low profile .. double slot .. Hmmm . cant have both .. double slot means 2 slots ??? 2 x pci slots ??

2 backplate slots, it's aimed at slimline Micro ATX cases rather than small cases.

The one time great is looking a little dated these days - and while it has a Maxwell chipset, it's Maxwell V1 - which DOES NOT get FL12 support - has to be Maxwell V2 for that.

It'll be too slow for gaming before feature level 12 is required so it's not a big deal.

No, double slot means it takes up the width of two slots, the fan is thicker than 1slot, it will still only require one PCI-E slot on the motherboard though.
I got a small form factor 2gb 950 for just over a hundred, that was a year ago, and that runs l intensive games on high / ultra still

Why is the volume quite low? In my old receiver, the volume is very high even in turn the volume knob only half.

I noticed this too compared to my old Denon 1909! I tried upping the source increase (not volume) to no avail. Same speakers etc. Didn't find a solution so interested if anyone has. Latest firmware is installed too.

Great price. Gutted as bought the RXV581 yesterday :/
What does the 681 have that's worth the extra money?
4K upscaling, slightly higher power output, 2 extra HDMI inputs, component input, phono input.

don't 4k tv's already upscale? don't think I need the other inputs

Any ideas of how this compares to the Denon avr-2300x? Both similar in price...
Richer Sounds just made my mind up for me; they dropped the price of the Denon AVRX2300W to £349. Trigger pulled.
Deal posted here.

Let us know what you think. Last 10 years I've had 5 AV receivers. 3x Yamaha, 1x Sony and 1 Onkyo. All similar spec throughout the years.

The Onkyo was beyond awful. Tinny sound, extremely poor interface and customisation. Not to mention an onslaught of bugs. The Sony was okay, but Yahama has always been the winner for me.

But this Denon has so many more features than 681, it simply must be considered. It also has great reviews. So let us know.

So happy to see 4K and HDR support is now entry level! Still holding out for second hand or open box stuff, but what excellent prices recently.
Great price for an HDR/HDCP 2.2 capable av unit, got the 481 and it sounds amazing!
Stupid question... I've got an old Samsung HT-C5900 system. would I be able to use this receiver in conjunction with my current speakers, then upgrade the speakers at a later date? Reason for wanting to upgrade for 4K compatibility.

Going to lock this now. This is not a platform for trolling and petty bickering
EBay negative feedback now 180 and percentage 87.9. Anyone noticed them coming back under a new account name?
Now, I know where we all went wrong. We should have checked their feedback on Trustpilot before making a purchase. https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.harmankardon.com
"Item was cancelled without good reason. 14 days to get my refund. not impressed"

The so called 'human being' who left negative feedback no less than 50 times is a bloody disgrace.
i agree, not for leaving negative feed back, but for being so greedy ordering 54 items, another reason some (most) glitchs dont get honoured
Totally concur with that. I've always seen glitches or the like as an opportunity to purchase something for myself only, something that I would not ordinarily purchase, not to make financial gain from.
the only time i order more that 1 of, is if i can get another delivered to my sister, like the £99 steam cleaning station glitch for £7.60 that Amazon honoured :)
steam clean station? gutted I missed out on that one :)

Any good for music?


Yes, definitely! The receiver supports high resolution audio and has built-in music eq settings which are pretty good.

I have a turntable connected to my receiver via a pre-amp (this receiver doesn't have a phono input) and the sound is fantastic.
The airplay function sounds great.
I haven tried plugging my iPod or iPhone straight into the receiver via USB.
Music over DLNA also works seamlessly.

Yes.

I have a 4100 and absolutely love if. Been thought many AV receivers, from Sony, Yamaha, Onkyo and so on. After all those, I think ill only buy Denon or Yamaha next time.

Nice deal, was hoping the avrx2300w had dropped in price, not sure I need something this good.

There's definitely a fidelity improvement in audio quality comparing the two. What speakers do you have?

surely the denon set for £149 would be a better buy?

Wharfedale has great reputation, they have a better track record as speaker manufacturer's

Better off with a refurb z5500.
Well it's not really the same thing is it. These need an AV receiver to make use of. Which has much more functionality then the PC system, Z5500.
But that's the point. you're gonna spend the same money again on an amp to drive them. Might as well just get a used/refurb z5500. Most folks will just plug the toslink into the back of the tv and have it forward dd/dts/2ch lpcm

Eeh, I have a Z5500 at my vacation home and a proper Yamaha A/V with a set that is similar to, but a little better than this. While the Z5500 is great, the difference is huge. The price difference is for good reason. Just because I like my Fiat and I would not spend more on a car, it does not mean I'll start pushing it in threads about Mercedes deals...

Hey Azza, thanks for the quick response!

I assumed the line about no leads being included was referring to speaker, SW cables etc. That's fine as I have some cables but need the SW cable and plugs.

Really appreciate the info and for posting the links too. Great when people take the time to share a good deal and knowledge.

Glad your enjoying the system, will be ordering it this week.

Are there any leads missing that you would expect to be in the package as the website says no leads included?

hi,
i bought this back a few weeks ago, very impressed with it

It doesn't come with any leads, but all you need is speaker cable + a sub cable. It was my first time wiring up speakers myself but its very easy. Had it all up and running within an hour.

What i bought:

25M Speaker Cable (great quality) - £23.40

I returned one of these about 2 years ago. Very very poor quality, no bass what so ever. Sound is just total abysmal, shame really because it looks nice.

Did you try this solution?

"You may follow the steps on the manual page 40 and 41 on how to Set the Speakers.

To adjust the speaker Level, just select LEVEL as shows on page 41. You can adjust the sound level of the speakers and set the parameters from –6.0 dB to +6.0 dB. the underlined figures are the default settings."

Hey, yeah I tried everything. I had an lg cinema system that I had before I bought one of these, which I had to adjust the bass and rear speakers volume. So... i tried sound modes, turning up the bass to max on the menu and it still sounded awful. I saw mixed reviews when I bought this a few years ago, maybe a large quantity of them where faulty? The bass was just so quite, I've bought £25 before and they where better than this.

All jokes aside is this future proof? 4k, hdmi 2.blah etc? I really need to buy one but not up on the tech yet
Nope... HDMI 2.1 is on the way ;) It won't be mass market for quite a while though.
It has loads more bandwidth for higher resolutions and refresh rates which is useful for PC gaming.
I've got a 4k TV and blu ray player I'd like to run to my big floor speakers. The connections on my TV are hdmi (2.2, ARC, 10BIT, MHL), optical and RGB. So this wouldn't be a good buy for me?

If you look at the specs listed it says no support for HDR.

Just a heads up - I spotted this thread only yesterday and immediately joined the VIP club - called up my local Richer Sounds and they had one left in stock - long story short but they were willing to honour the VIP deal "even though its not showing on our systems" - no doubt probably because it's amost four months old! Went and picked it up this lunchtime - thanks to the OP!

I've got one and it's amazing it sounds like 9.1 because there are small speakers in the top of the tall speakers, they are all wired separately from the amp. It works well with sky q. It's got good inputs and outputs and is good quality all round. I was happy paying £699.
Hi, just thought i'd comment on this.

I've had 2 of these in the last 6 months, twice the blu-ray/amp box has gone dead.
The second time I had to talk to LG who informed me it was beyond economical repair and had to be sent back to retailer. (its a 17kg box 1m long, not cheap)

Luckily both times I've had it refunded, it is a brilliant alternative to separates but just worth bearing in mind.

There is also a review on amazon stating this happened to them too.

This is also the cheapest price new.

Somehow seems overpriced even though it's cheapest currently
They've got some gall calling it a 9.1 system. More like 5.1 plus virtual channels.
You would not want uhd bluray for this kind of money?

Hot, the premium brand in home audio under 200 pound, bargain

???? Which year are you stuck in? There is nothing premium about Sony anymore, and go check the reviews, Sony Soundbars/Home Cinema are the worst bar none.

Sony's very own Forums have moderators specifically employed to delete any post criticising their Soundbars, support is terrible and the main thing above all, the sound quality is shockingly bad.

If you don't believe me, go ask any Hi-Fi shop like Richer Sounds and watch them laugh at the mention of Sony's own Soundbars not even being fully compatible with SONY's very own TVs..... I'm also speaking from experience.

I for one will never buy Sony products again, they are an outdated old school brand that just brings out flashy looking equipment with the same internal components of yester-year.

Even at this price, keep your receipt, I wish I could do a poll on just how many of you end up taking this Junk back.

You really need to read some what hi fi magazines and improve your knowledge about audio, just a search here would show you. You're probably the type of person who
Buys Onkyo !

And your the type of person that needs to learn to read. I said I have Sony and it's a terrible brand for Audio.
Oh and by the way, the Hi-Fi magazine are affiliated with a lot of brands like Sony, that's what keeps them going in return for favourable reviews, so to believe a Magazine reviews over Real world users experience kind of shows your lack of understanding ;) Always happy to educate people like u, or should I say "that'll learn ya"?

I saw this deal when posted but was too slow to act and its now finished! :o(
The playbar is overpriced at it's usual selling price of 599 (some sites are selling for 569) but last year there were offers as low as 479 - which is a fair price for this unit which only offers a single optical audio input connection.
If I see it at £512 again I will go for it but I suspect an updated version of this device may be on the way as the others in the Sonos range have been upgraded in the past 12 months or so.
They need to update the sound bar
Well for all that think it's worth it... it is... just received mine and the quality is epic.... very happy
Why are people voting cold when this is the cheapest it's been in a long, long time?

EXPIRED : The item is now OOS. Price also rose to £159 and Argos now stock at the same price.
nice deal but I'm going to have to go for a different brand perhaps.

I bought 2 samsung soundbars with wireless subs and both of them have turned out to be faulty. I now have to send the second one back now. The sub keeps disconnecting on the k450. Tried pairing it again but its not connecting back to the soundbar at all now.

Maybe its just my luck dunno but I searched online and seen others have the same problem but no fix other than the one I've already tried.
Heat but suggest you add the brand to the title.

I've got this system and sound works great with blu rays etc. Can someone tell me or give me a step by step link on how to set this up with my Sky Q as the sound through the 5.1 sound really low and crap really. I've got the optical cable connected to the sky q box to the blu ray player and hear sound from all speakers but it sounds worse than the built-in tv speaker, I've tried different settings on the sky q box and blu ray player but nothing seems to make it any better.

Thanks for any help.
It has no HDMI inputs but does have an optical input and ARC, so if you intend to use it with other entertainment devices it might be worth checking your TV specs to make sure it has ARC and can pass surround sound through it.
Good price though.
I have a Pany 5.1 3d system, not this one but I'm very happy with it. Faultless
mat2090
Are the speakers Bluetooth ?
No they are all wired. It does have a Bluetooth receiver so you can send audio to it via Bluetooth, but that's all.
I've got one of these, and to be honest id probably avoid it..
It's slow, and extremely buggy. It has moments of madness.. I've seen It be turned off.. yet outputting the menu, including the open animation if you hit the eject button, yet the tray wont open (as its not on)... It also crashes occasionally (with just garbage on the VFD display), and gets in a muddle pretty regularly about DVDs, telling you that it cant play a disc as its not compatible, yet plays it just fine after a power down and back up.

I wanted to like it.. but I just don't get on with it. If it worked right it would be a great deal.

Can you link this to a sky + box and play tv sound through it instead of buying a soundbar?
NO.. as it does not have hdmi ..
However you can connect a decive using the vcr imput terminals... (Red & White)
Modern TVs does not have it.. as were replace by hdmi and digital outputs...
I use the "Headphones" output and the Soumd system is actually really good!
Got an old 5.1 LG system.. u can not compare it's superior sound vr any sound bar system
SO... if u don't mind the additional cables... Get it!!


So you can connect this system to your TV using the headphones out port and all sound will go via the surround sound?

How's the sound quality? Base wise?
Smartguy1
Is this better than a 320 watt sound bar with sub woofer.

If you want to watch movies I would go with this, a cheap sound bar will find it hard to push the sound left and right very well and you'll have a much better experience with the back speakers too. The main issue is how your room is and if it would look cluttered with all the wires etc

Stupid deal. If this is hot then will someone please pay me £35 for my older Sony DAV setup? It's like this one minus USB input... any takers? Thought not.

Bargain. On loud mine is great, on quiet it's less impressive. I just got a sub to add some more bass, however compared to Flat screen speakers it certainly adds depth.
Brilliant bit of kit.Heat from me.
Paid £50 last Christmas and pleased with it for that, steal @£20, cheaper than a rattly Godmans. Only limited sound options, but ideal to add a bit of weight to the sound of a typical thin flat screen.

Thanks OP for posting this. I don't know whether you saved me money or cost me money though as I would never have purchased this otherwise.
Might be worth checking you definitely weren't charged individually for these.
One of the first things I did! They charged me £281.98 for the sub and £287.02 for the playbar. Not sure why they charged individually but I'm not complaining.
Well played, right result.
Let me know what its like once its all setup, thinking about getting one.

Sonos is good, especially if you already have their other speakers.

That said, both play bar and especially sub are on quite expensive side.

It's awesome. Had two Play 1's already so got those as rear speakers. If I'm perfectly honest I don't know if it would be worth full price. For the full cost to get Sonos surround sound there are probably cheaper options that would do just as good a job for what I'm mainly using it for (films). I'm no audiophile.

Few things are as exciting for film lovers as turning domestic living rooms into immersive home cinema environments. HotUKDeals explains how to create a home cinema setup, with all of the speakers, furniture, screens and players required to replicate the experience of a cinema theatre in an ordinary home at the best possible prices on our dedicated home cinema pages.

Home Cinema Deals

These days, there’s no need to visit your local multiplex to experience surround sound, wide screen footage and high definition, crystal clear visuals. If you are a serious cinema fan, the home cinema technology available today makes it easy to create an incredibly immersive, authentic movie watching experience in the comfort of your own living room.

The problem is that home cinema setups come with a hefty price tag. However, there are ways to save money on the ideal speakers, TVs, Blu-ray players and home cinema furnishings. This HotUKDeals buyer’s guide will help you find the perfect equipment for the lowest possible price.

Home Cinema System: Projector, Speakers, Seating and Movies

Cinemas have always been magical places – places where fantastic worlds come alive and viewers are transported into the lives of others. Much of this magic has been due to the kind of sonic and visual experiences that were available at cinemas, and only at cinemas. Sitting back and letting epic movies unfold in front of you was an incredible experience, but one that could only be enjoyed in the company of hundreds of others.

More recently, movie buffs have been able to purchase equipment that enables them to recreate the movie theatre experience in their own home (minus the oohs and aahs of the crowd, and the crunch of popcorn from the row behind).

The first real home cinema systems appeared in the 1980s, and consisted of bulky cathode ray tube TVs, large speakers and laser disc players. They weren’t just expensive and hard to install. They were also prone to fail and rarely delivered the kind of all-encompassing sound you’d expect from a proper cinema.

Things have moved on dramatically since then. Flat screen TVs have appeared, with massive surfaces and low profiles, turning entire walls into cinema screens. Blu-ray disc players have arrived, providing the space to hold high definition movies, without the need to swap discs halfway through. Sound formats like Dolby TrueHD have also been developed, reducing loss to a minimum, and smart speakers have also been created, making it easy to place speakers wherever they are needed.

As we move into the era of 4K visuals, the prospects for home cinema fans are bright. Now is a great time to set up your own home cinema, but what is the best way to go about doing so?

What Elements Make Up a Home Cinema Setup?

Modern home cinema setups all have several elements in common, and it’s vital that you get them all right when creating your own home theatre. Even minor sonic hiss or visual flickers can ruin the sensation of watching movies at home (and make it more attractive to head to local cinemas instead), and buying the equipment itself isn’t cheap. Here are the key elements that you need to consider:

  • The TV/home cinema screen – What sets home cinemas apart from ordinary living rooms is the size of the TV screen that the use. Choose a flat screen OLED or LCD TV (preferably OLED), with at least a screen size of 32 inches, and think about including 3D capabilities as well.
  • AV Receivers – Audio-visual receivers link together all of the pieces in the home cinema puzzle, allowing the speakers to talk to the TV and the TV to talk to the Blu-ray player. They need to be reliable, powerful and have enough connections to fit your player, TV, speakers and other devices like gaming systems.
  • Audio outputs – Sound is just as important as vision when you are putting together a home cinema setup. You’ll need a system with pre-amps, amplifiers and speakers to get the best possible audio experience, and the right speaker enclosures to dampen any vibrations. Smart speaker setups like Sonos are also ideal but there are a number of specialist home cinema audio products that merit consideration.
  • Players – You can’t have a home cinema without a way to play movies, but which way works best? Given that most home cinemas double up as ordinary TV watching spaces, it’s best to go for a Blu-ray player with the ability to double up as a smart TV box, which can connect to the internet. With an internet connection, you may also be able to stream movies from online services like Netflix or Amazon Prime Instant Video (or YouTube), adding to the choices available.
  • Lighting – The way you light your home cinema will have a major impact on how the screen looks and how user friendly the whole space is. You don’t want total darkness, but you certainly need to avoid any glare on the screen. A few hooded wall lights or freestanding lamps in the corners of the room are usually enough. If you can dim them via remotes or smart controllers, that’s even better.
  • Furniture – Finally, you’ll need somewhere to sit. One of the best reasons for investing in a home cinema centre is that you can add softer, plusher, more inviting seats to your environment, instead of squeezing into cinema seats.

Those are the basic elements of a home cinema system, and we’ll look at them in a little more detail below. Before that, it’s worth reiterating that to get really good results, all of these elements need to be considered as a whole. Try to visualise how they will fit together in the space you have, and you’ll enjoy much better results.

The Major Types of Home Cinema Systems

The various elements in a home cinema system can be combined in a number of different ways, each of them having their strengths and weaknesses. Here are the most common arrangements:

  • All in One systems – Here, you’ll buy most of the equipment you need in one package, usually from a single manufacturer like Bose, Samsung, Logitech or Sony. The kit should have the speakers, cables and amps you need, and usually come with a Blu-ray player too, although you will need to choose a TV, and furniture isn’t part of the deal. This is the most convenient and accessible way to get started, and is ideal for novices.
  • 2.1 or 3.1 arrangements – In these home cinema systems, you’ll receive either two or three speakers (and a subwoofer), which are simply placed by the side of the room (generally without rear speakers). You’ll loose the pure surround sound experience, but the setup will be cheaper and much more powerful than simply ratcheting up the TV volume.
  • 5.1 or 7.1 arrangements – More of a classic home cinema setup, with 5.1 or 7.1 systems, you’ll get the two or three side speakers, along with satellite speakers to place at the rear of (and sometimes above) the viewer. Dolby’s audio systems also work on at least a 5.1 standard – meaning that most film soundtracks will have five separate channels. With five speakers (and the right audio processing equipment), you can hear each one of those channels perfectly clearly, just as the film-makers intended. This creates a genuinely immersive cinema-style sound system and is the gold standard for home cinemas at the current time, so if you have the money, it’s definitely the setup to aim for.
  • Hybrid arrangements – Obviously, there’s scope to experiment with different ratios of speakers, but try to stick to the recommendations of manufacturers. They will know how to balance their products against each other, without losing the sonic harmony needed for cinema audio. You may also find it useful to add a soundbar to your TV, something which can supplement weaker 2.1 or 3.1 systems without the need to spend big on more speakers.

Choosing the Right Audio Equipment

What speaker setup is right for your home? That’s the question you really need to ask and each living room will have a subtly different answer.

Firstly, let’s be clear that it’s hard to create a home cinema experience in rooms that are too large or too cramped. Most living rooms (at around 5 x 5m ) will be fine but open plan spaces will never be ideal, and spaces that are too small will just feel claustrophobic with speakers all around the viewer.

If you have the right dimensions, you’ll need to choose a 2.1/3.1 or 5.1/7.1 style arrangement. Most purists will tell you that you’ll need at least five speakers – two by the side of the TV, one underneath (which could be a soundbar) and two satellite speakers to the side or behind.

Speaker placement really matters. Those at the front need to be angled towards the sitter (ideally as tower speakers with the tweeter at ear level). The centre speaker should be in line with the sitter, either above or below the TV and the satellite speakers should be at the side of the viewer, facing towards them.

Satellite speakers also need to be properly anchored, whether that’s to the wall or in freestanding speaker cases.

If you go for a 7.1 setup, the rear speakers have to be behind the sitter, facing forward, preferably a couple of feet above ear level.

As for the subwoofer, it’s best placed in a corner, touching one or more walls (which amplifies the bass notes). The size of woofer you go for will be dependent upon the size of your room. Larger rooms require a 12-inch woofer or greater, while smaller woofers will be fine for compact settings.

How to Choose the Right Display for Your Home Cinema

When you’ve chosen the right speakers and woofers, it makes sense to think about the TV. You’ve probably got a flat screen TV right now, but that doesn’t make it ideal for using as part of a home cinema setup.

For one thing, if you bought your TV more than two years ago, it almost certainly doesn’t support 4K video and it probably isn’t an OLED model. If you are serious about achieving a home cinema feel, both are probably vital. 4K resolution is noticeably better when you are dealing with larger screens, while the contrast supplied by OLED TVs beats cheaper LCD screens every time.

However, don’t just leap for the largest TV you can afford. Naturally, you’ll want the largest screen possible, but it needs to be practical for the space at your disposal. There’s no sense in buying a 100-inch screen that only just fits into a 15-foot square living room.

Thankfully, it’s not hard to work out the optimum screen size for your living space. In fact, there’s a simple formula: just divide the distance between the viewer (or the cinema seat) and the TV by between 2 and 3. There’s no need to be scientifically accurate, just in the right ballpark, but remember to measure the distance in inches. So, for example, if you are sitting 200 inches from the screen, the TV could be between 70 and 100 inches wide. If you are only 100 inches from the screen that drops to between 33 and 50 inches.

Getting the distance wrong can ruin the proportions of your home cinema space and cost a lot of money to fix, so plan ahead diligently when mapping out your home cinema design. It’s worth it.

If you want to think really radically, you could even consider installing a projector screen and digital projector in your home cinema room. Projectors provide the largest screen size of all, and also give a neat sense of being in an authentic cinema. However, be sure to check the throw distance (how far the screen should be from the projector) matches to your room size. You’ll also need darker conditions, so make sure your home cinema room can achieve blackout conditions before making the purchase.

Comfort is Key: Advice About Home Cinema Furnishings

Now, let’s think about comfort. Sure, the audio and visual qualities of home cinema systems set them apart from ordinary living rooms, but it’s the comfort of the furnishings that really makes them special.

The style of your home cinema room is up to you (although it might be nice to go for traditional red seats and dimmable bright lights around the screen, just to round off the cinema experience.

However, there are some practical things to think about when kitting out your cinema space. For one thing, the furnishings will have acoustic consequences. This includes pre-existing walls, which you may want to soften with drapes or curtains to perfect the acoustic performance of your speakers. You can also purchase acoustic panels (the type you’ll find in actual cinemas), which are specifically designed to allow sound to circulate.

When it comes to the seating, this isn’t as simple as buying the most luxurious recliner around. Remember that the height of the speakers makes a big difference to acoustic performance. The centre speaker should be around ear height, and the rear speakers just above. So don’t choose a seat that raises you too much (or too little). Ear height should be just below the viewing screen.

Lighting also matters. As we’ve noted above, low light levels are really important (especially if you use a projector). But complete darkness isn’t ideal. That’s because it can lead to eye strain and doesn’t actually show off the picture quality of OLED flat screens at its best.

Instead of shutting out light completely, consider adding a couple of subtle backlights behind or just to the side of the TV. Their gentle illumination will complement the contrast of the TV, making it seem clearer in a process known as “bias lighting.”

Aside from that, you’re free to style your home cinema however you wish. However, never lose sight of the practical aspects. Pay attention to speaker housings and cable routing, as well as backlighting and sound dampening, and think a little about how high your ear-level will be - and you’ll be all set.

Mistakes to Avoid When Setting up a Home Cinema

Let’s quickly recap the no-no’s of setting up a home cinema system, just to make sure we know what to buy, and how to set it up.

  • Get the lighting right – Almost, but not quite dark. Use dimmable backlights to get the perfect ambient light level.
  • Measure your speaker distances – This lets you place your seat and TV in exactly the right position.
  • Don’t buy the wrong TV – Always measure your space and buy a TV that suits the space!
  • Position the TV properly – Just above eye/ear level is fine. Any higher, and you’ll crane your neck.
  • Buy appropriate speakers – Large rooms need larger speakers. Smaller rooms, not so much. Fill the space required, nothing more.

Aside from those things to remember, it’s also important to source a reliable surge protector to ensure that your home cinema equipment is safe and sound. It doesn’t cost much, but a good surge protector can prevent thousands of pounds’ worth of damage.

Can You Approach the Home Cinema Experience With Cheaper Equipment?

Can you achieve the home cinema experience on the cheap and can you actually find discount surround sound? As this buyer’s guide will have explained, there’s a wide variation in how people set up their home theatres, and some are cheaper than others. For instance, a couple of speakers and a sound bar constitute a “home cinema”. Are they cheaper than a Dolby 7.1 system? Absolutely. They won’t create the same audio-visual experience, but they beat a simple TV on its own.

How much you spend on your setup will reflect your budget (obviously) but also how serious you are about the project. Don’t go overboard, if all you want is a more potent sound system or a bigger TV screen. For many people, the novelty of surround sound can wear off, and having so much equipment in their living rooms can become somewhat impractical. So think about your options. If you still feel like bringing the movies home – go right ahead.
