Why Now is a Great Time to Upgrade your Home Media and Home Theater Room

We all have TVs in our homes. Few of us have what the home theater industry likes to call ‘media rooms’. These are dedicated spaces where home theater systems are built and where the focal point of the room is in creating the most immersive, comfortable viewing experience there is. Now’s a great time to upgrade your TV area into a home theater/home media room. That’s because of the affordability of high quality products at PrimeCables.

 

As one of Canada’s fastest growing home theater eCommerce brands, PrimeCables specializes in providing different home theater products to be used in customized media room configurations. There’s no set rules when it comes to building or upgrading a home media room. Go with a big screen and tall speakers. Use a TV wall mount to uproot your flat-screen and suspend it against the wall. Choose a projector and projector screen for a completely different home theater room. Select appropriately sized home theater accessories if you’re working with a small condo-esque space, or pair together some bigger, bolder products to arrive at something more heavy-duty.

 

Browse the PrimeCables catalogue for the best discounts and deals on speaker systems, HDMI cables, pro audio components, A/V receivers, A/V cables, TV wall mounts, TV stands, outdoor and indoor TV antennas, media streaming boxes and devices, projectors, projector mounts, projector screens, Blu-ray cables, smart home accessories, network routers and switches, and more.

The great thing to remember about building a ‘media room’ is that it does not necessarily need to equate to just an average home theater system. Yes, ‘media rooms’ can be somewhere to watch TV and movies but they’re also ideal for those seeking a place to stream their favourite media off websites like YouTube, to stream and listen to their favourite music, to play video games, and more. Media rooms can be small or large. The ultimate key to a media room is to ensure it’s customized to fit your home and lifestyle. It’s up to the homeowner to decide what best suits their home’s style and needs!

How to Stream Video from your Laptop/Devices to your TV using a Home Theater Media Box

A home theater media box is a great opportunity to create your own in-home entertainment experience. Using a media box, you can tap into key streaming channels such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, HBO Canada, Crackle, the WWE Network, and so many others. With some, you can broadcast social media channels like Facebook, YouTube, and others to your TV screen as well. These are just a few of the advantages to having a media box in your home theater system.

 

In many cases, the primary reason Canadians have bought streaming boxes for their home theater units is to watch their own downloaded content. To do so however, one must know how to stream video from their laptop to their TV. In some cases, you may wish to download a media player like Plex to work alongside a home theater media box. The great thing about Plex is that it works similar to Netflix, however instead of giving you a base of content to browse, the software relies on you to download and load in your own programming. When you do load in your favourite TV shows, films, music, and more, Plex will automatically load descriptions, previews, trailers, and more.

 

If you don’t want to download a full program like Plex to set up your streaming, you can find several applications to help in streaming a single program. For example, there’s Videostream in the Google App Store. By using Videostream, all you need is an Internet connection and the file on your computer. Just select what you want to watch and it’ll load it up on your flat-screen. Regardless of whether you use a larger software program like Plex or something small like Videostream, you need the streaming media box to make it all come together. Sans media box there to accept the signal, you won’t be able to use a video streaming app or Plex-like software.

 

If you are searching for a Canada-made media box to stream media from your laptop to your TV, shop with PrimeCables. Featuring the lowest prices in Canada, we have fast, free shipping to anywhere in Canada on orders above $49, free returns, and a 1-year product guarantee ensuring maximum customer satisfaction.

Canada’s Guide on How to Build a Home Theater in a Condo or Small Apartment

Living in an apartment challenges us to make the most from the space we are given in building a home theater system. Thankfully, home theater technology is becoming more dynamic, pervasive, and advanced. Even if you don’t own your apartment or condo, you can still build a great home theater system without having to re-wire everything. Receive home theater products you can rely on when you shop with PrimeCables.

Before spending a dollar, evaluate the space and consider the different ways you can maximize it. You may want to grab a piece of paper and a pen, and draw out a rough diagram of what you want to build. Keep measurements and weight in mind, and it’s always best to check prices across all components to ensure your budget is kept. There are some great discounts available through PrimeCables’ eCommerce-only home theater month. Browse things like TVs, projectors, computer and gaming monitors, HDMI cables, A/V receivers, TV wall mounts, adapters, switches, headphones, speaker systems, Bluetooth soundbars, TV antennas, video cables, media streaming boxes, and other accessories.

 

If you do end up finding different things that require having to re-wire or change things in the condo, consider speaking with the landlord to ask for permission. In most cases, if you want to change the layout of your space in some way and don’t receive the ‘ok’ to do so, there’s usually an alternative that doesn’t require having to change the space in any way. Then again, some home theater accessories are a little trickier than others. If you need to put a hole in the wall, such as for a wall mount, ceiling mount, speaker mount, projector mount, or something else, it’s better to ensure you have permission. Otherwise, you may risk losing your damage deposit on the condo.

 

Though any home theater can be costly, if you know where to look, you can save $100s. PrimeCables is a premiere destination for such products and especially on our annual Home Theater Month, there’s been no better time to buy. If there are other products you want to mix in as well, it’s possible to do so.

Also, when buying in bulk across home theater month, you’ll see fast, free shipping to anywhere in Canada on all orders above $49.

Why your Next Home Theater System needs to Have a Projector Screen

Your next home theater display should not be some average high-definition flat-screen display. Instead, go with a projector screen. The more advanced that home theater systems have become, the more an expense they are as well. If you want a really big screen, at this stage, it’ll cost at least $1,000 and very likely more.

For a slightly smaller amount of money, you can get a projector, projector mount, and projector screen. The advantages of these three components is that they provide a real theatre-esque experience, allowing the homeowner the chance to modify their screen size and connect almost any media device.

For fans of home theater accessories, projectors provide some seriously stunning resolutions that are equally good to anything in the television screen market. See in detail the biggest sports events, movies, live concerts, and TV binges on your projector screen.

If you’ve never had a large-sized television and are looking for a quick easy way to get there, choosing a projector over a screen is arguably the more cost-effective method. Via PrimeCables’ projectors and projector accessories, enjoy TV-like smoothness and gain more control than ever before over your home theater experience. Create your own HD experience today and enjoy ‘free shipping’ to anywhere in Canada on your projector purchase.

The favourite projector in the PrimeCables catalogue, as selected by our consumers, is the portable LCD projector 1500 lumens multimedia home theater video projector for $64.99.

So for the same price you’ll pay on a TV with technology that’ll be dated within a couple years, receive a high quality projector with the capacity to last a very long time. There’s a reason why the most elite, luxury home theater systems choose projectors over televisions.

Get high-resolution details on the big screen with all the bells and whistles any home theater enthusiast wants.

What is the Future of Home Theater Systems and Home Theater TVs in Canada – see here!

The future of home theater entertainment in Canada continues to build around philosophies of ‘best is better’, not necessarily going with equipment that is bigger or more advanced. What’s the best home theater equipment is a question that varies per person. Depending on the size of the room you’re working with, how many people in the household, and preferences of those involved, the ‘best home theater system’ can mean something different to any which person. The future of home theater TVs in Canada and the systems that surround them are building around the 4K element.

 

‘4K’ is the most advanced consumer-level picture quality shared across TVs in Canada. As they continue to come down in price, the future of home theater systems in the next decade is likely to be built around equipment delivering a 4K experience. If you don’t already have the best equipment for a 4K experience, you’re not going to get everything you could from it. This can be said about any element of a home theater system. For example, if you have amazing speakers but don’t have an A/V receiver to maximize them, you’re not going to get the optimum sound quality.

 

If you want to trick out your home entertainment system to make it future-ready, begin by searching for a good 4K screen with high quality brightness, backlight, format support, and color and contrast. As we mentioned earlier, if you decide you don’t need to go with a monster sized screen, you may wish to look into medium sized screens or possibly going with a projector and projector screen. Much like the history of home theater systems have been built, as we look towards the future, it’s the screen that will ultimately determine the equipment that supports it.

 

Though some experts are predicting more wireless when it comes to consumer portables, we don’t expect to see the same in home theater systems. Cables are a necessity, to this degree. If you want the best quality picture, the best quality sound, and the best quality data transfer, cables are the only way to get you there. Be it via HDMI cables, optical Toslink cables, RCA, or some other A/V cables, expect to see these used in abundance as consumers seek to connect more devices into their home entertainment systems. Subsequently, Bluetooth capability on devices like soundbars or media streaming devices might also be something to examine.

 

For the newest, most advanced home theater system components in Canada, shop with PrimeCables today. Available on-sale, see the lowest prices in Canada and receive fast, free shipping on all orders above $49. Via PrimeCables, gear up for home theater’s 4K future today and upgrade your home entertainment space with high quality on-discount accessories.

Not all of us have had the pleasure of seeing our favourite acts in concert. Sometimes, when a musician, DJ, or artist comes around to our neck of the woods, we don’t always have the money to go. In other cases, you may hope to see a live performance that is no longer possible – like a band that’s broken up, an artist who has passed away, or otherwise. Thankfully, if there’s a live video release of your artist’s concert experience along the way, buying it for your home theater system can make it feel like you’re right there in the room with the music. To this point, this makes the speaker system and audio component of home theater extremely important.
