However it has made huge advances and improvements in the last couple of years.

Buying a Blu Ray Player Versus DVD Player
Generally in most ways, Blu-ray is relatively much like DVD. The players look pretty much the same, the Blu Ray discs look like the DVD variety, but Blu Ray is quite different when it comes to Blu Ray versus DVD players in three important ways.

Image quality

The Blu Ray Set Up

In the event that all you need from Blu Ray is a basic picture and sound, then you can just use it on a regular television using standard AV input connectors, the yellow, red, and white plugs. This is okay if you are planning to build your home theater set up and get pieces one by one as you go.

But the only purpose of paying the extra bucks to get a Blu Ray player is to enjoy that ultra high def, superior movie experience, and to get that the Blu Ray player alone is not enough, you will need to buy the entire set up for a home theater in order to get the full high def experience and this Blu Ray buying guide recommends that or it's best to not even spend the money on the Blu Ray player and just stick with the DVD player.

There was an error connecting to the Amazon web service, or no results were found for your query.

HDTV
In order to get the full high definition video affect, you need the HDTV to connect your Blu Ray player to. While the improvements in picture quality are visible with practically any size HDTV, the difference really shines with screens 40" and up, so, if you're going to go all out when buying a blu ray player and HDTV then get the biggest screen you can. Shop cheap HDTV's.

AV receiver
Blu Ray additionally brings a super high-resolution audio. To listen to the new high-resolution soundtracks at their maximum fidelity you will want an AV receiver, or a complete home theater system, that comes with AV receiver and surround speakers, and some that even come with the Blu Ray player built in.

Surround Sound speakers
It's really not possible to get the full Blu-ray experience without also installing a surround sound speaker system.

Again, you can purchase these items separately, like the AV Receivers and Surround Speakers, or purchase a complete Home Theater System (learn more below).

HDMI cables
The recommended and best way to connect the Blu Ray to the HDTV to the AV Receiver is with an HDMI cable that is capable of carrying both 1080p HD video and high-resolution audio. The most essential issue to keep in mind with HDMI cables is never pay more for HDMI cables, in this area, brand names and prices do not matter, using a $10 standard 6-foot HDMI cable is perfect and there is no difference in quality. If you have an older player that does not support HDMI, each and every Blu Ray player comes with a component video output, that can output Blu Ray discs at 1080i.

Home Theater Options

Systems with a player
A lot of home theater systems come with a progressive-scan DVD player or a Blu Ray player, and some newer models even come with a 3D-capable Blu-ray player. The player could possibly be built into the receiver or be a separate unit. Systems that combine the disc player along with the receiver in one box are likely to offer a little bit less functionality as well as a lesser number of connections as compared to the ones that possess two separate components. Integrated units are fairly simpler to set up, but they might not permit people to connect video devices other than a TV to the receiver.

Systems without a player
There are also home-theater systems that do not  come with a disc player. This provides people the option of using a player they have bought previously or buying a separate one in a brand they want.  This system allows for more flexibility in the set up, but also requires more connection requirements. Additionally, since the receiver and player have their own controls, they tend to be easier to use than an integrated device.
