Why does a good audio system matter?

Human beings are blessed with at least five senses – some may even have more-, and of this, sight and sound are paramount to us at Quater Note Acoustic.

This short article looks at the importance of having a good audio system.

One of the questions we – if you’ll excuse the p, one of the questions- hee, is why do I need a good sound system?

Our simple answer is that a good audio system enables you to get the most enjoyment out of every component attached to it. Please note that we said a good audio system and not necessarily an expensive one. Sometimes the simplest solutions are the most effective.

We find that premium audio system delivers huge benefits when it’s connected to a flat-screen TV. The reason for this is that the thinner TVs become, the less space there is for speakers. The result here is that you have a good picture, but your sound is thinner than the TV.

Our solution is to add a small amplifier and pair of decent speakers to your TV. This is usually easy as most new TVs have digital or analog outputs that can be connected to an amplifier. With this setup, everything you see on screen, be it from DSTV, Showmax, or Netflix is now matched to enhanced audio that makes the viewing/watching experience that much better. With better amplification and speakers, every sound you hear, from voices to sound effects, will be far more detailed and easier to listen to than the TV’s built-in speakers. Of course, this simple solution could be expanded to a full-blown Home theatre system that could blow your socks off.

With the likes of Deezer and Tidal, many people are now listening to more stereo music than ever before, and in many cases, the audio device of choice is a mobile phone. Unfortunately, if more than one person wants to listen to music at a time, these devices suffer from the same problem that TV’s do. There is really no space for decent speakers.

If we supplied it, the chances are that the same amplifier you’re using to get better audio from your TV has either a Bluetooth connection, a computer connection -via USB- or both. So you could now stream all your favorite music from your phone to the amplifier and hear and enjoy all the music all the time.

Once again, we could expand the simple setup into an Audiophile-style sound system capable of playing every format known to man.

As we stated right upfront, the reason for buying a better audio system is to get more enjoyment out of your system. If you enjoy your system, you’ll use it more, which means that you’re getting better value from it. Isn’t great value something we all want?
