All home theater systems are built using three basic features: a television, a video source, and a surround sound system. Keep reading to learn how you can upgrade your home theater system in Canton, GA, using these tips from Home Entertainment Technology.
First and foremost, you have to have a big screen television for the ultimate home theater experience. To determine what size TV you need, measure the distance from your couch to your TV stand. Divide the number of inches by 3 and that's approximately how big your big should be. For large entertainment rooms, a movie theater-style projection screen is a great option.
Next, you need a video source. For a high-quality movie experience, Blu-ray is the current industry standard. A basic Blu-ray player will play the latest Blu-ray blockbusters as well as regular DVD and music CDs. For the family that likes to game, consider a console like the PS4 or Xbox One. Both consoles are compatible with Blu-ray disc, CDs, DVDs and most major streaming services. For theatre-style entertainment rooms, projection players are also available in high-definition.
Finally, even a basic home theater system needs digital surround sound. Surround sound uses several speakers positioned around your living room to give you that movie theater experience. A basic surround sound system comes with a front speaker, a subwoofer, and at least two side speakers positioned behind the audience. The front speaker provides most of the sound, amplifying the TV’s own capabilities while the subwoofer provides lower frequency bass.
