I have been a professional integrator of home electronics for the last decade. Over the years I have accumulated some tips for improving the performance of commonly available home theater systems. In this post, I will show you some of my tips and walk you through some of the steps you can take in order to boost the performance of your system.

In order to optimize the performance of home theater system, the first step is to make sure that your system is set up properly. That includes very find that all the connections between the speakers and the AV receiver as well as the connections between individual components are correct.

The Importance of Selecting High-Quality Audio Interconnects

admin   July 19, 2016   Comments Off on The Importance of Selecting High-Quality Audio Interconnects

Audio cables are essential when installing audio equipment. Without good-quality cables you will not achieve sufficient sound quality and reliability. Let me explain this by example. An audio signal usually has travel between several components. Let us say that the signal comes from a CD player. The CD player outputs an audio signal usually by an analog RCA output jack. Then the signal travels via connected to a preamplifier. The preamplifier will amplify the signal and then delivered via yet another connector to the final amplifier. Then the final amplifier delivers signal to speaker cables which transmit the audio to the speakers. In this simple case, there are three cables between the source of the audio and speakers. If any of these cables was to break or the audio was unable to travel freely then this would affect the whole system.

Over time low-quality audio connectors will corrode. Corrosion will cause a transition between the …

How to Set up Multiple Wireless Speakers

I will give you some tips for adding music to larger environments such as outdoor sports arenas or large indoor spaces. Obviously, adding sound to the spaces is quite a challenge. The fact is that these environments are so huge that setting up a couple of speakers will not solve the problem. Even though there are omnidirectional speakers available which radiate sound evenly in all directions, those speakers are still not good if used by themselves.

I’m also going to focus on setting up wireless speaker models. They are different types of wireless speakers available at which is suitable for outdoor use. If you are not using the speakers outdoors, you could also go to to find additional models which work as well indoors. The main challenge with using regular wireless speakers is the fact that sound dissipates fairly quickly the father you move away from the speaker. For that reason, you will …

If you are not technology savvy then you might be outsmarted by your computer believe it or not. The fact is that many companies especially those publishing content online keep tabs on your whereabouts and probably know a lot more about you than you would like to share. Unfortunately, there’s no easy way to opt out of many ways of being tracked. In this post I’m going to offer some ways for enhancing your privacy when going online.

Most browsers have a number of settings which allow you to control to certain degree how far your browser would be able to share private information. Many websites have malware which can run in the background which can easily access information from the computer. By tweaking the security settings, you can disable certain scripts from running. Also, I recommend installing a firewall software which will enhance the protection. Some virus software already has firewall functionality built in.…

A Few Words about Loudspeaker Impedance

admin   August 25, 2015   Comments Off on A Few Words about Loudspeaker Impedance

Loudspeaker impedance is not very well understood by many people. In this article, I’m going to go into some more detail regarding this fairly important specification of a loudspeaker. I’m also going to explain how this relates to picking a proper amplifier for driving the speakers.

Loudspeaker impedance is expressed as a number and the unit Ohms. Commercially available loudspeakers are typically rated at 4 or 8 ohms. However, they also loudspeakers available which are rated as low as 2 ohms and as high as 32 ohms. Now what exactly does that number represent? If you have ever used resistors while working or perhaps you are familiar with electronics then this unit represents a ratio. The ratio of how much voltage is required to exert a certain amount of current within the resistor is expressed in ohms. The same goes for loudspeakers.
