“To your video or movie lovers, it’s time you pamper yourself with your home theater. I will not discuss the nature of home theater package or call HITB (Home Theater In the BOX)”
What is needed to create a home theater?
Media Display (Television / TV)
Today more and more people are already looking at the TV not as a regular TV to watch soap operas, news, gossip etc.. It’s time to be bored … … a home theater entertainment media. Actually the media is not just a TV display; still no projector.
The problem is the TV like what’s good for home theater? The choice is 3 – You can select CRT or tube-based technology, LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) or plasma. Multimedia film was to have the benefits and disadvantages. I myself chose the LCD TV.
Media Processing Audio Video (AV Receiver)
Voice or Multimedia Audio Processor is a decisive element of a home theater. My advice is better to spend the largest in this component. Because the sound quality of a film, musical performance or a game is determined by the AV Receiver. Standard minimum of a home theater is 5 pieces or components of the sound track. (1) for the center speaker (2) for front left and right or front speakers (2) again to surround. It would be better if there are additional (1) sub-woofer for bass voice. These minimum standards are also called 5.1. The development of technology allows the AV receiver has a larger channel such as 6.1, 7.1, 9.1 and even 10.1.
Voice Media Processing (speakers)
There are 2 types of speakers that are good for home theater. Speaker type floor standing or bookshelf. The difference is the number of speakers and a series in it. The term cool 2way or 3way. Subwoofer is special speakers to reproduce low frequencies that exist in a movie or music. There are several types that can be selected for this subwoofer. Call it down firing, front-firing, etc..
Resources Processing (source component)
At least you should have a DVD player (player). What should be observant before choosing a DVD is its ability to present progressive scan and upscaling; this is very important to see a movie DVD, especially if you are watching with HDTV. Several other media should also be held, among others, Blue-ray player, PlayStation 3, DVD Recorder, CD Player, iPod and Digital Sattelite System
At first I did not believe the cable is an important component in an important role as well. The key factor in the selection of the cable wiring is correct, the length of cable that fit and all connected with perfectly cable-speaker for home theater. Currently HDMI cable to connect the TV with AV-Receiver is the best option. Optical Cable For sound though no doubt the quality (digital)
Interior shall be considered to provide comfort. The layout and hear a good position will make us more comfortable with home theater systems that we build
