Watching movies and videos has a lot of advantages over watching a movie in the cinema. At home you are likely to feel more relaxed because it is your own familiar environment. You also have the choice of relaxing however you want at home with your very own choice of foods. But to be able to enjoy a movie at home properly, you need the proper equipment and tools of the trade.
The TV is without a doubt the most essential part of a home movie setup, no point having everything else if there’s no awesome TV to show off all the great visuals. High-Definition LED TVs used to be very expensive, especially for the larger ones, but with the advancements in technology, these TVs are becoming more and more affordable; a great 50-inch HD LED T V can be bought with just under RM2000. Make sure when you’re buying a TV it is with Full HD resolution (1080p) at the very least; so that your movies will appear crisp and clear.
DVD and Blu-Ray Players Singapore
DVD players and Blu-Ray players are designed specifically to play movies and other forms of media through DVD discs and also Blu-Ray discs. Blu-Ray discs are much newer than DVD, and they have larger storage compared to DVD discs; this means that you can enjoy higher quality visuals. DVD players are compatible with the older CD discs, so you won’t have to let your old CDs go to waste. Most Blu-Ray players are also reverse compatible with DVD and CD discs – meaning you will only need a single player to play a variety of media.
