“I thought plasmas were the bomb before I started working here, but you definitely get more bang for your buck with this setup,” says Michael Hunsberger, a theater installer and design consultant for TheaterXtreme in Berwyn. They offer a 123-inch screen (yes, that’s more than 10 feet wide) and sell home theater systems with surround sound, onscreen management of your DVD library, music, gaming, the Web, even live Doppler radar. With installation, prices run from $7,000 and up. Curious? Stop in and try one of the jaw-dropping sample home theaters — they’ll even give you popcorn.
