Back in the 1960's when everything was groovy, stereo consoles were often built into a cabinet or large piece of furniture. Stereo radios, record players and speakers were built in an all in one type cabinet. This was the typical look of a stereo system in late 1960s.
Then the 1970's came in and technology got a lot better. High performance equipment was available that didn't need to be attached to any furniture type piece and brands could be mixed and matched. Also high-fidelity stereo or quadraphonic speakers started to take the entertainment center to the next level allowing you to have great sound distributed in different parts of your living space.
Also the inclusion of the television started to add a lot to the entertainment center. Like the old stereo, television systems were usually their own piece of furniture that stood separate and distinct from the stereo system. As technology progressed in the 1970's and 80's people were able to integrate their stereo and television systems together. At first it was typical to see a small television screen surrounded by massive stereo equipment! The term "home entertainment center" was widely used in the 1980s but more recently the term has been replaced and is now more often referred to as a "home theater system."
By the 2000s, Entertainment or HomeTheaterCenters really took off and the best sound systems were now being designed for home theater and movie sound. For the first time people in the general public could enjoy all the great entertainment value of a movie theater, arcade, or live concert feel in their very own home!
Video monitors increased and it is now common to have a very large flat or projection screen with integrated things like a DVD player, receiver and satellite or digital cable receiver underneath that is controlled with a remote control and also has small remote speakers and a moderate sized subwoofer attached.
