How to Get Hi-Fi Impact from High-End Speakers

A listening room with Hi-Fi audio speakers.

Audio Video Excellence Now Offering Classé Audio and Marantz

It's always exciting when we get to share the addition of new brands to our lineup of high-end speakers! So stop in to meet the lineup of audio tech from Classé Audio and Marantz. Either of these speaker brands will be a great addition to your Paradise Valley listening room, media center, or home theater.

And, while we're on the subject of high-end speakers, I always like to remind customers that investing in high-end speakers is not a guarantee that speaker quality will be extraordinary simply by plugging them in. That's why it's best to have a professional help you install them and tune them to improve your Hi-Fi listening experience.

Please continue reading to find out how to get the most out of your brand new high-end speakers.

Room Acoustics

If this is your first time making a high-end speaker purchase, buyers beware that your room acoustics can impact sound quality. For example, what may have sounded amazing in our showroom will sound differently when you install the same speakers at home. In addition, you will need to adjust for sound absorption if your room has many hard surfaces, like hardwoods, tile flooring, stone countertops, or wooden furniture. These surface types lend to echoing sounds that can sometimes be very harsh.

We suggest turning to a professional installation team to help you improve the acoustics in your room and find ways to enhance them for optimal speaker performance. These adjustments could include installing carpeting, rugs, curtains, or acoustic wall treatments. 

Speaker Placement

Where you place your speakers will also impact the sound you hear. Improve the listening experience for your 2-channel system by creating a triangle between the listener and the two loudspeakers at the front of the room. In addition, pull all speakers away from the walls to allow them room to breathe.

Quality Speaker Wire - a MUST!

Your high-end speakers deserve high-quality speaker wire to support the appropriate power levels for fantastic sound. We recommend a 12-gauge wire or more. Choose one that has quality construction. When in doubt, call us, and we'll point you in the right direction.

Fine Tune The Receiver

One cool thing about Hi-Fi audio is that sound is truly subjective. You should plan to fiddle with your receive or amplifier settings until you are satisfied with the sound. Play around with which speakers play bass and which play higher frequencies. You may prefer bass to come only from the subwoofer, or you may like to hear it more distributed around the room. This preference may change from time to time, depending on your mood and what you're playing. 

The Final Word

Get the most significant impact from your high-end speakers by having them professionally installed in your Paradise Valley home by audio experts like the Audio Video Excellence team. Then, personalize them to your preference by fine-tuning the receiver later.
