For many years sound equipment was designed in the same containers with basic speakers. As electronics technology advances, so does speaker technology. Older technology affects the basic appearance of speakers and delivery in room layouts. And to no surprise, there were problems with these common placements. Homeowners began to demand great sound that took up little space. This marks the beginning and success of audiophile furniture.
Challenge of Sound Delivery
A speaker placed on the floor or in the corner of a room would produce overpowering and irregular sound. Mid-ranges and high-ranges depressed leading to a very poor sound quality. Such a thing usually causes disturbances to a neighbor as sound vibrations go masked. Moreover, if speakers are against the wall or next to an entertainment center, the bad tone would become exaggerated. The mid and high-range sounds muffled. Even if you have a room layout that would allow you to keep speakers away from walls and corners, being too close to the floor would still result in unnatural bass tones and uneven ranges of sound. This simple analysis explains the necessity behind the use of audiophile furniture.
Purpose & Benefits of Audiophile Furniture
Newer audiophile furniture technology introduced speaker stands and encasements. This furniture is designed to hold the equipment steady. This equipment also controls sound vibration and provide protective cases to speakers. Most importantly audiophile furniture keeps sound off the ground. It also gives the production of an even and smooth bass. One major thing to consider when choosing audiophile furniture is the size of the room. Determine the space and design needed to accommodate the type of sound you want to produce.
