The Best Simple Home Theater Setups to Get You Super Bowl Ready
The Super Bowl is a great excuse to buy a new TV and speaker system. There comes a time when TV manufacturers and electronics companies are discounting most products to make room for new models that will appear later in the year. Of course, speakers and sound systems aren’t things that you update every year – you want them to last a long time.
If you’re looking to upgrade your current home theater, we’ve rounded up a number of great and easy-to-install setups for the Super Bowl, movies, and beyond. Check out the three home theater systems we’ve curated below, from affordable to fairly expensive.
The Roku home theater setup
This is a great entry-level setup for anyone who wants an excellent and affordable home theater system. The speakers and subwoofer can wirelessly connect to the TCL TV through Roku’s intelligent operating system. You don’t have to worry about an AV receiver.
TCL 5-Series QLED TV
TCL’s 5 Series is one of the best budget 4K TVs you can buy. It has a QLED panel that is similar to the more expensive Samsung TVs and provides an image with excellent contrast, brightness and color.
Roku wireless speakers
These speakers are specially designed for use with your Roku TV. They’re connected to your Roku TV via WiFi, so you don’t have to worry about cables or finding the right HDMI or audio ports on your TV.
Roku wireless subwoofer
Like the wireless TV speakers, the Roku wireless subwoofer wirelessly connects to your Roku TV and gives your system that much-needed extra bass. (It also works with the various Roku soundbars.)
The upgrade of the home theater setup
Think of this setup as a nice little upgrade. The Vizio P-Series Quantum X is probably the best 4K LED TV you can buy. With a Sonos Beam, one of our most popular sound bars (and you can add a Sonos Sub if you want to build a more rugged home theater system), and the brand new streaming stick from Google, you have a great home theater system for a medium-sized room.
As a vizio P-series TV
You will have a hard time finding a better 65-inch TV that is under $ 1,000. Vizio’s Quantum P-Series supports all popular HDR technologies, including Dolby Vision, as well as surround sound technologies such as Dolby Atmos.
Sonos Beam Soundbar
The Beam is the smallest and most affordable Sonos soundbar. It connects to your TV via HDMI ARC and allows you to adjust the volume of your TV using the remote control. Voice commands can also be carried out with Alexa and Google Assistant.
Chromecast with Google TV
This is Google’s first streaming dongle that comes with a real remote control and a built-in Android TV. It’s the best streaming device for anyone building a smart home around the Google ecosystem.
The Dolby Atmos home theater setup
This is a fairly expensive – but not insanely expensive – home theater system. It’s the first to have an OLED TV instead of an LED TV, so you get a much better picture. It also supports Dolby Atmos, a surround sound technology that is vital for any cinema fanatic.
LG CX series OLED TVs
The CX series is for people who want a great OLED TV without spending a fortune on LG’s wallpaper televisions. It creates a brighter picture with better contrast to LG’s BX series.
Vizios Elevate Dolby Atmos soundbar
Vizios Elevate is a Dolby Atmos soundbar with side-channel speakers that physically rotate while listening to Dolby Atmos or DTS: X content.
Apple TV 4K
$ 179 +
The Apple TV 4K is among the best digital streamers you can buy, especially if you own an iPhone and are committed to Apple’s smart ecosystem.
