If you’ve ever lived in or visited a home that’s equipped with a surround system, you likely realized how great the audio quality was. Instead of the sound coming from a single location, it seemed to truly surround you. Let’s take a look at several times when high end surround sound in Chicago could make your life at home better.
What is surround sound?
For the uninitiated, surround sound is a system of three or more interconnected speakers that are placed in different locations in a room. The speakers can be connected to a stereo, so you can listen to music, or connected to a TV, so you can enjoy movies with greatly enhanced sound quality. Home audio professionals usually set up the system for you, so you can be sure that the system will work and that you’ll get the maximum sound experience.
How can it improve my life?
You don’t have to be an audiophile to enjoy high end surround sound in Chicago. Anyone who watches movies or sports, plays video games or entertains guests can appreciate having a surround system in the following situations:
- While watching movies: There’s no denying that taking the whole family out to the movies is an enjoyable experience. However, it definitely isn’t a wallet-friendly time, and it can be frustrating. Tickets alone can cost upwards of $10 each, and popcorn and sodas can easily send the expense even higher. On top of that, it seems like there’s always someone in the theatre talking throughout the movie and being a huge distraction. However, the theater’s surround sound speakers do give you a sense of actually being in the same scene as the characters, in the middle of all the action. Watching the movie on DVD at home won’t give you quite the same experience, unless you’ve installed high end surround sound in Chicago. A surround sound system will give you the same experience as a movie theatre, with a more comfortable environment and without the high ticket and refreshment prices.
- While watching sports: Going to a stadium to watch your favorite team is one of the most exciting things you can do, especially if your team wins. But fighting traffic, getting a parking spot and finding your seats can be a major pain. Add in the fact that peanuts and Cracker Jacks are ridiculously expensive, and your fun day at the ballpark may quickly seem a lot less enjoyable. But if you’ve installed surround sound speakers for your TV at home, you can watch the big game and feel like you’re right there in the stadium with all your favorite players!
- While entertaining guests: If you’ve ever hosted a dinner party or held a party with some ambient music in the background, hopefully you had a surround sound system installed. Without surround sound, guests far away from the speakers definitely didn’t enjoy the experience as well as they could have. Ensure all your guests enjoy the music with a surround sound system.
