TV Like You've Never Seen it ... The Frame!


 

Televisions have evolved to a pretty high level when it comes to picture quality, some invariably better than others. That's, of course, while your actually watching it. But what all TV's have in common is what they look like when you're not. A big black rectangle ... sometimes dominating a room with it's dark foreboding presence. 


Finally someone has changed that ... enter the new Samsung Frame TV. When turned on, the Frame is a high performance 4K UHD television with stunning picture quality. But what really sets it apart is what it looks like when you're not watching TV. The Frame transforms itself into a beautiful piece of artwork, virtually indistinguishable from any framed picture or painting other than the fact that you can change the artwork with a couple of simple button presses.

It starts with a zero-clearance wall mount that hugs the slim LED TV to the wall. Then you trim it with your choice of three available wood frames. Finally you select from dozens of built pieces of artwork or, if you wish, your own custom artwork that can be uploaded into the TV's memory. You can also subscribe to online artwork for a nearly endless selection of pieces. And you can choose from a broad array of matting styles to set off your selected art just the way you like it. 

This is television with class and style, not just a few hours a day, but all day, every day. Stop by Sound Advice and see the new Frame for yourself. Like us, you will be amazed



Another Klipsch Classic Reborn

 Forte III

 


In the late eighties, Klipsch introduced what would become their most successful loudspeaker ever, the Forte. At the time, the Forte offered the classic Klipsch signature of huge dynamic range combined with improved linearity and imaging.

​Fast forward thirty years and welcome one of the most exciting new loudspeakers we've had the pleasure to offer, the brand new Forte series III. Believe us when we say, this is not just minor facelift on an old friend.

The all new Forte III features all new drivers and crossover, top to bottom. While sharing the basic design and configuration of it's esteemed predecessor, the Forte III used pure titanium for both the midrange and tweeter. The midrange driver sports a patented new horn that offers improved accuracy and smoothness while precisely controlling dispersion into the listening space.

​The powerful 12" woofer is complemented by a huge 15" rear mounted passive radiator. The combination provides stunning bass impact and tactile agility. All this is housed in a beautiful retro-style enclosure finished in book-matched walnut and topped-off with a natural linen grille cloth.

​If you long to experience music, not just hear it, but feel it with all of the emotion the artist intended, you'll want to check out the new Forte III's. 

​Martin Logan Raises the Bar

 Electromotion ESL-X



It's been 34 years since Martin Logan developed the first hybrid electrostatic loudspeaker and they have been refining and perfecting the art and science ever since. When we heard the last generation of Martin Logan "stats" we were simply awestruck with the musicality and transparency that these loudspeakers portrayed. The electrostatic "bug" had bit and bit hard. Starting at about $2500 per pair, the ML hybrid stats aren't for everyone, and they're not "cheap" in any way. Having said that, the value of these speakers is simply off the charts. Martin Logan's entry level speakers do many things that $10,000 speakers simply cannot match. It's truly amazing

​Enter the new ESL-X. This brand new design represents a step-up in size and performance over it's smaller brother, the ESL. With refinements in the the already phenomenal electrostatic panel design and a larger panel to boot, the ESL-X also adds a newly designed dual-woofer bass section. This unique ​asymetrical dual woofer system improves the way low-frequencies launch into the listening room, making the speaker less placement sensitive.

​The rest of the magic happens in the vital crossover network. Named for Martin Logan's chief elecrtronics engineer, the Vojtko crossover

network ​provides a truely seemless transistion from the dynamic bass section to the electrostatic panel. As with the driver elements, the Vojtko crossover is comprised of premium grade components throughout.

One look at the photo to the right tells you how unique and elegant is ​the design of this remarkable loudspeaker. But as graceful and artistic this speaker looks, it's the sound that truely stands out. The Martin Logan ESL-X will connect you to music in a way you might not have thought possible. You will hear every subtle nuience with such breathtaking clarity and naturalness that goosebumps are a common side effect.

We invite you to bring in your favorite recordings and audition a pair of Martin Logans for yourself. But be warned. If you love music, you will be hooked and there is only one cure ... a pair of electromotions for your own!

    5th Generation OLED... 4K - Ultra High Definition

Just arrived is LG's newest 65" OLED TV, the model 65C7P. Typical of OLED, the 65C7P features the same incredibly rich, dimensional picture thanks to the unique properties of organic light emitting diodes.  Because they are self emissive pixels and not back-lit, OLED's produce perfect and absolute black, the critical foundation to all video displays. The result is depth of image and color that no conventional LED/LCD TV can match. 

Another benefit to OLED is that its' stunning picture quality remains intact as you move off axis. Now everyone can enjoy the same gorgeous picture no matter where they are seated. 

Now in its' 5th Generation, this new OLED uses a 4K (UHD) panel, and new video processor, which when combined with OLED's wider color pallet and incredible contrast, provides a picture that is quite simply beyond reproach. This is true reference level performance!

All LG OLED TV's are fully compatible with all formats of HDR or High Dynamic Range. HDR along with the wider color pallet, is a vital part of the new Ultra-High Definition system. Combined with 4k resolution, HDR brings you dramatically closer to reality. No more washed-out highlights and muddled shadows. With LG's new panel ( 25% brighter than last year ), you will see exactly what the content producer intended.

This exciting new technology is available exclusively at Sound Advice, where we are all about performance ... check it out today!

​We just received the new "Planet Earth - II" UHD Bluray. You simply have to stop by
​and see this disc, shot and mastered in true 4K, on the LG OLED. It will change the
​way you look at television forever ... simply stunning!!
