Nov 19th 2012 at 6:45 PM

In-house, home theater setups are becoming the norm in many new and even existing households today. This home-based, media room aims to replicate the film theater experience with the aid of video and audio devices to closely replicate a theater experience. The room usually comprises of the basic components: monitors (TV or projection screen), film software (VCD, DVD, or Blu-ray), audio speakers, video players, and audio-video (AV) receivers. Monitors project the video content. Speakers provide sounds that are strong enough to cover an entire room. Video players play the film software inserted inside them. So should your Home Cinema Receiver expand the movie's sound while diverting signals to TV sets from different sources.

Since 2000, the home theater systems for residential markets have evolved. The rising popularity of surround sound and high-definition (HD) graphics has caused filmmakers to start creating movies that use sophisticated graphic types from HD to 3-dimensional (3D). 3-D films have been present in mainstream cinema since 2003, wherein the trend features watching them on screens using 3-D glasses that use stereoscopy, which creates 3-D visual data in an image. In Panasonic TC-L50EM5 terms of movies played on stored discs, HD digital video discs (DVDs) and Blu-ray discs have been widely used to store high-quality videos and sounds for home video use, although the latter has been preferred due to their higher maximum storage capacity. Surely, you want to have the 3-D movie experience at the comfort of your home. Well, all it takes are HD-TVs, surround sound speakers, and 3D AV receivers. As for the receivers, there are ones that have been designed to modify film graphics and sounds to 3D standards.

Home Cinema Receiver audio manufacturers such as Onkyo, have developed 3 receivers that fit with the Windows 7 operating system and the recent 3D video standards. They are the TX-NR1008, TX-NR808, and TX-NR708. Each of them has 7 high-definition multimedia interface ports, an Ethernet port, a 1080-pixel video upscaling feature through the application of Digital Correlation Deinterlacing Movie technology by Faroudja, USB ports for Apple handheld products iPad, iPod, and iPhone. The receivers can utilize streaming web-based radio services like vTuner, LastFM, and Napster.

Premium companies such as Sony has innovated its 3D home media products, which are now based on the Elevated Standard (ES) AV receivers: the STR-DA5600ES, STRA-DA4600ES, and STR-DA3600ES. The ES receivers work well with Sony's BRAVIA HDTV to provide the best 3D experience for a home cinema receiver. The Sony ES AV receivers have custom controls for Internet Protocol (IP) to connect to home automation systems like Crestron, Control4, and Savant. To up the bar even more, receivers can be controlled using electronics such as an iPhone and iPod Touch as remote devices.

There are other companies you can search for 3D AV receivers like MidRange, Digital Direct, Denon and Yamaha. What matters most is if you choose the suitable receiver, you shall have the greatest home-based 3D experience you'll never forget!
