A little less than a century back, JL Baird presented us with the first television set, and it opened the gateways to entertainment which could only be imagined back then. Till now, it continues to be one of the most preferred modes of entertainment. The present however is more about how realistic an experience can you have. It’s more about standing next to Brad Pitt in a picturesque setup or calling Lebron James for the final pass in NBA finals. The existence of a home theater system does make all such experiences a reality today. Let us look at five major reasons you need one too:
The magic of surround sound: High quality woofers and sub-woofers no more lets the sound come from a single direction. You need to feel closer, more real. For that sound needs to come from all around. And the best of the home theaters leave you looking around searching for the source of sound. This is surround sound. The 5.1 and 7.1 are the most common surround formats used, however the latest technology has seen the development of 3D surround sound possible too. So as to ensure you don’t miss out on a single bit of excitement, thrill or well…any emotion for that matter.
The power of control: Yes, I am referring to the remote control. The wireless device which makes you feel like a king, tuning things at your whim. Had a hectic day at work and need to relax? A couch awaits you and very soon the whole world is going to be under your thumb. A remote control conveniently lets you control sound and picture in a range of ways. The high end, complete home theater system even lets you control temperature and lighting. Phew!
Perfect Screen: A good home theater amplifies your visual experience manifold. Depending upon your priorities, there are a variety of screen options available to you now. Of course, TVs are not the only option that you have. It could be a digital projector, collapsible screen or a television set, all depending on your priorities. While a hardcore, spendthrift movie buff would prefer a trendy projector any day, you can make a choice depending upon your budget and the place at which you are setting up the home theater.
Cables and connectivity: You obviously would not want to miss watching a movie directly from your portable device on the home theater just due to some connectivity hassle. Therefore, in addition to the audio and video cables, an additional HDMI cable adds further to your convenience; thus adding to your experience. A digital audio cable also comes in handy in case you want to plug in an audio device.
Multi tasking n media hub: Multi tasking is something seen everywhere today, and a home theater doesn’t disappoint too. Want to stream live content from Netflix, Youtube, Amazon? You have a home theater at your service. Not just that, gaming consoles like PS3 and Xbox can also be supported in the modern day home theater systems.
Go ahead. A whole new dimension of audio-visual experience awaits you. Don’t you feel already feel closer to Brad Pitt, imagine experiencing it. I am sure you would not want to miss out on something which enhances your ‘TV time’ to an all new level.
