Hanging a TV is now more comfortable and private labels provide us a lot of work. We can also find different media and the bases are sometimes the key to understanding and get a striking design and breathtaking in the new TVs. And if we opt for the traditional, furniture, alert to opportunities to play hide or not the TV and even use it as an item separate environments. If you’ve invested a lot into a 65-inch model, why not make it what separates the kitchen from the living room visually?
Five TVs where the design is not fitting
The design and sometimes tastes are not the same for everyone. But even in something as subjective many agree on many occasions. Here you have with which to us are the seven TVs in the design seeks not only the aesthetic purpose but also some specific aspects of care experience with television.
Sony X9000: sound design service
Sony already has a few years leaving the TV market with a very minimalist design where the most striking is the absence of visible framework as such, but above all, an exquisite and thoughtful integration of a system of above-average sound. Already proved to be X9 2013 and repeated again this year mounted bullet 4K/UHD.
The reference model of Sony if you want a well-designed TV is the X9000 a UHD TV with diagonal 55 inches, integrated camera, Triluminos technology and MotionFlow XR 800. The speakers are highlights not only for what they bring to the design, but the improvements they promise. Made of fiberglass, its most characteristic feature-level design is the Magnetic Fluid system that allows a suspension without damping and free of distortion.
In addition, the wedge design is not a whim, looking for more space for the bass, a problem of very thin models TVs. For the pattern of the previous generation, this space has been increased by 50%. As for connections, the design of this TV features a compact port replicator for most cables and connections are hidden from view.
