A theater experience at home was once limited to the very wealthy. But advances in technology now make excellent-quality image and surround-sound available to most people. This article introduces home theater systems and points you in the right direction for putting together your own system.
There was a time, not all that long ago, when a home entertainment system capable of giving you a cinema-like experience would cost upwards of ten thousand dollars just for the electronic equipment. No wonder people who could afford that went ahead added special theater seating and décor. But nowadays with big-screen HDTVs and A/V receivers becoming more and more affordable a great home theater is usually within reach.
With the latest home theater gear, you no longer need to hire a design and installation specialist, but you will need to do your homework, shop around, and complete the connections and set-up yourself. You need to seriously think about your budget, making sure you can comfortably afford one to two thousand dollars (buying everything), and then hold to that budget. Fortunately, installation and set up are pretty straightforward. Just connect cables as per the manufacturer’s manual, and the electronic components themselves can do an excellent set-up automatically. You’re likely to be amazed with how great a system you can put together on your own.
