Message from Owner

Hi, My name is Alan Hutchinson, Owner and President of HTmarket.com the home theater marketplace.  I founded HTmarket.com in the year 2000 and my vision was to create an all encompassing web site that had everything someone would need to create and design a home theater

I had personally designed my first theater in 1997 using internet web sites like ebay and others to put together a home theater.  It was a painstaking endeavor as many of the vendors I worked with did not even know what a home theater is much less did they know how to provide advice on the products I needed.  I did all the research on my own and it took hours upon hours. My first theater featured a used barco projector that weighed about 250lbs and took two people to lift.  The product took about 6 hours to converge tiny little lines on top of each other with no user guide.  The products have come along way for home theater…. today companies like Epson design home theater projectors that weigh less than 20lbs and their projectors are plug and play. 

My goal was to develop a web site that would allow people like myself an easy way to find answers and products that could make a home theater dream a reality.  The other reality is in today’s times people don’t have extra time to shop, design and tinker around with things.  I developed htmarket.com to be a convenient one stop shop and a good place to call for advice on how to do things right the first time.  

Now 8 years later as look back and I look at what I had envisioned I can say with out a doubt that me and my team at htmarket.com have created an all encompassing web site for home theater.  The site did not just pop up overnight it took about 8 years to say we have everything that is home theater.  We have 7000 pages on our web site.    My vision for the next 8 years is to help more people make home theater dreams become realities.  The reality is that very few people have a true “home movie theater” in their home. They may have a plasma tv or an lcd tv but they really don’t have a movie theater like experience set up yet, so in essence we have just scratched the surface.  The trend is going towards the bigger screen sizes.  We see projector screens being ordered in larger sizes now than ever before.  It used to be 92 inch diagonal projection screen was the norm now I would say 110″ is normal.

The great thing about building a home theater in your home that all members of the family utilize it from your children to you.  In years past, people would build game rooms with ping pong and pool tables now we see home owners build a home theater first and than possibly add a game room later.  The main reason is that home owners use their home theaters more often so it’s a better investment of time and money.

The great thing about home theater is that it’s totally customizable from choosing home theater seating to choosing your own home theater decor like the color and style of your movie poster frames and the size of your popcorn machine.  We believe home theater is not just about the speakers and the home theater system but it’s about the home theater accessories.  Take a tour of the some the home theater photos on our web site.

We welcome your suggestions and your phone calls.  At HTmarket.com we can help you design your whole home theater for free. We have helped design 1000’s of theaters.  We won’t sell you on products but we will provide a home theater solution for you that fits your budget, your room and your taste.  Give us a call or email us you won’t be disappointed.

New Product Additions to HTMarket.com

There’s a lot of new stuff worth checking out at
HTmarket.com, the online home theater marketplace! As a lot of you have found
out firsthand, their selection of home theater projectors and home theater lighting is pretty much unrivaled.  Well, they’re
upping the ante yet again with cool new items for your home theater from all over. For example, take a look at just a few of the new items:

 

The Deco Poster Frame  is a
straightforward, sharp-looking frame, perfect for movie posters (or any
posters). With three finishes to choose from, it’s a great fit for absolutely
any home theater décor (or any room where you’d like to hang a poster in a stylish movie poster frame!).

 

The Custom Spotlight Laser Cut Theatrical Sconce (whew!) is
a steel, gloss black-finished sconce which is engraved with the message of your
choice. It could say “Wayne Family Theater,” “Bruce’s Home
Theater,” or even “BEWARE OF LEOPARD”. The message is laser-cut
through the steel, so the light shines right through! These sconces will make
your theater truly one of a kind. Especially if you go with the leopard idea.

 

Speaking of cutting things with lasers, they’ve also got
Theatrical Laser Cut Home Theater Décor. Designs include movie tickets,
clapboards, comedy/tragedy masks, popcorn, variously sized stars and, of
course, a classic movie projector shape. They’re available in seven colorful
finishes, too.
