4K Ultra HD Displays

4K Ultra HD is quickly becoming the standard for televisions throughout the USA. The TVs have four times the pixels of regular HD TVs, and the difference in visual quality is like night and day. When 4K televisions first debuted years ago, their high cost and lack of content filmed in 4K meant that they were typically only found in the homes of technology early adopters. Now, however, 4K TVs are quite affordable, and almost every new show or movie is filmed in 4K. You can even now watch live sporting events in 4K, creating such a lifelike picture, you’d swear you were sitting in the bleachers. 

So whether your Thanksgiving tradition is to watch the Macy’s Day Parade in the morning or cheer on the Dallas Cowboys in the afternoon, upgrading to 4K is a sure-fire way to make the experience more enjoyable.

Multi-Room Music Systems

Music is an integral part of creating the perfect atmosphere for holiday parties. Instead of fumbling around with multiple remotes, struggling to get all of the different stereo systems throughout your home to play the same songs, upgrade to a multi-room music system. With a multi-room setup, you can easily choose your favorite Christmas playlist and enjoy high-fidelity music in every room of your home.

Keep Equipment and Wires Hidden From View

Since 1996, the sound engineers at Revel by Harman have been creating cutting-edge audio products for homes around the world. The science of sound is at the heart of this company, and it shows in their multi-room systems. Their in-ceiling speakers are discreet so that you don’t notice them or see wires, and they sound incredible. The truth is that in-ceiling speakers do sound better than ones that are completely invisible. The reason for that is that the sound waves aren’t hindered by drywall or paint. However, if you absolutely do want your speakers to be completely hidden from view, we can install some models from high-quality manufacturers, and good sound will still be produced. One of the biggest benefits of our sound systems is that they won’t clutter up your home, and they will add value to your property. They’re in the walls and out of the way, making your home look gorgeous and sound beautiful too. CD players and amplifiers can be tucked away in an A/V closet and send their content to the various speakers throughout your home. You have immediate access to it all, including digital media stored on a cloud or server, from your touchpad, tablet or smartphone.

Connect Every Speaker

With no design limitations, you can scatter speakers throughout your home. This allows you to build distinct sound zones so each member of the family gets the most out of their favorite entertainment without disrupting others. Groups of speakers are called “zones” – meaning that you can play different songs on different groups of speakers. So for example, if you and your husband want to listen to your favorite artist at the same time while he is in the living room and you are in the kitchen, you can play the same track on the 10 speakers in those areas. We can group bedroom speakers together, outdoor ones together, or any way you like. Are you having a big house party? Play some fun tunes on all of the speakers throughout your house so that as people move around they hear evenly distributed audio in every corner – inside and out.

Expand Your Music Library

What makes a whole house audio system different, besides being able to connect all of your speakers and install them in the walls, is being able to play music from a variety of different sources. You won’t be limited at all because you can play your own music collection via mp3 players or CDs and stream music online too. Pandora, Tidal, Spotify, and XM Sirius radio are just a few channels you have access to with a strong home network. You’ll be able to open an app on your smartphone, tablet, or touch panel and pick a station or playlist, then stream the music to any location. The user interface is simple and easy to follow, and even displays beautiful album cover art as it plays. Playing music at home has never been easier, and expanding your library has never been so affordable.
