Home Theater Systems in India at The Revolver Club
A home theater system is your very own mini theater brought home to deliver a completely immersive movie watching experience. The Revolver club has some of the best solutions one can find when looking for a home theater system online in India. Their online retail store has a movie enthusiast’s package, some amazing high fidelity audio system and everything that you would need to put together a home theater system. But the real question is what does one need to buy to put together their very own home theater system.
When you sit in a theatre to watch a movie, what is the first thing you observe in a movie hall? You notice that the sound comes from all sides as intended by the filmmaker. So if someone is calling out a character on screen from the back, you can too hear the person behind you. And when a vehicle passes by, you can track the movement even with your eyes closed. This is called a surround sound experience.
With incredible High-Resolution TVs hitting the market with impressive picture quality, watching movies at home is no longer a compromise. Then why is it that a theater feels more immersive than watching movies at home on your large screens or projectors? The surround sound of your home theater system is what makes your movie watching experience immersive, as it creates a 3D map in your mind of the scene that you are watching. So, even though the characters are just in front of you visually, you can still hear what's happening around them, around you.
A movie theatre is much more intricate than just a projector, a set of speakers around you, and those cozy recliner chairs. Any movie hall accounts for the dimensions, the height of the ceiling, the acoustics of the room and the smart placement of the speakers. Remember there is nothing that stands between you and the speakers: no furniture, no human being, nothing. In order to emulate the movie theater experience at home, you need to make sure that everything is in place just like a movie theatre.
So, once you have your visual component in place, here is a list of things you need to buy for making yourself the best home theater system
Home Theater Receiver (Your Amplifier / A/V Receiver / Surround Sound Receiver)
A DVD Player, preferably a Blu-ray player or a player that plays Ultra HD Discs.
Media Streamer(nowadays the smart TVs can stream leading streaming options, or you can check out options like Amazon Fire TV Stick, Chromecast, Apple TV, etc.)
Home theater speakers (Can go from a 2.1 to a 7.1 combo)
Connection cables and speaker wires.
Wire Stripper (for speaker wire)
At The Revolver Club online retail store, you can find the best hi-fi audio products for your Home Theater Systems. The inventory is arguably the biggest when it comes to some of the best home theater system in India. Now let’s proceed to how you can set up your very own Home theater system.
How to Set Up Your Home Theater System
Your Theater room/Listening room
This is one of the key factors to get the best out of your home theater sound system. Visually speaking the requirements are quite basic and obvious such as the lights should be dimmable (or you could turn them off altogether) and for daytime viewing the curtains should be opaque enough or thick enough to hide the light coming from outside. This is required so that you can enjoy a dark ambience for best visual clarity just like a movie theatre.
When it comes to the audio part, you need to pay attention to the acoustics of the room. We have already gone in depth about the listening space on another page called HiFi audio systems. There, we have gone over everything right from what matters when it comes to your listening space to why it matters and what you should do.
Remember true surround sound cannot be created just by placing speakers in the position shown in the box of the home theater speakers you buy, it’s a science and it needs a bit of your attention and logic. You need to take into account the reflections and resonances, the distance of the walls, the placement of speakers, etc. Other factors to be taken into consideration are whether the room has a carpet or not, whether the speakers are wall fitted or floor standing, whether the seating is for 3-5 people or more than 3-5 people. Everything matters even if you buy top rated home theater systems and get yourself the best home theater system.
Media Player - Source
A media player is a device you use to access all the media that can not be accessed via your TV. With the era of smart TV’s that are loaded with features like USB ports, Bluetooth, and WiFi, accessing media has become easier than ever before. But, what about movies? A true movie buff is not someone who simply watches a movie. An avid movie watcher will more often than not like to collect the movies in a tangible form like CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray Discs. So let’s have a look at some of the media players you can buy to set up your home theater system.
DVD player -
The most common and widely found media device is a DVD player as this is your bare minimum requirement nowadays if you want to enjoy watching movies on a comprehensive home theater system setup. The advantage of going for a DVD player is that you can always find a lot of pre-owned collections and even the new DVDs are inexpensive compared to a Blu-ray disc or an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc. On the flipside, DVD players cannot play Ultra HD 4k Videos and if you have a 4k TV then buying a DVD player will never make your home sound system the best home theater system. Even though one can store media on a DVD in HD, it can not exceed 30 min. That’s why an average official Movie DVD will have its media at the highest resolution of 520 pixels which is a standard resolution (SD)
Blu-ray Player -
A Blu-Ray player plays Blu-ray discs that look very similar to DVDs but they are not the same. While a DVD has a storage capacity of 4.7 GB, a Blu-ray can store up to 25GB of data. This is why to view content in full HD, one must have a Blu-ray disc and a Blu-ray player. Another advantage of a Blu-ray player is that it can also play DVDs and that too at a better quality compared to a good DVD player.
Ultra HD/4K Blu-ray player-
4K is the new trend, and it's a trend that is here to stay. With inexpensive 4k screens flooding the market, it is getting easier to get high-resolution TVs, as a home theater system is never complete without one. This is what makes an Ultra HD Blu-ray player a necessity. An Ultra HD Blu-ray player can play UHD discs that store content in 4K and can blow your mind if you have got used to watching content via DVDs or even Blu-ray discs. If you are planning to set up the best home theater sound system for yourself, Ultra HD Blu-ray player is the way to go. And yes it does play the usual Blu-ray discs as well.
Media Streamers -
We are now in the era of streaming services. With some of the leading streaming services hitting Indian markets, and the availability of the hi-fi products brought to India by The Revolver Club, it is now possible to buy and set up the best home theater system in India. Media streamers are devices that turn your TV into a smart TV via a USB dongle. The leading products such as Amazon Fire TV stick, Google Chromecast Ultra, Apple TV, and other such devices are an excellent addition to your home theatre system set up.
The leading media streaming services in India are Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Hotstar. Other than these 3 top service providers, there are other smaller players like HOOQ, Voot, Jio Cinema, etc. that have also entered the market with some unique media streaming services.
These service providers have some of the best series and movies of recent times streaming in 4K. This has encouraged millennials to shop quality home theater systems for their entertainment as some of the content provided by these streaming services cannot be watched on the big screen as it is “streaming only” content.
The Revolver Club is delighted to be a part of such a revolution in the world of home entertainment. Many are impressed with some of the leading series on these streaming services like Narcos, Punisher on Netflix and Homecoming on Amazon Prime, also who can forget that in India you can watch Game of Thrones on Hotstar. If you are just starting off, you should shop for the "Enthusiast's package" that we have created for those who have just begun to explore the world of high fidelity audio systems.
AV Receiver or Surround Sound Receiver
The AV receiver is the central and control hub of all the other components. Whether you are assembling a high fidelity audio system or a bluetooth home theater system, the Surround Sound Receiver will always be the heart of the system.
It takes in the input from all the sources(your TV or the media streaming device connected to it, your Blu-ray player, etc.), processes it and amplifies it, then sends it across through various audio channels to the various speakers to get the true surround sound effect.
More often than not an AV Receiver is mistaken for a stereo receiver. Most audiophiles already have a decent high fidelity sound system that has a good stereo receiver. But unfortunately, these two are not the same. Although their functions are the same, i.e., providing hi-fi audio output, their functionalities are vastly different.
The AV receiver is equipped with at least 5 built-in audio amplifiers and a subwoofer preamp output whereas Stereo amplifiers are equipped with only two channel amplifiers.
An AV receiver has built-in audio decoding for several surround sound formats like Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and DS Virtual: X, whereas stereo amplifiers don't have such decoding functionality.
An AV receiver has an HDMI section and some of the best AV Receivers such as Denon AVR X550BT have advanced video processing with 4k Scaling for HDMI sources.
In short, if you are looking for creating the best home theater sound system that also works as a high fidelity audio system for you, then you need to make peace with the fact that these two are two different systems that need separate components. If you want to know more about home stereo systems in India, you should check out our page for more information. And if you are looking for the best home theater system in India, look no further. You can buy them directly from our shop located in Mumbai, India or you can purchase hi-fi products in India from our online retail store.
Home theater Speakers and Subwoofers
Some of the top rated home theatre systems have the best home speakers that compliment the entire system and work in unison with the rest of the components. The speakers are like the lead vocalist of a band. When you listen to the best home theater system, you will most likely appreciate the quality of speakers first.
Home theater speakers are the ones that finally deliver the entire sourcing, processing and decoding done in all the other components. The speakers make the whole surround sound experience a truly immersive one as it encapsulates you with its crisp, lifelike sound.
There are several types of speakers and setups available to buy from and then there is furniture, cables, etc. that also complements these types of speakers. Check out our home theater speakers page for more.
A high-quality home theater system is not enough to deliver the best surround sound experience; it has a lot to do with minor factors such as wires, cables and the placement of speakers. You can read more in-depth about the placement of speakers on our hi-fi audio systems page. The Revolver Club has some of the top rated home theater systems that are so good that they can arguably be called the best home theater system in India.
