A Hi-Fi system refers to an assembly of audio players, video players digital surround speakers and television sets. High Fidelity has been around for many decades but it is used to refer to any advanced audio or video equipment. Home theater systems represent the latest technological advancement in this field. However, it is possible for individuals to build their own equipment by selecting individual components and assembling them. Every enthusiast must remember to include some components that could heighten his or her experience.

1. The play-back device
2. A set of amplifiers and
The play-back device is the CD player, the DVD player. Many of the systems have a player that can adapt to any sound format. The amplifiers enhance the sounds in the recordings that give listeners the high fidelity experience. Every image and sound in the original recording is converted into powerful signals which are then fed into the loud-speakers. These loud-speakers form another integral part of the system. They are equipped with a "tweeter" that can pick up sounds of a very high pitch, the mid-range speaker that can receive sounds within the range of human hearing and the bass speaker that is tuned in to receive sounds of a low range. Many hi-fi systems have sub-woofers which can pick bass sounds and reproduce them realistically. This is how a theatrical experience is created.
There are various kinds available in the market. They are the Mini, the Midi Hi-Fi systems and the Micro Hi-Fi systems. The Micro Hi-Fi systems are very compact and are available in single piece.
Power output is the next consideration. This is measured in terms of a unit called "watt" It is important to bear this point when you connect speakers to the system. The power output of the system and the speakers must be compatible.
