Sonos Playbar Review – A Review From A Audio Enthusiast

Today I want to do a quick review of the Sonos play bar. This is a wireless soundbar, one of the more high-end ones, and I should mention before we get started though, that I found a pretty good deal on this soundbar, and I’ll put a link in the description below so you guys can check that deal out. So, right off the bat, I’ll tell you I’m not a sound bar guy. Well, I should say I wasn’t a sound bar guy. But I’d always been a firm believer in; you need bookshelf speakers or towers for any decent quality sound and home theater type scenario. But I will say, the Sonos is pretty amazing for what it is and how much it costs. It’s a little more pricey than certain soundbars, but the sound is honestly really, really good on this. It has a clean look when mounted, and I was shocked at the amount of big sound that you can get out of a small system like this. The review I’m doing is for the play bar only, you can get it in a 3.1 home theater or a 5.1, but those are considerably more money. This one is just for the sound bar it doesn’t come with any subwoofer or anything like that. But I’ll tell you for music and movies; it’s amazing the sound that comes out of this thing. Of course, it’s one of those things you have to hear to appreciate, so

Samsung UN82NU8000 Review – Behold The 82 4K Monster!

Today, I want to do a review on the Samsung UN82NU8000. This is an 82 inch 4K 8 series, which is new for 2018 for Samsung. It’s a new set. I hadn’t seen any reviews on it yet, so I thought I’d give you guys my two cents on it from my experience. So, yeah. The eight series, they make in quite a few different sizes. The one I’m reviewing is the 82-inch version, but they do make quite a variety of sizes. I will say for a 4K set, go as big as you possibly can. This is the first TV that I’ve had that size, and I’ll tell you right off the get-go, it’s nothing short of breathtaking. I used to have a projector in a home theater room, and it was good. It was an older Sony projector, and I was pleased with it. But you can’t get anything near the clarity and the color that you can get with an actual panel. The 4K panel in this thing is stunning. The bezels are so small in it; you can’t even tell it’s there. It looks like a free picture on the wall. The color representation is super accurate. It’s very, very clear, and the deepness of the blacks is just great. I mean, it’s getting to the point now where it looks like you’re almost watching what’s happening through a window. It’s so clear. Remember, with a 4K set, because it’s such a high resolution, you

Philips Hue Starter Kit Review 2019 – Is This Still The Kit To Get

Today, I want to do, kind of a quick review for you guys on the Philips Hue lighting system. I should mention, too, that I found a pretty good deal on the Starter Set, which is the set I’m reviewing, and I’ll throw a link in the description below, so you guys can check that out. I was looking for a good, all in one starter kit, for a Hue-style light bulb. Which is the RGB-style light bulbs you can have, all at, like, 16 million different colors in them? They can do a little bit more than, also, but the Hue system is what I decided. I think it’s the best one for the money, by far. The four bulb starter kit is the one that I went with, which comes with four bulbs, and the receiver hub. It’s a fully automated system. You can use it with Apple Home Kit; you can use it with Google Assistant, you can use it with Alexa, which is the big home three automation systems out there right now. But it works very well. The colors are very accurate. They’re perfect. It can be dimmed from anywhere, from not on, to full brightness. There’s a lot of modes that you can do. Like, there’s thunderstorm modes, where it’ll kind of flash. It has different programs, like, kind of a beach feel, on different waves, and they’re always adding things all the time. Or you can do, set it to a specific color,

LG OLED65C7P Review – This Is 4k OLED Perfection!

Today, I want to do a quick review of the LG OLED65C7P. It’s 65 inches, and it’s a 4K OLED TV, the 2017 model. Now, I should mention that I found a pretty good deal on this TV and I’ll put a link in the description below so you guys can check that deal out. This is LG’s newest top-of-the-line 4K OLED television set. If you’re new to the world of 4K or OLED, it’s a pretty significant change. I’d say probably the most substantial change in television since they switched from standard definition to high definition. OLED is the big thing here, but an OLED panel in 4K, especially this LG panel, looks unbelievable. Seriously, it seems like you could reach out and touch the image that’s going on. That, of course, depends on the camera but 90% of what I’ve seen on it, it almost looks like it’s in 3D without having the 3D glasses. It’s that good. So, if you want the short version of this television set, I’m super pleased with it. I highly recommend it. I think it’s the best high-end 4K OLED panel out there, hands down. Remember one thing, too. If you’re going 4K like this one is, buy a bigger television set than you would typically think because there’s so much detail on the screen. If you get a 50-inch or a 42 or a 55, you have to sit closer, typically. So, if you’re used to a 50 or a 55,

Sonos Play 1 Review (2019) - Still The Best!

Sonos Play 1 Review (2019) – Still The Best!

Here’s another review for you guys on what I think is the best wireless speaker for streaming music through your Alexa or your Google Assistant or your Apple Home Kit that there is out there right now. In my opinion, the best sound for the money, definitely for the money and it’s by Sonos, and it’s the Sonos Play One. Now it’s a mid-priced unit. I would say. I found a pretty good deal on it, and I put a link below in the description so you guys can check that out if you’d like. But the nice thing about this speaker is three things. One, and the most important thing is the sound quality. This is on a part if not better than the Bose Soundlink Systems. I’ve tried them — Sony’s higher-end systems. This thing sounds good. It really will fill your entire room with music. Excellent clarity. Good bass too. I was also astonished. I didn’t think the bass was going to be that good with this unit. The other thing that’s nice about this one is that it works with Bluetooth so you can Bluetooth from your phone and stream music right into it even if it’s not paired with your home situation. Now I used the Google ecosystem. This works perfectly fine with the Google ecosystem. It will stream, I have a Google Home Mini that I can Stream into this. Sounds way better than the Google Home Mini. But any music that I have

LG OLED65E8PUA Review

LG OLED65E8PUA Review 2018 – The NEW King Of 4k OLED For 2018

Here’s a review for you on the new 2018 model of LG’s OLED TV. The model number for this line is E8PUA. It comes in a 55″ version and a 65″ version. The 65’s the one that I’m reviewing. I hadn’t seen too many reviews on it. It’s very new. I would give my two cents on it from my own experience. I should mention, too, that I found a pretty good deal on it. I’ll throw a link in the description below so you guys can check that out. Anyway, if, in my opinion, you’re looking for the best 4K OLED TV on the market right now, this is the one to get. The 65″ picture is big, but with a 4K, remember, you want to go as big as you can because there’s no point in getting a small TV with a 4K if you’re sitting anywhere further than about 10 feet away. Because you really, your eye won’t notice the difference in the detail. The OLED picture is just stunning. It looks like you’re almost looking out the window at what’s happening on the image. It’s so clear. It almost seems like it’s in 3D. The color is very vivid. It’s excellent on this television set. The blacks are intense. It has a high dynamic range on it, and it looks good. Since it’s an OLED panel, of course, the blacks look very good just because you can turn the pixel off, so it’s not displaying any

How to use Facebook Marketplace on iPad

Lately, Facebook has updated its IOS app by launching a Marketplace feature and many have been asking themselves where the facebook marketplace on ipad is. This feature enables Facebook users to sell new, used or refurbished products. In the past, individual sellers were still able to sell their products using other platforms and sites. However, unlike the Marketplace feature that offers Facebook users a wide range of audience, in the past individual sellers could only sell to small groups of people. Nowadays, if you have items you don’t use or you would like to sell, you just need to use your iPhone or iPad to take a photo and publish it on Facebook Marketplace. Since this feature uses the latest technology, your item can be seen by thousands or even millions of Facebook users. Facebook Marketplace has a wide range of features to improve the user experience, for instance, you can use filters to narrow down your search with location, products and cost among other things. Facebook Marketplace availability Is your Facebook marketplace not on your iPad? Since this feature is new, it is only available in select countries. However, with its immense success, we expect the feature to be launched in other countries around the world. When this happens, we will keep you updated because we are here for you. Also, the buy/sell feature is only available to mobile platforms i.e. IOS and Android are the only operating systems that are supported. However, we expect a web version of the

Bose Lifestyle 650 Review

Bose Lifestyle 650 Review – Can This System Convert Me To Bose?

This is Bose’ absolute top of the line surround sound system they sell, and it is a little pricey, but I should mention though I found a pretty good deal on it, and I’ll put a link in the description below so you guys can check that out. So this is the all-in-one 5.1 system, it comes with the receiver, remote, speakers, everything you need right out of the box. It can stream right from Alexa if you have Amazon, it can hook up through your Google, it can hook up through your Firesticks, all sorts of things like that. But really, that’s a side thing. The most important thing is the sound. Now, let me caveat this by saying I’ve never really been a home-theater-in-a-box … or I’ve always bought separate speakers, pieced together systems piece by piece, and I’ve never been necessarily into this kind of all-in-one type systems. But I’ll tell you right off the get-go, I was blown away by this Bose thing. It, in my opinion … And I wasn’t sure if it could justify the price because you can put together a pretty decent system for this price. But honestly, now I’ve been listening to this, I don’t think you can. Just to be honest, I don’t think you can … It sounds good, especially for movies. Bose, love them or hate them, they make some right sounding equipment. They know acoustics. Part of the problem with piecing together systems is your room acoustics
