This is Your Introduction to Home Theater Primer

Home theater refers to audio and video equipment set up in your home that reproduces the movie theater experience. With the proper equipment, anyone can turn their living room or family room into an immersive movie-going experience.

Basic Home Theater

At its most basic, a home theater can be a simple as simple as combining a mid-size flat-screen television of 32 to 42 inches with a DVD player, stereo or basic home theater receiver, speakers, and a subwoofer.

The addition of a cable or satellite box with digital recording can expand the content available to your basic system. Adding a Blu-ray Disc player can open the door to significantly better picture quality when watching movies. With plunging prices, upgrading to a large-screen LCD, LED, or Plasma HDTV (60 inches or larger) is now an affordable option as well.

While some consumers may opt to assemble their own basic home theater system, safely mounting a large-screen TV, connecting all the components and speakers, running all the wires, and programming everything to work together can be a daunting task. Pegasus Low Voltage offers convenient flat-rate installation packages for installing flat screen TVs – including connectivity with satellite or cable box, DVD player, and game console with an option for concealed wires.

Custom Home Theater

For consumers who want the ultimate home theater experience, there are many exciting options. In addition to advanced video projection systems, flat-screen TVs now routinely come in sizes from 60 to 80 inches – large enough to fill most walls. In fact, Samsung offers a whopping 110-inch HDTV. Affordable 3-D TVs are now available as well.

Custom home theater systems can include DVD and Blu-Ray Disc players, network media players, dynamic sound systems featuring separate amplifiers for each channel controlled by a master preamp or controller, in-wall speakers with hidden wiring, and multiple subwoofers capable of shaking the entire neighborhood.
