Rise of Home Theater Trends 2018 Part I

It doesn’t take a home theater guru to see some of the trends on a rise for entertainment.  The technology we use is increasingly advancing to thinner, sharper, and universal with the touch of a keypad.  The home theater industry is shifting with mobile-friendly technology and it’s ever increasing apps are exciting! So grab some popcorn and sit down.  Let’s explore together some trends that Elite A/V and others project will rise to even greater lengths in 2018.

1. Smart Tv’s/ Streaming

What do we want? Options. When do we want it? Now! Having on-demand television shows and movies with limited to no commercials are heavily desired.  So much so that companies like Netflix are spending millions to produce new content for our home theater enjoyment. In early 2017, Netflix had over 93 million subscribers worldwide, with its international presence driving growth. The latest survey research on video and content trends from the Consumer Technology Association (the consumer electronics industry’s standards and trade organization) finds that, for the first time, the percentage of free or paid streaming video subscribers in the U.S. (68%) has caught up to the number of paid TV subscribers (67%). Further, CTA says it expects streaming subscribers to surpass paid TV services by “a fair margin” within a year or so. We definitely predict binge-watching will continue to rise even more. Competition is in the mix with Disney producing streaming content, Apple is getting in on this, YouTube and ESPN Now are all increasing their home theater streaming content.

Roku, Apple TV, Xbox one and Chrome Cast are some of the most common ways to achieve streaming shows.   Smart TVs are next in line with more options than ever before.  Some smart tv remotes even have a designated Netflix and Hulu button.  The third and a bit old fashion way are connecting a laptop to an HDMI cord directly to the TV.

2. Live Interaction with Social Networking

Live, live, live, we want it live! Social media trends are pushing live video and by extension streaming services such as Netflix and Apple tv cater to the live movement with apps like Facebook Live. Social media live tweets and interaction with real-time television are skyrocketing as a trend.  Have you voted on one of the live shows using social media?  Manufacturers are currently working on ways to integrate live posts, reviews, and video chatting in with watching your favorite shows. We can see this going to where no tweet has gone before in the future!

3. Voice Activation/ Integration


Remotes, interfaces, consoles, and more are featuring ways to use voice command over a keyboard.  We sure have come a long way since the mobile phone with one key that you tap multiple times to get the letter you desire to type. LOL This trend of smart homes and voice activation will grow exponentially.  Alexa paired with Control 4 is one of our favorites with home theaters integrated with functions such as lights, blinds, and camera systems. A recent prediction suggests that “50% of all searches will be voice searches by 2020” according to ComScore.  No doubt the voice command feature will continue to jump leaps and bounds this year.

4. Virtual Reality

Not to be confused with reality tv, this growing trend is sweeping the consumer electronic scene.  VR is capping on another dimension literally you are transported to another place with audio headphones and goggles in 4k with 360-degree views.  Can you imagine watching a movie where you can see that dinosaur coming at you by turning around and facing the beast yourself! That will increase entertainment to another level.  Some, however, are concerned with a decrease in intimacy watching a movie with their family.  Only time will tell how engaged a majority of consumers will become.  In the meantime, we do not see the number of products and content curation for these VR devices slowing down.

5. Wireless Entertainment

Who likes a bunch of eye sore wires laying around? Although one of our specialties here at Elite A/V is hiding wires we predict more and more technology will rise with Bluetooth or Sonos integration eliminating wires altogether. In addition to speakers, many Smart TVs also let you wirelessly push content from your smartphone, tablet or laptop, to your big screen.

Smart Home Options That Save Money.

When you think of home automation does the sound “cha-ching” play over in your mind?  For many it does.  However, what some do not know is the smart home options that can save you thousands.  Let’s explore some of the ways to make a smart home more valuable than just convenience purposes.

Water Damage Control

Leaks happen, although when resolved right away the damage is minimal.  Let’s say though that you are out of town for the weekend only to come home to a completely flooded and ruined home. As a smart homeowner, that’s where home automation options could have saved you such a devastating scenario.   Today’s technology allows for the option of sensors that detect leaks.  Receive a notification right from your device letting you know where the leak started i.e. water heater, under the sink, in the attic.  Additional equipment is set up on the main water line and can shut off the water with a touch of a button, right from your phone. Think about the peace of mind that comes with this feature. Not to mention you could potentially save thousands of dollars and the devastation of a water leak.

In contrast, this feature can remotely protect a vacation home by turning on the water to run through the pipes once in a while. This will help prevent corrosion and a dried up water line that allows for cracks and leaks to occur in plumbing. Really when it comes to water damage and prevention smart home devices are a wise and valuable investment.

Save on Your Electric Bill

Think of the dozens of machines and electronics in your home.  As technology advances so do the gadgets and energy for each device.  Each of these electronics, even in standby mode result in a higher energy consumption.  Smart home energy meters, installed in an electricity box can help you in this regard.  The data that you collect can help you analyze where the energy consumption is coming from. It reports energy use back to you in real time so you can see how much electricity you really use and when you use it. Additionally, you can be more prepared when you go to purchase other types of smart home money saving options.

Next, evaluate your crawlspaces, attic, and all windows and doors for ways to improve your insulation.  30% of air-conditioning and heat can escape if your home is allowing leaks. Once you have established a good insulation system, you can invest in a programmable thermostat.  Create and manage your home’s thermostat on the go. You can store multiple daily settings but override if need be without messing up the future programmed temperatures.

Other options for saving money can include connecting solar panels to appliances and having them run at times that are most effective.  You can regulate electricity by automatically shutting off the lights inside at night instead of accidentally leaving them on.

Moreover, lighting can be a downfall in many homes.  You can reduce your costs with motion sensor lighting.  It doubles as a luxury for your guests that do not know their way around as well as the convenience of carrying a heavy load of laundry without fidgeting for the light switch.  Once you have left the room the lights will automatically turn themselves off.  Amazing right!? This may have you wondering why you haven’t invested in this upgrade sooner.  This smart home feature is also aware of daylight hours.  Yes, these sensors are smarter than a 5th grader or perhaps more diligent than your kiddos when turning off the lights.

Save You Money by Deterring Burglars.

Your home and its contents are an asset that should be protected.  There are many smart home options when it comes to safety and security.  Check out this blog all on those options.

Tailor Smart Home Options to Your Needs.

In conclusion, as you may have noted an energy-efficient home paired with smart home sensors can save you money.  You may want to start with the basics and make larger investments (like solar technology) in the future.  Over time these small changes in your home can put money back in your pocket.  Not to mention the peaceful trips away from home while still monitoring the action.  Each family’s need is a little different.  Elite A/V has trained and honest professionals that can assist you in what you need to get started on this smart home journey.  We serve the local Las Vegas, Summerlin, and Henderson areas in Nevada.  Call today for a free consultation to learn what is right for you and save money for years to come.

Enhance Your Home Decor With Your Television.

The Evolution of Television Styles

Let’s go back in time for a moment and reminisce on how heavy and thick television sets were in the 50’s.  Surely, these clunkers were an eyesore. At the time, no one cared, if you owned a tv you were doing good.  Fast forward to our advanced day and age, it is the norm in every household to have a flat screen tv. Additionally, most tv’s are mounted right on the wall.  They look very sleek and barely take up any space.

However, even though we have come a long way, let’s face it, a big black screen is not exactly art on the wall.  Most women would love to have a hideaway tv. Hiding cords and electronics would be a miracle. So, what options are available to enhance home décor with a television?


Add Art to Your Home theater or Living Space

A fantastic way to conceal your flat panel or projection screen is to literally cover it with art and add a beautiful frame around it.  A company called ArtScreen has mastered this idea and it fits within our standard of classy and unique. Framing your tv is a great home decor enhancement. Here’s how it works. A frame is surrounding your television with a canvas of your choice of art displayed in front of your tv. When you are ready to watch tv, a silent motor screen retraction rolls the canvas up inside of the frame and booyah you have a home theater system.

Design your TV Frame to Enhance Your Home Decor

The process is simple, purchase a tv if you don’t already own one. Followed by selecting your art.  This art could be your own if it is good enough quality or you could choose from ArtScreen’s selected designer art with over 1,200 options of styles and colors. Next, select a frame to your liking. We personally love the modern frame for a television choice.  If you ever visit our showroom in Las Vegas you would know Elite A/V preferred style is modern!


Finally, after you have chosen all the components to your artwork, a professional home theater installation company installs your framed art and conceals all of your wires.  That is where Elite A/V steps in, our company serves Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas, Summerlin, and the greater Las Vegas Area.We specialize in Home Theaters, HDTV Set-ups, Multi-room Audio Systems, Universal Control Systems, Lighting & Shade Control, Networking and Wireless Solutions.  We would love to help you learn more about framing your tv and all the amazing options out there.

Additional Thoughts For Your Screen:

ArtScreen can work with a recessed or surface mounted television.  However, a very important factor to consider is the quality of your tv screen. As audio video professionals, quality comes first in our opinion.  Additional money can then enhance your home decor.  Quality of a screen makes the world of a difference to your enjoyment of a movie.  The light that reflects off of a projector or screen can be faded and blurry if not chosen correctly. We want to ensure the quality of your home theater system by helping you understand your options.  Here are two great articles on our website to read: One is HDR and the other is 4K.


Feel free to email or call us to schedule a consultation with one of our professionals. We would be happy to email you all the options of frames and art choices.

RIVA FESTIVAL The Mother of a Multi-room Wireless Speaker

The last article featured RIVA ARENA, the more compact version of the wireless speaker from the RIVA Wand Series. This article will highlight RIVA FESTIVAL a larger and more dynamic version in this series.

 The Quality of Design is Remarkable for Such a Small Speaker.

First and foremost, this bad boy is upgraded with an elegant wood enclosure surrounding three woofers, three tweeters, and 4 passive radiators. Can you believe all that fits in 14 x 7-inch speaker?  This design reproduces more of the musical spectrum than any comparable product currently on the market. That’s impressive!

The RIVA Difference!

The FESTIVAL audio design utilizes high-performance acoustic components to deliver an audio quality that truly reciprocates live audio.  Additionally, their patented 3-channel audio technology Trillium™ captures stereo imagining in the finest and most sought after way.

You may wonder, what is stereo imaging? Imaging refers to the aspect of sound recording and reproduction.  When sound is recorded in a professional studio, the placement of instruments, artist, and microphone in the sound booth make all the difference.  RIVA speakers are designed to highlight those unique locations and depth.  Moreover, an image (placement of sound) is considered to be good if the location of the performers can be clearly located. On the other hand, the image is considered to be poor if the location of the performers is difficult to locate.

Stereo and Ambisonic Recordings

According to one reference, a well-made stereo recording, properly reproduced, can provide good imaging within the front quadrant; a well-made Ambisonic recording, properly reproduced, can offer good imaging all around the listener and even including height information.

Envision you are sitting in a room with a band behind you and the artist in front of you. It’s as though music is 3D, that is the type of amazing quality you can expect from these wireless speakers.  Immersive sound with deep, powerful bass is key to a pleasing experience.

Other Specs:

With a whopping 200 watts of power, this wireless speaker can charge your tablet or phone with its’ USB port.  Endless hours of fun with connectivity options including Wi-Fi, DLNA, DDMS, AirPlay, and Bluetooth. Stream unlimited audio content through Chromecast built-in and Spotify® Connect. FESTIVAL supports high-resolution audio up to 24-bit/192kHz so you don’t miss any detail.

Why Elite A/V backs up This Brand

All things considered, As of 2017, RIVA Audio has received some of the highest awards in the world of high-performance wireless audio. No doubt, we had to jump on board with such a high standard of sound.  It’s no wonder our customers in Las Vegas love this product.  See for yourself in person how powerful a compact wireless speaker can be!  When given the choice, choose professional options over consumer products out there.

Let us help! Call today 702.997.4108 to visit our fully remodeled show rooms to gain home theater inspiration.  The speaker choices will surely impress any listener.

RIVA ARENA – Wireless Speakers that Pack a Punch!

The lives we live are fast-paced. Having a speaker to take on the go reaps great benefits.  For this reason,  there is much to consider when purchasing a compact speaker to fit the role of many jobs. We are happy to boast about these remarkable little wireless speakers that are packed with innovative technology.  First, let’s take a journey in time back to the early 70’s to see why these speakers exist.

The Roots of RIVA

The founder is regarded as a true “Golden Ears” throughout the music industry with a deep passion for delivering the real truth and joy of music. Beginning his career in the UK, Rikki Farr, was in the heart of the music industry.  He hosted the infamous 1970 Isle of Wight, which was said at the time to be one of the largest human gatherings in the world. With estimates of over 650,000, this event surpassed the attendance at Woodstock. The line-up featured some incredible artists such as The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis and The Doors.  Ricky later developed a touring company and produced 4,700 shows with leading artists Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Rod Stewart, Tom Petty, Bob Marley, Bob Seger, Guns N Roses, Nirvana, and much, much more.

In addition, Ricky is no stranger to live music. His experience drove the passion to create the “Riva philosophy”.   The philosophy basically is to design and produce speakers and technology that can reproduce music and sound so pure you can hear the future.

Why Elite A/V Recommends this Wireless Speaker

As of 2017, RIVA Audio has received some of the highest awards in the world of high-performance wireless audio. Of course, we had to jump on board with such a high standard of sound.  So what are the specs of this roaring lion packed in a little body?

This two part article will feature our favorite two wireless speakers: RIVA ARENA and RIVA FESTIVAL Let us see which one is right for you.

The Small but Powerful RIVA ARENA

Arena speaker on kitchen counter

A compact multi-room wireless speaker that delivers stereophonic sound. What exactly is stereophonic? It is a sound reproduction using two or more separate channels (Arena having 3)to capture the dimensions of a performance. The depth is separated into the performer and their acoustic surroundings. This elevates your experience and allows your ears to resonate with a realistic sound of a live concert.

Pretty incredible huh? Not to mention lightly, the speaker doubles as a USB charger and is equipped with Spotify connect and Chromecast built-in for unlimited streaming capabilities.

Designed and Engineered from the Inside Out.

  • 50 watts of power
  • The Arena connects with Wifi or with Bluetooth, Airplay, DDMS, and DLNA.
  • It supports High-resolution audio up to 24-bit/ 192kHz
  • Play all of your favorite audio hassle free, from any source and anywhere you want. No Wi-Fi required!
  • Optional battery pack allows 20+ hours before recharging.

All things considered, this speaker from the wand series of Riva audio is an exceptional choice if a compact speaker is a huge asset you want to have.  If size isn’t the most concerning feature, you may like the RIVA FESTIVAL. Keep a look out for the next article.

Martin Logan’s Speakers

Martin Logan is sweeping the speaker design nation with elegant modern and unique looking high fidelity speakers.  They sound fantastic and they rock in the home décor department.  So what’s with the panels and how do they work? Let’s take a deeper look at the technology behind the static electro panels and become mad scientists together.

Electro Static Panels

The Martin Logan speakers have an innovative curved translucent panel that is equipped with an electrostatic transducer.  We have all experienced static electricity before.  You know, when the hairs on your head go straight up and float around in mid space.  Yeah, that kind of static.  If you can’t recall I’m giving you a reference of this cute kid.


Moving on.  So What is Electrostatic?

It has to do with the movement of positive and negative electricity through a conductor. Take a look at this diagram below.  An electrostatic transducer has three basic components- stators, a diaphragm, and spars (non-conductive spacers) – assembled as a sandwich.  The diaphragm is made out of a ultra-light plastic film, infused with an electrically conductive material and stretched taut between the two stators, which are perforated steel sheets coated with an insulator.

When the speaker is operating the diaphragm is being charged with a fixed positive voltage from the power supply and the stators charging one negative and the other charging positive from the amplifier through a transformer.As the magic of electrons grow, like charges repel and opposite charges attract, the diaphragm’s positive charge will force it to move forward or backward depending on the stator charges.

This is how an electrostatic transducer translates an electrical audio signal into diaphragm motion to produce sound waves in the room.  Whew!  It can be tricky to understand.  Hopefully, I haven’t lost you yet.

To help stiffen the panel (it’s very important that only the diaphragm move) and to prevent the diaphragm from ever coming too close to a statornon-conductive strips called spars are placed width wise at intervals along each stator’s length.

What are the Advantages of Electrostatic vs. the Conventional Loudspeaker?

The drivers in a conventional loudspeaker have diaphragms attached to coils of wire, called voice coils. See diagram below. Current from an amplifier flows through these coils, creating a fluctuating electromagnetic field that interacts with the field of a fixed permanent magnet to cause diaphragm motion, and thus sound. The diaphragm has very little movement and needs to be 100% rigid.  If the diaphragm flexes or bends at all, the result typically causes distortion of some kind and an uneven response.  Tweeter diaphragms especially need to be light to be light and precise. It is nearly impossible with real materials and this design to make the sound flawless.

In comparison, the electrostatic diaphragm is light as it needs to be, flexible and driven uniformly over its entire surface.  In fact, the diaphragm (ultra light plastic) is so weightless that the air it moves is heavier than the diaphragm itself.  hat, together with the transducer’s distortion-canceling push-pull mode of operation, enables the diaphragm to trace even the most delicate sonic details with absolute precision. Martin Logan clearly has a unique twist on conventional audio technology.


Furthermore, controlled dispersion is a key factor in making this product outstanding. As a home theater guru, you want the sound waves rippling out toward the sides of the transducer to meet at the speaker’s edge and cancel. Conventional loudspeakers generally, minimizes side-wall reflections that tend to muddle sonic detail and stereo imaging. While the reduction in output to the sides contributes to the astonishing clarity for which electro stats are revered, the energy reflected off the wall behind the speaker opens up and deepens the sound.

A Company that will deliver.

All and all, these bad boys are a force to be reckoned with. Our company Elite A/V LLC loves being able to offer such a killer high-quality speaker installation coupled with an understanding of the product and why it is so valuable for your home.  As we like to break down the driving technology, understanding all of this is not required for you to enjoy the sound!

HDR is the Future of TV.

HDR What is it?

In light of all the latest craze in the television market, the acronym HDR keeps popping up.  What is it? What does it stand for? HDR means High Definition Range.  It stems from a term in photography.  As the human eye interprets vivid color in multiple layers the camera, however, lacks justice in capturing all the nuances of the scene. An SDR Standard Definition Range is most common in home theaters.

In comparison, High Definition Range refers to a technique that heightens a picture’s dynamic range – the contrast between the brightest whites and the darkest blacks. The approach is that the higher the dynamic range, the more a picture resembles a real life view.

Think about a time when you saw a spectacular sunset. Now consider the layers of glowing fiery red, orange and pink pastel colors enhanced by bright white clouds in the forefront.  In this scene painted for you, there should be distinguishable degrees of brightness. However, on the TV the layers look flat and dull with white levels smashed and layers that are virtually impossible to tell apart. There are multiple reasons for this.

Why the need for HDR?

The first reason is your TV’s limited dynamic range, it is not capable of reliving the real view picture in the finest differences in brightness.

In addition, the video you are watching has gone through multiple stages of processing and converting data to match what your Television is capable of. This ultimately takes away the quality in its end result.

In recent breakthroughs, TVs are much more capable. When our Elite A/V team attended the CES 2017 (consumer electronics show) we were in awe at the levels of brightness in newer TVs. Check out this video out we shot there!

A normal TV puts out around 100-300nits of brightness whereas an HDR TV is working on the capability of 10,000nits.   It’s not just sheer brightness we are after.  Too bright and it can be blinding.  The combination of luminance, color gamut, and color range all have to co-exist to give you the darkest dark to the whitest white on the screen.

Modern LED screens appear dim and dark blacks look gray because of their pixels being backlit. When you glance at a screen with the milky way you want the richest black color you can get to enhance the brightness of the stars and their glow.

At Elite A/V LLC, we all consider ourselves quality television lovers.  We want your upgraded home theater installation in Las Vegas to be the most knowledgeable choice you make this year.   HDR is the future of home theaters. Let us Hang a TV for you today that will allow you and your family to experience endless enjoyment for years to come.
