1. Pioneer 5.1 Home Theater System
Pioneer has long been a leader in the home audio space and this set comes with a 5.1-channel AV receiver, five compact speakers and a subwoofer. Connect your TV and Blu-ray or DVD player and enjoy loud, dynamic, high-powered sound throughout your room.
The speakers get you 150 watts each, while the small subwoofer gets you 100 watts of bass. The system’s built-in Bluetooth capabilities let you pair your devices for easy streaming, while a USB input lets you connect via a memory stick or flash drive as well.
The HTP-074 supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound, which is standard for most high-definition Blu-ray discs. It also allows for 4K/Ultra HD pass through, letting you see more details and more vivid colors than if you just plugged your Blu-ray player into your standard TV.
PROS: The system’s two energy-saving “ECO Modes” will drop levels down to a more moderate (but still clear) sound quality, and shut off functions when they’re not being used.
CONS: The subwoofer isn’t as loud or powerful as other options on this list.
