Chapter 5. Setting a Budget > Establish Your Priorities

Establish Your Priorities

Think for a second about your ultimate home theater. Do you see a huge television? Maybe some incredible floor-standing speakers? Individual preferences are a key factor in deciding how to “divvy up” the budget. Do you want to spend a large portion of your budget buying that magnificent, big-screen television, or take advantage of your current television while building a sound system to be envied? Is big, theater sound more important than a huge television monitor? Does watching sporting events on a huge television monitor excite you more than incredible sound? Is shaking the pictures off the wall your only concern? You need to establish which items of your home theater system are to be more heavily weighed in the budget.

We will now build two hypothetical systems. One system puts more emphasis on the audio portion of the system; the other puts more emphasis on the video aspect of the system. Keep in mind that both systems stay within our $3,000 budget.
