Aug 17, 2007
It's a growing trend. It's called home theater and many people are discovering what a wonderful entertainment aspect of their lives it is. Are you considering joining the club? Then you need to start reading home theater reviews.

Can a home theater system review help you firstly, understand what is required and secondly, give you the right advice in setting up your very own in house cinema? They sure can but you need know what to look for.

Fact File

The television is the first component following the choice of the area you should purchase. For real cinema experience, large screen televisions are best but you'll need to read a review or two to decide whether it's LCD, plasma or rear projection you choose!

Home Theater System Reviews

There are varying degrees of home theater systems. Some decide to just go with the basics while others go all the way and refurbish a basement and set up their own piece of cinema magic. Whatever level you decide to build, it's a good idea to review systems before you actually get started on a project and spend your hard earned dollars.

A good place to start is to pick up a copy of Home Theater magazine. It's full of excellent information on how to build and set up systems while providing excellent information on specific components which go into it work.

What Will A Home Theater Review Tell You

If you are new to home cinema then you have a lot to learn. One of the best ways for those on a limited budget to get started is to take it step-by-step. I have always maintained a home theater system set up is a work in progress and I haven't changed my mind.

A good review will outline several factors including the essential elements required, the common mistakes to avoid and some good old basics.

I'm not sure what level you are planning to take your system to. For those who want something fairly simple and basic then you will look for reviews on television models such as whether plasma is a better option than LCD or vice versa. You'll look for DVD player and sound systems reviews and that's about it. For the more adventurous enthusiasts, then the first review you need to look at is the initial set up.

This is the most important aspect of home theater; get this wrong and you may as well pull it all down and start again. A good review will point out the room logistics or for those wanting something really special, read reviews on converting your basement into your very own cinema extravaganza.If this is the case, look for reviews from those who have utilized the services of home theater designers.

Home Theater Reviews Online

Magazines are a great source of reviews for home theater but so is going online. The good part is reviews come in all shapes and sizes such as for and against reviews on specific items such as televisions and sound systems. You get a good idea of what to consider and what to leave alone. Only consider or dismiss an item if it's mentioned several times.
