Home Theatre

In today’s world everybody wants to have a Home Theatre. The cost of going to the movies has sky-rocketed plus you lose the intimacy of a small gathering. Having your own Home Theatre allows you to entertain a few friends or just simply enjoy the privacy of your own home.

Before you go out and start buying, there are a few things you need to think about. You need to know what essentials you will need to successfully set up your theater room. The size of your room will determine what size TV you need. If your room is very large you might want to consider getting a projector.

You will also need to consider what type lighting is in the room. If the room receives direct sunlight you will need to install curtains or shades that block the light. You will need to have some type lighting that will not glare nor distract from what you are viewing.

If your room has carpeting you will need to research what type sound system you will need since carpeting absorbs and muffles the sound. Probably the most popular type sound system is surround sound which gives you the effect of being right in the middle of the action.

Essential Elements

There are several factors that come into play when you are setting up your Home Theatre. It is possible that you already have several items that you will be putting into your Home Theatre. There are certain elements that are essential in any Home Theatre such as a TV or some type video display unit, a DVD player, speakers, and all of the cables needed for the connections.

If you are beginning your Home Theatre from scratch you are probably looking at spending a minimum of $1,000 on equipment alone.

If your Home Theatre requires any minor construction such as housing for the TV and providing mounts for the speakers you can expect to spend more.

When it comes to the bottom line, you have to ask yourself how much you want to put into your Home Theatre. You can spend a lot of money or you can scale down and use some of the elements you already have in your house. By starting small you will be able to add items to the room as you get the money. There are no iron-clad rules; your Home Theatre should be tailored to suit your needs.

Description Technical Specs
The Harman Kardon AVR 260 combines ease of use with sophisticated features for the best in digital sound. With advanced surround-sound technologies (including Dolby, DTS and Logic 7 processing) 3D and Faroudja DCDi Cinema video processing with upscaling up to 1080p, the AVR 260 ensures an optimal user experience. Plus, with EzSet/EQ equalization, the system is just as easy to set up as it is to listen to.
The AVR260 comes with full HDMI Repeater capability and Faroudja  DCDi Cinema video processing with upscaling to 1080p for crystal clear picture performance. It also the first in the line up to feature Harman Kardon's widely praised full-colour high definition graphical on screen display.

The AVR360 and AVR660 feature the new Dolby Volume technology that analyses, measures and controls perceived volume levels, removing that need to adjust the volume during every commercial break and even switching between channels.

The new receivers also come with an updated graphical on-screen interface which claims to make navigation as clear as possible, has an EzSet/EQ equalization that takes the guess work out of setting up your system, and automatically corrects "lip sync" problems with its HDMI Lip Sync capability and manual A/V Sync Delay. Finally, the multi-device, programmable remote control puts all the receiver's features at the tip of your fingertips.
