It wasn’t that long ago that home theater systems used elaborate cord systems that looked like slithering black snakes on the floor. You wanted surround sound? You had to be ready to trip over cords in the dark because cords were all we had. If you didn’t want cords, you couldn’t get sound. That’s just how things were. Today, however, things are different. Finally, thanks to technology, we have the wireless home theater system. Now you can watch movies in style in a cordless environment without the fear of tripping, and without having to buy rugs and position furniture just right to hide unsightly cords. The future is finally here.
However, if you hope to create the ultimate home theater, you need to know how to set up a wireless system correctly.
TV and Cable/Satellite
Your TV and Cable/Satellite box will have to be plugged in. Can’t get around yet, but that’s probably coming soon, too. However, you can a Bluray, DVD player, X Box, Playstation 3, Wii, or any other console that allows you to play Bluray and DVD movies. Most of these listed come with wireless controllers.
That’s the easiest part when it comes to setting up a wireless home theater system, but the hardest part of a wireless system is the speakers. While some speakers are close to the TV and console where the sound originates, some speakers need to be all the way across the room. Not only that, but they must lead from the center of one wall, straight back through the living room area if you want surround sound.
With wireless speakers, this is no longer a problem. Wireless speakers use receivers that plug into the back of your console or TV and you no longer have to be worried about tripping over cords or about decorating another way.
Your sound will still be smooth and crisp, you’ll hear every twig snap and every floorboard creak, you just won’t have to put up with the pesky cords.
The only drawback to a wireless home theater system is the cost. It doesn’t take much to set up a system. Most of the wireless systems can be purchased together as a set. You just plug them in and go. But you have to be prepared to pay for this convenience. Unfortunately, as new technology comes out, it’s usually pretty costly. But, as everything, that price will come down.
The best thing you can do is save up and hope that the prices drop now that you know how to set up the perfect wireless home theater system. Then you’ll be able to watch movies in true theater style without having to deal with the high ticket prices and rowdy crowds. That’s the only way to enjoy a good movie.
