Enveloping Surround Sound
Dolby Atmos has been the biggest advance in surround sound in the past several years. Dolby Atmos and its competitor DTS:X employ a new concept in audio imaging called object-based surround. It provides an unprecedented amount of flexibility for professional sound mixers to place film sounds in an almost three-dimensional sound field, with up to 128 discrete sound objects in a scene. The result is unprecedentedly realistic sound as you have never heard it before at home, where you will feel like you are in the scene versus watching it. The latest receivers and surround processors from the best brands all support these new sound formats. By installing additional height speakers for the Atmos effects, your home media room can rival the local movieplex - minus the crowds and the sticky floors.
Step Up to 4K with Sony Projectors
4K resolution flat-panel TVs are now commonplace, and if you've purchased a new one in the past three or four years, it's likely 4K. But 4K projectors, especially with the latest high dynamic range (HDR) contrast capabilities have only more recently come down in price. Perhaps the best name in projection today is Sony Sony, and they also happen to be the first company to introduce a 4K projector. Sony's ES line of projectors span the affordable to the very high-end laser models, and all of them can handle the ultra- high-resolution of 4K and the HDR contrast which give the picture an almost 3D depth effect. A projector is still the most cost-effective way to get a large picture in a room, and Sony models can project to screens as large as 300 inches diagonally.

Apple iTunes, Amazon Video, and VUDU all stream movies and shows that take advantage of these sound and video formats. You can also buy or rent UHD Blu-ray discs and plat then on the latest players from Sony and other vendors.
