Home Theatre AudioThe quality of audio in a Home Theatre is the main issue determining the quality of the cinema experience. The combination of human ear and brain is not capable of compensating for poor sound reproduction in the way that the brain can compensate for poor images, so the audio has to be flawless.
Surround Sound Systems Designed for Your RoomAt The Solent Electronic Home we analyse the audio characteristics of a room and work out how it will sound in its natural state. We then calculate what additions to the room are needed to make the sound perfect. These additions can be curtains or sound absorbing boards which will modify the way sound travels around the room and the way it is perceived by the audience in their seats.
Choosing Home Theatre SpeakersThe type of loudspeaker is also important, whether in-wall or in-ceiling and whether you want 5.1 surround sound or 7.1 surround sound. Is the room to be used only for watching films or is it a multi-purpose room? Will you also want to use an XBox or Wii? All of these things must be taken into consideration when designing the room.
Good design provides a strong foundation for the home theatre. In addition the best surround sound amplifiers provide means of getting the best setup possible using a small microphone which is placed in the listeners positions during an audio test sequence and the volume levels and tonal distribution between the audio channels are adjusted to get the best listening experience possible.
