Out With the Old

I pulled the trigger on the new tv yesterday. We are now the proud owners of a Samsung 65" 4K UHD. It cost less than 1/2 of what the Sony cost me 11 years ago. We hooked it up in a manner of minutes and were blown away by the quality. Let's hope this one lasts as long if not longer! Who knows. The way technology is advancing we'll all have holographic theaters in our homes by 2028.

What blew me away was the simplicity of the setup. Pretty much everything is hooked up with an HDMI cable. If you looked at the back of the old set there were numerous inputs from HDMI to RCA to optical. I bought my stereo receiver the same day I bought the t.v. so that I could have surround sound, and now it is a dinosaur as well. I don't even know if it had an HDMI input. I achieved surround sound with an optical cable from the cable box. Optical was going to be the wave of the future! I saw that modern receivers have a whole slew of HDMI inputs. I also have a rat's nest of speaker wires running to the 5 speakers plus subwoofer. I bet everything is pretty much wireless now. I suppose I should also get a new DVD player, but heck, the way things are going, DVDs will be as obsolete as laser discs in a few years. I hate to get rid of my DVD player, however, because it's a dual VHS player. I bought it in 2003 when albear and dexter_fox came to ABQ for our very first Furry Thanksgiving. What a weekend to remember!
