Updated on February 17, 2022

Setting up a streaming room setup can be daunting for first-timers. This comprehensive guide will equip you with all the knowledge you need to get your streaming room up and running in no time! 

In this article, we will cover everything from choosing the right equipment to streaming software and beyond.

Streaming device

Choosing the right streaming device is essential for any streaming room setup. The most popular streaming devices on the market are the Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire Stick. All three of these devices offer a wide range of streaming channels and apps.

If you’re looking for a streaming device that offers more flexibility, then the Roku streaming device might be your best bet. 

The Roku streaming stick can be connected to any TV via HDMI port and will allow you access streaming channels like Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime Video, HBO GO/NOW, Sling TV (and much more).

Television

The next essential piece of equipment for any streaming room is a television. When choosing a TV for your streaming setup, it’s important to consider the size and resolution of the screen. A good rule of thumb is to choose a TV that has a minimum resolution of 1080p.

If you’re looking for a higher resolution, then you might want to consider a streaming box that can stream in UHD or Ultra HD (3840 x 1600).

If you’re looking for more flexibility and would like to use your streaming device with multiple TVs, then it might be worth investing in a streaming media player.

Receiver or soundbarr

Another piece of streaming equipment you might want to consider is a soundbar or receiver. A good soundbar will give you the best possible audio quality for your streaming setup. 

You can choose from either an analog or digital connection, depending on what streaming device you have and how many speakers it has built-in.

If you have a streaming device that doesn’t have any built-in speakers, then you might want to consider investing in a receiver. A receiver will give you the ability to connect additional speakers and create a surround sound setup for your streaming.

Subwoofer 

A good subwoofer is essential for any streaming room setup. A quality subwoofer will give you deep, rich bass that will make your streaming experience more immersive.

When choosing a subwoofer, it’s important to consider the size of the room and how much space you have available. If you have a small room, then you might want to consider a compact subwoofer. 

On the other hand, if you have a larger room, then you might want to consider investing in a bigger subwoofer.

Blu-ray player

A Blu-ray player is a great addition to any streaming room. A Blu-ray player will allow you to watch your favorite movies and TV shows in HD quality.

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly option, then you might want to consider a streaming media player like the Roku or Amazon Fire Stick. These devices can be used to stream content from services like Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Prime Video.

If you’re looking for a streaming player that can also play Blu-ray discs, then you might want to consider the Samsung BD-J5900. This streaming player has also built-in Wi-Fi.

A lot of streaming devices are compatible with Blu-ray players but it’s important to check if your device supports this feature before purchasing it.

Gaming console

If you’re looking for a streaming device that can also play games, then you might want to consider investing in a gaming console. The most popular gaming consoles are the Xbox One and PlayStation.

Both of these streaming devices have built-in Wi-Fi so they can be connected to your home network. They also offer streaming apps like Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime Video, and much more! 

If you’re looking for something more powerful than an Xbox One or PlayStation streaming player then it might be worth investing in one of these two devices instead.

The only difference between these two consoles is their price point; the PS has been around longer but costs significantly less money than its counterpart at least half.

AV Receiver

An AV receiver is an essential streaming device for any streaming room. An AV receiver will allow you to connect multiple devices and create a surround sound setup for your streaming experience. 

It’s also important to consider how many channels the receiver has available; if you want more than just stereo speakers then make sure that it supports at least four or five!

When choosing an AV receiver, it’s important to look into what features are included in the package such as HDMI inputs/outputs, and whether they support HDR video content like Netflix shows.

Surround sound system

A surround sound system is essential for any streaming room setup. A good surround sound system will give you an immersive experience when streaming movies or TV shows on Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Prime Video.

It’s important to consider the size of your streaming room before purchasing a surround sound system. If you have a small space available then it might be worth investing in bookshelf speakers instead. 

You should also look at what other devices are connected to this receiver so they can all work together without any issues!

HDMI Cables

HDMI cables are essential streaming devices that will allow you to connect multiple streaming players and streaming TVs together. They come in various lengths so make sure you pick one that fits your streaming room setup!

It’s important to consider the type of HDMI cable when purchasing them; if possible, buy one with a longer cord length as this will ensure better connectivity between devices like Blu-ray players which tend not to have wireless capabilities (unless they’re newer models).

Conclusion

These are the essential streaming devices that you need for your streaming room setup. Make sure to consider all of these devices before making your purchase so you can have the best streaming experience possible!
