Having a great set of speakers or soundbar with a subwoofer doesn't really make for a home theatre system. To truly get that theatre vibe at your house, you need to get a projector so that you can watch your favourite TV show or movies on an actual big screen. To get great picture quality, what you can do is get a 1080p (HD) projector so that you get bright, vivid and sharp pictures. Do look for projectors that have HDMI ports in them so that you can connect your speaker system, game consoles and more. Here are four 1080p projectors that should be an ideal fit for your home theatre system.
