Many of us would like nothing better than to plonk our bodies down in our favorite chair when we return home, kick back and relax — preferably with our favorite tunes playing in the background, of course. Music is food for the soul, and a good home theater system also works wonders to de-stress with a great movie. Bose has come up with the Soundbar 700 and Soundbar 500 which will crush the limitations of spaciousness from a solitary enclosure, as it merges size-defying performance with superior voice pickup as well as the power of Amazon Alexa. There will be support for other voice assistants in the future, as well as AirPlay 2 compatibility for simple streaming from Apple devices from early next year onwards.
Vizio is no stranger when it comes to consumer electronics, in particular the TV segment as well as home theater systems. This time around, their collection of home theater systems are well positioned to blow your ears away, thanks to the inclusion of Dolby Atmos that will be able to deliver immersive cinematic audio to your living room. Of course, it can only do so much audio ‘magic’ per se, taking into consideration how your living room is set up and how much ambient noise from outside is going to trickle in.
When you want to turn your home into a smart home, you know it’s not something that you can buy, open a box, and immediately have. You have to purchase separate elements of a smart home, and configure them to all work together. Only after you have all the parts, pieces, and bugs worked out does it start to feel like a futuristic home that you barely have to move a finger to control.
Technology is growing at an ever-increasing rate. While this is awesome and means that there will be a lot of advances in medicine, clean energy, and farming, it also means that it’s hard to keep up with all the toys, gizmos and gadgets. Crazy as it may seem, not everyone wants to throw away all of their electronics every year and buy the newest thing on the market.
When you watch a video on YouTube, you can tell when quality is lacking. The image on your screen is pixelated, the sound is tinny, and while you can figure out what’s happening, you know searching for another of the same video will likely yield better results. Can you tell when a speaker at home is lacking quality? Do you keep an ear out for how it handles highs and lows?
My love of gaming is only topped by my love of coffee and food, and when a brand that I know has made some pretty solid products to enhance my gaming experience comes out with a new line, it feels like Christmas. Plantronics announced last month that a whole new series of RIG headphones would be hitting the market during the holiday season of this year. That just lets us know we can start encouraging our family and friends to buy them for us now.
We’re not trying to be lazy when we get home from work, but when you’ve already pushed yourself for ten or more hours, it’s just too taxing to do any more in a day. The moment the shoes come off and you get comfy, many of us end up with a controller or mouse and keyboard in our hands. Usually one or the other would delineate whether you’d be at a desk or on the couch, but thankfully we have all sorts of ways to make it so you don’t have to choose between one or the other.
When it comes to having a decent home theater system, there are many different players out there in the market who are vying for a slice of the pie, which is good news for consumers since this means there are many different options to pick from. Apart from good visuals, one should also look into making sure that audio works great on their end as well. With so many sound bars out there in the market, just which particular model should we choose? Vizio has just the thing this time around, as their all new home theater sound bar collection is revealed, arriving in a new slim design while delivering high performance 5.1 surround sound.
When it comes to home entertainment, the experience that one’s senses go through are slowly but surely about to reach the par of that of a cinema, although unless you are someone who is flush with cash, chances are you would not end up with a cavernous hall that is akin to a small cinema, but rather, would be pleased as punch with a big enough room that has a large sized screen – curved or otherwise. If you would like to go one step further, how about investing in a projector instead? 4K projectors are starting to catch up in the mainstream market, and Acer has hopped along the bandwagon with its V9800 4K Ultra-High-Definition Home Cinema Projector.
