Chapter 4. Home Theater Video Components

Chances are when you hear the term “home theater,” the first image you picture is a wall-sized television screen. Well, you don’t need a huge television to create a home theater.

Today, DVD players are becoming a standard in home theater (yes, even in budget systems).
