Perhaps coach Adam Levine of “The Voice” got tired of being the landlord. The Maroon 5 frontman has sold his home in Hollywood Hills for $3.55 million in an off-market deal. The remodeled Mid-Century Modern-style home sits on a half-acre lot with a separate guest unit. Features include two interior fireplaces, a home theater, an exercise room, a security system, four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Walls of glass open to an outdoor fireplace, swimming pool and spa. Levine, 34, is the lead singer and guitarist for the Grammy-winning Maroon 5. He has worked with Kanye West, Natasha Bedingfield and 50 Cent, among others.

Home theater systems are expensive but, contrary to popular opinion, they are not so costly that only the rich can afford them. Though it is possible to spend from $10,000 to $100,000 for a deluxe home theater, it is also possible to assemble one that's fairly impressive for only a few thousand dollars.

No matter how simple or elaborate the design of your home theater setup, it's not going to be much good if you end up with a shoddy electronics installation. A major boon to do-it-yourselfers is the home theater component package that includes surround-sound speakers, amplifier, FM tuner and DVD player. You just add a TV and you're ready to watch a movie.

Today's electronic sound decoders take the Dolby stereo audio signal present on many laser discs and videotapes and split it into four separate channels of sound--left, center, right and surround--to produce an audio effect known as surround sound. When the separate channels of sound are routed to strategically located speakers, they can turn a living room into a home theater. According to Video Magazine, decoders can offer the most for your money in upgrading a home theater environment.
