With modern technology, you can recreate the experience of watching a movie in a theater right in the comfort of your home with a home theater system. However, this wasn’t always the case. People have been striving to perfect home theater systems since the 1950s, when movie studios began using multi-channel sound for movie soundtracks. For decades, what followed was a series of missteps and solutions that were effective, but too expensive for most users. It took until the 1980s and the creation of four-channel Dolby Surround systems for the home theater experience to really match the sound heard in theaters.
