No matter how big your screen is, it will only bring you half the experience. Home theatre systems exist for tons of reasons. They deliver high-quality audio and further appreciate tunes, helping to bring cinematic actions truer to life. Without sounds, watching horror movies can never give you jumpscares, and dramas can never make you cry without its heart-touching music.

Without further ado, let us list the best ones for your picking.

This theatre system has all the wires ready for you with an innovatively designed amplifier, so it's not difficult to install. It uses Dolby TrueHD technology for the deliverance of accurate sounds when watching movies.

Users should take note of its power consumption. Every speaker it has consumes quite a lot of wattage, not to mention the amplifier itself. So if you want this theatre system, be ready to be able to maintain it.

You get to have all of the above at a super affordable price. However, setting it up can be quite technical, and the sound isn't that amazing when compared to other high-end multi-speaker theatre systems.

Nonetheless, it's really affordable and an improvement from the basics, being able to provide overall decent quality to your entertainment needs while giving you a karaoke experience. If you want a complete package, and you're okay with taking an hour or two to set it up, this classic home theatre system is for you.

With its Dolby Atmos technology and high-tech speaker setup, you can experience sound atmospherically 360 degrees.

It also doesn't require any technical skills to install, as it doesn't have rear speakers, a subwoofer, or an external amplifier. It's a one-man army and provides you with the best 3D surround sound experience. The only concern is that it's a pricey item to have.

8. Paradigm Soundtrack 2 System

Best home theater system with wireless speakers
Price from SGD1,699.00
Harvey Norman Singapore SGD1,699.00

Simplicity and sophistication in one body is a rare sight, but it exists in the Paradigm Soundtrack 2 System. This product is a simple pair of a lengthy 18-inch bar speaker and a minimalistic and portable subwoofer.

At a glance, you will find it very straightforward. However, it has surround sound capabilities, which is surprising for a single front speaker. You can place it just below any LED TV, and it will complement it wonderfully.
