Regular speakers, often referred to as main or full-range speakers, are designed to produce a wide range of audio frequencies, covering both high and low notes. These versatile speakers are suitable for most music and audio playback, ensuring a well-balanced sound that caters to all aspects of the audio spectrum.

On the other hand, a subwoofer is a specialised speaker that focuses solely on producing the lowest audio frequencies, known as bass. By handling these low-frequency sounds, a subwoofer adds depth and dimension to your audio experience, making it perfect for enhancing the impact of movie soundtracks, electronic music, or any other content with deep bass elements.

The primary difference between a regular speaker and a subwoofer lies in their function and the frequency range they cover. While regular speakers aim to reproduce the entire audio spectrum, subwoofers (like what you’ll find at Cambridge Audio) are dedicated to delivering powerful bass notes that can truly elevate your listening experience.

Absolutely! Cambridge Audio NZ is a fantastic choice for creating an immersive home theatre or surround sound system. With their exceptional sound quality and versatile range, these speakers can truly enhance your audio experience, whether you’re watching films, playing video games, or enjoying your favourite TV shows.

To set up a surround sound system with Cambridge Audio speakers, you’ll want a combination of front, centre, and rear speakers, as well as a subwoofer for those powerful bass notes. The specific speaker models you choose will depend on factors such as room size, budget, and personal preferences, but rest assured that Cambridge Audio offers a variety of options to suit your needs.

For the best experience, begin by selecting a pair of front speakers, either floor-standing or bookshelf models, which will serve as the foundation of your sound system. Next, add a centre speaker to handle dialogue and on-screen action, ensuring high levels of audio clarity. Then, incorporate rear speakers for that all-important surround effect, enveloping you in the sound from all angles.

Finally, remember to include a subwoofer to deliver those deep, resonant bass notes that truly bring your home theatre experience to life.

If you love chilling outdoors with music or often have friends over for a backyard hangout, getting Cambridge Audio outdoor speakers can really step up your game. Music brings people together, so imagine having a party in your garden or on your patio, all while enjoying top-notch sound quality.

Plus, they’re great for your own downtime too, whether you’re chilling with your favourite tunes, catching up on podcasts, or getting lost in an audiobook.

Cambridge Audio outdoor speakers are totally worth it because they’re made to handle the outside environment while still delivering awesome sound. And when they’re not on, you won’t even know they’re here, thanks to the discreet design.

With Cambridge Audio’s outdoor speakers, you’ll never need to worry about your small Bluetooth speakers running out of charge. You’ll have speakers that pack a punch, ready to go whenever you are!

In our increasingly digital world, most of the music and audio content we consume is stored and transmitted in digital format. However, to actually enjoy the sound, our speakers need to output analogue signals, which are continuous electrical waves. That’s where a DAC comes into play – it converts those digital signals into analogue ones that your speakers can reproduce, so you can enjoy your favourite tunes and movies with high-quality sound.

Now, you might wonder why you’d need to order a separate DAC product when most devices, like smartphones, computers, and AV receivers, have them built-in. Well, the truth is that not all DACs are created equal. A standalone, high-quality DAC can offer better performance, resulting in a more accurate and detailed sound reproduction compared to the built-in DACs in many consumer devices.

Adding a top-notch Cambridge Audio DAC to your home audio system can truly elevate your listening experience, providing you with richer, more immersive sound. So if you’re an audiophile or simply someone who appreciates great sound quality, investing in a dedicated DAC is definitely worth considering.
