With some of the biggest shows coming to streaming services later this year, it's a good idea to invest in a big-screen TV or even a projector so you can lie in bed and watch a movie shown on your ceiling. On top of getting the best screen quality, you'll also want the best sound to really enhance the experience. So whether you're planning to Netflix and chill, or watch the latest Marvel superhero movies on Disney+, here are our picks.
Hisense ULED X Mini-LED TV
The Hisense ULED X Mini-LED TV (or UX for short) is a terrific television set that offers a great viewing experience. The picture quality is excellent with blacks that are OLED-like, but at the same time, the UX gets really bright. The built-in speakers, which include upward-firing ones, are better than most TV speakers (and even cheap soundbars). Most Hisense TVs are focused on value, but the UX is a top-tier no-expense-spared model that holds its own against other premium TVs.
Samsung S95C OLED TV
After the spectacular debut of its Samsung S95B QD-OLED TV last year, Samsung is filling out its lineup this year. The South Korean electronics giant now sells two QD-OLED TV models with the S95C being the higher end of the two (the S90C appears to be identical as the older S95B, but with updated software). If you can afford it, the S95C is definitely worth its price tag (starts from S$3,599 for the 55-inch model), with outstanding visuals, and a sleek premium design
Creative Sound Blaster Katana SE
Despite its small frame, the Creative Sound Blaster Katana SE packs quite the punch. While you can use it for gaming audio for your PC, it also works with your TV for Netflix shows. Of course, you can also use it for console gaming. Sound is clear and crisp, and the Katana SE can do Super X-Fi to your headphones. There's no subwoofer, so you can easily find a spot to set it all up.
The Sonos Arc is the flagship soundbar from the audio firm best known for its multiroom wireless speakers. It's a significant step-up from the compact, mid-range Sonos Beam (Gen 2), while offering the same smart features (Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa), and expansion options (for a Sonos-based home theatre system) in a larger, more premium package.
Apple TV 4K
Sporting a faster A15 Bionic chip, and a smaller profile, the Apple TV 4K (2022) is also cheaper than before. It's rare that Apple cuts prices of its existing products, and the new Apple TV now goes for just S$199. And if you want more storage and an Ethernet port, it's just S$239 (128GB), down from last year's S$299 for the 64GB version. In short, this one confirm can buy.
