Younger adults may not know what many home theater enthusiasts have long considered to be the most important music DVD to have in the collection. That would be Hell Freezes Over by the Eagles, released on videotape in 1994. The video’s Dolby sound has always been a marvel to music lovers, and stores selling home theater systems commonly kept the video playing at all times to introduce customers to the electronic equipment. Home Theater Installers in Bothell are likely to know of this storied video and to recommend its purchase on DVD. Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound has been added its original release, making it even more of an exceptional listening experience for people who don’t have access to a Dedicated to Sound (DTS) system.

This particular DVD features 17 filmed performances, one audio-only track, and a lengthy and entertaining introduction to the band’s regrouping after 14 years. Watching and hearing the video after equipment is put in place by Home Theater Installers in Bothell is almost like being at the concert. To this day, fans of the band and non-fans alike verify that the sound is the most realistic to be found in the DVD format. The main complaint is the lack of pizzazz during the performances, but even the staunchest Eagles fans admit that the musicians have never been known for elaborate showmanship. They stand in one place and play their music.

How long will it be until another DVD matches the quality of this one, filmed more than two decades ago? One can only guess. There are many others that music lovers recommend; doing some research online may be fun for people who plan to have a movie-watching room created by a company such as Affordable Home Theater. Recommendations range from classic rock to blues to jazz to symphonic performances. Watching live performances from the comfort of one’s own home lets music fans avoid crowds, annoying seat neighbors and crazy ticket prices. In addition, they are free to watch those DVDs over and over as they like without having to travel to see the band in concert again.
