What is a home theater? High-quality home cinemas are assembled from component pieces purchased separately to provide the best combination of equipment for the cost. It is possible to purchase home theater kits that include a set of speakers for surround sound, an amplifier/tuner for adjusting volume and selecting video sources, and a DVD player. Though these kits often pale in comparison to a custom-built home cinema, they are inexpensive and are easy to set up in a family room or living room; one needs only to add a television and some movies in order to create a simple home theater. This makes them popular in the public’s eyes.
Some home cinema enthusiasts go so far as to build a dedicated room in the home for the theater. These more advanced installations often include sophisticated acoustic design elements, including “room-in-a-room” construction that isolates sound and provides the potential for a nearly ideal listening environment. These installations are often designated as “media rooms” to differentiate from simpler installations.
This idea can go as far as completely recreating an actual cinema, with a projector enclosed in a projection booth, specialized furniture, curtains in front of the projection screen, movie posters, or a popcorn or snack machine. More commonly, real dedicated home theaters pursue this to a lesser degree. Presently the days of the high priced home theater is being usurped by the rapid advances in digital audio and video technologies, which has spurred a rapid drop in prices. This in turn has brought the true digital home theater experience to the doorsteps of the do-it-yourself people, often for less than what you would expect to pay for a low budget economy car. Current consumer level A/V equipment can meet and often exceed in performance what you would expect to experience at a modern commercial theater.
