I think 'Home Theater' means different things to different people. Some were surprised when we built "nice hauz" (is that what you called it?) that we didn't put in a dedicated room for it. Many of those think you need a 60" or larger screen, forward-facing seating with small tables in between, and of course the 5.1 (or greater) sound system. I don't think they would consider my setup "home theater" because it is a family room.

My opinion is that you need the 5.1 (or greater), a screen (of whatever size), and a media player of some sort. That's a minimalist HT, but it's a HT.

The sky's the limit from there, of course. You can go as big and expensive as you want...
