Home Audio System

The Yamaha RX-V681 stereo receiver with MusicCast speakers is an audio system that can keep pace with the latest technology in home theater. New audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X are becoming more prevalent in Blurays and will only continue to do so in coming years. That’s a great, as they produce the most lifelike and engrossing surround sound experience yet. But you want a home audio system that can support these files, as well as 4K audio. The Yamaha RX-V681 does just that, and gives you plenty of other useful features as well.If you have a large home, you will appreciate the functionality of two audio zones. The ability to set up Party Mode and Main Zone sync lets you play different audio at different volume in different rooms. Bluetooth, WiFi and Airplay allow you to position the wireless MusicCast speakers wherever you want without complicated setup. Control the audio from your app, or play any number of built in streaming services like Spotify.YPAO Reflected Sound Control helps you calibrate audio in any room for perfect speaker positioning, taking out the frustrating guesswork of setting up the 5.1.2 channel system.

Find deals and discounts on home stereo systems and home theater equipment on Newegg with the tools on this page. Here you can search and sort home stereo speakers and receivers by budget, brand, and product specifications. Unsure about how to gauge value for audio equipment? Read on to learn how to properly compare home theater systems. We will be decoding jargon to understand how cross-brand performance determines prices for Polk Audio, Klipsch, Samsung, Vizio, Bose audio equipment — and other top names in sound systems. Are you ready to reveal the best home theater system for your space? Let’s get started! Choose speaker systems by room size Most of the time, the home audio conversation starts with speaker recommendations. If you are a brand loyalist–say you want to find deals on Bose speakers, or discounts on a Klipsch surround sound system–that’s easily done using the site tools in the left navigation. Check the box next to your brand of choice to view only items by that brand. More important than brand, however, is choosing speakers that fit your home theater dimensions. Bigger is not always better for speakers, especially in a small room due to the physics of soundwaves. Do not try for massive subwoofer systems where a little wireless Bluetooth speaker is appropriate. Vendors do not make fitting speakers to a room an exact science. In fact, it might seem that brands deliberately muddy the water for sizing your stereo and speakers. Follow these common sense rules when picking the best home audio speakers for your room and you will be on the right track: Tower speaker height should not exceed half of your ceiling height. You have eight-foot ceilings? Speakers over four feet are overkill. In fact, unless you’re doing pro audio a four foot speaker is probably the largest you should consider. If you want big bass, you need a big space. The physics of sound is such that a 30 Hz frequency (a bone-rattling low tone) sounds best at 37 feet away. A 60 Hz low-end is more appropriate for listening from 15-20 feet. Use bookshelf speakers for music; this isn’t a hard rule, but in general, most genres don’t require ultra-low frequencies subwoofer unless you want to violate a noise ordinance. Subwoofers seal the deal for a movie-theater experience. Bass is for explosions and dinosaurs. If you’re going to spring for 5.1 or 6.1 surround sound it’s a good idea to invest a little extra into the subwoofer. You want to feel low frequencies in your solar plexus.

In a surround sound setup, a box-like stereo receiver sends unique signals to two or more speakers, with an onboard amplifier providing power to the speakers. The quarterback of the home audio system, a good stereo receiver orchestrates sonic frequencies and volume levels for the home audio system to create the effect of sitting right in the middle of an action film. This refinement of audio signal is called equalization, or (EQ). Home surround sound receivers offer precise EQ settings that fine-tune audio best suit the media and the room. The more speakers you have, the more precise you can get. A surround sound numbering system quantifies various speaker setups and configurations: 2.0 – A stereo setup with two speakers, a left and a right channel, situated in front of the viewer. 3.0 – Stereo setup plus a dedicated, powered subwoofer, also called a LFE (low-frequency effects) bass channel. 5.1 – Standard surround sound. Five channels total; four speakers placed around the perimeter plus a LFE. 6.1 – Adds a third channel called the back surround speaker. It is located behind the viewer in most cases and enhances the effect of sonic movement. It is commonplace for studios to release 6.1 DVD and Blu-ray titles nowadays. They are compatible with 5.1 systems.
