It wouldn’t be CES without manufacturers showcasing some of the nicest TVs in the world. This year, those TVs have a few big focuses: gigantic sizes, curved displays, and 4K. While these sets are often about proving companies’ abilities more than building actual products for consumers to buy, that isn’t entirely the case this year.

Until now, this tech has been aimed primarily at professional installers and dedicated enthusiasts, but the new spec’s focus on user friendliness and lower cost could bring more of us to the whole-house media bandwagon. Finally, surround sound for the bathroom delivered by a single network cable is within our reach.
