Choosing a home audio system is not as simple as it seems, particularly when it comes to setting up this technology. In this article, you’ll learn the five most common misconceptions about installing home theater systems.
Great audio systems are expensive
If paying for your home audio leaves a huge void in your bank account, it must be good! This is particularly true for TVs that come with speakers. With the increasing popularity of smart and sleek designs, it leaves manufacturers little room to work on a modest set of speakers. A good rule of thumb – you should spend just about the same amount on the audio system as they have on the television.
The smaller the speakers the better
Satellite speakers are good especially when it comes with a decent-sized sub-woofer. Naturally, tiny speakers are not the best in creating low frequency sounds – this holds true for sub-woofer. While size does not always equate to value, choosing a sound system with larger speakers for the center channel is recommended.
Dolby = great sound quality
Known for surround sound technology, Dolby is synonymous to excellent sound quality. This does not mean that it will always be what you’ll need. There are several surround systems available in the market that is up to par with Dolby’s quality.
You don’t always have to take the word of manufacturer’s specifications. Check the frequency response curve suggested by the manufacturer for ideal sound quality. Naturally, the curve is flatter, but the only way to really know the difference is to hear it.
Best cables = best sound
When you talk about sound quality, cables should always be considered. Sound cables vary in quality and cost, but spending too much money on cables in this day and age is not smart. What you’ll really need to focus on is to have long enough wires that are appropriate for your home theater system installation.
