Bluesound: The Future of HiFi Wireless is Here

HighFidelity wireless sound is not just for audiophiles anymore with Bluesound, a sleek series of audio solutions that offer the convenience of wireless without sacrificing high quality music. The company boasts true 24-bit HD digital audio for an unplugged world. Portable audio players have made listening to music easy and convenient with a wide breadth of choice in the palms of our hands – but the quality has suffered as records were replaced with CDs and then MP3s. With 4x the processing speed of other comparable systems, Bluesound allows you to access your music exactly when you want to hear it. With the right speakers, you can listen to 24-bit/192kHz studio master recordings in lossless FLAC format on all Bluesound systems. Their DirectDigital Amplifer by NAD electronics harnesses “the perfection of zero distortion, deeper bass, and texture clarity like no other system can deliver”. This is included in the Powernode, Pulse, and Duo.

Is 4K Ultra HD TV for Me?

In the ever-changing world of television with terms like 3D and LED, 4K Ultra HD might sound like just another addition to the long list of options we have for home viewing experiences. But before you overlook 4K TV, take a look at this quick guide first.

 What is 4K Ultra HD TV?

This long, fancy-sounding term is actually quite the opposite! 4K TV and Ultra HD TV are actually the same types, and are simply generic terms for televisions that have a resolution of around 4,000 pixels wide and 2,000 pixels high.

Viewing experience with 4K-HDTV from multi-room music and video experts at soundworks in armonk, westchester ny

Welcome to the viewing experience of 4K-HDTV!

That just means that they have a high resolution, which means more pixels. This in turn translates to a better quality. In fact, 4K Ultra HD TVs have four times as many pixels than the average HD TV. Not only is the picture quality tremendous, but the difference in color quality and high level of pristine between 4K Ultra HD TV and regular HD TV is astounding.

Why Might I Want One?

4K Ultra HD TV was “born” in movie theaters in 2007, and its use has steadily been increasing since due to its distinctly sharp, clear picture that is not always found in standard HD movie experiences. Its superior quality provides a full immersion experience for audiences, allowing them to be “a part of” the movie they’re viewing.  This trailblazing viewing experience is unlike any other, and can now be shared with family and friends from the comfort of your home.

When 4K Ultra HD TV was first released for home use a few years ago, the prices were ridiculously high (think tens of thousands)! In the past year, there has been an influx of much more affordable TVs available, and 2014 has been predicted to see an exceptional increase in 4K Ultra HD TVs that won’t leave buyers with empty bank accounts.

We also bet you didn’t know that 4K is growing in popularity in other electronics, too! Did you know that the majority of digital cameras take a picture in at least a 4K resolution? Or how about the fact that Netflix will be supporting 4K streaming by 2015? And, at this very moment, 4K quality is in the process of being created for at-home DVDs, too. It’s safe to say that the 4K TV’s stellar quality and experience is catching on, and won’t be slowing down any time remotely soon.

While it may be a winter wonderland outside, 4K Ultra HD TV can transport you and your family anywhere you want to go, from the comfort of your home. Whether you’re considering 4K Ultra HD TV for your home or are curious and want to learn more, our team here at Soundworks is here to help! Contact us at 914-765-0461 or to get started with your 4K Ultra HD TV experience.
