Home Entertainment with Star Wars

Home Entertainment with Star Wars By Craig Friesen

Imagine being able to cringe under the dark gaze of Darth Vader in your own home. Today you can with the incredible technology advances in home theatre entertainment.

In the past the only place you could have a quality movie experience was in the theatre. Sure, if you had $8,000 or more you could have created a home entertainment system that made you the envy of your friends. These days the cost of home entertainment is much lower while the quality of home theatre entertainment has risen.

Good Home Theatre Entertainment

So what makes a home entertainment system worthy of Star Wars? The two key criteria that must be met by home entertainment enthusiasts are sound and picture. Basically, if you can separate sound from the television then you have started on the path to movie-like home theatre entertainment. If you have never attached your television to your stereo then you will soon understand how easy it is to approach movie theatre standards. From there it is a matter of preference and price. How much are you willing to spend on home entertainment? Will you stick with one electronics brand or mix-and-match home entertainment system components? Should you go with DVD or projector? For many the ultimate experience is with a plasma TV, but others would say any widescreen TV capable of high definition will make even the most avid Star Wars enthusiasts satisfied.

Home Entertainment System Simplicity

Two years ago I went shopping for a home theatre entertainment system. After pricing out all the individual electronic components to make up a quality home entertainment system, I came across a simple concept as shocking as an evil Jedi Knight. Home entertainment in-a-box is an excellent concept if you want a quality home theatre entertainment experience without the exorbitant costs. Just add the TV of your choice and you have everything you need for a Star Wars movie marathon.
