There’s no getting around it: every house needs a good home theatre system. But what makes up a good home theatre system? You’ll need to have the right display, the right amplifier, and the right selection of speakers.
The first part of most home theatre systems is the television. Today, almost all televisions sold are flatscreen TV’s, and they come in LCD or Plasma varieties. The biggest concern here is size. You need to think about how far away from the screen you will be sitting when choosing a television.
The next step will be to choose an amplifier for the speakers. There are many quality brands available, so ask your friends what they use in their homes. The most important decision here is whether you get a 5.1 system (five speakers) or a 7.1 system (seven speakers). Your amplifier will always limit the number of speakers you can have, so choose carefully.
Finally, you need to choose the right set of speakers. The only way to do this is to check home theatre stores and listen to the different speakers they have available. Once you find a set that you like, take them home and set it all up!
