Home entertainment has had a drastic change in the past decade. Things that we could only imagine a decade or two ago are now easily available. The advancement in home entertainment technology has really taken the overall experience to a new level. We have a list of technology you should give a go if you are looking to really beef up your home entertainment system.

VR Glasses

VR technology is really coming into its own in the past few years. You can now even find shows and movies that are made keeping VR technology in mind. The technology allows you to get a more in-depth experience with what you are watching, making it feel like you are actually there. You have a wide variety of VR glasses that are available that provide crystal clear resolution. The glasses are, however, fairly expensive but as they become more and more mainstream the price will continue to drop. If you are one of those people that love to dive in and experience what they watch then get yourself VR glasses rather than a TV set.

4K Television

HDTV became mainstream in the early 2000’s, making a household name for itself. In the past few years, there has been an upgrade to television with the introduction of 4K television. What’s the difference between the two? Well, for starters the resolution of a 4K television is four times that of HDTV at 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. In layman terms that means the picture is a lot clearer, more defined, and the colors really pop. So if you are considering upgrading your screen, then you should definitely give 4K technology a try because it would be hard to get better picture quality then that.

4K technology doesn’t just stop at television, you can also get projectors with the resolution which allow you to bring a cinema-like experience at home.

Dolby Atmos and DTS X

If you are looking for cinema-like sound experience at your home then you should look at A/V receivers that support Dolby Atmos. This is a new technology that provides audio that is rich and realistic, almost 3D like. This means that the audio comes at you from every angle and pretty much submerges you. The technology is so good that it will have you watching most movies at home rather than going to the cinema. We recommend getting a 7.1 surround sound system with Dolby Atmos for the ultimate home entertainment audio experience.

Similar to the Dolby Atmos, you can find DTS’s new technology known as X. X provides Atmos like audio quality and employs an object oriented sound so rather than sound being absorbed by objects, they reflect from it so that you get the ultimate experience.

Amazon Alexa

Thanks to product like the Harmony base hub, you can now control your television with just your voice. You need to pair Amazon’s Alexa with an entertainment base hub product like Logitech’s Harmony which will enable you to have complete control of your television. When you want to turn it on, all you have to do is say, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” It doesn’t just stop there, the wonderful thing about Alexa is that it can control other devices in the room also such as lights, surround sound, shades, and so on. You just need to make sure they are compatible with it. So you can sit back and relax while Alexa takes care of setting the mood for you with just the help of your voice.

Technology is ever changing and home entertainment has completely transformed in the last decade. Whether you are looking to watch remastered classics or your favorite tv show, you need to make sure your entertainment system is up to date, providing you with the optimal audio and visual experience.
