One of the latest additions to the home entertainment industry is the wireless home cinema. As the name suggests, this system allows you to set up a home cinema system without having to worry about any type of wiring.
You need to remember that when it comes to setting up a home theater system, there must be synergy between the music room itself and each piece of equipment that make up the entire system. You could have all the best equipment money could buy, but if you’re unable to get them to work synergistically, then everything’s of no use.
More than anything else, the first thing you need to buy is your speakers. Budget aside, the speakers must be appropriately sized for the dimensions of your music room for obvious reasons. Next on your list is your receiver or amplifier. You’d do well to read stereo tube amp reviews first before heading out to buy one, just to see if tube amplifiers work well with the wireless setup you have in mind. Moreover, the amp needs to match your speakers, which is all the more reason why you should read reviews first. Everything else follows after the speakers and receiver.
Now back to your wireless setup. This situation offers a number of advantages but it also has its disadvantages. Let us go through some of the pros and cons this system has.
First and probably the most obvious advantage is that this system does not require any wiring. Wiring a system can be one of the most frustrating things to do since the different components are scattered around the room and the wires of which can’t help but cross one another. Wires always seem to get in the way with this type of setup. Moreover once a wired system is properly installed, it cannot be moved anymore. Unlike a wireless home cinema, you have the liberty of moving around the speakers as you see fit. Speakers can be positioned behind the couch or mounted on walls with ease.
Another advantage a wireless home cinema has is that it provides better sound quality. Since data is transferred through a transmitter and receiver by using blue tooth technology, sound travels at a shorter distance and at a faster rate, giving the viewer a more crisp sound quality.
Now, here are the disadvantages of a wireless home cinema. First and foremost is its price. These systems make use of cutting-edge technology, which entails a higher cost. The prices can go up to twice as much as the wired home cinemas. If you’re working on a tight budget a wireless home cinema won’t be a good choice.
Another disadvantage is the occasional disruption in the signal. Since our homes are equipped with other wireless devices, there are times when these devices interrupt the signal to the speakers making them perform poorly. Although all you have to do is turn off the interfering device, this disruption can spoil the viewing experience.
Ultimately, the choice is yours. Just make sure you take your time in choosing a home cinema system to get the best value for your money.
