Which LED TV is the Best Fit For Me?


Let’s talk about LED Televisions. There are a lot of different options out there, but which type of LED TV may be right for you?

First, we should acknowledge that it’s a very personal question to answer and there are a lot of personal preferences you need to take into consideration when choosing.

We hope to shed some light on it to help you make the right choice for you.

A few things you need to consider are:

  • What room will the TV go in and how big do you want to go?
  • Once you’ve got the right size figured out, you want to think about the resolution.
  • What is the refresh rate of the TV?
  • How is the TV lit?
  • What is your budget?

While these aren’t the only questions you will need to figure out, it will certainly get you pointed in the right direction. If you still can’t decide, we are always here to help!

Should I buy a 4K TV?


Last week, we received the question “Should I buy a 4K TV?” While 4K Televisions have been out on the market for a while, many haven’t taken the leap the to purchase one because many of the cable channels can’t support the technology yet.  If you are in the market for a new television, why not look at buying a 4K Tv.  You don’t need to worry about cable television channels catching up, when there are plenty of streaming stations to choose from like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and more.

So why should you purchase a 4K TV? The new 4K TV’s give you double the resolution of your normal TV, which translates to a higher quality picture.

 

 

Are Subwoofers Necessary For My Home Theater?

In this week’s Tech Talk With Doug, let’s talk about whether or not subwoffers are necessary for your home theater system.   In the past, many people had large box speakers that would sit on the floor.  The large speakers were great because the enclosure enhanced the low end sound of your TV.   Fast forward a few years and most of our speakers are now much smaller.  Even though your soundbar or speakers may produce an impressive sound, they won’t be able to deliver the low frequency sounds that a subwoofer can.

What is a subwoofer?
A subwoofer is a speaker designed to produce very low bass frequencies sounds. At these low frequencies, the sounds can be felt, as well as, heard. In addition to filling in the low frequencies your other speakers may not, the subwoofers can also provide a powerful rumble for your next movie night.

Still not sure what a subwoofer does or how you can benefit from one? We’d love to hear from you.

How Do You Get Free HDTV With an Antenna?

In this episode of Tech Talk With Doug, we answer the question “How do you get free HDTV with an antenna?”

You can get several free HDTV channels by installing an antenna in your home. The best placement for your new antenna is on your roof or in the attic. With the antenna installed, run the line to the main distribution line that feeds to all of the televisions in your home. Once the antenna is installed and the lines are connected, you should be able to view HDTV!

There are a couple of things to figure out before installing your cable:

  • Where will you get the best reception – inside or outside your home?
  • What channels are available for free in your area?  You can search websites like TV Fool or AntennaWeb to get started.
  • What type of antenna should you purchase? They aren’t all the same, so make sure to do your research!
  • Be careful as you head up on the roof or into the attic. This isn’t a project everyone can handle – if you’re unsure it may be something you want to get outside help for.

If you feel like you need some additional information about installing the antenna, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re here to help.
