Got a Sunday afternoon handy? Want to kick back and play your favourite video games in style? Here’s all the epic gear you need to make an awesome den packed with incredible tech.
To project the perfect picture onto your wall you’ve got to take a look at the Optoma HD50. It’s pricey, but it’s the perfect match for all your gaming and media consumption needs. The projector boasts incredible picture clarity thanks to its 1080p resolution. Your favourite titles will never have looked better. The projector gets really bright and produces vibrant colours with a great contrast ratio. It’s got multiple HDMI ports - plenty for all your gear, and won’t take up too much space - the unit is just 286 mm wide and 124 mm high. A must have for any gaming fanatic.
High-End Gaming TV
No space on the wall? No worries. If projectors aren’t your thing, then pick up a neat HD television to cater for all your gaming needs. There are plenty of options, Samsung’s JU7500 or LG’s EG9600 are both great models that are built for gaming. Sets like these have super high refresh rates so the blur is virtually non-existent!
Once you’ve picked up the perfect display, you’ve got to sort your sound out. The Q Acoustics Media 4 Soundbar comes with a built-in subwoofer, giving you great, bassy sound as you shoot, brawl or battle your way to victory. Soundbars give gamers great sound wherever they've positioned themselves in the room. This is thanks to their impressive sound dispersion. A soundbar is certainly the perfect pickup for your ultimate gaming den.
After you’ve got the basics together, you need something to play. Gamers, look no further than the latest in next-generation gaming - Microsoft Xbox One and Sony’s Playstation 4. Both consoles boast the greatest selection of impressive and engaging single and multiplayer titles. Sports fans are likely to jump on EA Sports’ FIFA 16 while FPS fanatics might fancy Call of Duty: Black Ops III.
Nobody wants any lag when they’re in the middle of a war zone or through on goal. So, be sure to get yourself a formidable wireless gaming router like the Linksys WRT1900AC. You needn’t worry about your connection dropping as this model has four antennas and a hefty 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. This will provide your den with unparalleled WiFi coverage. Neat.
Finally, to keep the clutter away from your den, you’re going to need some form of cable management. All your cool new tech can be hooked up to something like the Bluelounge CableBox, which can hide all your loose cords and cables. This makes your ultimate gaming den look clean and sophisticated. The box is even made of high-density flame-retardant plastic. Meaning that, no matter how much tech you’ve got plugged in, you won’t have to worry about burning the house down!
Now we’ve given you the lowdown on what tech to include, the only thing that remains is for you to find the time and money to build your ultimate gaming den.
