Basic Connections When Installing a Home Theater System
January 12, 2019
How to own a perfect home theater system? In order to do this, you must prepare the appropriate and varied connection ports. Here are some basic connections you need to consider if you want to install a home theater system.
Connections to consider when buying a home theater system are HDMI, USB, MHL and other wireless connections that are integrated by manufacturers.
First of all, HDMI is often the most important connection port to pay attention to when selecting a home theater. Normally for systems that support Blu-ray standard, there will be at least 1 HDMI port and 1 output port for TV. However, users should select sound systems with 2 or more HDMI ports.
Through the USB connection, users can play music and images. Some systems support reading HD movie formats such as AVCHD, DIVX, WMV and MKV from external hard drives via USB. Some formats compress music from CDs into MP3 files and copy directly to storage devices via USB port.
Current audio-visual devices also need to add another connection standard, MHL (Mobile High Definition Link). This connection standard helps to transmit sound and images from a device that emits an external monitor.
Many home theater systems also include wireless connectivity such as Wi-Fi connectivity depending on price range. The advantage of this connection is that users can access the content stored in computers connected to the same network without the need to invest in discrete HD playback devices.
Not only that, without getting too many wires, users can choose the staging units using wireless speakers and wireless subwoofer. However, there are also many experts that the quality of these connected devices cannot be compared with those of traditional speaker wiring.
If you carefully prepare all of the above basic connection ports, enjoying your home theater movies will be much more convenient.
