Home Theater Options Ideal for 4K Movies

Couple Watching Movie — Des Moines, IA — A Tech

Movie quality continues to improve with each new generation. Long gone are the days of the fuzzy VHS tape and the small television screen. Today, the norm is 4K movies, displayed on 4K televisions with crystal clear quality. If you want to have the best quality options for your home theater, then consider specific products catered to 4K movies.

Learn some of the best ways to watch 4K movies with the help of multiple resources. As you plan out home theater upgrades, each option can make a big difference on your movie-viewing experience.

4K UHD Television

The television you choose will make the biggest difference on 4K quality. You want a large television with 4K quality and ultra-HD (UHD) features. The ideal size of television for your home theater depends on how far away your seats are from your screen. If your seats were four to ten feet away from your screen, you would want to purchase a television that is at least 50 inches to achieve a big-screen movie feel.

As you browse the specs for a TV, check for HDR (high-dynamic range) features. HDR adds a lot of color depth and visual flair to the movies you watch. When movies often have HDR features built in, you will notice a difference in their quality compared to standard movies.

4K Disc Players

Even with so many streaming options, the best consistent quality for 4K movies comes directly from discs. You do not need to worry about download streams, internet connections, or buffered data. Even with a clear connection, the quality on a 4K disc is often better. Ideally, you will want to purchase a 4K disc player for your home theater.

With high-speed 4K HDMI cables, disc players will offer the best quality. Often, a 4K movie purchase will also include a digital copy, giving you extra options for watching the movie on the go or in another room if needed. Home theater experts can also install a shelf or built-in shelves to store your 4K movie collection.

Three-Dimensional Surround Sound

While visuals are important, 4K movies also feature advanced surround sound known as three-dimensional sound. The advanced technology offers three-dimensional sound so music, dialogue, and sound effects are all immersed and specifically projected through home theater speakers.

The three-dimensional sound is not a specific product, but a feature found in numerous surround sound systems and through companies like Dolby. Consider soundbar installations with advanced sound or multi-speaker systems installed throughout the whole home theater. This high-quality sound is also compatible with many music services.

Direct LAN Internet Connections

In cases where you do need to connect to streaming services, consider a direct LAN cable connection for your home streaming products. If your TV does not feature a direct LAN cable option, then look for 4K disc players or gaming consoles with the 4K options built into the design.

A LAN connection will offer more stables streams than a Wi-Fi connection. You do not need to worry about interference and can enjoy streaming 4K content without extra buffering. The direct cables can handle more data.

You may even install an internet router right in your home theater. Contractors can build a media closet with all of the connections and LAN cables so your home theater is not a cluttered mess.

Blackout Curtains and Shades

If you want to watch crisp and clear 4K movies, the last thing you want to worry about is the sun ruining the experience. Contractors can help with the installation of blackout curtains or shades for a home theater. The blackout shades will completely cover up any natural light so the visuals of a TV are not impacted.

Consider the use of automated shades, so you can use smart speaker voice controls to close the shades as you settle down to watch a movie.

Enjoy a 4K movie experience when you hire our experts at A Tech. We will help you pick out technology, set up equipment, and create a functional home theater that lasts for years to come.

    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!

    Todd and his staff were very professional and easy to work with during our recent project of updating our home entertainment system. I wouldn't think twice about referring A Tech Easy Living Store!!! Thanks

    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!
