Today, Home Cinema implies a real "cinema experience" with higher quality components than an average television with only built-in speakers. A typical home theatre includes the following elements:


Audio Devices: Input devices are processed by either a standalone AV receiver or a Preamplifier and Sound Processor for complex surround sound formats.

Audio Output: Systems consist of at least 2 speakers, however most common today is 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound system, but it is possible to have up to 11 speakers with additional subwoofers.

Video Output: A large-screen display either an HDTV, or 3D TV. Options include LED and OLED televisions rear-projection TV, or video projector and projection screen.

Atmosphere: Comfortable seating and organisation to improve the cinema feel. Higher-end home systems commonly also have sound insulation to prevent noise from escaping the room, and a specialised wall treatment to balance the sound within the room. The lighting can be programmed to dim when the movie is started and soft lighting turns on when the movie is paused. Of course you can just upgrade your system in your sitting room as well.

Video and Audio Devices: One or more video/audio sources. High quality movie media format such as Blu-ray are normally preferred, though they often also include a DVD and/or video game console systems. Quite a few home theatres include a HTPC (Home Theatre PC) with media centre software application to act as the main library for video and music.
