Home theatre starts with your TV. A big, clear picture is must-have, and bigger is usually better. Choose 4K or OLED for the latest TV picture technology, and pay attention to smart TV features if you're interested in streaming content. If you've got a dedicated home theatre room and you really want to go big, consider a projector that can produce theatre-like images on screens measuring as big as 100" or more.
Blu-ray players, 4K media players, and smart set-top boxes — these are all examples of video sources that will provide the audio/video content you'll play on your home theatre system. These devices provide a wide variety of entertainment options — many connect to the Internet so you’ll be able to stream content like Netflix®.
A receiver is the center of your home theatre system. In addition to providing surround sound processing and the power to drive your speakers, today’s home theatre receivers act as a connection hub for all of your of audio/video sources and your TV. Many of our current receiver models let you control your system wirelessly using a mobile app and some let you stream music from the Internet.
Speakers connect to your receiver to produce the sound you’ll hear. A traditional surround sound system consists of at least five speakers plus a powered subwoofer. You have plenty of options when it comes to speakers, from floor-standing towers to in-ceiling models to complete surround sound speaker packages.
You can build your own speaker system, or choose a pre-matched system. These convenient systems are powered by your receiver and deliver immersive sound. They take the guesswork out of knowing which speakers will sound good together.Shop surround sound speaker systems
Dolby Atmos is a cutting-edge surround sound format that was developed to give movie soundtracks a more three-dimensional effect. It creates a "height" layer of sound above the listener. Available for a growing list of movie titles and supported by many newer home theatre receivers, Dolby Atmos delivers the most lifelike surround sound we've heard yet.Shop Dolby Atmos
People frequently ask us about wireless surround speakers. No home theatre speaker is truly wireless, because it will need to get power from somewhere. However, some home theatre systems feature a wireless transmitter that sends audio signals from the receiver to the speakers in the rear of your room. This eliminates the need to run speaker wire from the front to the back of your room. These speakers usually connect to a wireless receiver that goes in the back of your room and plugs into an AC wall outlet for power.Shop wireless surround speakers
Sound bars are simple to set up, and they're great when you don't have a lot of room for speakers. Many consist of one long, slim speaker that sits beneath your TV plus a subwoofer to provide low-frequency punch. You get much better sound than your TV's built-in speakers can offer.Shop sound bars
