Here's a good book which simplifies all the key concepts and knowledge that you need to learn about home theater systems. It describes what home theater is and gives you all the components needed for creating your own home theater system. The book discusses off-the-air broadcasts, the latest DVD players, satellite dish technology, large-screen tubes, projection sets, aspect ratios, comb filter, and more.
Of course, it details the steps you need to take when hooking up your home theater system's components together complete with diagrams on the right way of making the necessary connections, including the setting up of a satellite receiver and TV antenna.
The book also features a section discussing the latest advances in surround sound, from Dolby Pro-Logic to Dolby Digital 5.1 and THX, tips on planning the layout of the room where your home theater will reside, and, most importantly, tips on maintaining and troubleshooting your home theater systems.
