Fall is the perfect time to take a look at the latest technology in TVs and home audio. We’ve moved lightyears beyond full HD TVs, and now we can bring home 4K, LED, OLED, QLED, 8K and HDR. If you’re ready for non-stop entertainment, there has never been a better time to upgrade your home theatre.
The latest in TV tech
4K, 8K, OLED, QLED, or the biggest screen possible? Whichever you choose, this fall you’ll want to watch everything on the latest TVs. Best Buy has all the big brands and the latest TV technology you’re looking for this year.
Which Samsung QLED is right for you?
Samsung has always designed TVs with breathtaking picture quality, and the latest Samsung QLED TVs have true to life colour and contrast, beautiful pictures, and are available in a range of sizes that are perfect for every home.
QLED technology is powered by Samsung’s Quantum Processor, and it packs 33 million pixels and uses Quantum Dots to provide you with a view to remember. Whether you choose a 4K Samsung QLED TV or an 8K Samsung QLED, your TV will upscale the picture of whatever you’re watching to improve it as much as possible.
Some models of Samsung QLED TVs also have direct full array 32X backlight. That backlight will switch off and on depending on what is showing on the screen, so if you’re watching a dark screen you get deep blacks. If you’re watching a light screen, you get the best possible colour contrast.
Take a look at Samsung QLED TVs right now and see if QLED will be the TV for you.
Cozy up to Sony this fall
When you choose a premium TV from Sony you get a display with colourful video, unmatched brightness, and breathtaking, real-world detail. Sony can provide you with that real-to-life window to the world thanks to TRILUMINOS, their top of the line colour technology, and advanced Full Array LED technology for the brightest colours and deepest blacks possible.
When you have a Sony TRILUMINOS display you’ll enjoy 4K X-Reality PRO technology that gives you vivid colour, incredible contrast, and fluid motion without blur. It also upscales your 1080p HD content to as close to 4K as possible. Some models even let you take gaming to the next level with Sony’s X-Motion Clarity technology and Acoustic Multi-Audio to pair your fast-moving picture with improved sound quality.
Sony TVs are available in a range of sizes, so if you’d like to go as big as possible or want a compact TV that’s ultra-thin, you have a wide range of choices. Sony also designs beautiful OLED displays with 8 million self-illuminating pixels for the most intense picture quality imaginable.
All you need for winter is popcorn and an LG TV
LG has always been well known for designing TVs with outstanding image quality and superior motion rate, but their OLED TVs really do need to be seen to be believed. OLED stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode. If you’d like a detailed explanation on diodes take a look at Erin’s article explaining how OLED TVs work.
While the explanation of OLED may be a bit complex, all you’ll care about when you bring home an OLED TV is how beautiful your display is. The latest LG OLEDs have 4K HDR, wide-angle views, and some models have AI processors and AI-enhanced picture and sound quality for the most fluid, natural on-screen motion possible. You’ll also find the LG GX OLED TV that’s so thin it will look like you’ve mounted a piece of artwork instead of a TV.
LG also uses NanoCell technology in their newest 4K and 8K TVs. LG can provide you with a real 8K experience on an LG NanoCell 8K TV because each pixel has a separate effect on the images you see on your screen. With 33 million individually reacting pixels, you get a sense of realism you might not have thought possible in a TV.
Smart TVs let you stream without accessories
Whether you choose an LG OLED, Sony Full Array, or Samsung QLED, you always have the option to bring home a smart TV. Smart TVs offer you all of your favourite streaming services built into a dashboard for easy choice and control. Some smart TVs also offer you voice control and a variety of unique games and apps.
Turn up the volume this winter with the latest home audio
With a big-screen 4K, 8K, or OLED TV on your wall, you’re going to want to upgrade your sound to match your display. Best Buy has so many great options for soundbars and speakers, you’ll have a hard time choosing.
Should you choose a soundbar or a home receiver?
One of the simplest ways to upgrade the sound in your home theatre is by installing a soundbar. Soundbars are plug and play easy to install, simple to use, and provide you with booming audio for movies and music.
Soundbars will have 2, 3, or 4 channels, speakers, and some models have a subwoofer. Many models offer Bluetooth so you can stream audio without cables, and you’ll find soundbars with different modes for movies, gaming, night listening, and more. Soundbars are available from brands like Samsung, LG, Sony, and Polk.
If you’d like to go a bit bigger with your home audio, a home receiver is a great choice. Home receivers give you immersive surround sound and video. Depending on the model you choose you’ll find home receivers with 4K Ultra HD full-rate pass-through, HDR, Dolby Vision, and more than enough HDMI inputs to accommodate all of your home theatre components, external speakers, and gaming consoles. Many home receivers also offer you voice control via your favourite home assistant and Bluetooth to stream your playlists.
Must-have home theatre accessories
From streaming devices to mounts and stands, Best Buy has must-have accessories to get the most from your new TV, soundbar, or home receiver.
Plug and play streaming devices
A media streamer is one of the speediest way to stream 4K UHD HDR content to your TV. Just plug it into your new TV and you’ll be able to watch all of your favourite TV shows, movies, or stream music. Many media streamers are compatible with voice control so you can search YouTube and other websites without typing on a tiny remote or take advantage of Alexa skills.
Put your TV on display with TV mounts and stand
Best Buy has TV mounts to suit any type of installation, and over 1,000 TV stands to suit any décor. You can choose TV mounts that fit snugly against the wall or those that rotate so you have a full view no matter where you sit.
Don’t forget the cables and cords
It’s hard to be patient when you’ve just brought home a new TV, soundbar, or home receiver, and you can prepare for a quick install by picking up the right home theatre accessories. Best Buy has a wide range of cables, cords, and surge protectors to protect your home theatre components.
