When you watch a movie, you want to be totally immersed in what’s going on. It doesn’t matter if it’s a comedy, action-adventure, thriller, or some other genre, the experience can either amplify or ruin your enjoyment of the show. While having a pristine picture to look at is a crucial part in optimizing your home theater set up, having high-resolution audio is just as important.
To get the best movie-watching experience possible, you need home media room equipment that makes you feel like you’re actually there in the scene. You could spend an arm and a leg to get a state-of-the-art audio system, but thankfully, you don’t have to break the bank to get the stereo system of your dreams. To help you create the ultimate theater experience for your home, we’ve compiled a list of recommendations that are perfect for any budget.
Before we begin, here are a few things you need to know:
- This blog is specifically about audio systems. We won’t be going into TVs, projectors, or other types of video equipment.
- There are two types of home theaters:
- Prepackaged: Everything you need (stereos and the receiver) is included in the package.
- Separate: Individual components are purchased separately, allowing for customization.
If you’re in the market for new home theater products, you may want to take a look at the Sonos Arc. As Sonos’s flagship all-in-one soundbar, it offers impressive sound quality in a minimalist design.

Klipsch is one of the most trusted brands in home audio and their Reference speakers continue to deliver some of the best audio experiences you can get.

Should you get a soundbar or go with a true surround sound experience? Both options offer quality sound and have their own unique benefits, so it can be difficult to choose one over the other. JBL makes this choice easy, however, with their wireless JBL BAR 5.1.
This hybrid system has two surround sound speakers that detach from both ends of the soundbar. These speakers are battery-powered, can be placed anywhere in the room, and can be recharged by reattaching them to the soundbar. As far as audio quality goes, the powerful subwoofer can really accentuate those movie moments with heavy bass.

The speakers offer plenty of detail so you won’t miss a beat, while the subwoofer provides deep bass. If you go with this option, know that the system requires a receiver that you can purchase separately.
