Choosing Hi-Fi / Audio Equipment

Key-Features

 Those new or unfamiliar with audio tend to trust well known brand names such as Sony, Bose or Bang & Olufsen - These brands are popular and great value. However, before believing that they represent the last word Hi-Fi, it is fair to say that when it comes to ultimate sound quality, most serious audio reviewers recommend alternatives.

The alternatives may perform better at the same price. Or they may produce dramatic improvements for a premium. It can come as a revelation that there is a vast world of specialist high performance audio which is virtually unknown.

Those Experienced with specialist high performance audio tend to make choices based on:

  • Reviews in Hi-Fi Magazines
  • Specialist dealers they respect and trust
  • Word of mouth from knowledgeable friends
  • Internet forums & Owner comments
  • Auditioning equipment first hand ( by far the best method)
  • Speaking with Manufacturers

All this is a passion and enjoyment for some audio enthusiasts but if you simply love music and lack time, then aquiring a system that you can't wait to get home to listen to is dependent on the best guidance.

Why take the time to get it right

Like buying a house or a good bed, a Hi Fi system is likely to be with you for a long time. Those who invest in a better system, do so for good reason:

  • A highly realistic, natural sound will transform listening to music, watching films, television, playing games etc. The difference is like listening to the 1812 overture played at a concert hall live and then hearing it as piped music through a phone -  There really is no comparison - Only a good system captures the true scale and power of a performance whereas inferior systems simply miss it altogether. This enrichment of the listening experience adds quality to being at home in a way that nothing else can.
  • Better sound conveys reality even at a sub-conscious level. Most people don't realise that sound quality delivers a sense of heightened reality, even more so than high definition TV.
  • A good sound system adds style and reflects taste.
  • Improved Sound Quality has therapeutic effects which help people relax and unwind in a busy lifestyle
  • If you have friends round, they will notice how much better their favorite tracks sound and will enjoy being around more. Exposure to a great system is a special experience.
  • Some people have upgraded everything else in their lives and their sound system now lags well behind.

Sound quality is not one of those areas to skimp on as it can add more enjoyment to life than most people are aware of. The old saying “you don't know, what you don't know” is rarely more true than in this area. It's also an investment which should last between 15 to 30 years - not worth a rushed decision. We promise to vastly enhance your enjoyment of music and video.
