One of our favourite family time is Movie time! We never let the weekend to finish without watching atleast a movie. Though the Panasonic Viera at home gives the best experience, hubby is looking for good speakers for quite sometime now especially considering IPL is just around the corner.
Though there are multiple choices in the Technology market, he has a few specifications in his mind that would influence his decision of purchasing the Speakers.
- Sound Quality
- Number of Speakers
- Ease of connectivity
- And most importantly – Wireless – as he doesn’t like seeing the wires around the system
Thinking about the Sound quality, it is measured by two major characteristics.
- Signal to Noise Ratio – It is the amount of noise the speaker handles over the incoming signal = Often noted as “SNR” and measured in “DB – Decibel”, The higher the value, the better the performance and clearer the sound produced.
- Sensitivity – How loud the speaker can go! It is again measures in Decibels (DB), Higher the value, louder the speaker is. A good speaker would have 87 dB to 88 dB and a 90 dB is an excellent speaker.
- Frequency – Although it doesn’t play a critical role in performance measurement, this represents the lower – higher range of the sound the speaker can produce. Measured in Hertz (Hz) this gives you an idea how it handles different frequency range to produce a good quality sound. Considering the Human hearing limit is between 20hz to 20KHZ, it is genreally considered that the speaker frequency more equal to these values are good.
- Impedance: As in all the electrical and electronic devices, Resistance is an important factor. If you are an upcoming expert in electrical circuit, you might know resistance often has a direct effect of current flow. So higher the resistance, lower the current. Measured in Ohms, generally speakers are produced 6-8 ohms impedance rating – An optimum resistance for better sound.
- Size and material: It is a common understanding that, bigger the speaker, better the sound and denser the material, greater the quality. That’s the reason the antique speakers are often made of wood which you find in most of the modern good quality speakers too.
Having worked with similar area before and being a technology addict, I have explained these factors to hubby and out of his multiple shortlisted choices, the Panasonic wireless speakers are definitely marking the first place considering the cost and quality.
Do you love to watch movies at home? Are you fond of having the best audio system? Do you already have one?If so, What it is? Do you have any recommendation for good audio systems.
I would love to hear your thoughts.
Thanks for stopping by,
Mummy and the Cuties
