Home cinema

No, it doesn’t involve selling popcorn to strangers off of the street! Home cinema has come to be a catch-all term for a system that plays music and movies with a TV or projector and an external speaker system of some kind, usually surround sound. The whole idea is to recreate as accurately as possible the picture and sound quality of a cinema auditorium. Filmmakers want their work to be showcased in all its glory, with not a line of dialogue missed or a pixel out of place and a home cinema is just the tool for the job – in fact, you’d be surprised at how easy it is to build a seriously impressive sounding system.
