Home Theatre Cost
Having the remote controller in one hand and resting the body on couch, we all tend to watch our favorite shows or movies on a weekend. In this HD century, our appetite for the quality of audio and video has evolved so far. Nowadays, we can’t enjoy our favorite shows in 480p quality, can we?
It is common to have at least a home theatre setup in a house because a TV alone can’t give us entertainment these days.
All about Home Theatre systems
The answer is in the question already. A home theatre system can define as the setup of Audio and Video devices which brings the theatre-like media experience at home. It is all about your taste though you can install a small home theater with 32 inches TV and 5.1 audio-output or a HD Projector with central advanced woofer audio system.
Generally, a home theater system is made of three main parts:
- Video output: TV, Projector or Screens for brilliant picture quality
- Audio output: Speakers for realistic sound experience
- Media source: Set-up box, Computers, media servers etc. which is the linkage for all the connected devices
Cost for Home Theatre
Actually, classifying the home theatres is tough work, because there are bunch of things to consider for the classification.
Two main types of Home theatre systems are as follows:
- Custom home theatre systems cost anywhere from $1500 to $35000
- Assembled home theatre systems cost about $1000 to $25000
Customs system can be personalized as wanted output. Costs vary according to the selection of devices. A system would give you goose-bumps if it contains 4K/ UHD (Ultra HD) screen and multi-woofer sound with amplifier configuration but, it would cost you higher than basic home theatre systems like about $15000.
Assembled (Ready-made) home theatre systems will require less time for selection and installation. Assembled systems are easy to choose with lower cost. If you want a good combination of media devices for your home theatre without ruining your budget, then you should go for assembled systems. As per my personal experience, I can say that you will get fewer options to choose compared to customized systems but, you can get your desired home theatre system with lower cost if you go for assembled systems.
