10 Things That You Need to Put in Your Home Theater
So what makes the perfect home theater? I am not going to get all technical on you and give you exact specs for everything you need in your home theater because everyone has different tastes but here are 10 items that you simply must have.
A TV – Yes is would be extremely difficult to have much of a home theater without a television. When it comes to TV’s the bigger the better in my book. Another item to remember when you are looking at televisions is the resolution. In order to make sure you get the best picture possible and don’t lose any picture quality double check that you get a high-def TV with a resolution of 720p or 1080p picture.
A Blu-ray Player – a blue ray player is going to give you the sharpest picture possible and will still play your regular DVDs. In fact most blu-ray players will actually increase the quality of your regular dvd so even your old DVDs will have a sharper image.
A Home Theater Receiver – The receiver is heart of your home theater. The receiver powers the speakers and makes surround sound a possibility.
A Solid Set Of Speakers – To recreate the magical effect of surround sound you get in the theater you will want at least 5 voice-matched speakers. Now if you want to get a little crazy you could even go with 6 or 7 voice-matched speakers.
A Solid Subwoofer – So if the receiver is the heart of the home theater the subwoofer is the angry fist of the system. A good subwoofer is essential to recreate those earth shaking affects where you actually feel like you were in movie. Lava Subs makes one of the finest home theater subwoofers I have found to complement almost any system.
A Universal Remote – There is nothing more aggravating than trying to find the 3 thousand remotes to your system to make sure everything is working. I would suggest investing in a good universal remote to stop the anger and give you more time to watch the movie instead of hunting for the remotes.
A Comfortable Chair – What good is an awesome home theater system if you are not comfortable? Enough said!
Lighting Control – Everyone needs a way to dim the lighting just enough to not interfere with the movie but not have it so dark that you are blind once the TV goes off.
Popcorn – Who can watch a move without popcorn? Honestly… I can’t believe I even had to put it on the list.
Movie Theater Decor – A movie poster or 2 never hurt anything. Give the place some character.
