2. Anker Nebula Astro Portable Projector
At just one size larger than a baseball, the Astro’s extremely convenient portability outperforms its limited 854 × 480 (not HD) resolution. With a 2.5-hour battery, you can broadcast your favorite movies on a 100-inch screen.
3. JBL Bar 9.1 True Wireless Surround with Dolby Atmos
What is television without surround sound? The bar reproduces the enveloping experience of a theater with Dolby Atmos and uses two rechargeable speakers that dock at either end. Put them in the room around the seats for impressive sound or to stream the same song in multiple rooms at the same time.
