Speakers: Buying Guide

In this article we'll help you choose the perfect set of speakers for your home entertainment system or computer.

Here are a few factors to consider when buying your speaker system :

Where will you listen to your music?
If you often move around the hose and garden and would like to continue to listen to your music then it is a good idea to invest in a set of Bose wireless home speakers. These are a particularly good choice for users who are unable or unwilling to install permanently wired units such as Bose in wall lifestyle speakers.

Wireless speakers
Having a set of wireless speakers will allow you a great deal of flexibility. Note that for the true audiophile, wireless speakers do not offer the same reproduction of sound quality as wired speakers as some information is lost when transmitted, received and decoded.

How much space do you have?
It is unfortunately a fact of physics that the larger the speaker, the better the sound quality. Larger diaphragms and resonance chambers allow bass tones to be reproduced more authentically than smaller systems.

This said however, some people find that large floor standing speakers produce too much bass, but this is down to personal preference.

What device will you use your speakers with?
If your passion is home theatre, then it is likely you will be listening to movie sound tracks from blu-ray or DVD. If this is the case then you will need to have a good home cinema receiver which can decode the surround sound signal and distribute it to your satellite speakers.

Music listening
If you however, you simply listen to music and films through your desktop computer, then make sure that you have high quality magnetically shielded speakers to protect your computer.

Accessories
There is no point in having expensive speakers if they are allowed to vibrate. Your speakers should be mounted on proper speaker stands. Atacama stands are a well respected brand. Additionally, aim to spend at least 10% of your speaker budget on good speaker cables.

Sound insulation
Consider buying sound insulating floor spikes and if you have spent a lot of money on your speakers then you may consider a sound meter. This device will help you position your speakers to make sure that you get proper stereo and surround sound.

As with all home cinema equipment, it is worth buying through an independent specialist shop. They will have listening rooms where you can audition equipment and find the perfect speakers that will not only match your budget, but also your personal taste.
