Soundars: These soundbars are equipped with features of an AV receiver with wireless sub and Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio.
4K TVs: 4K TV’s are starting to become the next big thing in home theater equipment. Recently we did a blog on the Sony 4K TV which you can view here. If you recall, the price was set approximately around $22,000.
Wireless: Wireless connections from smartphones and internet devices was popular. A wireless home theater cannot be 100% wireless because you need power but the option to have wireless connectivity to your equipment is sought after.
Automation: When technology and convenience merge, you get home automation. An example is the Sony/Control4 receiver which enables your Sony remote to control your entire home theater. Read the review from CE Pro by clicking here.
