Want to upgradae your home cinema system or set up a new one without spending a small fortune? Then we've got some great midrange products for you as well as expert tips and tricks from our very own TV & Audio product managers.

TV or projector

When should you opt for a TV? We recommend going for a TV if image quality is your top priority and you want to put up your home movie theatre in a bright room that is hard to darken. TVs provide high-quality images with high brightness and excellent contrasts and black levels. Today’s 4K TVs provide a considerably higher resolution and lower energy consumption than the majority of projectors.

When should you opt for a projector? If you’re after that true home cinema feeling and not too worried about some extra cost, then a projector is for you. The huge screen can’t even be outsized by the largest TVs – and this at a fraction of the cost! What’s more, depending on the installation, the screen size is variable and can be adjusted to suit your requirements. A disadvantage of a projector is its low brightness compared to a TV. Therefore, ideal image quality is only reached in a darkened room. Installing the projector may prove to be a bit trickier than installing a TV as you may want to mount it to the ceiling and lay cables tidily.

Customised audio solutions for individual requirements

Soundbars imrove the sound quality of TVs with built-in speakers When it comes to projectors, sound quality has never really been a focal point. TVs, on the other hand, are being equipped with ever smaller speakers due to their shrinking construction depth. This development has taken its toll on sound quality. But fear not! This flaw can be compensated for with a soundbar. The result: room-filling and powerful TV sound! And it doesn’t end there. Soundbars also require very little space and are super simple to install – two cables is all it takes!

Introducing the all-in-one surround system. It includes everything you need and is ready to go in a few minutes.

For the more experienced big screen enthusiast, we recommend a set including an AV receiver and speakers. While out-of-the-box solutions already provide the speakers and main device, an AV receiver can be combined with different kinds of speakers. This will bring you a step closer to your personal home cinema and will allow you to improve the sound quality by buying individual, better-quality components. We have put together AV receivers and our customers’ favourite speaker systems and are offering them at promotional prices.

Headphones for the wee hours of the morning Great if you don’t want to disturb others, are squeezed for space or simply appreciate great value for money. As for you gamers out there – precise surround headphones are absolutely essential for you as it is. Plug in, get started, fully immerse!

A single remote to control it all

A universal remote control puts an end to that smorgasbord of remotes for all your devices. All it takes is a few simple steps to configure your devices for your new universal remote control. You can even set up so-called “activities” including “movie”, “concert” or “TV”. All it takes is a push of a button and the required devices will be ready in just seconds!
