March’s best deals on connected home theater devices


Written by:

When building a home theatre system, there are several elements to consider to get the best listening and viewing experience for your space. 

Do you already have a streaming media device? Do you want a new smart TV? Are you interested in Dolby Atmos or a TV that has 4K or 8K? And do I already use a voice assistant, and want a system that works with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Samsung’s SmartThings or LG’s ThinQ?
