Make Entertaining Easy

Let RT Edwards Make Entertaining Easier

Whether you’re moving to a new house and re-evaluating your entertainment system needs, or simply in need of an upgrade to hook into new technologies available then RT Edwards is here to help.

We’ve put together a quick guide to help you to choose the system that best suits your lifestyle.

1. Choosing the best TV screen size for you

Many televisions are too small for the room they’re in which can cause your viewing experience to be poor –  don’t strain your eyes when binge watching!

To make sure you have the right size TV for your space, measure the distance from where you’ll be seated to where the TV will be positioned and write it down e.g. 180cm or around 6 feet. This will be the optimal viewing distance you should be aiming for.

Below, we’ve provided you a table to help. Television screen sizes are measured diagonally and shown in inches. Here in Australia, most of us know centimetres, so we’ve converted the optimal distance to cm to help. Just find a screen size that matches to the distance you wrote down.

Television
Screen Size

Recommended Viewing Distance Recommended Viewing Distance
Full HD TV 4K/UHD TV
24 inches 91-152 cm  
32 inches 121-203 cm  
40 inches 152-254 cm  
43 inches 163-273 cm  
49 inches 186-311 cm 124-186 cm
50 inches   127-190 cm
55 inches   139-209 cm
60 inches   152-228 cm
65 inches   165-247 cm
70 inches   177-266 cm
75 inches   190-285 cm

Keep in mind that you can always move the TV further than the optimal distance, but if you move it closer you may start picking up pixels when viewing.

2. Getting wired for sound

Smart TVs need an up to date sound system to get the best audio experience. If you want to go all out, you can’t go wrong with a Home Theatre System, but if you want a minimalistic look or don’t have a heap of space then Soundbars still pack a punch. Either way you’ll get great quality sound.

3. Watch when you want

If you’re not keen to pay for a subscription TV service and want to record free to air TV, recording devices are a good alternative. PVRs or personal video recorders can allow you to watch one show and depending on the unit record up to three other shows at once! If you’re busy or are working when your favourite shows are on, then it will never miss an episode again. Check out RT Edwards range here.
