Home Entertainment

You have plenty of choices when it comes to selecting a surround sound system, yet many speakers and receivers fall short in terms of power output and performance. THX believes that having the right components is just half of the equation. The other half is how the components are placed and calibrated, and how room size and acoustics affect performance.

To help match the best speakers and receivers for your listening needs, THX has established certification categories to ensure your home theater system can deliver crisp, clear THX Reference Level sound in the room size you desire.
