If you’re watching movies, playing video games, or enjoying your favourite TV shows and only using the speakers built into your television, you’re missing out.

The “best” speakers will vary depending on your individual needs. There are many of things to consider: the size of your living room, the orientation of your home theatre system, and the amount you can afford to spend. Recommendations from others can definitely help, but you still need to do your research. It also pays to shop around for speakers, as pricing varies widely (remember to factor in shipping if you’re buying from overseas, a major consideration with larger speaker sets).
