I have finally got a decent Home Theatre system at home a Sony 600 W (RMS) TZ 215, Home Theatre System .. I got the HTS from www.flipkart.com
|The Sony TZ 215, Home Theatre System ..|
This is the best link on speaker placement from Dolby systems.
|Speaker placement for the 5.1 HTS ..|
The distance from the TV screen to the "sweet spot" is
app 6-8 ft, from ears to TV screen. The speakers height need
to be arranged at listening height, the rear surround L and R,
2 ft above the height of ears.. The sub woofer O/P which catches all
low freq sound at < 80 hz is non-directional and hence sub-woofer
placement is by moving it around the room for proper bass.
I already have a 32" Toshiba LCD, HD ready to get best viewing quality. More than buying the most expensive audio systems around, it is very important how well we arrange the speakers to get a theatre like surround system in our homes, how simple be it .. Given that this system has both Dolby and DTS sound, and a perfect A/V amplifier built in, this is true value for money !!
How to set the speakers from audioholics .. (another link ..)
If I had some more money, as my b-i-law was cajoling me, could have gone for a slightly advanced set. ( He has a 7.1 fully home built system, Onkyo circuitry, with Bose speakers system ..) But then technology changes and one would not like to get checkmated with obsolete equipments if one spends a fortune on a sound system.
With covered floor and thick curtains covering the windows, with enough wall hangings, one can be assured of getting the best acoustic effect in the front room which ensures that there is no unnecessary reflection of sound waves in the room.
