The kind of use that you are going to put the system to is an important consideration while buying them. A wide variety among them is available ranging from the basic one with five assorted speakers to ones that come with projectors and the capability to control the lighting in the particular room. In case you intent to go for an assembled system, you should ensure that each of the devices such as the speakers etc. are manufactured by the same company to get a good quality sound and picture. But then, a skilled individual can always build his own system with an assortment of speakers and still achieve an enjoyable experience. Controlling the system becomes easier if all the devices come from the same manufacturing company.

The basic components of a home cinema system are the amplifier, built in radio, a DVD/CD player that may come along with the system or may have to be bought separately, a recorder and of course the speakers that are five or more in number. Such a system can be then connected to a TV or to a projector as desired.

A large variety is available among them depending on the quality of sound and picture, the connectivity it offers etc. All these options tend to be confusing. With regards to the sound, the various options available are surround sound, Dolby Digital etc. the more the number of channels that have been set, the greater surround effect is observed. Regarding the speakers, they do not need to be of a very high quality but should come along with a sub woofer. The arrangement of the speakers is important though and information regarding the same will be available in the user manual.

The cheap systems come in the form of one box and do not offer much functionality. They offer limited connectivity hence may not work with all systems. The speakers available with them are usually made of plastic. Thus, if your expectations from such a system are low, it would probably suffice.

If you can afford to spend more amount of money on the system, then a system of much better quality would be available. With it you can opt for speakers that suit the layout of your particular room. Also, a vast choice of players and receivers will be available. The more expensive the system, more are the features that come along with it.

It is advisable to put the system through rigorous quality checks regarding sound and picture quality before choosing it. The other features offered by the system should also be kept in mind.
