IM­PROVE YOUR SOUND AND SCREEN

Men's Journal - - CAMP SLIPPERS -

While all these pro­jec­tors have builtin speak­ers, for a sound­track that matches the over­size im­ages, you’ll want to con­nect to a home the­ater re­ceiver or sound­bar. (Blue­tooth­ing to a wire­less speaker works in a pinch on some mod­els, but the sound will never be up to snuff.) And be­fore you plop down for movie night, plan on get­ting a proper screen—no, a white wall or bed­sheet won’t work. Many fac­tors, from room size to am­bi­ent light lev­els de­ter­mine what screen to get, but the most ba­sic dif­fer­ence is fixed or pull­down. The for­mer of­fers a more con­sis­tently flat sur­face but robs wall space. Un­less you have a blacked-out home the­ater area, look for screens that are la­beled ALR (am­bi­ent light re­ject­ing).
