So you bought that big LCD or LED you always wanted but you still don’t get the feeling of a movie theatre? That’s just because you haven’t added a home theatre sound system to your living room! They make a home theatre really a home theatre, recreating the overpowering ambience of a real movie theatre in a small room.
Nowadays, home theatre systems come in several forms, ranging from 5.1 systems(5 satellites and a sub-woofer) to 10.1 systems(10 satellites and a sub-woofer). They are also available with Blu-ray players and with a variety of connectivity options such as wifi, buletooth and Airplay which is supported by Apple products. Physically they have a lot of forms too such as towers, boxes, cubes and cones.
In choosing such a system, you can also consider the aesthetic sense they will to your living room or theatre! We have home theatre systems from a lot of companies, the most popular of which are Sony, Panasonic and Samsung. There are a range of options for you to choose from, depending upon the size and setting of your room, your budget, the number of the audience, the orientation of the speakers and last but not the least the content you will be watching.
Quality matters the most for audiophiles and music-lovers. To guarantee such standards are met we have THX certification. There are also several other technologies that enhance your experience like Dolby Surround, Dolby Digital, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-ES and THX Surround EX. Do check if your system is THX certified and supports the other technologies so that you won’t have to repent afterwards.
Normally home theatre systems range from $200/- to $2000/- and hence they vary a lot in quality. It is all up to you to decide which one to buy. You should look for the proper setup that supports your furniture and size of your room. You should also try to keep things such as open bookshelves, curtains or carpets to absorb the unnecessary echo and reverberation. Lastly, while setting up the satellites, do place them on a stable stand such that they have minimum risk of falling down or vibrating. Alternatively, you may also mount them on the wall or hang them from the ceiling.
