With a good Home theater system you can experience a movie theater in your own living room!

Home theater refers to a setup of audio and video equipment in your home that tries to duplicate the movie theater experience.

Many consumers think this means they have to spend a fortune to recreate a cinema in their living room, but it's not true – the reality is that Home Theater can consist of basic items as simple as a 27-inch TV, a basic DVD player and/or HiFi VCR, inexpensive stereo or AV receiver, and speakers. Of course you can indeed have a custom built home theater that costs tens of thousands of dollars with a high end video projector, high end DVD and Blu-Ray Disc player(s), wifi controllers and network players, multiple amplifiers for channels controlled by a master preamp or remotely, in-wall or very expensive free-standing speakers, and a couple of subwoofers that can just about shake down the house but you don't need it.

Whatever type of system you end up with, as long as it provides the entertainment options you want, then it is a "Home Theater" And can be in any room of the house, apartment, office, or even outside. The option(s) you choose are up to you.

This program shows you how to go about planning, budgeting, purchasing and installing a system that best meets your particular needs and desires. It also provides information on cables and connections, HDTV service, furniture, and utilizing existing equipment you may already have. It concludes by showing you step-by-step, how to set up a home theater consisting of an HDTV, Blu-ray DVD, DVD-R and a 6 speaker, 5 to 1, surround sound system.
