Nowadays, having just a regular TV with a standard remote simply doesn’t cut the mustard. With only the minimum of necessities, how can you really experience the true magnificence of picture, sound, and convenience all wrapped in a delightful and captivating entertainment package? You can’t. If you are looking for great in-home entertainment, your home technology must have exciting pizzazz with options that intrigue you and your guests on a deep and satisfying level.
Whether you’re moving into a new home or upgrading your current one, there are a few must-haves and entertainment rules to live by when you’re considering in-home entertainment. Compiled in this article are the top three essential accessories you need to make every evening legendary.
Surround Sound Speakers
The next thing that will superbly compliment your home entertainment setup is surround sound speakers. We all love that rich sound experience we get when we’re at the movie theater: Action sounds soaring and exploding from the left, now the right, whoa! It’s like sitting right there in the middle of the scene.
You don’t have to own an entire movie theater or an extensive home theater system to achieve this entertainment essential. Surround sound speakers are affordable and available for purchase in many retail and electronic stores.
With surround sound, you hear what’s going on in a movie or video game in equal correlation. When a character on the screen hears something from the left, so do you. And, Watching sports with surround sound is just otherworldly! You’ll feel like you’re in the stadium with your favorite team. Isn’t that a great feature to have in your home?
If you’ve never had satellite TV before then prepare to be amazed! Satellite TV offers so much more than you can imagine: With a wide range of channels of different genres to choose from for the whole entire family, including channels from different regions and in different languages, satellite TV is the go-to source for in-home entertainment.
The benefits of satellite TV are endless. There’s DVR, On Demand, a multitude of sport networks and so much more:
DVR (Digital Video Recorder) is a handy perk that comes with satellite TV. It allows you to record multiple programs at once, in different rooms, at different (or the same) times! The best thing? You can keep the recording for as long as you want and watch it as many times as you want!
On Demand is super convenient. If there isn’t a program available on TV yet, you can stream it on demand. That includes movies, TV shows, and other great content. If you don’t have satellite TV in your home for entertainment, then the chances are that you are probably missing out!
HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface. Unlike older cables that we had to screw into the back our TVs in various combinations, HDMI cables fit conveniently into delegated ports on newer high definition TVs, allowing a highly optimized transmission of audio and video for your viewing pleasure.
Instead of trying to figure out where the red, white, and yellow cables go, people can just pop in one cable and quickly get started on their favorite show, movie, game, sport, or other broadcasts. And, the thing with HDMI cables is they come in different sizes to suit your connections needs. Also, more companies and manufacturers are building HDMI ports into their products, so viewing what you need in a flash is now convenience across a wide range of items. When you optimize your entertaining room with HDMI cables, you are giving a great gift to yourself and your house guests: viewing freedom!
Bonus: TV Mount
TV stands can be nice, but they’re never the most beautiful piece of furniture in the room, nor are they optimized for modern home entertainment. Contemporary homes call for cutting-edge entertainment choices, which means wall mounted TVs are the hot new thing.
The added benefits of TV mounts are additional space that allows your entertainment room to seem more open and expansive (even with an extra large TV screen in it), they promote a popular sleek and modern look that represents current trends, and customizable viewing angles meet your desired visual presentation. TV mounts also safely hold flatscreen TVs away from children that might try to pull them over.
If you’re quite DIY handy then there’s no need to pay anyone to install the mount for you either. They are simple to install on your own, though you might need a friend to help you hook on a very large TV once you’ve secured your mount to the wall. Then you’ll have the perfect addition, or upgrade, to your entertainment room!
