Put down the Consumer Reports and delete the electronics in your Amazon cart. No one’s going to be impressed by the shoddy home-theater system you’re trying to jury-rig. Instead, go to the Audio Concepts near BU, a playground for audio- and cinephiles alike. The top-notch systems here are custom-designed to fit each home — and, mercifully, don’t resemble the bridge of the Starship Enterprise.
