How Will You Use Your System?
The first question you’ll need to ask yourself is what your preferred listening style is. Some homeowners like to have one dedicated listening room. One advantage of this method is that you can fully tailor the space for audio. From the acoustics and equipment to style choices, we design the space to maximize your listening experience.
Perhaps you want the option to listen to music in every room in your home. A whole home audio system is a great choice. From one central location, you can adjust your audio settings in the kitchen, bedroom, or media room. We can help find the equipment for each of these spaces.
Which Speakers Should You Select?
High-quality speakers are imperative to having high-quality sound. They can have a major impact on the clarity and purity of your audio. When selecting a speaker, there are several factors to consider. Here are a few:
- Wiring: Wired or wireless? The question may be the starting point in your speaker search. They both have advantages and disadvantages, but it really depends on the needs of your home. An audio professional can help lay out both sides of the debate.
- Appearance: Do you want your speakers to make a statement or to blend in with the rest of your decor? From hidden speakers to floor-standing models, we can help you integrate your sound with your style.
- Specs: Every space will have unique acoustic requirements. You will need to make sure your new speakers are up to the task. Check out the model’s frequency response, impedance, and sensitivity to start, or your audio professional can help.
At Spire, we offer the expertise to answer these questions. We proudly offer the best quality brands of speakers, from Leon to Bowers and Wilkins, that we can trust to reproduce sound accurately, naturally, and beautifully. Also, we will fine-tune your new audio system to your specifications.
What Source Will You Use?
What is your preferred way of listening to music? Do you want to be able to stream any song at any time? Or, do you enjoy the warm sounds of vinyl? The answer will help determine what equipment will work best in your system.
The important thing is that you are using a high-quality source. MP3 files, for instance, compress files, which can distort the intended sound. When you have high-quality speakers, you may start to hear the issues. Work with your audio professional to make certain your source is not distorting your overall sound. Try saving your music on a media server in an uncompressed format or using streaming services, like Tidal, that focus on sound quality. Of course, there is the option for vinyl.
