What components do you need for a home theater system?

It takes more than a big TV to recreate the experience of a movie theater. You will need to start with the TV or video projector and screen, of course, but you’ll likely need other items, such as:

  • A home theater receiver to process the surround sound system
  • Cable or satellite box if you want connection to networks
  • Video source (4K media players, Blu-ray player, Apple TV, Roku, etc.)
  • Subwoofer, soundbars and speakers positioned strategically around the room
  • Comfortable seating and lighting
