Ask one thousand men what the correct way to drive is and you will get one thousand different answers back. Ask one thousand men how to set up a home theater system and you will get one thousand different answers back, so what does that tell you? That each man has his own way of doing things.
But that doesn't mean there aren't a few ground rules we can't agree on. We've compiled a shortlist of the most important things you need to change in order to masculate your home theater system.
It might seem juvenile but knowing you have a bigger TV than a co-worker or friend is a satisfying feeling. It means you're the go-to-guy for any living sporting event, whether it's basketball, football, baseball or racing.
It makes perfect sense; why have a 42 inch TV when you could have a 60 inch TV? Especially when prices have fallen so much in recent years, the Panasonic VIERA TC-P60S30 is a top quality 60" model and you'll be able to get one for just over $1000.
The Remote Control
If an armchair is a man's throne, then the remote control is his trusty digital servant who runs back and forth from the television adjusting channels and doing other menial tasks.
You should never settle for the basic remote control that comes with your television, they're usually cheap and very boring. The Logitech Harmony One remote is a Goliath of the remote world; it has an LCD touch screen and does literally everything you could want.
No-one wants to watch TV whilst on an old chair or uncomfortable sofa; what every man needs is a recliner. But not any recliner, you want one made by the professionals, you want a La-Z-Boy recliner.
These bad boys are not only the height of comfort, but they're really useful too. This La-Z-Boy (pictured above) has special fold-up arm rests that allow you to store everything and anything, from your TV remote to your TV guide.
