Best 5.1 Home Theater System under Rs 10,000 in India (2018)

Looking for the best home theater setup under Rs 10,000?

We’ve compiled the list of the best 5.1 home theater systems available in India for this month under Rs 10,000. While you might not get all the features in this budget, you should be able to experience 5.1 music on pen drive or memory cards. Bluetooth doesn’t support 5.1 and the best you can get playing music on Bluetooth is 2.1 (all five speakers might play the audio, but the experience isn’t similar to true 5.1)

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.

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 a digital optical port. Since none of these models (except one) come with an HDMI ARC or an optical port, you’ll be restricted to the 5.1 experience on just USB sticks and memory cards.

If you don’t want to make such compromises, we recommend checking the list of the best 5.1 home theater systems under Rs 20,000.

So, here are the best 5.1 home theater systems under Rs 10,000 in India.
