Create the perfect sports viewing set-up at home


(StatePoint)When it comes to watching the game, the next best thing to the stadium can be your home. And sometimes home viewing can be even better. This season, take your spectating more seriously by bringing your entertainment center to the next level.

Whether you’re hosting the whole crew or just watching the game solo, these tips can make you feel like you’re really there:

Food and Drink
Replicate the ballpark or arena with the right food and drink. Whether you go with classics like peanuts and Cracker Jacks, or you serve the updated gourmet fare found at many stadiums today, give your guests something delicious to snack on while cheering for their favorite team. Serve up frothy drinks and some team spirit in etched glasses with the team logo.

Consider creating a satellite kitchen or beverage area in your entertainment room. This way, you don’t have to wait until the commercial break for a refill.

Some avid fans even set up popcorn carts and turnstiles in their viewing rooms to replicate the stadium feel.

Upgrade Your View
You don’t need to pay through the nose to do better than the nosebleed section. The best seats for never missing a play can be right at home.

Replace an ordinary TV with a projector for a larger viewing area. For example, consider Casio’s new lineup of LampFree projectors. A LampFree projector generates high brightness, without compromising color, clarity or performance.

Big Sound
To create surround sound, you will need at least four speakers and a subwoofer. Create an equilateral triangle, with the right and left front speakers as two points and your primary seat as the third point. Meaning, if you are seated seven feet away from the screen, your speakers should be seven feet apart from each other and angled toward you. Place them at the same height as ear level.
