The biggest news for most buyers in the custom installation segment of TV buyers is the expansion of the Master Series. This line includes TVs with the best picture and features including OLED. For those that demand the best possible presentation of movies, sports, and television programming, a Master Series TV is your best option. While prices are higher than the Non-Master Series, the features are more robust and image quality is higher.
There is no despair for those who are not quite ready for the Master Series. The mid-range line is robust and more affordable with exceptional image quality compared to other TVs in the category. Last year’s mid-range line won many awards. This year’s lineup should be no less.
Of course, Sony remains the leader in 4K home theater projection. The VPL-VW295ES and the VPL-VW695ES are standards in home theater. Both of these projectors bring true 4K UHD to the large screen in your house with exceptional performance.

Dolby Laboratories introduced Dolby Atmos, the object oriented surround sound technology, in mid 2012. This technology allows sound to be placed in a room three dimensionally (3D). Interestingly, this technology does not replace earlier versions of Dolby’s surround technology, which is channel based, but appends the 3D sound with additional “height” speakers. As with most new standards in the A/V business, it has taken some time for the product space to mature and be widely available to consumers. Now, many movies are being released with a native Dolby Atmos soundtrack and the hardware side has caught up as well with manufactures like Yamaha, Pioneer, and Speakercraft leading the way.
Dolby’s marketing tag line for Atmos is “Hear the Whole Picture”. That goes to say that with a good system setup, the object oriented surround is lush and compelling. Here are some of the benefits from Dolby: Read More

When building your home theater or media room and setting up everything for an optimal experience, there are a few things that you should consider:
Equipment is the most obvious element of your home theater that will affect your experience. The basic home theater equipment list might look something like this, amplifier or receiver, source such as Blu-Ray player, monitor and speakers. Each of these components affects the overall experience of your home theater. You should take care in choosing each making sure that it is suitable for your performance expectation and your budget.
If you have a control system or have ever had one you will know the difference. If you have never had one I will shed some light on that issue for you. A remote control is simple. It issues commands one at a time to your entertainment sources, be it a TV, DVD, BluRay, Cable box, or Sattelite box. It may be IR (direct line of sight) or RF (issues commands through walls or cabinent doors) or it could be a combination of the two. In essence you combine several remotes into one remote but you still have to issue commands manually by memory. For example, you would normally change the remote control to TV, turn on your TV, then change the remote control to DVD, turn on your DVD player, then change your remote control to surround receiver, turn on your surround receiver, then you would change your surround receiver to the correct input. Now if you remembered all those steps you would have to Read More
The 2010 CES Show in Las Vegas is over. CES from the very beginning has marked coming trends in consumer electronics and, for the purpose of this article, home theater. This year is no different. There is renewed optimism as attendance this year is up from last year. With renewed optimism comes new goodies and technology for home theater enthusiasts around the world.
This year the show marked the rise of the e-readers and Android. Intel brought on their new “super” processors and we even saw an amazing interactive remote control for Windows 7 which is sure to bring some cool new things that we can do with a Windows Media Center PC. Of course there are all the new TVs and more gadgets than you can shake a stick at – some laughable and some amazing—but what interests us the most is home theater.
The CEDIA Expo has been called “Disney World for Geeks”. If you are the kind of geek that loves home theater, audio/video, remote control systems, distributed media, and other marvels of the sort, then yes, CEDIA is your Disney World. This year’s CEDIA Expo was special for us for a couple of reason: 1. As we prepare to open our showroom for Chattanooga area residence, we get one final look at products we think our customers would be interested in and evaluate them for addition. 2. The 2009 CEDIA Expo was held in Atlanta, GA – just a stone’s throw from good ole Chattanooga, TN.
