As you upgrade the home theater in your home, you may consider ditching some of the more obsolete technology. While you may have already gotten rid of the VCR in your home, you could still have a DVD player as part of your home theater setup.

As you plan upgrades to your home theater, you may stick with a number of streaming services, but you could find some key reasons to keep your DVD player as part of the home theater design. Learn some of the reasons to keep a DVD player as part of your home theater.

A home theater company can keep the player discrete and ensure the old technology does not create an eyesore. Once you find some common uses, you could find yourself utilizing the DVD player more than you usually would.

1. Looping Content

DVD players have a lot of custom settings that many users may have never used on a regular basis. You have the option to set a DVD disc to a looping play design. This means when a video ends, it will simply loop again and replay the video. If you have a secondary television as part of your home theater, then you could take advantage of the looping feature for a number of DVD discs.

For example, you could purchase a digital fireplace disc. The digital fireplace will showcase a burning fireplace. Some discs feature the natural crackle and sounds of the fire while others with overlay music on them. You could also purchase music video compilation DVDs. When you loop the disc content, you can have a constant music video playing.

Other looping options include sports DVDs like football highlights, skateboarding compilations, or pro-wrestling matches. Every few days, you can switch out the discs and enjoy different moments to loop. The content always gives you something to enjoy, even if you aren’t sitting down to watch TV.

2. Whole-Home Audio Options

A home theater company can connect a DVD system to your whole-home audio. While the DVD video quality is not as good as 4K, the sound quality often remains great and pairs well with a whole-home audio option. You could hear the audio from certain movies or television shows. Ideally, you would utilize this setup to play music from audio-only DVD discs.

Many record companies produced audio-only higher-resolution DVDs that provided higher bit rates than a traditional CD. These discs can play songs from some of your favorite bands. With the whole-home audio, you can hear the music in every room so the sound does not fade from room to room.

With the installation, you could expand your collection of DVD audio discs. You also have the option to purchase discs that feature videos of live concerts and performances. The audio will still feed into every room of the house, and you have the option to watch the video content when you enter the home theater.

3. Internet Outages and Streaming Services

Relying on just streaming services can come with some downfalls. Many streaming companies have decided to purge content and limit access to titles. If you own the DVD discs of specific movies, then you have the option to watch them anytime you want. You do not need to worry about jumping to different streaming services.

You can also rely on a DVD player anytime you go through an internet outage. A DVD player does not need an internet connection to operate, and you can play full movies and television shows without the need to worry about connections, buffering, or any delays.

Let our professionals at A Tech help you with your DVD player connections and full home theater design. We can help provide you with modern options while still giving you the option to watch DVD discs when you want to.

    Todd at A Tech did an awesome job setting up all the electronics in our basement. We have surround sound and all of the electronics are hidden in a closet with only 1 remote. My husband is techy so he worked with A Tech more than I did but my only request to Todd was that I needed to be able to watch tv and play a dvd without asking for help (I am not techy!) One fabulous remote runs everything and has pictures and an easy menu! They also fixed the internet issue in our house! Very Happy Customers!

    Todd designed a whole house audio system with separate controls for every room with one receiver. He was extremely knowledgeable about speaker placement, size and quality. The end product is amazing. He also recommended a remote that controls everything. This is one of my favorite features. I have also purchased several items for my garage organization that I love. They have everything from home audio, garage organization to kitchen items in the store. Will continue to do business with them as I still need closet organization.

    We have had our Beam Central Vac for over 15 years and absolutely love it! It is convenient, easy to use and best of all - keeps the 'dust' out of the home!. We have had very good service when we needed it, we replaced the motor in the unit once (very reasonable) and had replaced the power brush handle once. Pretty good for a unit that is over 15 years old! The folks at A Tech Easy Living Store are knowledgeable and very willing to assist in any way they can. Highly recommend visiting the store! They have LOTS of items that can make your life easier in your home!

    Great products! Exceptional Service! I was out of idea for what to buy my wife. I stopped at The Easy Living Store and they had all I needed to make her happy. I would have never thought of a self opening garbage can as a great gift idea, but they said she would love it and she did! I was amazed at everything the store had to offer and how helpful the staff was there. I will go back.

    Todd did an awesome job getting all the components into our basement home theater system that my techy husband wanted plus making it easy for me to run with only one remote. We are very happy! The guys that came to install the systems were polite and patient with me and took time to explain how to work it all!

    I have hard wood floors and Beam has a attachment I bought it at the store and it is a God send I simply love it, it is a dry mop on the vac! Amazing! I'm buying a spare mop when I go back! I bought my vac at Van Berkum's in Pella (Where I live) never will I go back there, they sent my head out for as a loaner and gave me some one elses. How is that for doing business! We argued for a long time about this and was getting no where she kept saying that it was my head, I will never go back there to buy anything! I'm 60 minutes from Des Moines and I will take my vac to be serviced at the Easy Living Store anytime!

    wish every home repair could be this easy!!! My central vacuum was having issues, burned out motor, poor connection and an outlet issue. The technician called me a bit early and said he was ahead of schedule, perfect! He was waiting when i got there, diagnosed it in about 10 minutes, I asked how long it would take to get the parts, he said he had them on the truck! I thought maybe they were generic, but when they made the appt they asked what model. He made the right diagnosis and fixed in about 20 minutes! Couldn't really ask for much more!!! The only remote downside was when I called on saturday the lady asked me to call back on monday. Great service and a great experience!

    I live in a 50's home. I had A Tech come and redo my closets for me. They had great ideas, listened to my input and now I have great closets, even though I live in an older home!
