High-End Audio Transforms Home Theaters and Outdoor Entertainment
As home automation and AV integrators serving San Diego, CA, for 18 years, we’re fortunate to have had the opportunity to create some incredible entertainment spaces. These include luxurious home theaters with starlit fiber optic ceilings and backyards transformed into an oasis with the best outdoor TVs and landscape lighting. We’ve also designed media rooms with large flat-screen TVs that turn into artwork when not in use.
Throughout these many unique and memorable spaces, there’s one element that brings all of them to the pinnacle of high-performance entertainment—high-end audio. Without fail, it’s the engulfing, pure sound field that draws you into the cinematic scene, takes you to the middle of the stadium, and creates an unsurpassed outdoor evening.
Let’s examine what defines high-end audio and why it makes all the difference.
High-End Audio Defined
What is it that defines the ultimate in sound reproduction? Audiophiles describe it as well-balanced bass, midrange, and treble. You’ll also hear terms like clean, low distortion, and a dynamic range.
When you close your eyes, you can see the soundstage. You hear the guitars to the left and feel the bass from behind. You’re no longer in a room with high-fidelity speakers; you’re at the concert, immersed in the movie, or on the 50-yard line.
Of course, words can’t define high-end audio. One way you’ll know you’re listening to the best is if you play your favorite recording that you’ve played a million times before, and it sounds like you’re hearing it for the first time.
Brands that Make the Cut
At Andrus Smart Technologies, we partner with leading audio brands including Bowers & Wilkins (B&W), Triad, James Loudspeaker, Sonance, Episode, and KEF. Each of these brands has speakers that perform their best in different applications.
For example, the Triad Garden Array is designed to weather the great outdoors. The line possesses powerful subwoofers and satellite speakers with ultra-broad 150-degree dispersion. The result is pure sound that fills the air.
B&W is known worldwide for its 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers and the legendary Model 801 as the best loudspeaker in the world. It’s the speaker of choice for recording industry professionals, including recording studios like Abbey Road and Skywalker Studios.
Sonance is world-renowned for its architectural speakers. These in-wall and in-ceiling high-performance speakers disappear from view, appearing as small downlights or finished over with the surrounding material. These are ideal for whole-home audio systems that fill your home with beautiful music and soundtracks from invisible sources. We know it’s a lot to consider. Where do you even start? That’s where we come in. Our team is made up of passionate audiovisual experts that can help you develop a scalable option, starting with what means the most to you and expanding as your needs and dreams change.
