An option with Smart Home Wiring is to locate all the AV equipment (amplifier, cable receivers, streaming equipment, etc.) in another part of the home, such as in a closet or utility room. The equipment is installed in an optional rack. There are additional electronics cost for having the equipment in a remote location which vary depending on the complexity of your system. There are advantages of installing all the AV equipment in central area.
• TVs can share equipment
• No equipment needed by the TV freeing up cabinet space
• No need for furniture under flat panel TVs
• Easier upgrade and replacement of equipment
