Looking for 2018 Home Theater System Black Friday Deals?
If you’re looking for home theater system Black Friday deals, the chances are that you’ve got a good quality TV, but your sound doesn’t compliment the picture quality. This is all too common, and a high-quality home theater system has the potential to greatly improve your entertainment experience. Whether you want a cinematic movie night or you’re a hardcore gamer, a surround sound home theater system can create a much more immersive experience.
If you have decided that you want to invest in a home theater system on Black Friday, there are a number of things to consider. Price is an obvious factor, and we do recommend waiting for potential Home Theater System Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, but there are also several other things to consider.
- Amplifier and Speakers – every home theater system should include these! They should work right out the box without much technical configuration, such as matching your speakers to the amplifier.
- Wired or Wireless – you need to decide whether you want wired or wireless speakers. If your setup means that it will be difficult to hide the wires, then wireless might be better.
- Connectivity – do you have multiple devices to setup? A console? Netflix? Blue-ray player? You should decide what you want to connect to your home theater system before you purchase. Most home theater systems will have one or multiple HDMI ports which allow you to connect external devices, but just make sure you are clear on what you plan to connect to your system.
- Surround Sound Layout – as a home theater is designed for a cinematic experience, most will be designed to be surround sound. The most common configuration is 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound. What is the difference between 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound I hear you ask?! The .1 refers to a sub woofer for extra base, and the first number is for the number of speakers. For instance, a 5.1 system has one speaker in the middle, two front and two rear speakers, and then one sub woofer.
