Cinema Room - The SURROUND SOUND
Surround Sound was designed to give the actual 360 degree field of hearing that you experience in real life to be imitated through the material that you are viewing in your TV viewing or movie watching experience. Movies and HD Television recording studios literally use 5+ microphones to record the actual sounds on the recording set coming from different directions. These 5 x recordings are known 'channels' which are processed into the one audio signal that contains 5 x seperate bits of information. All channels are 100% completely independant from one another and are intended to be sent to a 5 channel amplifier e.g to then send these 5x bits of information to a set of 5x speakers all positioned according to speaker positioning which is known as 'surround sound'. 5.0 and 5.1 refer to the number of channels in a surround sound system with the '.1' being a subwoofer speaker for bass (low frequency effects).
Currently 5.1 channel sources (Free to Air Television programs e.g) are becoming more and more popular. DVD movies have had 5.1 for ten plus years. 7.1 and 7.2 channel signals are now found on Bluray DVD and this is just the starting point.
What are these surround sound 'channels'?

SCREEN, PICTURE SIZE, PICTURE QUALITY
All packs contain components that deliver FULL HD 1080p. As of early 2013 this is the latest technology in Australia. But of course as technology goes 4K (a resolution 4 x better than Full HD) 4 K will be the latest technology by when? Mid 2013? Late 2013? We don't know. It's available but but it is quite new and excessive. This won't be the case if you're reading this in 12 months time.
Full HD is the standard of Bluray DVD movies. Full HD is the same as 1080p or one thousand and eighty (1080) pixels (dots per square inch) progressively (p) scanned across your TV or through your projector. 1080p or a.k.a Full HD refers to the resolution of the picture or how many pixels (dots per square inch) you see in the picture; how much detailed information there is per square inch.
Bluray is noticeably better quality than standard HD or standard DVD. We consider the difference to be easily noticed just as comparing SD (standard definition) TV channels to HD (high definition TV programs).
It makes sense to get the latest technology at the time of purchasing your home cinema to future proof your gear for as long as possible. Of course within 2 months time there is going to be something better available (there always is). This is true for everybody, so the least you can do is the get the latest at the time of purchase to ensure it's still quite impressive or at least functional 5-10 years down the track.
