Quality of home theater speaker

The right quality and type of speaker can make or break our home theater speaker system as 50% of its impact is sound. If we want the perfect home theater system, it has to go hand-in-hand with an ultimate home listening experience that surpasses all others. The speaker is an important choice for those who are creating the ultimate in entertainment in their home. If the installation of the home theater system is to be installed in the home, some time may need to be carefully considered before purchasing a speaker system that will work fully, at least to the level that you need it to. There are several name brands on the market. Is one of these speaker brands better than another one? It is always about preferences and what is affordable to the budget. That is because for each person, there will be a different need, a different product and a different price range. Luckily, there are plenty of speaker options to select from on the home theater level.

With growth in the overall PC market chugging along in the high single digits, Intel and AMD are keen to find new uses for their chips and reckon the growing amount of digital photos, music and video in homes will provide fertile ground.

AMD said it would work with consumer electronics companies and PC makers to offer a souped-up home theater system powered by its Athlon 64 chips. The device would enable surround sound, video recording, Internet and computing functions.

"This is one set top box-looking device that can act as a set top box, a DVR (digital video recorder), home theater or stereo, and can also play your PC content," said Aaron Feen, director of AMD's consumer marketing.

AMD also plans to offer a home media server that could store and stream music and video throughout a home.

"Over time, it gets consumers doing more sophisticated things, which ultimately demand more processing power ... and benefits us in turn," Feen told Reuters in an interview.

Last year, AMD continued to grab market share from Intel, which responded by refreshing its entire product line and slashing prices on older chips.
