The Quest For The Best Home Speakers: What Should You Look For?

Filed under: AV Tip of the Month — Tags: , , — Alan @ 2:53 pm

Silverwood Theater with The Best Home Speakers Small speakers are best suited to smaller rooms; large open rooms and “great rooms” will need much larger speakers to recreate music at natural, loud, undistorted listening levels.

However, in a phrase, the best home speakers are those that “disappear” into the music. In effect they deliver the truest high fidelity to all instruments and vocals so that they are like an open window into the music, neither exaggerating nor diminishing any part of the musical range we all hear. Singers should sound as if they’re in the room. Vocals shouldn’t be harsh or piercing; they should be smooth and natural.

Outdoor Speakers: Two Factors That Make a Difference

Wherever you are, just stop and listen for a moment. Be alert to all the sounds you’re hearing. If you’re outside in a city, or in the country, there’ll likely be a multitude of sounds impinging on your ears from every direction. Even if you’re in an office, you’ll notice the familiar ambient sounds—the background whir of the air-circulation system, the tapping of keys on computer keyboards, distant muffled city sounds (unless the windows are open), and so on.

The Fallacy of “Wireless” Speakers

Filed under: AV Tip of the Month — Tags: — Alan @ 5:09 pm

Virtually all but perhaps the most tech-obsessive geeks (and I count myself among that group) hate the hassle of wiring up a 5.1-channel (or 7.1-channel) home theater system—stringing those speaker cables under rugs or along the walls to each of five different speakers and a subwoofer, or “fishing” them through the walls to an outlet where the speaker is located. Consequently, the audio-video panacea of so-called “wireless” speaker systems holds enormous appeal, and various manufacturers have rushed in to fill the void.

Articles online and in audio-video magazines as well as ads have been positively gushing over the wonders of “wireless” speakers.
