In the age of social distancing and nightly Netflix binging (we recommend you check out Ozark immediately) there is no better time than the present to build your own ultimate home theater — or give an existing one a major upgrade. You could head to your local Walmart, grab a 32-inch screen, a faux leather recliner, and call it day. The better option — if funds permit — is to go all in. Read on for our picks for building the ultimate home theater setup.
