Today, audio/video technology has become quite affordable and a home theater system is no longer considered a high end luxury. More and more people now think of having a home theater system installed because it is within their financial reach. For the installation of a home theatre there still a lot of work - wire up television, surround sound speakers as well as a DVD or a multi-media player, put the screen and projectors in place, installing an automated system, etc. All this may sound quite cumbersome, but with a professional installation your system will become the envy of the neighborhood.
Determine the type of television
There are four choices of television available for home theatre- Projection, Flat Screen, LCD, or Plasma. Each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages, and hence require doing extensive research to select a television that is best suited for your digital home theater.
Decide the DVD Player
Standard Definition, Blue Ray and High Definition are all good DVD options for your home theatre. However, before buying a DVD player make sure that the TV and the type of DVD player you select match perfectly. There are some DVD models that work well with only a few particular TVs. Other things that must be considered are its Internet Access, Gaming Features, Recording Capabilities and Computer Friendly features.
Surround Sound System
To get a good surround sound system and enjoy your favorite cinema at its best, consider the quality, size, number of speakers and installation configurations. Also decide at the very beginning if you have to go for a separate component or an out-of-the-box system.
To get the best deal, it is advisable to do extensive initial research and comparison for each component on the Internet. Once you decide, visit your local electronics store and if possible, personally cross check the design and working of the components that you have decided to buy. Question the technician regarding any confusion you may have.
Select the furniture appropriately
Select the right kind of furniture and arrange them in a seating pattern that can give maximum comfort and visual. You can visit your local stores to personally check the sofas, recliners and other furnishing accessories that are available and are best suited for your home theatre.
