From high-definition home cinema to small, but powerful surround sound systems, the latest home theatre products reflect the huge advances in technology over the past two years.

But working out the best option for your own home isn't always straightforward, which is where Harvey Norman can help. All the company's stores have extensive, fully operational displays showcasing many different product lines.

Audio/visual product manager Tane Poulson says one of the biggest benefits for consumers is the flexibility of the options on show.

"Every client's needs are different, so we make it easy to mix and match products to suit," he says. "For example, you can choose from the latest plasma, LCD and LCD rear projection technology, or you may opt for a projector unit that can provide an extra-large image of more than 250cm."

Poulson says the stores also have an almost unlimited number of variations for audio solutions to complete the home theatre experience. These include multi-speaker 5.1 and 7.1 systems, and multi-room options.

"There are even discreet in-wall or in-ceiling configurations that ensure you don't have to compromise your decor to achieve great sound quality," he says. "Outdoor speakers are also in demand as homeowners look to equip outdoor living areas with a full surround sound system."

Harvey Norman carries a high proportion of recognised brands that, together with Harvey Norman, support, warrant and back their products. These include Sony, Panasonic, Pioneer, Toshiba, JVC, Sharp, Yamaha, Onkyo, B&W, Klipsch, Philips, Samsung and JBL.

"With such a large selection, it makes sense to compare products all in the one place," says Poulson. "You can also benefit from the experience of the Harvey Norman staff, who are all fully up to date with the latest technology, products and trends."

Poulson says Harvey Norman consultants are highly trained and work with suppliers, both inside and outside of trading hours, to ensure they are well versed to discuss every detail of the products and technology.

"We are committed to providing a full solution with flexible options to suit every situation and budget," he says. "Harvey Norman can also help arrange finance for your new home theatre."
