What Speakers are the Best Fit For You?

Upgrade Your Speakers Intelligently.

You may find yourself wanting to upgrade your theater system but are unsure what you really need.  We want you to have top notch quality at the level that fits your lifestyle. You don’t necessarily need large speakers or a full 7.1-channel surround system to get great sound. Take a moment to think about how you interpret music.

What Type of Listener are You?

Are you an active listener who plays close attention to details? Do you engage in the music, listening for little nuances, trying to determine the artist’s intention? Or are you a passive listener who plays music to set a mood or performing an activity while music plays in the background?

If you are a passive listener a pair of quality bookshelf speakers or in-wall speakers may be the perfect compliment to occasional TV and movies. What if you want more bass?  A small subwoofer can deliver the extra low end to add drama to the setting.

If you are more of an active listener, or simply want the option of having your hair stand up on the back of your neck, a pair of monitors or floor-standing speakers may be the solution. Remember that a small floor-standing speaker with multiple drivers can deliver a really full-sounding highly satisfying music experience without taking a ton of space.
If you are desiring to beef up the sound for movie night and occasional music listening, a sound bar and a wireless subwoofer combination could be the ticket.

Finally, there is the film fanatic, you know who you are! This level of audio enjoyment requires the full on surround sound experience! A 360 degree high definition sound from precise angles in multiple areas of your room can create that “sweet spot” where the sound may just knock your socks off while reclining.

In conclusion, your lifestyle and desires need to be matched with the ever advancing technology field of home audio.  We want you to understand the basics and we will help you figure out the rest.

Music That Gives You Chills


An epic song comes on at just the right time. What is your body’s reaction? Perhaps you have felt a spine tingling sensation right before the music peaks. If you have, you’re not alone. According to a recent study, about 50 percent of people get chills when listening to music. The song stimulates the brain, encouraging dopamine to flood the striatum—a part of the forebrain activated by reward and motivation. Your personality has a lot to do with how powerful the effect music can have but sound quality has everything to do with your experience.

The Impact of Good Speakers

What does your sound system reveal about your experience? Most people don’t realize poor quality speakers take away all the details that matter.  In contrast, a high quality sound system enriches your audio experience more fully, allowing you to hear texture in a song.  Have you heard of the “colors of music” before?  This terms refers to texture – or layers in a track.  Perhaps you can recall hearing a vocalist sing acapella at the start of a song. Before long, in chimes the sweet sound of a piano and by time the drums hit the track your body and mind are completely engaged!  As a result, the layers combined created an overload on your senses and BAM you experience the chills. This is the type of sound you want in your home theater system. Good quality that brings out the best in the song composed.

Health Benefits of Music

Music has tremendous value in our life whether we know it or not. Every single person on the planet has experienced the health benefits that come with listening, or even better, singing a good tune. Sound arranged in the right chords have the power to ease stress, enhance our mood, increase our workout endurance, improve blood circulation, and even heal physical and emotional pain. In addition, when you sing, your vocal chords vibrate in such a way that it has a direct positive impact on your nervous system.  Now that is really cool! As the legendary musician Prince put it: “The key to longevity is to learn every aspect of music that you can.”
