Although there are some UHD flat panel displays up to 110” in size, the common average runs in the 46” to 65” size. In most cases, the Home Theater resides in a dual purpose space, namely your living room. With the exception of purpose-built theater rooms, your equipment and display must inhabit the same area as your furniture, décor and family members.
