Like your first new couch or a knife block, there are certain purchases that scream “adulting.” If your living room setup is still throwing off dorm room vibes, maybe it’s time for an upgrade to something a little more sophisticated. We’ve got you covered with tech from Best Buy that will give your home entertainment setup seriously grown up vibes.
Get a TV that’s practically an artist
Now that you’re an adult, you understand that life isn’t just black or white. See the full spectrum with OLED technology for brighter brights and blacker blacks on this LG 65 inch OLED TV. It’s got Dolby Vision IQ to auto adjust based on ambient lighting, plus AI 4K Upscaling. Your fave shows never looked so good.
Mount your TV then pat yourself on the back
A TV mount instantly makes your living room look sleeker. The Sanus Premium Series Swivel TV Wall Mount fits most TVs from 42 inches to 90 inches. The swivel is a nice option if you like watching from the couch or your bed — because some of us adults live in studio apartments.
Subwoofer your sound
Adding a subwoofer like the Sonos Sub (Gen 3) Wireless Subwoofer gives you a richer audio experience. It eliminates vibration and rattling and enhances midrange playback. Basically, you’ll get serious sound quality. Plus the sleek high gloss finish isn’t an eyesore in your living room.
Tell your TV who’s boss
Adulting means telling your tech what to do. This LG – 65″ Class GX Series OLED 4K UHD Smart webOS TV is voice controlled, which comes in handy since another part of being an adult is losing the remote.
Jazz up your bookshelves
Grab a pair of Bowers & Wilkins 706 bookshelf speakers for immersive sound while listening to music or watching movies — they’ve got a frequency response of 50Hz to 28kHz. Not to mention they look very artsy paired with your books and knickknacks.
Become a TV master
The Sony 77 inch Class OLED A9G MASTER Series Smart 4K UHD TV with HDR is the crème de la crème of TVs. Its ultra-slim design and hidden speakers means it won’t clutter the look of your mid century modern living room, while its 4K HDR X1 Ultimate processor renders objects in real time to remaster and upscale everything you see to near-4K HDR quality.
Get the right size TV
If your living room is more suited to a 55 inch screen size, check out the LG 55 inch Class GX Series OLED 4K UHD Smart webOS TV. It’s got 4K Ultra HD capabilities and is simple to pair with external devices via the USB and HDMI ports.
