Home theatres at Vijay Sales

There was a time when you had to watch a movie in a theatre to enjoy good sound. But since the 1980s, we’ve been able to enjoy cinematic sound in our homes, thanks to the invention of multi-channel audio systems, also known as home theatre systems. A home theatre system typically includes a TV, a video source, a receiver and speakers. This powerful combination channels crystal-clear audio and surround sound, elevating the listening experience.

The home theatre systems of today are vastly different from their 1980s counterparts. They are more powerful, more durable and a lot more functional. New speaker combinations and types have been added to the basic home theatre set-up to channel better sound. Before investing in an audio system for your home, you should consider things like the number and type of speakers you would like to have, where you’re going to place the speakers and connectivity options your system should have. Apart from this, you should also check the brand and home theatre price before purchasing.

Number of speakers

The most common home theatre system has 5 speakers and 1 subwoofer. It is called a 5.1 system with 5 referring to the number of channels or speakers and 1 denoting the presence of a subwoofer. Similarly, you can have 4.1 or even 9.1 systems. A traditional 5.1 home theatre system will have the front left and right speakers, a centre speaker and surround sound left and right speakers. However, if you have a smaller room, you could use a 2.1 channel system and enjoy great sound. Philips has some powerful systems with this configuration.

Types of speakers

Before selecting speakers for your unit, think about where you’re going to place them. Tower speakers can be placed on the floor and are ideal for larger rooms as they have large acoustic chambers that create a powerful sound. You could opt for in-wall or bookshelf speakers or even soundbars if you’re looking for space-saving options.

Speaker functions

Now that you know the number and types of speakers available, understand their different functions. This will help you decide on the speakers you want your system to have.

  • Centre channel - The centre channel speaker is the most important speaker in your system. It can be placed over or under your TV. A high-quality centre channel speaker will help you hear movie dialogues clearly.
  • Left and right speakers – They channel dialogue as well as sound effects. They are the backbone of your home theatre system.
  • Surround sound speakers – They pick up on ambient sounds like rain or wind as well as directional effects like a car zooming past or a train chugging on.
  • Subwoofers – Most of them have an amplifier built in. Subwoofers provide deep bass, enhancing your movie viewing experience. They are also great for playing video games or watching a concert. Pick subwoofers that provide a good bass definition for good-quality audio.


Check the types and number of connectivity ports available on your A/V receiver. The latest models come with HDMI which offers support for Audio Return Channel or ARC, 3D video and Ethernet. Look for A/V receivers that come with at least 3 HDMI ports so that you can connect multiple devices like a laptop, gaming console, etc. Some systems come with an AUX cable which can be used to connect your TV or mobile phone to your home theatre system.

Home theatre price and brand

Home theatre systems can be expensive, but they are worth every penny as they can greatly enhance your movie-viewing experience. At Vijay Sales, you can select a wide variety of systems at different price ranges. When it comes to brands, Sony and Philips systems are the best because of their durability and sound quality.

Now that you know all about home theatre systems, invest in one that’s ideal for your home and turn your living room into your personal theatre.
