Home theater,or home theaters,are personal audio-video systems which aim to replicate a movie theater environment and ambiance with user-friendly consumer electronics-quality sound system and equipment installed in a personal or family home by a professional audio video installation professional. Home theater equipment is very similar to home theater equipment used by movie studios or theaters,only that they are often used at a lower cost to consumers. The main difference between home theater equipment and similar equipment purchased by studios is that the home equipment is intended to be used in homes,while studios produce their equipment to be used at commercial theaters. There are various brands and styles of home theater products available,depending on the user’s needs.
The first step in choosing your home audio system is to decide the size of the room where you plan to put the equipment. You should consider how much sound and visual effects you want and need,and if your room is large enough or small enough for you to enjoy the experience. Once you have determined the size of the room,you can then choose your video components. A wide screen TV is generally preferred to smaller flat screens,because of the picture quality and comfort. For a better viewing angle,a projection screen is best installed in the corner of the room. If your room is large enough to accommodate such a device,make sure the screen is at least ten feet away from the equipment.
The home theater speakers are the most important component of the home theater,so it is important to determine their proper use. Speakers should be placed in places where they can provide the best sound,without blocking any view of what is being viewed. If a speaker will block the view of any part of the screen,the sound quality may be poor,or the sound could become muddled due to poor placement.
