Making The Connection

Putting together a home theater is in many ways a bit like playing with Lego bricks. You start with some bits and pieces, and can add them together, and add to them, in such a way as to make something else. For many people, this is something that constitutes a hobby.

Do Old Movies Look Right On New Technology?

Spending a lot of money on installing a home theater is a way of experiencing new films in the way the director intended them to be enjoyed, but not everybody likes new movies.

Why A Bigger Screen Makes A Movie Better

Watching a film on a dedicated home entertainment system is not a new idea, per se. For many years the average family has had the option to watch a film of their choice on their own TV screen, as the commercial market in video technology has grown. But there has always been, and will continue to be a difference, between watching at home and watching in a cinema – unless you have a cinema in your home, […]

Home Entertainment In The Present Day

There was a time – and it is not in the far-distant past, either – when if you wanted to see a film you would have to go to the cinema to enjoy it.
