Enjoy HD Movies with 5.1 Channels on Home Theater Systems

Published on by transcode-video


Do you want to watch high quality movies at home, without going to the theater, but still enjoy the experience like that in theater? A home theater system is a combination of electronic components designed to recreate the experience of watch a movie in a theater. Think about the sound experience, the large-size movie screen in the theater, and you can easily get yours with a "home theater in a box" system with several hundred bucks, if you have a large-screen television at least 27 inches.




A home theater in a box system includes a set of speakers for surround sound, an amplifier/tuner for decoding surround sound information to appropriate speaker, and sometimes DVD Player. The general surround sound could be 5.1 surround-sound setup or 7.1 surround-sound setup. A 5.1 setup includes front left, front center, front right speaker, rear left, rear right speaker, and a subwoofer to carry low-frequency sound at the ".1". Thus, 5.1 indicate 5 speakers plus a subwoofer.

While there are some videos in the formats not supported by the player or television, we shall convert video to TV format. To enjoy movies in high quality, keeping the 5.1 channels, it is recommended to keep the AC3 with 5.1 channels.

This program is such a great help. This means that we get to enjoy watching more movies using our home theaters considering that a lot of movies downloaded on the net are only watchable using
computers. Thanks for sharing.
