Most of us love movies and music. However, it is not always possible to recreate the atmosphere you get in a theatre or a music concert. But that doesn’t mean it is impossible. Going to the theatre for a movie is such a thing-of-the-past. Why bother buying expensive theatre tickets, stand in queues and have our ears blasted, just to watch a movie, when we can simply Netflix it? Within your own home, it is possible to get the theatre vibe without the unwanted stuff. As far as the sound is concerned, the solution is a home theatre system!

A home-theatre system normally consists of five to seven audio channels plus a subwoofer channel (5.1 or 7.1), which recreates the audio experience of a theatre. Pick the right TV, and you will never miss another movie or concert ever again! With the recent craze in buying such systems, we decided to list our top 8 picks for the best music systems in the country. And remember, you need a good home theatre system to get the rights to hosting a house party. So, without further ado, here we go!

Compact and clear, this one is for the people who are not looking to invest a lot on a home theatre system but want one.
