Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are on the horizon. This calls for party season. With the right home entertainment units, you can pull off an envious party. Read here 5 Home Entertainment Gadgets to Invest In Before 2020 Is Over.
You shouldn’t simply invest in home entertainment gadgets to throw a great party, but for your own entertainment as well. I like hosting parties time after time. If it’s not a party with music, it’s just a friends’ get together on the weekend to watch the latest episode of our favorite shows or a live sports game on my Spectrum Triple Play bundle. Nights like these call for having home entertainment units.
Before 2019 ends, these are some of the gadgets to invest in:
#1: Vizio 36” Soundbar
You are going to love these speakers. They easily hook up with your TV and projector. They are an all-in-one solution. You can also connect them with your Bluetooth and play music. The sound pressure level is 100Db and the frequency response is between 50 to 20k Hz.
Vizio soundbar has a flat design. It can be mounted on the walls or brackets. The drivers and subwoofers are located beneath the grille. There is an LED indicator too that tells you the volume level.
It is hard to imagine that bass is coming out of a frame so small. It is a lot of power and features packed in a highly economical item.
#2: LG Signature OLED TV R9
The screen of this OLED TV by LG stretches to 65 inches. You are going to enjoy a 4K HDR smart TV experience. It has an Alpha a9 processor for producing deep learning picture quality and the feature of ambient light detection. The best part, it is can adjust the PQ curve of the TV according to the ambient brightness in the room automatically. That means when it’s daytime, the TV will increase its brightness to the maximum so that your experience is not interrupted. How great is that?
#3: Amazon Echo Dot – 3rd Gen
When the first Echo Dot was launched, it was loved by users. It had its edge over Google Home Mini. The third-generation Amazon Echo Dot does everything that Google Assistant does, but it has one hardware advantage every gadget hoarder would love – an audio-out jack. You can connect your Echo Dot to standard wired speakers as well.
With the 3rd generation Echo Dot, you can expect to enjoy better sound quality than generation 2. The sound is richer and louder. You can stream songs from Amazon Music, Spotify, Sirius XM, Apple Music and more. The usual functions such as answering questions, checking the weather, reading the news, setting alarms and controlling compatible smart home devices are included.
#4: SmartThings Starter Kit by Samsung
SmartThings is another kit that lets you turn your home into a smart home. It may not be included in the list of home entertainment units, but I think it’s essential to have one. It allows you to control, monitor and automate your home from a remote location.
The kit contains a SmartThings hub, 2 multipurpose sensors, 1 motion sensors, and an outlet. It works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. It is very helpful in securing dangerous, off-limit and valuable areas of your home. Since you are going to invest in expensive home entertainment gadgets, it’s crucial to have a unit that helps you protect them as well.
#5: Google Nest Hub Max
It was Amazon that introduced the users to the smart display technology with Echo Show but Google refined it further by launching Nest Hub. Max has 10 inches LED screen which is much larger than the original Home Hub. The resolution is 1280×800 pixels. It has a 6.5-megapixel camera as well that can also act as a smart home camera.
The sound quality is great. The unit has 18mm tweeters and a 75mm bass driver. It comes with the usual Google Assistant features with speakers and a screen interface that provides visual feedback. You will be able to see the spoken commands on the screens to let you know that Google heard them correctly.
You can use third-party apps to use this smart display for video chatting as well. Best of all, it is an affordable combination of a voice assistant and smart display.
It’s great to watch the game on a Smart TV connected to the sound system. These days, my friends and I are watching the 2019 NFL game on Spectrum TV at my place. Trust me, with these must-have units, your smart home entertainment experience will reach the next level.
