Buying new speakers?

Things to consider

Be prepared

So, you'd like to buy new speakers. But what do all the specifications mean and, more importantly, what do they mean for you? Speakers that are right for some people aren't always the best choice for others. 

Choosing the best speakers for you depends a lot on your own personal preferences. So, make sure you be prepared.

The most important question is...

The first question you should ask yourself when buying new speakers is: in what way would you like to use them? Would you like to enhance your television's sound quality or are you looking for high-quality speakers to play your favourite music? And what kind of music do you like? These are the kind of preferences to take into account when purchasing your ideal speakers. 

You know your own budget and preferences best, so it's a good idea to carefully consider your priorities when it comes to buying new speakers. Where are you willing to make compromises and what are your absolute musts when it comes to budget and performance? Taking these factors into consideration in advance will certainly make your choice a bit easier!

First listen, then buy

There is a lot of focus on specifications when comparing speakers. While specifications do tell you a lot about a speaker, their importance should not be exaggerated. It is almost impossible to tell how suitable a speaker is for you from its specifications alone. The most important factor in making an assessment is actually whether you like the sound of the speaker.

Direct the sound towards you

When positioning your speakers, make sure that there are as few obstacles as possible between you and the speakers. The easiest solution is to mount your speakers on the wall. Then tilt the speakers so that the sound is directed to ear level. Or position the speaker at the correct height using a floor stand.
