Now that the New Year is upon us, it's the perfect time to embrace some much-needed upgrades to your home. Don't know where to get started? Installing a new home stereo system is a great way to go. A few upgrades to your system can result in a better listening experience when playing your favorite records, watching a movie or enjoying your favorite podcast. You can make your Wayzata, MN home more fun and efficient by following these tips: SEE MORE: 3 Ways to Bring Bowers & Wilkins’ High-End Speakers Into Your Home Find the Right Speakers A home stereo system lives and dies by its speakers. It's not just about finding high-quality speakers. You also need to make sure that the equipment fits in with the size of your space and how it will be used. For example, in a home theater, you want to focus on power and getting that truly immersive audio out of your favorite movies. In the kitchen, where music is mostly playing in the background, you may want to get in-ceiling speakers that offer even sound coverage while blending into the décor. Adjust Your Speaker Layout A common problem we experience in audio systems is not so much with the quality of the sound, but issues with where it’s coming from and how loud it is. Depending on how you want to use your home stereo system, you need to have the right layout in place for that purpose. In the examples we mentioned above, your home theater and kitchen will benefit from completely different designs. In a theater, you want to have a surround sound setup with speakers in front, behind, to the side, and above the viewer. In your kitchen, you want in-ceiling speakers evenly spread out throughout the room so you get uniform sound no matter where you're standing. Upgrade Your Source Components While it’s easy and logical to blame speakers or AV receivers for bad audio performance, sometimes it has to do more with what you're listening to. You need to make sure that the movies, music or TV shows you're playing are coming from high-quality sources. For video, you want to invest in Blu-rays or streaming services that offer 4K Ultra HD resolution. When it comes to music streaming, use services like Tidal that provide uncompressed files. In a listening room with high-end speakers, the best option is still going with a classic turntable. Incorporate a Smart Control Option Even if your home stereo system has the best audio quality available, it still won’t be much good if it’s not easy to use. Only the biggest of audiophiles have the patience to deal with five different remotes to get their records playing just right. Instead, you can get access to all your entertainment on a smart remote, touchpad, or mobile app. With smart controls, you can access your favorite music quickly, switch audio from one room to another, or group multiple rooms together. Give your entertainment a boost by upgrading your home’s audio. Contact Lelch AV to see how you could improve your system.
