Building your own home theater system sounds a lot more intimidating than it is. Once you choose a brand, such as Onkyo, and purchase the right equipment and wiring, you are set to have an experience like no other. First you will need to find an Onkyo receiver that appeals to you. A DVD player, gaming system, and Blu-ray player will all need to have open connections in order to operate with your system, so make sure you choose a receiver that has enough connections available. Speakers are the next important item. Choose enough speakers to cover the front, sides, and rear of your viewing area, and ensure that you have enough stereo cable to place the speakers in the appropriate spot so that you can attain that perfect surround-sound experience. Do not forget the Onkyo remote; nobody wants to move from that comfy spot on the couch, especially after spending so much time and energy installing such a fantastic new audio system. With the access to so many sellers on eBay who specialize in home theater equipment, you can find just the Onkyo pieces you need to create a true theater experience in your home.
