Product Focus: Room Correction

Lyngdorf-TDAI-2170-amplifier

Have you ever heard of room correction in reference to audio equipment? You might be surprised to learn that with most audio systems, more than half of the sound you hear doesn’t come from your speakers alone. The shape and dynamics of the room, including your furnishings, play a big part of what you do hear in terms of echoes, reflections and absorption of sound. In the past that meant placing your speakers in the best spot acoustically, but not necessarily aesthetically.

Enter the Danish engineers at Lyngdorf who have created the most advanced and user-friendly room correction system on the market. More than twenty years of research have gone into this stylish integrated stereo amplifier that identifies the characteristics of your speakers and the influences of your room, and then takes the room out of the equation. With built-in RoomPerfect™ room correction, you hear exactly what the music is supposed to sound like, not the way your room makes the speakers make it sound.

This award-winning amplifier is the audiophile’s friend. A fully digital component, the TDAI-2170 has flexible upgrade modules that use the RoomPerfect™ technology. It is easy to set up and use, and enhances all speaker systems.

Good News for Design Enthusiasts

“I like it because with RoomPerfect™ you can place the speakers where they look best, not necessarily where they sound best,” says AVD president Brad Smith. “That’s why interior designers and architects should like it, too. And the sound is shockingly good.”

No more worrying about minimalistic spaces with echoes or rooms with a lot of upholstery absorbing too much sound. Applying RoomPerfect™ calibration allows homeowners and designers to position speakers in a way that best reflects the style of a room.

Create the Ultimate Sound in Any Space

SoundSystem

Creating a perfect sound system for a home or office can seem like significant task for audiophiles at any level of expertise. Experts enjoy the challenge of assembling a system from scratch and balancing its many components, while beginners can be bewildered by the range and type of audio equipment available. The following overview of some of the most popular new high-tech sound equipment can help both advanced users and new initiates understand what options are available.

  • Bluetooth speakers: Connecting your sound system to your speakers has long involved a sometimes complex and messy array of wires. Bluetooth speakers give you the option of wireless connections that eliminate the need for wires while still providing excellent sound. Lower-quality speakers may sacrifice some sound quality for the convenience of wireless operation, but higher-quality, higher-priced models will deliver sound that is equivalent to a high-end wired speaker system.
  • AirPlay Speakers: AirPlay-enabled speakers offer another wireless option for home sound systems. These speakers use your home Wi-Fi network to stream music and video to Apple devices without a loss of quality. An AirPlay setup provides generally higher quality sound than Bluetooth, but tends to interfere with network performance if being used at the same time as other network tasks.
  • Soundbars: Soundbars provide a modern shape for speaker systems, usually a long, narrow, bar-shaped speaker set up. They contain several drivers and an amplifier that makes them excellent as upgrades to TV speakers or as stand-along speakers for a typical sound system. Since soundbars are smaller than many other speaker types, they can be used in situations in which larger speakers may be impractical.
  • Passive speakers: These are the standard wired speakers that are common in many sound systems. They require a receiver to generate the power that provides the sound, but they can achieve excellent quality for a reasonable price.

Beginner or expert, Audio Video Design can help you choose the right sound system and equipment for your home or office. Contact us today for more information on the audio technology and components that will make your sound system work best for you.

Flat Panel TV vs. Projector

Projector

When setting up the display system for a home theater, many video enthusiasts face the choice of using a flat panel TV or a projector. Here is a brief overview of flat panel TVs and projectors that can help you understand their differences, advantages, and disadvantages.

  • Image size and resolution: A high-definition television has a constant image resolution and size that cannot be changed. Images from projectors can be adjusted to a degree by varying the distance between the projector and the screen.
  • Image quality: You can count on the image quality in a flat panel TV to stay consistent. The image from a projector can be affected by the brightness of the light source for projection. If there are problems with the video, they will likely be more noticeable in the larger projection image.
  • Space considerations: A flat-panel TV, though much smaller than previous generations of tube-based television sets, will still take up a significant amount of space in any room. Projectors are often mounted on the ceiling or in an out-of-the-way spot where they aren’t obtrusive. Screens for projectors can be rolled up and put away. In cases where the wall of the room is used as the screen, the only space needs are for the projector itself.
  • Convenience: Once your flat panel TV is set up, you usually don’t have to do much else to it. Projection systems that use portable screens will need to have the screen set up and taken down each time its used. Image adjustments may also require physically detaching, moving, and resecuring the projector.
  • Operating costs and lifespan: You can expect to pay for your flat panel TV once and get around 60,000 hours of use out of it. Projector bulbs can burn out frequently, requiring the investment of hundreds of dollars and the aggravation of changing bulbs.
