It’s getting colder in Iowa City, IA, and the holidays will be here before we know it. If you’re looking to upgrade your home theater or treat a loved one to a home entertainment gift, you may be tempted to DIY or find them something simple from Amazon. But for an overall improved AV experience, let’s do it together!
Professional home theater and audio solutions will always make a difference when compared to attempting yourself with cheap plug-and-play gadgets. You’ll enjoy higher quality audio and video and smarter control, all and aesthetically blended into your home. Get inspired for the holidays below.
Does the music-lover in your life deserve a better speaker setup? Treat them to robust sound that they can spread throughout the house so that music is always in their life. With Sonos, you can wirelessly group speakers to play in sync and control via the Sonos app.
If they already own a few speakers or a home theater setup? Give them the gift of deep bass notes with the Sonos Sub. The stylish subwoofer doesn’t vibrate at all—you’ll only hear those hard-to-reach low notes that boost any song or movie scene.
An AV professional like Reference Audio Video & Security can help you assemble an audio system customized to any rooms. We can take it a step further with in-wall and in-ceiling speakers that discreetly play high-tier sound without a device in sight. Imagine enjoying an at-home New Year’s celebration with your favorite tunes wafting through the air, controlled in one tap from your phone.
Screens have come a long way in recent years. Are you still watching movies and shows on subpar picture quality? Maybe it’s time to ask Santa for an OLED TV. OLED stands for organic light-emitting diode, which means there are millions of self-illuminating pixels that don’t use a backlight. The result? Deeper blacks, swifter refresh rates, and more vibrant colors. You can find OLED from major manufacturers like LG, Sony, and Samsung.
Samsung’s QLED 4K screens aren’t quite OLED, as its ‘quantum dot’ technology uses a backlight. But the microscopic quantum dots improve the LCD screen’s brightness and contrast, making it a step above other flat screens. QLED by Samsung is available in a wide array of sizes, from 32 to 98 inches. An OLED screen will offer more contrast and darker blacks than QLED, but QLED is less of an investment for excellent picture quality.
Maybe you’d like a surround sound system in a home theater or listening room. Or perhaps you need help mounting a screen or building an in-ceiling lift. Working with an AV professional like our team unlocks a world of possibilities. Wires, speakers, receivers, and amps can be confusing. Let us take care of it for you.
