8K Ultra HD

8K TVs are yet to gain significant traction with consumers. 

8K televisions offer a level of resolution that is four times that of 4K televisions and sixteen times that of 1080p televisions. Despite this increase in resolution, 8K televisions have not yet gained significant traction with consumers. One reason for this may be the lack of 8K content available.

Home Entertainment Must-haves for the Holidays!

When the family gathers during the holidays, or even after a busy week, it can be a relaxing activity to watch a movie in theatre-like conditions; this is when a modern home theater system would come into play.

Home Theater’s popularity has exploded.

Over the past two years, several factors have contributed to the skyrocketing popularity of home theaters and media rooms.

Second, a switch to a “rent a movie” model has encouraged families to invest in a home entertainment system to enjoy movies easily at their leisure.

The New Sonos Beam is Elevating Home Theater to a New Level.

Following the debut in early October, we had the chance to try out the new product, which may not seem like much of an improvement at first glance, but it can really take home theater viewing to a new level in the right circumstances.

In mid-September, Sonos unveiled the second generation of the Beam soundbar, which looks almost identical to its predecessor. It has changed under the hood that makes it Dolby Atmos compatible.

It’s still a step behind the Sonos Arc, but it’s an ideal choice for those who want more than just the sound of a TV and want a system that can be expanded later.
