Buy in Person from Electronics Boutiques

An electronics boutique offers the advantage of in-person tryouts without many of the downsides of a larger chain store.

Most home theater enthusiasts realize that chain stores [Hack #3] rarely cut it, for either quality or selection. If you want more than a “home theater in a box,” you’re going to have to spend some money, and in that case, you deserve more than a too-bright, too-crowded chain store. In these cases, an electronics boutique is ideal.

Boutique stores are smaller stores, often on a side road, that specialize in home theater. You’ll have to look for them; they often don’t advertise as much, or have as much visible presence, as the Best Buys and Circuit Cities of the world. However, if you find a good boutique, you can easily become a customer for life.
