Have the pleasure of upgrading my home theater set up. Want to find a store that specializes in hi-fi and mid-to-high end a/v equipment. I’ve been to syntrend and guanghua but am looking for more and preferably a professional installer.
Any help is greatly appreciated - thank you in advance.
As a side note: is there an enthusiast group any of you are a part of? Let’s share and audition headphones and stuff together!
Edit: I’m specifically looking into projectors / screens / subwoofer / maybe more speakers (7.2 - my body is ready)
The area around Zhonghua Rd and Yanping S. Rd. south of the North Gate is a good place to nose around. There are other stores around as well. One good way is to try to find local distributors on websites of brands you’re interested in.
I love my projectors, but in most Taiwanese rooms, you can get better performance for less with a flat-screen. You also need to consider that projectors require another 100K in room treatments to get the best performance.
They absolutely have center channel and subs designed for home theater. If you want it all in a single box as a system, no they wouldn’t be a good fit. The demo room they had set up for it (there are two, one for audio only and one HT) impressed me.
My home theater has been a constant work-in-progress with upgrades throughout the years. General rule of thumb - spend more on speakers than you would your DAC/amp because that’s where you’ll make the most gainz.
