At last you can experience all the thrills and moods of a great movie on your own home theater right in your own living room
Historically the cinema has been a place of luxury and entertainment for over 80 years. In the 1930s there was a huge swing towards even more luxurious surroundings with an Egyptian or Roman theme together with red velvet curtains and brass railings to complete the North African theme.
In the 1950s and 60s came bigger and better screens and improvements in sound to bring a realistic thrill to audiences. Before the advent of quality television, the cinema was the best place to go for affordable entertainment. Now almost all of the things we took for granted in the cinema are readily and affordably available for any householder on their own home theater system. You can now watch the latest movies in a wide screen at home with sound that can make you easily get really believing that you are actually in the movie.
Home theaters now have a brilliant picture and the sound is the most entertaining part of the cinema experience. It really is very easy to set up a home theater.
You need a modern television set preferably with HD (Hi Definition) ability and this should measure at least 27 inches diagonally across the screen.
A larger television set (42 inch seems to be the most popular and still affordable model) will give you a much better viewing experience when you link a good quality DVD player and three loudspeakers. This is the basic affordable setup for a home theater that will give you the feeling of being in a cinema of your own..
There are other accessories you can add to ensure a real cinematic experience. You can add home entertainment furniture but this may be more expensive than you expect for your home theater.
You should also consider the size of the room when planning your home theater. It is best to consider the room size when choosing the TV set. Biggest is not always best and a 42 inch TV set can overwhelm a smaller room and definitely does not add then to the viewing experience,
Surround Sound is an alternative to consider but for this you really need between 5 and seven speakers. Better quality speakers definitely give better quality sound but Sony speakers give seriously good results and almost match the top brands in the field. Bose and B&O are probably the leaders in the loudspeaker field and many users will not settle for anything less. Quality, however does add to the final bill and you should consider the additional cost of necessary leads particularly when you choose a high end setup.
A better quality DVD player will certainly improve the viewing experience and Blu-Ray seems to be the current favourite for hifi enthusiasts. It is sensible to check out reviews from users on websites like Amazon.com and this is a good way to avoid costly mistakes over purchases like DVD players.
What you are really looking for is a flicker-free DVD player that gives a crisp, clear image.
Home theater speakers Generally speaking, a complete Home theater package complete with good quality speakers and a Blu-ray DVD player is adequate for most people and comes as a complete package from companies like Sony and Panasonic.
