Bandwidth and Tech Toys Make for Happy Boys

The Evolution of the Man Cave

Man caves were booming in the 2000s. The hashtag #mancave was huge in 2008, but Kurt Pendleton, co-owner and vice president of sales at Tech Savvy of SWFL, says it's time to ditch the name and talk about what the space really is: a room everyone can enjoy.

Kurt elaborates, “The term ‘man cave’ has become less popular in recent years as homeowners and designers have shifted towards open floor plan media rooms. At Tech Savvy, we have taken this to heart and have been able to expand on the new floor plan design and update clients to a completely functional, full-featured media viewing room that the entire family can enjoy.”

Whether you are working from home, binge watching Netflix or gaming, it’s important to have a lot of bandwidth. Upgrading to a dedicated Wi-Fi network has endless benefits, including the ability to support multiple devices simultaneously without sacrificing speed or performance in every corner of the house. It provides increased security, greater flexibility, and control. Tech Savvy can design the perfect system for your space.

Kurt is also excited about the new technology for home theaters like OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) TVs, which offer superior picture quality compared to traditional LED/LCD. Recently 8K resolution has become available, and is very cutting edge. It means sharper, more detailed images. TVs are getting bigger. It’s not uncommon to see 75”-98” TVs in media rooms. Dolby Atmos, an audio format that adds a third dimension to sound, can be placed anywhere in the room, immersing you in the audio experience. And voice control technology is becoming increasingly popular. Another product, Josh AI, is similar to Alexa, but they don’t sell your data or search history to vendors. It may cost a bit more, but it provides better security.

Tech Savvy and its experienced staff has been serving SWFL for four years now. “We have a new approach to meeting the expectations of our clients when it comes to their technology needs. We curate multiple high-class brands to fit the design of today’s systems,” Kurt says.

As the so-called "man cave" continues to evolve, new homes are likely to become even more immersive and engaging than ever before.
