Staying at home instead of heading out to the cinema?

Although cinemas are opened in Phase 2, with community cases still lurking and the lack of new blockbusters, many are not heading out to the cinema. The next best alternative is to create your own home cinema at home.

In the past, setting up a home cinema can cost upwards of five figures. Today, you could set up your own system at under $300. You just need a blank wall, a comfortable sofa or beanbags and enjoy the cinematic experience in your own home. We source the world to bring you 5 best units you can get for a steal.
