• Home-Theater-in-a-Box (HTIB) Systems

  • All-in-one setups put a full-featured home theater within easy reach, and Dolby technologies in these systems ensure high-quality audio performance and extensive compatibility.

  • HTIB: A One-Box Solution for Surround Sound

    With so much entertainment now available in surround sound—not just movies on disc but TV shows, streaming content, and live sporting events—a 5.1- or even 7.1-channel home theater makes a world of sense. But the cost and product know-how required to assemble a home theater piece by piece can be intimidating. This is why component manufacturers offer a simplified solution: the home theater in a box (HTIB).

    An HTIB system usually includes the following audio essentials:

    • Subwoofer
    • Five or more speakers
    • A/V receiver
    • Cables
    • Blu-ray™ or DVD player (optional)

    Connect these to your TV, and you have a complete home theater for enjoying surround sound.

    Enhance the Experience with Dolby

    With an HTIB, you know that the individual components will work together seamlessly. You also save on the bottom line, since these systems tend to be priced lower than the combined cost of separate components. Features like wireless speakers—essential if you want the flexibility to position speakers anywhere in a room—and built-in Wi-Fi® are common in HTIB systems, too.

    Another important feature: Dolby® technologies. The following Dolby technologies enhance the capabilities built into an HTIB and ensure that you receive a clear, vivid audio performance from any type of programming. 

    • Dolby DigitalThe established standard for digital television and DVD surround sound 
    • Dolby Digital PlusThe next-generation audio technology selected by leading online services for premium content 
    • Dolby TrueHDLossless audio for top-tier movies on Blu-ray Disc™ 
    • Dolby Pro Logic IITransforms stereo (two-channel) audio into surround sound 
    • Dolby Pro Logic IIxExpands stereo or 5.1-channel audio into 6.1- or 7.1-channel surround sound 


  • Home-Theater-in-a-Box Systems with Dolby Technologies

    The best HTIB systems include a suite of Dolby technologies to make sure you hear the most realistic surround sound possible from your equipment. Look for systems from these manufacturers when shopping for your home theater in a box.
