Megan had a Home Theater in Los Angeles installed by another company about 6 years ago. At the time the focal point of her TV was a 50-inch Sony XBR HDTV. It had a great picture on it when they got it, but lately Megan felt the picture was a bit fuzzy compared to what was available today. She started shopping to some local Mass Market retailers but found herself met with TVs that were 50, 60 or even 80 inches in size. “These TVs are just too big” she thought to herself and went back home a bit discouraged. However, now she had to figure out where to go from here….
We get a lot of people in this predicament at Technospeak. There are many answers, all of which depend on your own personal preferences for watching Movies and other TV programming in your Home Theater in Los Angeles. We have installed displays between 50 inches and 106 inches at a 14 foot viewing distance, all of which our customers love. However, one point that we made to Megan was that the physical dimensions of the TV have changed immensely over the years. Six years ago a 50 inch HDTV had a 6 inch bezel all the way around it, making the actual TV dimensions 62 inches wide. Today TV bezels are 1/2 a inch or less. As an example, a new 65 inch Samsung LED HDTV has a horizontal dimension of only 57 inches. Thus it would still appear the same physical size on the wall even though the viewable screen size went up 15 inches.
In Megan’s Case, her existing TV was surrounded by custom cabinetry so she had a physical size limitation in addition to deciding what picture size to get. When Megan first called, she was bit floored by our suggestion to replace her existing TV with a new 65 inch model. However once he had it up, connected to her system and setup with her existing Universal Remote, Megan was yet another happy Technospeak Customer.
