With UHD (wrongly called #4k ) displays on the horizon, an increased color gamut is one area where new #UHD   displays have the potential to really shine.  Are quantum dots a real technology breakthrough or just a passing fad.  Check out my overview of Quantum Dot display technology for all the details.

Quantum dots are tiny phosphorescent crystals that glow when hit with light that allow LED displays to render colors more accurately with better brightness and purity.

For less than $1,000 speaker you get solid build quality, nice aesthetics, great dynamics, timbre, an expansive soundstage, chest-pounding bass, and more.  These speakers give you a real foretaste of some of the best aspects of expensive, high-end speakers for (comparatively speaking) a ridiculously low price.
