Best 5 Blu-ray/DVD-ready Systems For 2013

Updated on November 5, 2013

A Blu-ray/DVD-ready system is a package that has included all the necessary elements so that you can install a Home Theater in your home if you already have a Blu-ray or DVD player and a TV.

Thanks to the HDMI connectivity, the connection between your additional Audio/Video components is greatly facilitated. From speakers to cables, everything is in the package.

Typically in a Home Theater System the speakers are arranged in the following manner: two speakers in front of the viewer, two speakers behind the viewer and a subwoofer.

Optionally, the rear speakers can be wireless, to avoid running wires to them, although they will need a wall power supply to feed the receiver.

The manufacturers strive to make the designs of the speakers more and more compact and with better output power.

Because the package is designed specifically so that the average user can install it without any major difficulties, professional help is not required.
