Bring Quality Sound to Your Home with the Right Technology

If you love music but could do without fighting the crowds of a live show, why not recreate the sound of a beautiful performance right at home? With the right high-end audio upgrades, you can create your own personal audio oasis. Luckily, a few of our premier brands are helping lead trends in the audio-product world.

In this blog, we’ll look at some of the audio technology trends to incorporate into your home.

Immersive Audio in Soundbars

Soundbars are popular for their size, ease of use, and flexibility in incorporating them into your room’s design. If you change your mind and want to rearrange, soundbars make that easy, without sacrificing sound quality or aesthetic.

In fact, one of our premier brands, Leon Speakers, offers custom-made soundbars to match the exact width and finish of any television. The sleek design is paired with a powerful audio experience, so while the soundbar may visually blend into the interior design, the sound will make a strong impact.

Wherever your soundbar is positioned, clear, precise audio will fill the room so that you experience the same high-end audio quality no matter where you are. This way, when you have friends over to watch a movie, or if you’re just enjoying music on a day in, you don’t have to worry about the sound quality diminishing just because you’re sitting in a different seat.

Diverse Speaker Designs 

Gone are the days when you would have to choose between an aesthetically-pleasing design and superior technology. Quality audio products are available in a wide range of designs to fit not only your preferences but also your home’s layout and look, including options for hidden technology.

Between two of our other premier brands, Meridian and Wisdom, the options are almost limitless to fit a room’s design. For seamless aesthetic, hidden in-ceiling and in-wall speakers move the technology out of the center of the room. Other alternatives can be incorporated into a room’s layout and act as statement pieces, like standing speakers, horizontal loudspeakers, soundbars and more.

With new speaker designs becoming more available and wide-ranged, now is a good time to check them out and see what works with your home’s look and feel. 

High-Resolution Audio 

Staying in to appreciate your favorite music in your media room or elsewhere around the house will be even more tempting when your sound quality is as good as the original. With high-resolution audio, you can reproduce the sonic experience of a live music performance in your home, rather than a low-quality copy of that show.

So, how does that happen? The key is lossless audio.

Lossless audio formats preserve original data so that when the file is played back, the sound is identical to the original source. The alternative — formats we’ve become used to like MP3 and WMA — is a highly-compressed audio file that has discarded some original data, resulting in a poor listening experience. 

Meridian works closely with high-resolution audio: lossless audio that recreates the complete range of sound from recordings mastered from high-quality music sources. In other words, it lets you virtually experience all the sonic details of a performance — eliminating distortion and general low-quality audio. So even inside your own home, you can still create a first-class listening experience.
