Samsung today announced that the 105-inch 4K/Ultra HD it previewed at CES in January is now available for pre-order for $120,000. The largest TV of its kind, the model UN105S9W is built to order and features a curved screen mounted on a metallic frame, which can be removed for wall mounting.
The set’s 5120 x 2160 screen boasts 11 million pixels and features Samsung’s proprietary UHD Dimming and Precision Black processing, which is said to deliver deeper blacks and brighter whites. Other highlights include Quad Screen Multi-Link for displaying four screens at once—including live TV, streaming video and Web content—and a new five-panel version of Samsung’s quad-core-processor-powered Smart Hub platform.
The UN105S9W can be easily upgraded with the latest features using the Samsung UHD Evolution Kit, which is sold separately. The TV sports a wood finish on its back panel and can be wall-mounted using a specialty kit (sold separately).
Owners of the TV receive “Samsung Elite Service,” which includes an in-home visit by Samsung Field Engineers who optimize the TV for the viewing environment and present an overview of its features.

The Home Theater Dream 2
Its another Sunday, your game is on and your prepared. You have your drinks, chips and dip. How could this get any better, well it just did. The install of 4 42″ TV’s and a 138 inch screen projector for one loyal fan. Fixed with Lutron lighting and a 7.1 surround sound, its the perfect home theater for your visual needs. Its even set up with two levels of seats and full motion mounts as to make it as comfortable as possible for anyone watching.
The projector that we installed was the Epson Home Cinema. Epson has outstanding projectors with amazing picture. They also give you so many options that they fit most any budget . Very user friendly and easy to install. An all around good choice for this project.
Just for added measures, we also installed four 42 inch LG TVs to bump up the “shock and awe” factor. Its also nice to be able to watch 5 things at once. The picture quality that you get from the TVs is jaw dropping. The attention to detail that they give you makes the experience that much greater. With the reviews that the TV’s get, i couldn’t think of any other unit that i would have rather put up there. When it was all said and done, It was a good choice.
This home theater was more than just a regular install, it was a piece of art. As corny as that is, it is what people dream of. Its the definition of “Man Cave”. Nothing compares to quality you receive from something like that and even more, the acknowledgement of possessing such a incredible arrangement of devices. In the end, that home theater install is something that i pride myself in and am proud to say i could be apart of it.
Is there such thing as having an invisible speaker with great sound? Not yet. When it comes to speakers, one of the biggest arguments is usually with the interior decorator i.e. the lady of the house in most cases. The look and size of a speaker is what usually gets it all started. With the advances in flush mounted speakers, some of that (but not all) have been resolved. Just like with TV’s, speakers seem to get thinner and smaller which makes them less noticeable. One of the big advances is trim less speakers.
As speakers have become thinner and in some cases smaller it has made them easier to camouflage.
There are companies that make “Invisible speakers” such as Stealth acoustics, Solid Drive and Sound Advance. They are placed within your wall behind a cut out layer of sheet rock fitting the size of your speaker. It must be installed, taped/bedded, textured and painted into your wall, not a very complicated process but may require outside assistance from multiple installers. If your speaker is to be in need of repair, there would be no other way than to cut the wall again and take it out, once again requiring your time and the assistance of multiple professionals. These products are also utilizing materials that are not acoustically designed to be speakers (sheet rock, wood and glass). With flush mounted speakers repairing them is as simple as popping it off and changing out parts or the whole speaker all together. In the end, it just depends on how far you’ll go to hide a few speakers.
