What Are The Best TVs?

Having a TV in your home that offers outstanding picture quality and technology that delivers exceptional colour and brightness will make what you see appear more lifelike – and will forever change the way in which you like to watch movies, TV shows and sport.

“The latest processors allow you to see incredible detail in scenes like you’ve never experienced before,” says John Milonas, The Good Guys Buyer – Televisions and Accessories.

When it comes to choosing the best TV for you, consider picture quality and colour technology first, then make sure it has built-in apps for easy streaming of Netflix, Stan, Binge, Kayo, Disney Plus, and more.

What Are The Best Projectors?

Have room for a 120-inch or bigger screen? Or want to watch Christmas movies outside? Then a projector is for you! Crystal-clear picture quality and a huge screen will transform your home theatre into an at-home cinema.

“4K and Triple Laser projectors deliver viewing on a grand scale, while portable projectors are a brilliant idea if you want to bring the cinema outside to watch movies, live sport and TV shows, especially during the warmer months,” says John Milonas.

What Is The Best Home Theatre Audio?

Great audio is essential to enhance your viewing experience, and adding a soundbar or home theatre system to your set-up will provide a truly immersive, cinematic experience. Never miss key dialogue again!

“As well as improving audibility, the internal or external subwoofer boosts the bass, which is crucial for action movies like the Christmas classic Die Hard,” says Christos Boukogiannis, The Good Guys Buyer – Sound.

“Surround sound and tower speakers are other great options to bring a cinema vibe, and allow you to appreciate Christmas movies with highly acclaimed soundtracks, like Love Actually.”
