How to Choose a Home Audio System
- by Karl
When buying a home theater system there’s a few things to keep in mind. This process can be complicated with all the components that are involved with home audio. It’s always a good idea to make sure your investments are future proof. The best way to do this is by researching and finding out whats next in home audio. Get information on 3D ready receivers, or receivers that measure your room, by auto tuning. This process automatically matches sound to your speakers and room size. Learn about smart TVs that connect to the internet for online entertainment. These are just a few things to keep in mind when looking for home audio.

When you buy a home theater in a box, it comes ready with color coded plugs that make installation fast and easy. These systems are factory tuned so everything works well together. This would be a quick fix to home theater entertainment. If you have a little knowledge about home audio and know what name brands you like, or what look you want. Than purchasing separate components might be a good option for you.
There are a couple key elements to think about. HI-FI Blue-Ray DVD players that come with built in WI-FI and USB slots. These slots allow you to plug and play music, picture or videos.

Today there are many receivers to choose from. Onkyo, Samsung, Sony, and Yamaha just to name a few. Most of these receivers share the same types of features.

Some receivers have more slots that allow you to hook up more components (like 4 or 5 HDMI In/Out slots, or sub woofer out slots). With some receivers you can control the volume of each component right from your remote control. If you have a lot of components in your system than this is something to pay attention to. Satellite radio and iPod hook ups are some great features to look for.
When buying a home audio receiver keep in mind the things you may add to your system in the future. Make sure you have extra slots for all your future purchases.
