Sony vs samsung TV

Sony vs Samsung TV - Which will get our thumbs up?

 

Without a doubt, Samsung and Sony have some of the best TVs on the market right now.  The technology that each of these companies are utilizing and mastering is remarkable and just plain ‘ol EXCITING.  The picture quality and color creation of these TVs is out-of-sight, amazingly realistic, eye-poppingly clear, bright, etc.  I could go on and on.  Let me tell you a little bit about each manufacturer’s technology and hopefully this will help you decide which is best for you.

 

Samsung flat screen TVs have always been known for their incredibly bright display paired with a super-wide color spectrum. In their BETTER LED models, Samsung touts technologies such as Dynamic Crystal Color which produces millions of additional color shades compared to other Standard HD TVs. They also possess Ultra Slim Array technology which controls lighting for deeper blacks and brighter whites, etc.  In Samsung’s Premium Q-Series line, utilizing Quantum Dots, they developed tech such as Q-Color for over a billion color shades and 100% color volume (zero color-brilliance sacrifice at 100% brightness), Q-Contrast for deep blacks, and Ultra Black Elite anti-reflective coating to further achieve deeper blacks.  All of this is with absolutely no chance of picture burn-in.  Incredible!  One notable downside to the Q-Series TV in general is the loss of color brilliance when viewing from an angle or from the side.  If your TV room is set-up in such a way where everyone is pretty much viewing straight on or at least close to it, the Samsung Q series can be a great choice. If you have seats that are off-axis,  read on for the advantages of Sony OLED.

 

Sony is known for their incredible ability to achieve an absolute natural color and lighting balance. Their Triluminos Display technology helps create a very life-like realistic experience and feel.  For the ultimate in picture quality, check out the incredible depth, contrast and realism of the picture on Sony OLED TVs.  Contrast is a GIGANTIC factor in providing a quality TV picture and thanks to Sony’s OLEDs paired with their Pixel Contrast Booster technolgy, ultimate blacks and bright whites are created resulting in an incredibly detailed and accurate looking picture.  All of this is achieved using Sony’s super powerful X1 Ultimate Picture Processor. This is the best-looking TV and technology we have seen to date.

 

All the above aside, as a quick recommendation:

  • If you want the BEST TV possible, choose Sony OLED.
  • If you have seating that is off-axis from the TV, choose Sony OLED for the BEST picture or Sony’s 850F series.
  • If you want the brightest TV for the money AND you sit in front of the TV, choose Samsung Q series.
  • If you want the most natural colors, choose Sony vs. Samsung. 

 

Here’s some of our IMO recommendations:

Best:       #1 – Sony OLED (A9F, A8F)

                #2 – Samsung QLED (Q9FN-Q7FN)

Better:    #3 – Sony X900F XBR

                #4 – Samsung NU8000 OR Sony XBR850F

 

 

If you REALLY want your home theater room or surround sound area to ROCK, add a surround sound receiver and home theater speakers. On a limited budget? We'd recommend adding a surround sound system with a modest TV over using a GREAT TV with no sound.

Best wireless speaker

What is the best wireless speaker to buy? Read below for myths, truths and information.

 

I have been noticing a common request or inquisition among our customers as of late.  This happens from time to time when something new and really different hits the market and generates buzz or popularity.  As a company, we strive to keep on top of these new gear releases and learn about them from top to bottom so we can answer any and all questions you all may have.  One of the top common interests lately is Wireless Speakers.  What exactly are wireless speakers?  Can wireless speakers be added easily in my home?  How do wireless speakers work?  Are wireless speakers truly wireless?  What are the Best Wireless Speakers?  These are the typical questions we receive quite frequently.  I would like to briefly fill you in on the subject, hopefully answer some of the above questions for you, and just give you a better understanding of what wireless speakers are and what they can do for you.

Let me first get this little piece of information out on the table – THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A SPEAKER WITH NO WIRES.  All of the wireless speakers you hear of out on the market have a wire, a power cord.  Yes, they all have a power cord.  They need power to function.  The ‘wireless’ part of these speakers is that the speaker wire that would normally be ran from the audio/video receiver or amp to the speaker is not needed.  The wireless speaker gets its signal not from a wire, but from your home’s WiFi network.  That brings up an important note that needs to be mentioned, a solid WiFi network is not only recommended, but is crucial for consistent reliability when using wireless speakers
