Q: What are the types of TV wall mounts?
The flat mount places the TV as little as one inch away from the wall. There is no angle adjustments as the TV screen’s position is parallel to the wall.
The tilt mount provides a vertical angle adjustment. It compensates for a TV positioned above the ideal viewing level. The tilt mount mechanism allows the TV to be spaced about two and a half inches or more from the wall. A common place for the tilt mounted TV is above a fireplace or on a bedroom wall. A common issue for plasma TVs and some LCDs is the screen reflections which can be eliminated with the angle adjustment of the tilt mounted TV.
A tilt-swivel mount increases the viewing options and is ideal for rooms with more than one usual viewing spot..
Full motion wall mount:
The full motion TV wall mount provides the greatest degree of flexibility in terms of tilt and 360 degree swivel. When the TV is not in use, the arm of the articulating mount folds back.
Ceiling mount: Used primarily for commercial use, but may be used in the home, ceiling mounts work best mounted close to the ceiling or when wall space is limited. Ceiling mounts are found in many restaurants and bars.
Q: What are the benefits of mounting my TV?
In rooms with limited floor or wall space, a TV mount can create more free space.
It enables you to have less furniture in your viewing area.
Make the most of your wall space by utilizing the space above a fireplace in a living room or perhaps above a dresser in a bedroom.
Reduce the risk of your flat-panel LCD or plasma TV from being damaged. Damaged flat screen TV pixels can be difficult to repair. Placing your TV in low, high traffic areas may result in damage from the screen being touched or hit by an object.
Deter theft: A thief will more easily steal a free standing TV than a TV hanging on a wall.
Keep your TV out of the reach of your children or visiting children. No more worrying about an input change, button being pushed, or an inquisitive child climbing on an entertainment centre.
View your TV from different angles without any reduction in picture quality.
Q: How many hours it should take to wall mount my TV?

Q: How to get the best sound quality?
As TVs get slimmer and picture technology gets better, sound quality is suffering. There are many ways to improve your TV’s sound:
Purchasing a sound bar to accommodate your TV – Love great sound, but have limited room for speakers or other equipment? Consider a sound bar. These sleek speakers need minimal space and wiring. And many can be wall-mounted below your TV for a neat, clean install. The beauty of sound bars is their simplicity. Most feature built-in amplification, so you don’t need an external amp. And many use just a single digital cable to connect to your TV.
Install a Stereo Speaker System – Adding a stereo speaker system to your TV is a great way to get engaging sound. They need relatively little wiring, and offer easy speaker placement options. Stereo systems also offer rockin’ music playback. Start with a stereo receiver. Choose a pair of bookshelf speakers to save space, or go with floor-standing speakers for fuller sound. Round out your system with an optional powered subwoofer to beef up the bass.
Powered home theater systems -Powered home theater systems are complete solutions that deliver enveloping surround sound without a lot of bulk. These pre-matched systems include everything you need, including amplification and wiring. Many systems even include wireless surround speakers for stealthy rear effects.

Look for a system that offers built-in Bluetooth for streaming from your smartphone or tablet.
