SMART TV HELPS MODERNIZE LOCAL HOME

Smart TV Parade of Homes

A pair of Smart TV’s from Sony and audio gear from Sonos helps modernize a local home. See how it looks in a newly remodeled home during the 2017 Fall Parade of Homes.

Kenowa Builders extensively remodeled 310 Lakeside Drive in East Grand Rapids. The almost 100 year old home now also has new electronics from Classic Stereo. It is open to the public Friday October 20 and Saturday October 21 from 1-8pm.

INTEGRATE YOUR FAVORITE APPS WITH SMART TV

The remodeled home in East Grand Rapids features a variety of smart technology, including a 75-inch Sony Bravia Smart TV. Sony’s Android TV and Google Chromecast makes the TV smart by letting you transfer what’s on your phone to the bigger screen.

Think about all that you can enjoy in the comforts of your home:

  • games
  • photos
  • music
  • movies
  • internet apps
  • and more

Chromecast also makes searching easier by letting you simply use your voice.

The Grand Rapids Parade of Homes offers a firsthand look at the newest trends in home design. Bekins and Classic Stereo supplied products in six of the homes featured this fall. Click here to see them all.

The Grand Rapids Home Builders Association sponsors the event which runs from October 6 through October 21. Builders from 41 new homes will display their work to the public three days each week.

  • Wednesdays 5-8pm
  • Fridays 1-8pm
  • Saturdays 1-8pm

One remodeled home opens to the public on October 20 and 21 from 1-8pm. You can find electronics from Classic Stereo in that home.

The Parade of Homes offers quite a variety too. The home values range from $150,000 to over a million dollars. Click here to buy tickets online for only $10. Tickets cost $12 if you buy them at the home. Children 12 and under get in free with a paying adult.

TALK ABOUT VIDEO QUALITY!

The Sony Bravia Smart TV pairs 4K Ultra HD picture quality with the contrast, color and detail of High Dynamic Range.

With four times more pixels, 4K Ultra HD TV’s offer much better clarity to your picture.

High Dynamic Range increases the range of contrast and colors. It makes images appear to have more “depth.”

Add the 120Hz native refresh rate plus Motionflow XR and you can watch fast moving action scenes with virtually no motion blur.

SOUND PROVIDED BY SONOS AND CLASSIC STEREO

Here is a look at some of the Sonos products supplying sound to the home:

LIKE AN ECLIPSE, OLED TVS SHOW “PERFECT BLACK”

Thin OLED TV

Who knew darkness could hurt your eyes? We hope you either used the special glasses or did not look directly at this week’s solar eclipse. If you missed it, we have an easy way to view “perfect black” in our showroom with OLED TVs. It causes much less harm to your eyes and do not require any special glasses.

WHAT IS OLED TV?

It stands for Organic Light-Emitting Diode. What does that mean? In simple terms, most televisions rely on a light from the back or the sides of a television to help emit color.

OLED TVs have diodes that emit their own light. The diodes create three distinct advantages:

 

  • “Perfect Black” – If you have a black object and a colorful object on the screen at the same time, the colorful object will have less affect on the black object. In other TVs, the light needed to create the color would slightly brighten the black object. An OLED TV creates the color black by not emitting any diodes. Since each portion of the screen creates its own light, the black object get less affected by the diodes in other parts of the screen.

 

  • Greater contrast – If the color remains the same, but the black gets darker, that means a greater contrast of color right?

 

  • Can TV’s really get thinner? – Yes! The diodes create the light, which means the TV needs fewer parts. So it can go even thinner than the competition.
