Hear it as if you were there
To get the full event experience, you need to hear the announcers, the calls from the refs, the roar of the fans, and even the sounds of the players as they break through to greatness. Today's HDTVs feature an incredible picture but leave us flat when it comes to sound. Below, you'll find a couple ways to upgrade your audio experience.
2 options for adding great sound:
- To keep it simple, choose a sound bar. They're easy to set up and deliver an upgrade from your TV's built-in speakers.
- Go all the way with a surround sound system. These home theater setups offer the best possible sound.
No matter which you choose, you'll hear the difference. There will be a lot less "what'd that ref say?" in your house and a whole lot more cheering.

Enjoy theater-like entertainment in your home
A traditional component home theater system, also known as a surround sound system, consists of a TV, video sources, a home theater receiver, and speakers. For the best home theater experience, this is what we recommend.
Home theater starts with your TV. A big, clear picture is must-have, and bigger is usually better. Choose 4K or OLED for the latest TV picture technology, and pay attention to smart TV features if you're interested in streaming content. If you've got a dedicated home theater room and you really want to go big, consider a projector that can produce theater-like images on screens measuring as big as 100" or more.
Blu-ray players, 4K media players, and smart set-top boxes — these are all examples of video sources that will provide the audio/video content you'll play on your home theater system. These devices provide a wide variety of entertainment options — many connect to the Internet so you'll be able to stream content like Netflix®.
A receiver is the center of your home theater system. In addition to providing surround sound processing and the power to drive your speakers, today's home theater receivers act as a connection hub for all of your of audio/video sources and your TV. Many of our current receiver models let you control your system wirelessly using a mobile app and some let you stream music from the Internet.
Speakers connect to your receiver to produce the sound you'll hear. A traditional surround sound system consists of at least five speakers plus a powered subwoofer. You have plenty of options when it comes to speakers, from floor-standing towers to in-ceiling models to complete surround sound speaker packages.
Ultra High Definition TVs, also known as UHD TVs or 4K TVs, have four times the picture resolution of regular "full HD" 1080p TVs, and can display much more detail. It's an amazing-looking new technology that gets rave reviews from our customers. Ultra HD TVs are often referred to as "4K" TVs, because they have a horizontal resolution of around 4000 pixels.Shop 4K TVs
Sound bars are simple to set up, and they're great when you don't have a lot of room for speakers. Many consist of one long, slim speaker that sits beneath your TV plus a subwoofer to provide low-frequency punch. You get much better sound than your TV's built-in speakers can offer.Shop sound bars
Wireless surround speakers
People frequently ask us about wireless surround speakers. No home theater speaker is truly wireless, because it will need to get power from somewhere. However, some systems and speakers can wirelessly transmit audio signals from the receiver to the speakers. This eliminates the need to run speaker wire to the speaker.Shop wireless surround speakers
Dolby Atmos is a cutting-edge surround sound format that was developed to give movie soundtracks a more three-dimensional effect. It creates a "height" layer of sound above the listener. Available for a growing list of movie titles and supported by many newer home theater receivers, Dolby Atmos delivers the most lifelike surround sound we've heard yet.Shop Dolby Atmos
