Most homeowners are intimidated by the concept of home theater. They think that it means a lot of money. But a home theater is just an audio and video equipment set up in your home that mirrors the movie theater experience. With proper planning, you can have an organized, functional, and visually pleasing home theater set-up that suits your needs.
For those who are willing to splurge, a high end large screen TV or video projector, Blu-Ray Disc or Ultra HD Blu-ray players, a media server, cable or satellite, separate amplifiers for each channel controlled by a master preamp or controller, in-wall speakers, and a couple of subwoofers can be included in your set-up. However, there are also modest set-ups for those whose priority is practicality. A simple 32 to 55-inch TV, combined with at least a DVD player soundbar or a Blu-ray Disc player combined with a stereo or home theater receiver, speakers, and a subwoofer works fine as well. If you are willing to spend just a bit more, you can upgrade to a 4K Ultra HD LED TV.
