Piecing together a home theatre can be a rewarding experience. Sitting back to watch your favourite movie in glorious 5.1 or 7.1 surround in the comfort of your home for the first time can be well worth the time and effort spent setting it up. That's not to say it doesn't take some work. Careful planning and research is needed to make sure you purchase the right components. For those who don't want the hassle, a home theatre in a box may be the solution.

 

LG is certainly known for its televisions and smartphones, but the Korea-based company has made huge strides in the home theater department over the past few years.
