Many people shell out a good amount of money for a new LCD TV and then are left with a fantastic visual experience but deplorable sound quality. In this article, we will take a look at whether you need a home theater projector for your living room and which ones you may want to purchase.
Latest Home Theater Projector
Last weekend, my friend Jim invited everyone over to his house to watch the movie “300” on his new big screen, a 52 inch Samsung Touch of Color LCD TV with an accompanying Blu-ray. As the movie started, we watched in awe at the amazing picture that the Samsung TV provided. However, ten minutes into the movie, my friend Cheryll said to Jim, “I don’t hear the surround sound. Where have you placed the rear speakers?”
Jim looked rather clueless and hopeless. Like most people, Jim had just purchased his new TV and had no idea that a TV, even a new one, provides mediocre sound and does not support the full effects of the “movie experience”.
Home Theater Systems
Cheryll looked at Jim incredulously, “You mean you didn’t buy a Home Theater System with your new TV?”
Many people, when they plunk down over $1,000 on a new LCD TV, feel cheated when they realize that the sound is lacking. In fact, Jim’s Samsung TV, which is regarded as one of the best LCD TVs, is known for having sound that is not quite optimal home theater speakers
Thus, to get the full movie and entertainment experience, you need to add a home theater projector to your LCD TV. These systems come with a receiver, a subwoofer, and at least five speakers enabling you to get the full surround sound movie experience. When you buy all of these components together, you can get a fantastic deal for under $500, which sometimes includes a Blu-ray disc player.
We recommend the following two systems: the Sony HTSS360 5.1 channel Home Theater System and the LG LHB977 1000-Watt Blu-ray Disc Home Theater In a Box (for those folks who want a Blu-ray disc included). Both of these models come in at under $500.
First, the Sony HTSS360 5.1 channel Home Theater only costs $228. If you already have a Blu-ray disc, this is the choice you want to make. It is easy to setup, comes with all the essentials, and sounds great with movies, sports, and even video games.
The LG LHB977 1000-Watt Blu-ray Disc Home Theater In a Box is currently available over the Christmas season for under $500. This system comes with sleek looking front speakers, a subwoofer, back speakers, an iPod dock, a Blu-ray player, and Internet connectivity allowing you to watch movies on demand. It is simply a great all in one package at an amazing price.
The bottom is that your television does not provide movie quality sound. You need a home theater projector to get a true movie experience and elevate your entertainment system to high quality. Fortunately, there are great deals out there for you this holiday season.
