AV equipment part –



AV gear is the first and most important part of any home system. AV gear consists of speakers, amplifier. In Av gear, you also need a media player or a gaming console. The last part of AV gear is your video equipment like a screen projector or TV. As we are talking about Home Theater we will stick more with the projector screen and a little less with the TV.

Cables and the audio-video equipment always go hand in hand. One thing that you have to consider when you are planning for a home theatre is consultation because you can’t just place a speaker anywhere on the wall. You have to find the right location for it. When you know the location of the speaker based on calculation then you will get an idea of how much cable you need and what types of cable you should use.
