Without a good set of speakers, the rest of your audio equipment would be kind of pointless. And while all of the other equipment that you invest in will definitely have a huge effect on the sound that you experience when playing your music or audio in general, it is your speakers that can really make or break your sound experience.
Whether you are looking to replace broken speakers or if you are just looking to up the ante with a brand new set that will make your audio better than before, shopping for speakers is both incredibly simple and also something that requires a little thought and planning. Basically, grabbing the first speakers you see off the shelf might not be the best idea, especially if you are planning to attach those speakers to a world-class system.
At Distinction Audio we have a range of top-quality speakers for sale. We have sourced our speakers from a wide range of the world’s best brands and we try to ensure that our customers enjoy the most cost friendly prices. It is no lie that speakers can cost a small fortune, if you are looking at the higher end speakers, but within our collection you will find a range of budget friendly options as well as those more expensive buys.
When you choose to buy your speakers from Distinction Audio, we can help you find the perfect speaker, the kind that will suit your system and your expectations. And to get you started with making your selection, you can use this helpful buyer’s guide.
Any speakers you buy, whether they are from a well-known brand or a no name one, are going to be an investment. Your speakers are going to serve a very practical purpose, and you are likely to be putting them to good use just about every day, especially if you have them in your home, so making the right decision is of utmost importance. And when buying, the considerations you need to make will go well beyond the brand and the price.
The first big thing you need to think about when buying your speakers is what you will be using them for. Home speakers are going to be very different to speakers used in an entertainment establishment. And then there is the question of whether you will be using the speakers for music, for movies, or for both.
Speakers for music will differ greatly from speakers that you will only be using to watch movies, especially as the speakers might connect in a rather different sort of way, since the music system and the TV or movie entertainment setup could be different.
Once you have decided exactly what your speakers will be used for, you can move onto the next steps.
The speakers themselves and the overall sound system will not be the only thing to affect the final quality of the sound. The space or room which it is placed in will also either improve or harm the quality. If the room is really big, there could be an echo and if the room is too small, the sound could be distorted to such a degree that it ruins the effect. When taking the room into consideration, you will need to buy the right sized speakers and any other accessories that could make the audio clearer.
Larger speakers in a small room are never a great idea not just because they won’t give you the best sound, but also because they might just end up taking quite a bit of space, making the room look cramped.
If the speakers are being placed within furniture, then this will affect the sound. The bass needs to have a clear outlet in order to prevent it from bouncing around and sounding distorted and boomy. The most common piece of furniture to place speakers in is a cabinet, but this can be one of the worst places to put your speaker unless you’ve made a really good plan.
Walls and floors can be less than ideal for sound, but only if they are flat. A smooth surface is going to be a lot more reflective, and as such the sound can bounce around and cause an unwelcome echo, especially if the room is large.
If you are worried about an echo, you can put the speakers in another room, or you can make sure that the space you are using the speakers in has a good deal of furniture, curtains, plants and anything else that can break the flat surface and as such improve the sound quality.
Not all speakers are going to be compatible with the system that you already have, if you are planning on adding to your setup rather than buying speakers as a part of your newest entertainment system. For this reason, you are going to have to be sure that you are buying speakers that will match your system, something you can easily figure out when talking to a consultant.
