Get Your Home World Cup Ready!

Traditionally, the conclusion of the Champion’s League final means that it’s time to find a new hobby for the summer months, but not this year thanks to the World Cup which will tide us over for a few wonderful weeks. Coincidentally, this is a great excuse to upgrade your TV and home entertainment set up.

A top of the line living room set up is the best way to enjoy the World Cup from Brazil without shelling out for flights, accommodation, match tickets and necessities while you’re there. The perfect set up lets you feel like you’re close to the action and revel in the drama, the ecstasy and the crushing disappointment as teams are whittled down to the final two.

According to Audio Visual Product and Marketing Manager at Harvey Norman, Cathal McGee, “Size matters when it comes to the World Cup – it’s all about those big widescreen TVs. We are seeing a trend towards Smart TVs with social media integration, these allow users to both watch the match and join in on the conversation online at the same time. UHD and Curved OLED technology TVs are on the higher end of the price scale but really provide viewers with that immersive stadium experience.”

With that in mind, here are some recommendations that will help your living room set up compete with the world’s best.

LG LAP340 Sound Plate

Not only will there be beautiful football on display from Brazil, but the setting is sure to provide a lively and festive atmosphere. The LAP340 Sound Plate from LG will allow you to truly experience the sounds of the World Cup and its participating nations. While the sound plate is capable of producing deep and rich sounds, it’s uses ultra slim built-in dual subwoofers to maintain a sleek profile.

Sony 55-inch Smart LED TV (KDL55W815BSU)

What better way to experience the 2014 FIFA World Cup than with the official TV of the World Cup? If you’re wondering why there’s an official TV for the event, it may be because this goes beyond allowing you to watch the action. Sound settings can be adjusted with Live Football Mode so that they’re closer to an authentic stadium experience, while the Smart features and sleek interface allow you to keep up with the news and highlights from a number of sources.

Mayfair Leather Recliner Chair

There are long days of intense matches ahead, so settle in and get comfortable. The Mayfair Leather Recliner Chair’s seat is supported with noosag spring and high density foam, while the back cushion is fibre filled for extra comfort. If you get quite excited when matches are on, you’ll be glad to hear that it’s constructed using hardwood for extra rigidity and reliability. If you’re going to be joined by others, the Mayfair is also available as a three seater sofa with two recliners and a two seater sofa with two recliners.

In Short: If you’re looking to upgrade your living room set up in time for the 2014 World Cup, we have a few recommendations you might find useful.
