Your home is your sanctuary and your place of rest, and when you are there to entertain yourself, your family or your guests, you want to make it a pleasurable experience for everyone. Some people try to entertain using board games, while others like to socialise around a fire and talk nonsense until the early hours of the morning.
If it is just you and your family or some close friends then you can entertain with movies and popcorn while everyone crawls under a nice warm duvet. That alone is usually fun enough for everyone there, but if you can watch on a bigger screen, with full surround sound and perhaps even 3D effects, you can take your home movie experience to a whole new level with the right audiovisual equipment.
In fact, you can set the whole thing up to a point that you actually have your own movie theatre at home and you never have to go to the movie house ever again. Unless of course, it is for something new that has just been released.
A decent home entertainment system just requires a good size screen and audible sound to enjoy the movie from your couch, but if you can add to the effect by including additional speakers to your surround sound and perhaps even buying a 3D televisions that enhances the image to make it life like and get you more involved in the whole story.
Home cinemas will never be complete without a nice big screen to watch all your movies on, and there you have a choice between a flat screen LCD/LED display or you can opt for a projector. The screens will definitely give you a much clearer picture with much higher definition than any projector can, but a projector is more cost effective when it comes to big displays.
Full surround sound requires an amplifier and controller to handle the sound properly. If you want to be able to hear people behind you in the movie or there is a scene with a helicopter and you need to hear it flying above you, then it is possible to do that. The combination of the surround sound with 3D imaging on high definition televisions can really enhance your movie experience quite nicely.
With a decent budget and a bit of careful thought and planning, you can set up your own home theatre with the right audiovisual equipment, and never have to worry about entertainment ever again.
