Do you remember your first TV? Your first VCR? I do. Oh, the nostalgia. The first time you could record a show? The magic of being able to fast-forward through the commercials. Those were the days, weren’t they?
No. They weren’t.
Connecting the red and yellow and white cables in a spider-web like arrangement as you attempted to get both the picture and audio to work between the TV and VCR. If you wanted to record a show onto a tape you had to make sure you had the TV and the VCR set to the same correct channel. If you tried to connect a stereo to get better audio quality, you almost needed an electrical engineer on call. How about trying to record a program at a different time? First you had to set the clock on the VCR correctly. Then you had to set up the timer the right way. Did you have cable? You had to make sure everything was set up just right. You didn’t just need an Electrical Engineer, you needed a NASA scientist.
These days, things are slightly easier. HDMI cables provide a single cable to hookup and devices detect each other automatically. DVRs make it super easy to record shows. The hard part anymore is deciding what actual components you want to hook up together. And part of that decision is the sound components you use. Believe it or not, sound is an important part of the TV or movie watching experience. Why do you think movie theaters have about 50 speakers spread around each theater? Have you ever tried to watch a movie out of the regular old TV speakers? Not as much fun as hearing the swoosh of the jet going from behind to in front of you. Or the incredible boom of the explosions. Or the music that surrounds you. And if you need help selecting your audio experience, Magnolia at Best Buy is here to help. All month long they are having amazing deals on the audio components that can take your home theater experience to the next level. So get over to a Magnolia store now and see what they have to offer for amazing deals on some amazing audio.
