How to buy TVs and entertainment systems with Bitcoin + other crypto

Assembling a home entertainment system is part art and part science. The components and accessories you purchase may vary based on your available space, but you’ll also want to take your personal preferences into account. Maybe you’re a sports nut who wants to see every blade of grass on the field in perfect clarity. Or, maybe you’re an action movie junkie who wants to feel the rumble from every explosion like you were there. Whatever your goal, there are many options for piecing together your perfect setup and paying for it with crypto.
