This week we are excited to feature the new Sonos One Speaker. Dubbed “The Smart Speaker For Music Lovers”, Sonos has integrated voice control into its line of high-quality wireless speakers.
Sound is nothing if not complex. In any given scene of a movie, concert, or game, there are dozens of different sounds happening simultaneously, each of which contributes to the overall quality of the audio. Surround sound systems seek to include each of these contributing sounds for a rich listening experience, but doing so requires both advanced audio storage methods and a flexible speaker system that can blend multiple different sounds at different levels of intensity. As one of the most complex surround sound systems on the market, Dolby Atmos can play sound from a wide range of objects at once, allowing you to experience every element of modern audio.
Music technology is constantly advancing, creating new opportunities for us to listen to our favourite songs clearly and conveniently. Yet with every new advance, a new challenge is created. In particular, recent advances in Internet access and computer size have made it easier than ever to play your music from any location. But without the right equipment, you will not be able to hear these songs in their full quality.
In the past, TV’s and computer monitors were quite different. Traditionally TV’s were built to handle an analog signals, from things like antennas and coaxial inputs, whereas computers relied on their trusty VGA ports. Today however TV’s receive their video through the same HDMI ports used on computer monitors. With the popularity and relatively lower cost of a 4K TV compared to a 4K computer monitor, many have asked, Why can’t you simply use your 4K TV as a computer monitor?
Is everyone enjoying the age of screens? Everything has a screen and every screen is different technology. Is it Touch, OLED, Retina, IPS? Do you know what it all means? Which is best?
What do you use your Control4 System for?
- Master Control my home theatre, TV and stereo.
- Lighting control on our main floor. The areas of the home we live in most have C4 light switches set at desired lighting levels. For example, we don’t need 100% brightness in our living room, so we set it at 68% to save energy. All rooms are set at lower levels and we still have ample light. Saving energy = saving money.
- When I pause a movie to go to the kitchen, the TV room lights automatically turn on and when I come back and hit play, the lights turn back down.
