5 Must-Have Components for Your Home Audio System

Home Audio ComponentsLelch Audio Video Lets You Enjoy Your Favorite Music like Never Before

Are you ready to experience music the way it was meant to be heard? Imagine access to your favorite songs from anywhere in your home, without having to deal with the inconvenience and diminished quality that comes with using headphones. You can do it with a home audio system that allows you to listen to your favorite artists no matter where you are in your Wayzata, Minnesota home. The experts at Lelch Audio Video help you build the perfect system by taking the following components into account: SEE MORE: What Are the Benefits of a Professional Sound System Installation? 1. Speakers With years of experience and partnerships with top brands like Paradigm and Sonance, we can find the right speaker to match your needs. Go with floor standing or bookshelf speakers in your dedicated entertainment rooms. For more discreet applications, opt for in-ceiling and in-wall fixtures that disappear into your home's unique décor. If your project is a retrofit job and you're wary of extra wiring, we can also offer a SONOS wireless solution. 2. Subwoofers If you go with a wireless or custom speaker (in-wall or in-ceiling) installation, your home audio system may lose some of its bass capabilities. This is where a subwoofer comes in. A subwoofer is a low-frequency speaker cabinet with its own amplifier that adds to your audio’s depth by providing the lowest bass frequencies. 3. Receiver Your receiver serves as your system’s messenger, amplifying the sound from your source components and sending it to your loudspeakers. For a whole home audio system, you want one with multiple input and output options. This way you can have a variety of sources linked to the same receiver and be able to amplify those sound signals to various locations. We personally recommend a Denon or Marantz receiver with multi-room and wireless capabilities. 4. Matrix Switcher A switcher serves a similar purpose, except it can reroute sound to as many as 32 different locations and can also carry video signals. There could be a small dip in the audio quality, however, so receivers may still preferable in smaller systems, dedicated listening rooms or theaters. 5. Source Components It’s important to know which sources you want to use in your system when setting it up. Most AV receivers and matrix switchers can play music from an MP3 player, media library or CD player. However, if you want to integrate a turntable in your home audio system, you should buy one with a built-in preamp or find a receiver with a phono input to get the most out of your records. 6. Control System Simplify access to your music by including your system in your Control4 home automation system. This way you can easily pick out the source you want to us. Search songs on an intuitive grid menu and even listen to your favorite streaming services like Tidal or Pandora all from the same smartphone, tablet or touchpad.
