mount system that can do this? And if yes, when he will lower the panel, the front speaker will get behind the screen. I think that the speaker should be install with the LCD on the wall mount so that both the LCD and the center speaker move the same way.
Any products idea?
