Look after your home entertainment system
With a sophisticated home cinema system, you can roll out the red carpet and pull out the popcorn at home. Why traipse to an overpriced cinema and spend an uncomfortable two hours in sticky seats, when you have a complete surround-sound cinema system in the luxury of your own home?
If your personal TV system brings Hollywood into your living room, you may want to consider the level of home insurance you have to cover it. As TVs become more complex and impressive, the equipment becomes a greater risk for theft or damage.
The most recent development in home cinema technology is televisions with 3D capacity. While we previously only donned 3D glasses in the darkness of a cinema, now you can enjoy 3D in your own home. You can choose between 3D Active (using liquid crystal, active shutter 3D glasses to give the impression of a full 3D image) or 3D Passive (using polarized glasses, which stimulate 3D images in each eye) to give your whole family a life-like television experience. However, when the 3D glasses start at around £100, and you then add the necessary sync transmitter and Blu-Ray player into the equation, you'll see how the value of your entertainment system increases quite significantly.
I'd recommend watching our home cinema video for some basic advice, or if you're feeling slightly overwhelmed by the choice of technology on offer take at a look at our buying guide for some jargon explained.
