best home theater under 20000

Which is the best home theater under 20000?

In order to get the true surround sound experience without the need to leave the house, you need a 5.1 home theater setup. For those of us still not quite clear on the jargon, a 5.1 setup comprises of six channel surround sound audio systems. It usually comprises of one central speaker, two front speakers, two side/back speakers and a sub-woofer unit (the .1 in the name refers to this supposedly). These units also support Dolby Digital.

Another question we do get asked is whether a home theater system allows playing music off a pen drive/phone/iPod like regular speakers? Well, yes and they do a better job at it. Also, a 500W speaker won’t consume 500W of electricity. Lastly, it is advisable to consider RMS output instead of PMPO to get a more accurate picture of the audio levels that can be expected. Read this buyer’s guide on home theater systems for a better understanding of some of these terms.

We’ve compiled the list of the best 5.1 home theater systems available in India for this month. Some of these even come with a DVD player (we wish it was Blu-ray). It is worthy to note that in order to receive the 5.1 signal from your television, your TV needs to support HDMI ARC (usually missing from non-smart TVs) or an digital optical port. Many of these HTS (home theater systems) only support 5.1 on the DVD player and might not support it through your TV (like your TV channels). These would likely be the ones that do not have a digital optical port or HDMI ARC support.

So here are the best 5.1 home theater systems under Rs 20,000 in India.
