The Starter’s Guide to Home Theater System [Part 2]



Dubbed the control center of a home theater system, a receiver processes signals from multiple sources. All other components are connected to a receiver and it relays audio and video signals to their respective output sources. Your consoles, streaming set-top boxes and other peripheral components can all be plugged into a receiver to create a more organized system. It is one device that manages all your home theater components.


If a surround sound system is out of your budget range, you should still consider getting a pair of speakers. A home theater system will benefit greatly from a pair of good speakers. They can greatly enhance your home theater experience. Choosing the perfect pair of speakers is dependent on the space of your home entertainment space. Audio is equally as important as video in a properly designed home theater system. If budget allows, upgrading to a 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound speakers will take your home theater experience to whole new level.


The soundbar is an alternative to a surround sound system. If you are planning on setting up a home theater system in a small space, consider getting a soundbar to add great audio to your home theater. Most modern soundbars are amplified thus eliminating the need for a receiver. Without a receiver, all components are connected directly to the TV and then output the audio from the TV to the soundbar. They can produce high-quality sound in a package that is a fraction of the size of a surround sound system and budget-friendly as well.
