We’ve all come a long way from some milk crates, a sawhorse and an old CRT TV so heavy it required a handful of neighbours just to reposition it. Home theatres and their equipment today are smaller, lighter, faster, sharper and much more realistic. What would you put in a dream home theatre?  Find out what we built from the selections available on futureshop.ca

Sleek, elegant and iconic are rarely descriptions one would give an HDTV,  but LG's 55" 4K Smart TV (55UB8500) is all of these and more. This model HDTV features various flagship technologies from LG, most notable of which is the new webOS Smart TV interface, that first appeared in this line. Considering LG took webOS from HP less than a year ago, the turnaround is quite surprising. Add true 4K resolution, a stunning IPS display, an HRVC decoder that facilitates 4K streaming an you have one of the most advanced 4K sets in the market today and the foreseeable future.

Curved OLED and 4K Ultra HD TVs are once again all over the show floor at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, but LG is hoping to invigorate a part of the TV that could use a fresh start: smart TV interfaces. This has been a struggle for all TV manufacturers, and is perhaps part of the reason why small streaming boxes like the Roku and Apple TV have become so popular. I got a good look at the new-look webOS on LG’s upcoming TVs and it seems like they may be on the right track.

Canadians will be able to buy LG's 55-inch Curved OLED TV (55EA9800) when it launches this fall at Future Shop for the hefty price of $10,999. At just 4.5mm thick (at its thinnest point) and weighing in at just shy of 38 lbs. the TV comes off a little bit like a mini-theatre screen. And it’s OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode), which means you’re getting some of the best picture quality ever seen. LG showed off the new TV for a hands-on look at an event in Toronto, and here’s the scoop.

Passive 3D technology uses a single screen to display two interwoven images simultaneously. Each lens of your 3D glasses is calibrated to see only one of these pictures. When your brain combines these two images, it creates the illusion of three dimensions... but did you know that Passive 3D also has a second use? It can display two entirely different 2D video feeds at once. Meet LG’s amazing new Dual Play technology. It’s going to change the way you think about televisions, especially if you’re a game enthusiast.

LG Simplifies the Home Theatre Experience

Piecing together a home theatre can be a rewarding experience. Sitting back to watch your favourite movie in glorious 5.1 or 7.1 surround in the comfort of your home for the first time can be well worth the time and effort spent setting it up. That's not to say it doesn't take some work. Careful planning and research is needed to make sure you purchase the right components. For those who don't want the hassle, a home theatre in a box may be the solution.

 

LG is certainly known for its televisions and smartphones, but the Korea-based company has made huge strides in the home theater department over the past few years. It was one of the first companies to introduce apps such as Netflix to their line of Blu-ray players, and this year the company looks to improve features and drive down the cost without sacrifice.
