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.
Getting the best from your home entertainment system is a subjective matter – what you want from your home theater may be different from what other people would want, so it’s not just about the “best home theater“, but the one that works for you.
Your home theater may well be different from the one your neighbor would put together, for example. It will depend on what you want to showcase using it.
It is a good idea to link up a home PC or a laptop if, for example, you want to use it to provide music at parties. From the PC you can put together a playlist that will make the party go with a swing.
Your neighbor, however, might not care for music and might prefer to play documentaries – nature films, for example, which show the Bengal tiger in all its majesty.
His interest, then, should be in getting the best TV to showcase light and shade.
A lot of the technical knowledge involved in constructing your preferred home theater will depend on technical differences such as these.
If you are prepared to spend enough money you can put together a home theater that works equally well for movies, music, sports and potentially for video games too.
But it will certainly require a lot of equipment which will not come cheap.
