Home Theater Buying Guide: TV Stands

Buying a TV stand goes beyond style and color; here’s everything you need to know when buying a TV stand.

First, you have to know if the stand you’re buying has enough space to accommodate all your equipment and that has some breathing room to make sure your devices don’t get too hot.

You’ll also want to think of cable management; TV stands with closed backs keep cable clutter out of sight, but you’re going to need enough amply sized holes for wire management. You can minimize the need for large holes, by utilizing the use of smaller cables, which you can find many that are a lot thinner today, but speaker wires tend to take up a lot of space, so plan ahead.

Another consideration is to see if you need to “see” your equipment. Some devices may need you to use clear glass to receive transmissions from a remote control.

Finally, the size of your stand, or no stand at all, will play an important role on some visible ways your television will be displayed. You can go with a floating stand, that has brackets to hold the stand in place, or simply have it sit on the TV’s legs. You can also go with no stand at all, by wall mounting your TV.

Home Theater Deep Dive: Surround Sound

Read More

Nothing brings the magic of a big movie theater home quite like surround sound; with objects flying all around you and deep rumbling bass it’s easy to get lost in the movies and TV shows that you watch. The only problem is surround sound is littered with terms and numbers that can make shopping for a system confusing. By the end of this video, we want you to have a better understanding of the difference around speaker configurations, audio formats–like DTS and Dolby Digital–and how even sound bars can give you surround sound.

A stereo system would be called a 2.0 system. Surround sound starts when you add a center channel, is called a 3.0 system. The center channel handles 85% of the dialogue, so if you want to understand what’s being said on screen and feel like the effects are coming from the center of the screen, the center channel is essential.

Next, we have the LFE channel (which stands for low frequency effects) and this is where all the rumble and punch from a home surround system comes from. When it comes to our surround sound system number, then the subwoofer is the second digit (think of the “1” in “3.1”).

Next, comes the surround speakers–you’ll need two of them to have a true surround sound system. A 5.1 system will work great for the vast majority of surround sound signals that you’re going to get, but there are two new different types of surround sound called Dolby Atmos and DTS X that come from above you. In the number diagram, this would be represented in the third digit (think “3” in a “5.1.3” system).

Now, if you’re tight on space, certain sound bars can produce a surround sound system. Some of them do it virtually–that is, they fake surround sound using special processing to make it seem like sound is coming from the side and behind you. The left, center, and right channels will all be located within the sound bar.

If you want the very best surround sound experience you can get, you’re going to want to get an AV receiver and separate speakers. If you’re not up for all those speakers and wiring though, take a look at a sound bar. It all comes down the sound quality you want to get, and the physical space you have to practically work with.

Home Theater Deep Dive: LED vs. OLED – What does that mean?

Read More

http://bit.ly/DTYouTubeSub

There are really only two types of TV; you have LED and OLED. That one letter can make a whole lot of difference. We’re going to talk about what those differences are, the pros and cons of each kind, and determine what might be the best TV for you.

LED TVs are actually LCD TVs with LED backlights. LCD panels can’t produce their own light; they simply filter lights through a series of different layers to create color combinations for the color you see. LED backlights sit behind LCD screens and produce the light they need.

Recent advancements to LED TVs include the use of quantum dots: a material that helps LEDs produce a more perfect white light, thereby allowing an LCD panel to do a better job reproducing a wide range of colors and even brighter images.

OLED, which stands for “Organic Light Emitting Diode”, have LEDs that produce their own lights and colors; that’s why you will sometimes hear OLED referred to as an admissive display.

So, what are the advantages and disadvantages of each? LED TVs can get extremely bright–some can get almost twice as bright as an OLED TV, which makes them ideal for daytime viewing or when there’s a lot of ambient light in the room. LED TVs are also less expensive, so you’ll have multiple levels to choose from. On the downside, LED TVs tend to make halos around bright objects on dark backgrounds and struggle to make good black levels. The viewing angle is usually poor–sit off to the side and the contrast and colors fade.

With OLED TVs, the black levels are perfect, which is a great foundation for contrast. OLED TVs are also remarkably thin, produce excellent color, and have an almost unlimited viewing angle. On the downside, OLED TVs are premium, so they tend to be more expensive. They can’t get quite as bright as an LED TV, but will be bright enough for most people.

Right now, to get picture quality on par with OLED, you have to get a premium LED TV. So, if picture quality is the number one concern, then price will be negligible. However, if you want to buy under ,000, LED is the only way to go, and know that you’re still going to get outstanding picture quality.
