The Complete Home Theatre System

Do you remember the first time you went to the theatre? I know I do. I was 7 years old, and my dad had taken me to see “Star Wars”. It was the most amazing experience for me. The huge screen, all the people, and a big bucket of buttery popcorn… For me though, what tied it all together was the sound. It was louder than I had ever watched TV in my life. And I loved it. I remember leaving there, my ears ringing, not realizing that I was actually yelling everything I was trying to say. It was all normal volume to me. But the best part of it was that throughout the movie, the sounds that were supposed to be behind what you were seeing sounded like they were behind us. It was the first taste I had of surround sound.

Over the years I have tried to duplicate the sound, though never to the same magnitude. Unfortunately, the experience was never the same. I always chalked it up to the fact that I was young, and it was my first time going to the movies. That was until I bought my High Definition Television. I hooked it up with my Dolby Digital Surround Sound System, and it was like I was back watching Star Wars for the first time with my dad. I even put on the original Star Wars, made myself some popcorn, and had my son watch it with me. He had the same expression on his face as I did when I was his age. Now I know what my dad felt like after the movie. Its a good feeling being able to share that experience with your son. I’m so glad I bought the HDTV.
