$550 TCL's 55s425 has the Roku streaming software built in and gives you a 4K resolution at a price of around $300. Your picture may suffer a bit at angles and you won't get local dimming but this is still a nice step up from your standard HD. The 55" screen size should be just about right for viewing from 6-12' away. TCL's Alto 7+ sound bar will greatly improve the sound quality of your home theater. This system won't shake your walls but it should give you a much more rounded soundscape. APC's low profile direct plug in surge protector will suffice here since we only have the TV and the sound bar needing power. A Logitech Harmony universal remote allows you to control your entire system with one hand. Finally, a low profile wall mount for the TV and a TV mount for the sound bar will keep everything clean and tight to the wall. - 11/2019
BIGGER & BETTER SCREEN + BETTER SOUND
$1500 Our mid-grade package has been streamlined for 2019. We are dumping the 5.1 surround system for a Dolby Atmos sound bar. This is a credit to how good sound bars have become in recent years and a desire to avoid unsightly speaker wires. The TV has been updated to TCL's 2019 6 series. While there is more competition in this price range when it comes to overall picture quality, the slightly better price and Roku smarts of the TCL help keep this TV as our mid-grade pick. - 11/2019
THE BEST PICTURE + THE BEST SOUND
$3500 The center piece of our most expensive package is the LG B9 65" OLED TV. OLED TV's can turn individual pixels off completely giving you perfect blacks and, therefore, infinite contrast. The B9 supports the best video formats along with HDMI 2.1 and eARC. LG's WebOS software along with the "Magic" remote work very well. WebOS supports a respectable catalog of apps but the Roku ecosystem is still the most robust. The Roku Ultra 2019 is fast and clean and features a remote with voice search and a headphone jack for private listening, BUT it doesn't support Dolby Vision so we have included a Chromecast Ultra as well. Between the apps natively supported by LG, the Roku Ultra, and Google's Chromecast you should have access to any and all services available. We are teaming the Denon AVRS740H receiver with Onkyo's 7.1 system in a box. There is almost no price ceiling when it comes to speakers but this set will fill a large room or basement with plenty of high quality sound. The Denon receiver can handle the highest quality Dolby Atmos soundscapes up to a 5.1.2 speaker set up. We round everything out with some certified premium HDMI cables, 12 gauge copper wire, wall mounts, speaker stands, and our trusty Belkin surge protector. -11/2019
