Pre-Built Home Audio System vs. Custom Home Theater
For those thinking the audio systems from top brands is the best for home audio, you can get more at the same price with a great sound like in the movie theaters. By that, we do not mean top brands are bad. They are good but not the best. The main reason being the generalized approach is that they fit every scenario and environment. Having experts to set up the screen and audio of home theater setup is going to beat them.
Pre-built Audio System
You see these sound systems every day in the advertisement and stores. While the quality of pre-built sound systems has grown up significantly in the past few decades, they have not matched the quality of custom home theater systems. The pre-built systems are designed and manufactured keeping in mind the casual user. Such as those who do not know much about sound levels. They satisfy the purpose of easy setup and interchangeable sound profiles. However, do not give the complete flexibility to play with the sound frequency and depth.
Custom Home Theater
Individual components like speakers of various hertz, amps and other accessories are coupled manually. This is to build the custom home audio system as per requirements. The options and combination are endless depending on the audio receiver or amp we use. Custom sound systems are the best when it comes to fine–tuning and creating the best sound profile for your home theater system.
Custom home theater system is targeted to professionals, and hence, you can easily find quality components with the only catch of manual setup required. This can be set up with the help of home automation companies for the best results if you lack the knowledge.
Which is Right for You?
Prebuilt audio systems are best for beginners. Such as those who require a good sound system significantly better than the TV’s built–in speakers do. In this case, the pre-sets and audio control with pre-programmed is enough. If you require a much more flexible sound experience and sound clarity up to 100%, there is no other go than building a custom home theater. Additionally, custom setups allow you to blend with the interior design and look seamless. Price wise there is going to be a little difference; in custom home audio systems due to the usage of high–end components. If you have good knowledge about audio system and electronics, you can save a chunk of it by doing it yourself.
