There are literally hundreds of home theater systems available on the market today. The prices varies a lot from a few hundred dollars to more than $100,000 for the very high-end home theater systems.

Obviously, with such a wide variety of choices, it can be difficult sometimes to determine which home theater system is the best. It does not always mean more expensive home theater systems are better.

Here are a few tips to help you make a better decision on which home theater system you should buy.

A branded home theater system may not be necessary. Brands such as Bang & Olefsen costs a lot more because of their brand. You can get a home theater system with the same bells and whistles without the high price tag.

Take your time to check out other brands that have the same features.

It is important you know before buying a home theater system what you plan to use it for and where you intend to place it.

Some features such as Pro Dolby Digital or 7 point surround sound may not be that important to you. If you are going to watch movies, then the above features are necessary depending on the location of your home.

Another important point is the size and location where the home theater system is placed. If you are placing it in a large room which is not enclosed, then a surround sound system may not be that effective. If you are buying a home projection TV but you can't dim or off the lights when watching, then it is really not advisable to buy a projection TV since it will not work well.

The installation of the home theater system is also important. It is not as simple as wiring all the different components together. The placement and the location of the home theater system can affect the quality. Some home theater systems also needs to be calibrated before using to achieve the optimal conditions.

If this sounds complicated to you, you can request for an installation service. Most home theater stores provide such service. However, you need to factor in the cost of the installation into your budget as well.
