How to Choose the Best Audio System For Your Home

Creating a superior audio system for your home isn’t as easy as plugging in and pressing play. There are a number of factors to consider which determine the overall sound quality of your home audio system. Simply buying good speakers isn’t enough. Here’s a guide to what else must be considered.


Different homes in Auckland have different acoustics, depending on room size, interior materials, and even whether you have a carpet or hard floors. Understanding which speaker system will suit the chosen area is an essential part of creating a pitch-perfect home audio system.  

Types of Speakers

With several speaker designs to choose from, it can feel intimidating. With floor-standing, soundbars, subwoofers, on-wall, in-wall and in-ceiling speakers most people don’t know where to start. The room layout must be considered in terms of connectivity, placement and design. 

Speakers Brand

Although we told you that the speakers themselves aren’t enough, they are still the most important aspect of an audio system. At EAV, we stick to the world’s leading audio brands in Triad, SONOS, KEF JBL, Sonance, Bowers & Wilkins, and more.


Matching the right components throughout your audio system build is essential for ensuring everything works in harmony. Speakers usually come with a specified range of amplifier power necessary to power each unit correctly.
