Bookshelf vs Floor Standing Tower/Speakers

When deciding on what’s right for you, ask yourself the following questions: ·What is my budget? ·Am I using the speakers in a home theatre system with a sub or a dedicated two-channel system without a sub? ·Am I looking for the best quality sound in the mids/highs or just want something that plays loud with a lot of bass? ·Will I be bass managing these speakers? ·Spacing considerations: can I fit a tower in my room?  Will my wife allow it? Just looking at these questions, one may come to the natural conclusion that it’s all about the bass. ...

Test Reviews

One of my competitors said to me about 6 months ago.  He would only stock speakers if they had good reviews from the couple of main reviewers.  No reviews means no stocking or even testing.  This struck me as a bit of a naive comment as what a reviewer hears and says and what the end user hears can be quite different. So I decided to check out some speakers and see how they reviewed.  I chose the Heco Direkt Einklaqng, for a couple of reasons.  The main one was when I looked at the speakers, I judged them on...

Acoustic Research RX-2010 Customer Review

In order to give this a fair go, I didn’t read any other reviews of the RX-2010 and I’ve put in at least 40 hours of listening in a combination of music and tv/movies. I was looking for a small 8-10inch subwoofer to compliment my Wharfedale front speakers, Sony centre speaker and Sony AV receiver. But when I tested the Acoustic Research RX-2010, it blew my socks off. I was thoroughly impressed at the deep bass and believe that it would complement any system to deliver a deep enriching experience whilst not taking up too much floor space. Design –...

Building a Home – What should I Pre-wire?

Are you building a new home?  Wondering what to prewire?  And what about all the new wireless technology? Do you worry if it’s worth it to prewire? I love the analogy Steve Jobs used when asked about PCs, Laptops and Tablets.  He said as good as cars are, we will always need trucks for heavy lifting. The same is true when you build a home.  There will always be heavy lifting to do in the home.  For these applications, you want to use wire. As a rule, we recommend prewire the following items in new construction and remodels: TVs, Projectors...

Hi-Res Audio: Next-gen sound Just as 4K and HDR have become the buzzwords of TVs, Hi-Res is the must-have standard for audio gear. You may even have noticed a little gold and black ‘Hi-Res Audio’ logo alongside some products, as if it’s an official seal of approval. But is Hi-Res Audio really such a big deal? It can be if the conditions are right, but there’s a lot of misleading information out there,...

Home Theatre Vs Media Room

HEARS THE DIFFERANCE In many modern homes today, the television with all its other media components isn’t just an accessory that is part of a room in the house — there is a whole room dedicated to it.

However, there is a massive difference between each of these rooms, which is important to recognize, especially if you are interested in installing one or the other in your own home. Here’s what you need to know. General Differences Let’s start with...
