TV needs to be selected by keeping a number of aspects in mind.

  • Size of TV matters a lot. Most of the people usually think of only big-sized TVs being suitable for home theatre; which is not always the best idea. Select the size that will not cause visibility problems, which are usual when big screen is viewed from close distance.
  • Lighting in the room and screen type should be well matched. LEDs and OLEDs are made to match with all kinds of lighting. All you will need is to adjust the brightness and color optimizers.
  • Higher resolution of screen is always better if you are fond of good quality pictures. However, home theatre system provides best visual effects with full HD resolution of screen. Ultra HD, in this scenario might not make any difference.
  • Now it’s the time to arrange the video source. For this, you can purchase TV receiver, DVD or Blu-Ray disk player, or arrange a high-speed internet connection if you are fond of video streaming.

Step 2: Set Up the Sound System

 This mainly involves power wiring and cabling between items to establish he connections.

  • Attach cable ducts with the walls for safe passage of power cables from outside to the power outlet. Set up 3 – 4 sockets in the outlet.
  • Always use HDMI cables for forming connection between video source and TV.
  • Sound system may consume most of the cabling in the room. Using cable ducts might not be the best option in this scenario because of the comparatively random positions of speakers. The simpler solution in this regard is to conceal the cables under the rug, placed in the center of room. You can place speakers at the ends of the rug to keep most part of the cables hidden.
