Hey guys this is Austin. Welcome to my new gaming and home theater setup. The star ofthe show is absolutely the Samsung Curved SUHD TV and I’ve got to give a big shoutoutto Samsung for sponsoring this article. At 65inches this really fills out the setup butthere’s more to it than just the look, with a 4K Quantum Dot panel it’s hard to arguewith the picture quality.
The color is on point and it gets surprisingly bright, even Hey guys, you won’t believe some of the new innovations in kitchen appliances. In fact, I had to go … in a relatively well lit room it holds up and a lot of it is thanks to the HDR 1000tech to really maximize dynamic range. Paired with the Quantum Dot display you’re getting solid color accuracy. As a TV in 2016 it of course has smart TV features and while I usuallyend up just ignoring these Tizen on the 9Series is actually pretty quick. Somethingcool is that you’ve also got PlayStation Now built-in, pair a DualShock 4 with theTV and you’re ready to play. As with all cloud gaming setups this is reliant on havinga decent internet connection but I was pleasantly surprised at how usable it was even over Wi-Fi. You can rent games individually or subscribe to play the entire catalog and there’s a Diy Wooden Sign!
Diy Home Decor Idea! decent selection of some of the best games on the PlayStation 3, it’s a nice additionto the TV and you’ve also got the option of using Gamefly streaming as well. Gaming on it is solid as you’d expect and with a coax input I was even able to go old schoolwith an Intellivision to get some retro gaming in on a 65 inch TV. The remote is simple andclean too with voice commands that actually work and there are cool little features likethe TV automatically recognizing what’s connected to the inputs. I also set up mygaming PC which for now is the Hadron, it outputs a clean 4K signal to the TV whichnot only works for video but also gaming, especially when it’s paired with an Xboxcontroller it works well as a 4K couch gaming setup. Speaking of my main gaming consoleis actually the Xbox One. It might not perfect but there are quite a few Xbox exclusivesI enjoy such as the Forza series. For audio I use a Samsung J450 Soundbar, not only doesit pack a serious punch for being so tiny but it also has a wireless subwoofer whichI’ve got off to the side and the entire audio setup turns on and off automaticallyalong with streaming audio wirelessly.
It might be a small thing but when it comes toall of this tech in a single setup cable management is a serious task. To help everything popa little I’ve got an Osram LED strip run behind the TV, not only can the color be changedbut it just does a lot to make everything look cool. Making sure everything stays runningnice and smoothly is the Google OnHub router, I live in an apartment with a ton of Wi-Finetworks and the OnHub does a killer job of cutting through the noise to keep a consistentsignal going. I’ve also got most of my console collection out on display, I haven’t workedout a way to get all of these consoles connected at once mostly out of fear for the enormouscable job but it’s easy enough to hook something up when I want to play. Probably my favoriteconsole ever is the lime green Game Boy Color and I actually did an unboxing of this onebrand new a little while back but nothing brings back memories faster than some PokemonRed. I have a few unopened consoles around, mostly from picking them up outdated as theywere on clearance like this PSP and PlayStation TV along with a couple DS models. I’ve alsogot the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy edition out on display, I’m usually not one for collectors editionsbut they absolutely suckered me in on this one.
I’ve still got a lot more work to dohere but sometimes I’m just happy to take a step back and enjoy the setup as a whole. So what do you guys think? Let me know in the comments below especially if you haveany suggestions for future upgrades, this is only version 1.0.
