The Latest Technology Brings Better Content and AV Performance
It’s hard to imagine, but there was a time when home theater sound was mono, coming from one single space, a flat and narrow reproduction of sound. Dolby Stereo broke through the ranks with the release of Star Wars in 1977 but didn't make it into home theaters until almost a decade later. At the same time, cutting-edge technology consisted of 19-inch high-resolution color TVs.
Times have certainly changed. Today, we have 4K and 8K screen resolutions and 4K HDR laser projectors. The first 4K Blu-ray discs came out in 2016, and our home theater receivers can now handle side, rear, front, and overhead speakers plus subwoofers, delivering truly immersive audio. In 2022, many home theaters surpass the best movie theaters in town.
Technology continues to advance. Let’s look at the latest trends and how home theater installations have changed in Salt Lake City, UT in recent years.
