Take us up on top-notch gear for your DIY home theater system and instantly turn your home theater system into something even bigger. Whether it’s to binge-watch your favourite Netflix series, to entertain a passion as an amateur movie buff, or you simply want to enjoy having a home entertainment center all your friends can be jealous of, here’s top 4 picks on how to do it.
You gotta have a great TV
There’s a number of affordable 4K TVs and 1080p TVs available that can work wonders at increasing the appeal of a regular TV room. Ideally, you never want to shoot lower than 720p in high-definition picture quality. The wider the color gamut, the more HDR brightness, and the more inputs, the better. Consider one preferably with at least two HDMI ports.
A Bluetooth soundbar is a big upgrade
Although surround sound used to be where it’s at, these days, it’s less about being surrounded and more about what you can do with your home theater audio sound. A wireless Bluetooth soundbar is compact, sleek and modern, and provides high quality sound in a very smart way. Bluetooth-enabled devices can also sync up with this soundbar very easily, making it a simple process to listen to podcasts, play music, and broadcast directly from your smartphone.
Connect a media streaming device
If you don’t already have a media streaming box in your home theater accessory collection, it’s almost a necessity in this day and age to have one. A media streaming box can be used to connect with social media, Netflix, streaming platforms, and to stream your very own media. Streaming your favourite TV shows and media has never been easier with your home entertainment devices, as long as it’s paired with a quality Apple TV-esque media streaming box.
In this day and ago, more Canadians are getting rid of their cable subscriptions. Although there’s thousands of hours of media available on platforms like YouTube and Netflix, it doesn’t hurt to have some local programming thrown in there. Through using an HDTV antenna, indoor or outdoor, there’s the opportunity to pick up up to 20 channels of predominantly local and regional programming.
