There has never been a better time to look at an LG TV than now, because once again LG has set the benchmark with a new feature called Channel Plus, which gives you an all new way to access content through your TV. Channel Plus takes all of the confusion out of watching content from multiple sources by combining all of them into a single system for a seamless viewing experience. LG has partnered with Xumo to provide more than fifty channels of digital content for their users, featuring content from network stations and streaming channels, and combined this with over-the-air broadcasts. The result is a stress-free interface that makes it easy to watch content from across all sources. Perhaps the best aspect of the new Channel Plus feature is that all this new content is completely free of charge. Thats right, 50+ channels of original programming that won’t cost you a penny in monthly subscription fees.

There’s no better time to buy electronics, especially products for your home theater, than Black Friday. The year’s lowest prices on TVs, audio components, and video game consoles mean that you can put together an impressive entertainment system for under $1000. And this isn’t a collection of leftover no-name electronics—we’re including the latest technology from the best brands in the business.
Getting the best picture and sound for your money
At the heart of any good home theater is a stunning display. We’re going to go with a 50-inch TV, which is a great size for the average family room. This Black Friday weekend (11/24-26), the Samsung UN50KU6300 will drop to just $398. That’s an Ultra HD, HDR-capable Smart TV for less than four hundred bucks, a price that was unheard of even just last year. The KU6300 will play all of the latest content from both physical and streaming sources in 4K UHD resolution, with HDR, which means the picture will have the extra clarity of 4K and contain a dynamic range of tones that a normal TV could never display. This set is probably the bang-for-the-buck TV deal of the year.
The holiday shopping season is now officially underway with the start of Black Friday Week. There’s no need to skip Thanksgiving dinner or get up at 3 a.m. on a cold Friday morning just to try and score one of handful of limited “doorbuster” deals. Instead, enjoy your days off this week and get your shopping done from the comfort of your own home. The Abt Black Friday Week Sale is now underway!
Looking for a great gift for a stressed-out parent or frequent business traveler? Consider a pair of wireless, noise-cancelling headphones. They make a gift that’s both thoughtful and entertaining, letting the recipient enjoy both some much-needed peace and quiet, and stellar audio quality. There are more noise-cancelling wireless headphones on the market than ever before, so we took a closer look at the two most popular models to help you decide which will make the better gift.
The MDR-1000x are the flagship Sony noise-cancelling headphones. Sony packed its most advanced noise-cancelling technology into these over-the-ear cans, which feature 40mm drivers and utilize the company’s proprietary LDAC wireless protocol to effortlessly transmit three times more data than normal Bluetooth Audio. As a result, the MDR-1000x can match the audio quality of a wired source, and are even capable of playing High-Resolution Audio content. Check out the video for more on the Sony MDR-1000x:
If you’ve ever been to our Glenview showroom, you know that things are always changing. We’re always trying to find ways to make the shopping experience easier, more efficient, or more fun whether by adding product-focused boutiques like the Gourmet Shop or one-of-a-kind showrooms like the new Inspiration Studio. Our latest improvement is the new Microsoft gaming room, a space dedicated to Xbox and other Windows-based gaming products.
After a successful turnout earlier this year, the camera trade-in event with National Camera Exchange returns to Abt this weekend. If you’ve got an old film or digital camera, camera lenses, or any other camera gear collecting dust at home, this is a perfect opportunity to get rid of it and earn some cash.
The Nintendo Switch is the company’s first new home video game console since the Wii U
For years, while Sony and Microsoft have focused on crafting consoles with cutting-edge power, Nintendo has opted to emphasize the fun of the gaming experience. Consoles like the Wii and Wii U were more about innovative controls than pure specs, while games like Super Smash Bros excel because of their addictive group gameplay rather than unbeatable graphics capabilities. Their newest announcement, the Nintendo Switch, looks to continue that trend.
It’s no secret that Bowers & Wilkins is one of our favorite brands here at Abt. If you’ve ever visited out showroom, you’ve probably seen our dedicated B&W speaker gallery, or caught part of a movie in the David Abt theater’s 7.4 surround sound B&W speaker system. Their melding of high-performance audio technology and striking visual designs is the kind of philosophy we can get behind. So, of course, we were excited to finally get our hands on the Bowers & Wilkins P9 Signature headphones.
