Cables you need to install your home theatre available at PrimeCables.ca

Home theatre installation can involve climbing a pretty steep learning curve, so we here at PrimeCables.ca would like to take the time to clarify the various types of A/V cables you might be considering when preparing to DIY and create your very first home theatre setup.

If you’re a simple person looking for the simple answer: HDMI.

We recommend HDMI cables because they transmit audio and video signals flawlessly and in high definition across a multitude of devices. Whether you’re intending on inserting a sound system, game console, cable box, multimedia center, or desktop into your home theatre, HDMI delivers uncompressed audio via 8 channels, providing full 7.1 surround sound compatibility that comes standard with Blu-Ray players, as well as high def video, including 3D and 4K formats.

We have a huge selection of HDMI cables and adapters in our catalogue, although our number one top selling HDMI cable is the PrimeCables® Licensed HDMI® 2.0 Cable (with Zinc-Alloy), regularly priced $7.99, on sale now until the end of October for just $5.99. Featuring gold-plated connectors, 4K and 3D video support, up to 32 audio channel output, and built-in HDMI Ethernet capability, this is one of the best HDMI cables available on the Canadian market right now.

You might have special hardware or A/V demands in your home theatre, and that’s fine. Here’s everything you need to know:

There’s Optical / Toslink, which works via transmission by light pulses, once more prevalent than it is today. Although less commonplace now because of the predominance of cheaper HDMI cables, Toslink provides minimal signal degradation. But, even though it delivers optimal sound quality, it is limited to providing only up to 5.1 surround sound. Our recommended Toslink cable is the PrimeCables® 5.0mm Optical Toslink Cable, available in a variety of lengths starting at just $1.99 each.

There’s also Digital Coax, which delivers 5.1 surround sound audio, and remains in common use. Usually, its purpose is to connect your subwoofer to your audio receiver, providing superior sound quality much like optical / Toslink.

Last, but not least, is RCA cables, probably something your mom or dad used back in the day. These analog cords are reliable and capable of delivering surround sound with multiple connections. Because of their design purpose to provide analog sound, they can degrade sound quality in digital recording playback. They work great for heirloom hardware and old school setups, though!

Our recommended RCA cable is the Monoprice® Premium RCA M/M 22AWG Cable, sold two per package in a variety of lengths starting as low as $4.29 for the pair. This high-quality RG59U, 75ohm cable gives you flawless audio playback for all your old vinyl records.

The Best Wireless TV Headphones for your Home Theater

One of the best things about buying a home theater system is the amazing bass-rupturing sound that can be achieved. Sometimes though, the subsequent worst thing about a home theater system is how loud and obnoxious said sound can be to other members of the household.

How to Set Up a Video Projector for Home Theater Viewing

Big screen entertainment is just a single ‘buy’ away with a video projector for home theater viewing available from PrimeCables.

 

If you’ve decided to make the move from a high definition flat-screen to a video projector, congratulations! There’s a lot of reason to make the switch, as more Canadians have been in recent years. For newbies, setting up a video projector however is not always the most straightforward process.

 

The first step is in deciding where you’re going to place your projector screen. Before you even purchase a projector, this comes first. After you’ve purchased both your projector and its accompanying projector screen, set up the screen first.

 

From there, you can unbox the projector and determine where you want to place it in relation. Most projectors can project towards the screen from the ceiling or from a table-type mount. To project from the ceiling or wall, you’ll require a projector mount. Ensure that when placement is complete, placement is not upside down. Before making any cuts into your ceiling to install a ceiling mount, determine the required distance you need between the projector to screen. This is different for everyone. Note that the distance from the screen is the same as it would be on the floor so there’s no need to hold it up high for minutes on end.

 

After you’ve installed your projector mount and your projector is ready to go up, connect all the sources you’ll be using. This might include game consoles, media streaming devices, smart TV boxes, cable boxes, laptop computers, home theater video outputs, and more. To this point, when buying a projector, you may want to consider the amount of inputs you have. You may require additional cables, adapters, or inputs. Thankfully, there’s plenty of home theater adapters available in the PrimeCables catalogue. You may benefit from picking up a few alongside your other projector accessories.

 

Now, follow your instructions to get the video projector turned on and to have the video image placed directly on screen. From there, you should be able to optimize picture qualify, adjusting colors, brightness, contrast, and more. You may have to toy with these settings a bit.

 

Depending on your experience with projectors and the size of the room, it may take as little as twenty minutes to an entire afternoon to set up a video projector for home theater viewing. Consider all moving components – video, speakers, any non-traditional accessories included in your home theater system, etc. Ensure everything’s connected and functioning.

How to Choose a Home Theater Projector

Projectors are an amazing home theater product, achieving something no flat-screen can. Though we can spend $1,000s on a big screen, with a projector, you can save $1,000s and get equal-quality performance. Imagine seeing TV shows, movies, sports, and video games on the most massive screen your home can handle.

 

A home theater projector has many variables that can influence your visual experience. There’s buying a projector mount to set up your projector in the most optimum location for video. Then, there’s also the projector screen you select. A maximized home theater experience with a projector can’t really be achieved without those two elements included.

 

Projector screens are where we start in choosing a home theater projector. You need to know where you’re going to place your projector screen and how you’re going to install it. It can be free-standing, mounted to the wall, or retractable. Though some homeowners skip buying a projector screen and just send the video to a white wall, this doesn’t quite capture the same quality. A projector screen will keep things looking smoother and more consistent!

 

Now, with regards to how to choose a home theater projector, there’s a lot of things to weigh. You may require a specific video resolution, specific inputs, and/or may be working with existing elements that need to be accommodated for. It’s important to remember that projectors do not produce audio and thus, you will require an A/V receiver to run audio. This can add up to a lot of extra cables and adapters that need to be accommodate for in the design. Be sure to consider this prior to buying a projector.

 

Why so many Canadians have made the switch to home theater projectors is because of the amount of picture quality they carry. If your budget is tight, PrimeCables has a projector with amazing picture quality under-$100 with smooth, consistent imaging. See more value in a projector than some of Canada’s biggest and best flat-panel TVs. Cost per inch of screen is inexpensive with a projector compared to flat-panels. Also, you’ll get no reflection or glare from windows.

 

Home theater and entertainment setups are all about customizing according to your preference. Tailor your projector experience to your room and don’t forget about your screen. If you want to get the best picture quality, a projector screen is a necessity.

How to Build a Home Theater System – Do it Right with these 10 Crucial Mistakes to Avoid!

Home theater systems do not need to be huge, lavish theaters. If you want to go that way, sure, do it up! Most Canadian households however are working with far less. If you’re building your first home theater and media room, here are ten mistakes to avoid.

 

Ergonomic screen positions

 

Human beings are not built to look up indefinitely. If you use a TV wall mount to install your TV against the wall, do not position it too high up. Position so that the center of one’s gaze falls between the top quarter to the top edge of your flat-screen.

 

Ensure seating is neither close nor far

 

Home theater seating should be properly set up in proximity to the flat-screen. In many cases, Canadian households set up seating too close. This will decrease image quality. If you sit too far away, it can make details of the screen difficult to identify. Experiment a little.

 

Lighting ruining the image quality

 

Place your television in an optimized location away from where there will be glare. Consider using a TV wall mount with a slight tilt to help combat any lighting issues. If direct sunlight is falling on the screen while you’re watching or if your flat-screen is opposite a large window, that’s a mistake.

 

People walking in front of the TV

 

When designing your home theater system, ensure you are considering where household members will be walking. If there’s only one way out of the room and your TV is positioned behind it, you’ll have people walking by constantly throughout a program. Consider breaking up your seating.

 

Tucking away speakers in a cabinet

 

If your speakers are so ugly you need to hide them, it’s time to switch them out for something new. Furthermore, when you hide your speakers in furniture, it serves to muffle and muddy the sound. No one wants that, especially on a home theater speaker setup they may have paid hundreds for.

 

Don’t buy surround sound if it’s a small space

 

If you don’t have a good sized room for surround sound, buying surround sound speakers will be a complete waste. Consider a Bluetooth soundbar in its place or something smaller. Subsequently, you may struggle with a lot of wires if you’ve got too many speakers in a tiny location.

 

Buying under-budget

 

Although we know Canadians love saving money, if you’re buying cheap, broken equipment, you’re never going to have a home theater system you’re proud of. As important as it is to stick to a budget, ensure what you’re buying is good quality and that you’re not completely cheap-ing out.

 

Buying over-budget

 

It’s arguably more easy to overspend than it is to underspend. Spending too much money can also be a regret. When it comes to high quality home theater accessories, chances are by spending a little less, you can find something of equal or sometimes better quality.

 

Persuaded by a good salesperson

 

Trust your judgement and do your research before committing to a purchasing choice. We all have different preferences when it comes to building out a home theater system. Don’t let someone take you off track by selling you a larger flat-screen than you need or a speaker system you don’t really need.

 

Forgetting to use a surge protector

 

Always use a surge protector to ensure your electronics are adequately protected. If you’ve got expensive home theater equipment – think TV, A/V receiver subwoofer, media streaming device, game console, etc. – a surge protector is an absolute must.
