A home entertainment projector is one of the best ways to get a full theatre experience, and the BenQ HT2150ST is designed to work well for gamers as well. At a very reasonable cost you can have a very large and immersive high definition picture of 100” or more. This BenQ unit has made owning a projector even easier with a number of features that make it easy to setup anywhere in your home.
Flat screen TVs keep getting thinner and thinner, which creates a great aesthetic, but also leaves little room for audio technology. In fact, I am amazed how good some TVs sound given the constrained space. However, if you have a big flat screen with a beautiful picture, you also want big sound to enhance your viewing experience. Here’s a primer on how to connect audio to your TV.
If you are looking for the convenience of wireless Bluetooth, the independence of self-powered speakers, and the ability to get true stereo sound you are finally in luck. Most powered Bluetooth wireless speakers on the market today are standalone speaker units that may sound good but typically won’t provide enough separation to supply true stereo sound. The Kanto Yu5 bookshelf speakers are an excellent solution that looks and sounds great, with a lot of flexibility and simplicity.

Or worse yet, we don’t quite have the right system for the size and shape of our favorite room. Sure, today’s technology is great but also fairly complicated and fine-tuning every element of your home entertainment system will make it look and sound fantastic. Geek Squad is your insurance policy to ensure your system does what it is designed to do, and to maximize your entertainment value.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has enormous potential to change our lives. It is a concept that is just beginning but over the next 5 to 10 years will dramatically grow as devices connected to the Internet start to interact with each other with little or no human interaction. It will ultimately impact every aspect of our lives and home theatre systems are no exception.
Most students want to get the most entertainment they can for the least amount of money.

Here is a collection of low cost TVs that are rated very highly by the toughest critics, end-users.
We all want to save money, and especially college students. School is expensive and having little or no income while in school means money is tight. Media streaming is a great way to save money while still having a lot of great entertainment available. I am going to identify excellent media streaming options for students who want the best of both worlds—low cost and lots of entertainment.
I have always been a big proponent of augmenting your home entertainment system with the full immersive sound of a surround sound system. However, I also recognize there are many reasons why a surround sound system may not be a practical solution. Whatever your reason is, a soundbar or soundbase can be an excellent alternative.
