Home Theater Design Showcase Chester, NJ.

A Chester, N.J., homeowner was generously given a set of Martin Logan speakers and a McIntosh seven-channel amp by his brother, who was upgrading his home theater.

The Challenge

The gifts were the impetus the Chester homeowner needed to embark on his own home theater project, and he engaged Bravo AV to build a high-performance home theater with the biggest screen appropriate for his space.
