The heart of your home cinema system, your AV receiver/amplifier takes the signal outputted by your source and splits it into 5.1 channel (Dolby Digital) or even 6.1 channel (Dolby Digital EX) surround sound. This all-important unit controls the volume of your system, and which source you're listening to.
Video/DVD combis are ideal if you want a VCR and a DVD, but don't have much space, or many inputs left on your amplifier. Although they are exceptional value for money, a separate DVD player and video recorder will offer slightly better performance.
If you can't be bothered with home cinema separates but want surround sound, an all-in-one DVD package system may be the answer for you. Not quite as good quality as a bespoke separates system, but an easy solution.
If you haven't yet experienced DVD quality, you are in for a treat! Better than watching videos in the same way that listening to a CD player is better than listening to a cassette deck. See the 'portables' section for portable DVD players.
For the ultimate 'wow' factor, you've got to get one of these. Get that cinema feeling in your living room with the latest in viewing technology. Be the envy of all your friends with one of these desirable, yet affordable flat screens.
Speakers take signal from your source units, via your amplifier, and spread sound around your chosen environment. They come in all shapes and sizes, from small and dinky bookshelfers, or elegant floorstanders.
