Overview

Watching movie in a theater might be enjoyable, but may be costly. And the experience might also be irritating, if the crowd that you are sitting with is unruly and boisterous.

Overview

Watching movie in a theater might be enjoyable, but may be costly. And the experience might also be irritating, if the crowd that you are sitting with is unruly and boisterous. When you go to a theatre you spend quite a good amount of money, to relax, and to be at peace. But, the whole fun is spoiled when people sitting behind talks or their mobile phone starts ringing. To my mind, when one goes to a cinema either the cell phone must be switched off or put on silent mode or, one should better watch the movies when it is available on cassette.
Thanks to surround sound technology, today people prefer to watch cinema at home without leaving the comforts of the house, and completely at peace with oneself. Instead of wasting their precious time and hard earned money by going to a theater, people turn their homes into theater. Surround sound serves two purposes, it makes movie watching a happier experience and if you are not an avid movie watcher, it amplifies the experience of watching television.

    The title should be "How to Buy a Home Theater" as most of the book is about choosing the various components. It contains good basic information for people who know nothing about home theaters. However it has no actual product information. One of the many magazine product roundup and reviews issues will be needed to supplement this book. But when it comes to setting one up, the book contains little details and details is what it is needed if you decide to set one up yourself. Fortunately the Nook book is cheap as you will need another book if you decide to install your home theater yourself. However if you decide to hire someone to do it for you, this book may be all you need.
