  1. What are the best speakers for an apartment?
    Reply

    For an apartment, you are probably going to want a sound system that doesn’t disturb the neighbors. With that said, a set of bookshelf speakers from Sony, Samsung or whatever else will do just fine. Avoid a subwoofer that is too powerful as it might make the building vibrate.

  3. Should I buy a 4K TV?
    Reply

    If you are going to buy a new television as part of your home theater system, then it is best to choose a 4K TV as part of it. A 4K television offers four times the resolution of HD and offers HDR, which means greater clarity and more lively colors. Purchase a 4K blu-ray player along with your TV and watch movies in a whole new way.

  4. How can I get the most immersive sound?
    Reply

    If you are looking for the most immersive sound experience, you are going to want to set up a 7.1-inch sound system. Generally, the more speakers you have, the more immersive the experience will be. If you’ve ever been to the movies, you’ve probably noticed the multiple speakers surrounding the theater, filling the room with sound. However, if you have a smaller room, you might not notice the different between a 5.1 and 7.1-channel sound system.

    To set up a 7.1-channel surround system you are going to need a decent receiver. Receivers like the Denon AVR-S730H are available for less than $400 and are ideal for powering a room full of speakers. The easy to use Denon system features six HDMI ports for connecting multiple devices, and also offers Bluetooth connectivity. When you set up your system, the speakers will connect to the receiver and you’ll only hear sound when the receiver is on.

    You can purchase a sound system well below $1,000 and still have incredible sound. One of the best budget sound systems is the Pioneer SP-PK22BS, a 5.1-channel system that provides bold, dynamic sound for music, movies and television. The bookshelf speaker system is great for a smaller room or for a downstairs apartment – provided you don’t turn the bass up too high.

  7. Should I include a projector?
    Reply

    If you are looking for a home theater experience that is truly like going to the movies, you might want to forget about that HDTV and opt for a high-quality projector like the Sony VPLHW40ES 1080p 3D SXRD Home Theater Projector that can fill a 100 to 120-inch screen. With a projector like that, you can get greater contrast, brightness and color accuracy than with any HD television – and of course an image that’s a lot bigger. Of course, you’ll need to select the screen separately.

  8. What is the best speaker system for large rooms?
    Reply

    The best speaker system for large rooms would be a good quality set of floor standing speakers. This brings the entertainment area from and center and will better help you fill larger rooms with sound. Sound systems like the Klipsch RP-280 5.1 Home Theater Speaker System, however, will easily cost you a few thousand dollars.
