Raise your hand if you know someone with a bluetooth speaker! If your hand is up, we’re not surprised. Bluetooth speakers have become increasingly popular, both for the sheer convenience of on-the-go sound, and for their low cost. No matter how easy these portable options are however – the very best stereo sound comes from hi-fi speakers.
Hi-fidelity components don’t compromise sound quality and are designed to reproduce audio exactly how it was intended to be heard. There’s no need to be a music aficionado or film buff for hi-fi; everyone can enjoy premium sound! With a hi-fi system, treat yourself to the ultimate auditory experience each time you press play on your favourite song or settle down for movie night. If that sounds like something you’d appreciate, keep reading to find out how to pick the best hi-fi speaker for you!
How to Select A Hi-Fi Speaker
When you first set out to find new home speakers, you’ll need to work out a budget. If you want the full kit and kaboodle, each component should be approximately the same quality, so budget will need to spread across each piece of equipment. Of course, you can purchase an all-in-one ‘active’ speaker – more on that down the line!
- Consider your Space
Naturally, the size of the room the speakers will be in needs to be taken into consideration, as they often require a fair amount of clear space. Insufficient space can create acoustic challenges, as sound can be distorted by objects too close in proximity. You may think the bigger the better – but for hi-fi, the best option might be a size down!
Do you want a floor-standing option or speakers that sit on surfaces (such as on a bookshelf)? Achieving the right ‘look’ is an important factor – if not for you, likely for someone else in the home! Luckily, there are plenty of variations – whether you want to keep it slim and stylish, or make a statement.
- Passive or Active
Depending on how ‘complicated’ you want to make it, speakers can come without amplification (passive), or have built-in amps (active). For the most simple approach, an active speaker is the way to go!
