frequently asked questions
Today’s high-definition home theaters run on digital audio and video, and HDMI™ is the connection of choice. That’s because HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) delivers crystal-clear digital video and audio via a single cable, dramatically simplifying cabling and helping A/V fans enjoy the best possible home theater experience.
HDMI’s pure-digital interface is the best way to connect high-resolution components — Blu-ray players, the PlayStation® 3 and Xbox 360™ game consoles, and HD-capable satellite and cable TV set-top boxes — to HDMI-equipped high-definition TVs and home theater receivers.
Looking ahead, HDMI could be the only HD-capable connection. After December 31, 2010, equipment manufacturers will not be allowed to introduce new models with component video outputs capable of higher than standard-definition (480i) resolution. And as of January 1, 2011, disc makers will have the option of inserting a “digital flag” into a Blu-ray disc that will limit component video resolution to 480i. So if you like high-definition pictures — and who doesn’t? — you’ll definitely want HDMI connections on your gear.
The ability to send high-definition video and multichannel audio over a single cable is unique to HDMI, but this interface offers other big advantages:
- Ability to carry 3D video: HDMI is the only connection that can carry 3D video signals from components like a Blu-ray 3D™ player to your 3D TV.
- More than just audio and video: A standard HDMI connector has 19 pins, which carry not only audio and video data, but also 2-way control and identification information, and even low-voltage power. The most recent HDMI cables, labeled “1.4”, can also provide an Internet connection between compatible devices.
If you’re using in-wall or in-ceiling speakers for dedicated music listening or for home theater, a powered subwoofer is a must. It fills out the low frequencies, giving you warmer, more realistic sound. Many subwoofers are small enough to tuck behind a couch or table. We also offer subs that install in your wall, floor or ceiling for an elegant, space-saving solution.
Two of the most important things to think about when shopping for in-wall or in-ceiling speakers are how you’re going to use them and where you’d like to install them. For example, you’d probably buy a different type and number of speakers for surround sound in your home theater than you would for background music in the kitchen. Before you start looking at specific speaker models and features, you’ll need to decide how and where you’ll use them.
We do not recommend purchasing these products online due to the fact that many manufacturers will not offer a warranty unless their products are sold by an authorized dealer. This also protects you from buying outdated, faulty, refurbished equipment.
