Create the Ultimate On-Trend Home Theater
With the Super Bowl just a week away and awards season in full swing, it’s an ideal time to revamp your home theater to set the stage. Whether you’re hosting an Oscar party or a simple family movie night, Coupons.com brand and product expert Brittany Rycroft has put together a list of the 6 things you need to get equipped and on-trend.
Once you go 4K, you won’t go back. This cutting-edge technology offers four times better picture resolution than a 1080p TV and can bring anything you’re watching to near-Ultra HD quality. The good news is you can grab this stunning picture for an affordable price; many 4K TVs are available for under $1,000 and will easily fill up the wall of home theater space. This one delivers on the sound front too: it offers Dolby Digital Plus and DTS Premium Sound so you can hear every helmet crunch and call on game day.
2. Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote, $39.99
Thinking of cutting your cable subscription? The Amazon Fire TV Stick will make it way easier. This nifty gadget installs in seconds and gives you access to over 7,000 apps and games, including top-rated services like Hulu and HBO Now. The Alexa remote also allows you to control the device simply by speaking. You can even bring it with you when you travel, so that mid-season Netflix binge doesn’t have to wait until you’re back home.
3. Bolt XS400 Home Theater Recliner (Row of 4), $1,996.00
If you really want to create an at-home cinema, then you’ll want to invest in some home theater seating seating — with a few upgrades. A row of plush, black, bonded leather seats equipped with stainless steel cup holders and a comfortable ergonomic design are just what you need to truly settle in for a movie marathon. There’s also an accessory dock to add in your choice of extras, like a USB charger, reading light, or wine glass holder.
4. Bose SoundTouch 300 Soundbar, $699.99
Not every media room needs (or has space for) a full surround sound system, and if you can’t set up five speakers properly, you’re best opting for a different sound solution. Soundbars are designed to go right underneath your TV and will “bounce” sound around the room for a simulated surround sound experience. If you’re going the soundbar route, do your research: brands that really focus on sound like Bose are your best bet for crystal clear audio.
Nothing says “movie time” like the smell of freshly popped, buttery, salty popcorn. Now you can get your favorite theater treat at home: this old-fashioned kettle popcorn machine dispenses your popped kernels directly into a bowl below, and has two seasoning dispensers to add an extra punch of flavor
If you want to create a movie theater-like experience, then you’ll want to go with a projector and screen setup. Epson has some of the brightest home projectors on the market, resulting in brilliant theater-quality images. The Epson Powerlite Home Cinema can play 3D films and project up to 300 inches — you can even project against a wall or bring it outdoors in warmer weather. It also pairs with streaming devices so you never run out of things to watch. If your phone’s dying or in another room, don’t sweat it – the kit still comes with a regular remote you can use on the fly.
