Some audio systems are built for simplicity: pull up something on your phone, press shuffle, and have it sent throughout your house to multiple speakers. While this provides a pleasant background, some systems are good enough to compel you to carve time from your busy schedule to just sit and listen. As with any technology, preference matters, but we can’t defy the laws of physics. Proper placement, including choosing the right speaker(s) for a given space, is critical in achieving what you envision when you start out on this journey. Part of the reason we place so much focus on careful selection of speakers, for example, is that they have the single greatest impact in your listening experience. Power, whether that takes the form of a Marantz integrated receiver or a killer Audiocontrol amplifier and preamp, is chosen in the service of properly powering those speakers. Cabling matters too, but here a proper level of appropriateness to the overall system is critical. Power conditioning in the chosen space is not only important for protecting sensitive electronics, but also “quiets” noisy power that can prevent resolution of those important low-level background details, like creaking of the bench the piano player is sitting on, or release of a foot pedal. Of course, the best speakers and electronics are pointless without addressing room acoustics, which we attack with a variety of solutions including the stylish and effective Artnovion line.
