Today we have decided to help you by telling you what you need to set up a home theater and enjoy a cinema experience at the highest level, very similar to that of the big screen cinema near me. So take note, because these are the essential gadgets you need to build a superior quality home cinema. Lights, camera, and action!
Why a projector and not a Smart TV? The most similar experience to that of the movie theater is offered by a projector. Its great advantage over televisions is that for domestic use, its value for money is much more favorable. And it is also a matter of light because the projectors reflect it on a screen just as it happens in cinemas.
When it comes to projectors, there are plenty of models to choose from. There are even mini projectors and they are not very expensive.
If you are looking for a much more professional projector and you don’t mind raising the price a bit, the best you can buy is the Xiaomi Mi Smart Compact Projector, which costs around 500 dollars and offers you a FullHD cinema experience.
Although many projectors include a built-in screen, it is best to opt for the best. Because if you want to feel a cinema experience at home, well that… Let it be a cinema!
A good sound system
When choosing the multichannel audio equipment for your home theater you will have to pay attention to the acoustic characteristics, the materials, and size of the drivers, its configuration.
The minimum configuration would be a 5.1 system, which implies having five satellite speakers and a subwoofer. From here you can find more ambitious topologies. For just 300 dollars you can have this Logitech Z906 5.1 surround sound speaker system. There’s more affordable equipment you should check out like the VPI turntables.
Finding a good receiver can be difficult since their prices and features are very different. We recommend that you stick to your budget and do not throw the house out the window with its benefits. For example, why pay extra for a receiver with AirPlay support if you don’t have iOS or Mac?
