Best home stereo system San Diego

Martin Logan Monolith Speakers and Friends - San Diego Home Stereo Systems

 

Ever go to a home stereo store and hear something along these lines...“I have picked out the absolute BEST stereo system for you!” – “You will never find anything better anywhere than the speaker you see before you now” – “You will think you died and went to heaven once you hear this top-of-the-line incomparable home theater system that I’m going to sell you for almost FREE!”. Have you actually ever been impressed with some of the stereo systems that are available at those stores?  It's possible...some of these stores do actually have some good decent audio/video gear.  However, is it the “BEST AVAILABLE ANYWHERE”?  Have you ever wondered just how crazy good and expensive a home theater system can be?  Here's an example of a home theater system below that, for all intents and purposes, could be considered as one of the BEST HOME STEREO SYSTEMS around.  Take a look.

 

    Krell Illusion surround sound pre-amplifier                             (1) $14,999 ea.                     = $14,999

                Krell Solo 575 575 watt monoblock amplifier                          (5) $6,999 ea.                       = $34,999

                Martin Logan Neolith Loudspeaker pair                                    (1) $79,995 pr.                     = $79,995

                Martin Logan Illusion ESL C34A center speaker                      (1) $6,995 ea.                       = $6,995

                Martin Logan ESL-EFX on-wall speaker pair                             (1) $3,095pr.                        = $3,095

                Sony 100" OLED TV XBR-100Z9D 4K Ultra HD                         (1) $59,999 ea.                     = $59,999

 

                                                                                                                                                   Total   = $200,082

 

This system actually is missing some things as some of today's formats need 13 AMPLIFIERS instead of the 5 above, there are 10s of thousands of dollars needed for power management and cables, etc. but this illustrates that there is some pretty amazing stuff out there. When you walk into our office here at Aire Theater Designs, this is the kind of system that we will tout as one of the best.  What gets even better is the fact that we deal with all the companies above.  Do you or someone you know want to ACTUALLY think you died and went to heaven listening to your home theater system? Maybe you don’t want to get that crazy but are still looking for a new more practical home theater system. If so, give us a call and let San Diego's home stereo system experts show you what you may be missing.

 

Sony OLED vs LED

Sony XBR65Z9D vs Sony XBR65A1E

 

Want the best flat screen TV on the market? We just came back from a special event at Sony and we saw the two best TVs on the market right next to each other. Here at Aire Theater Designs, we aren’t big fans of gobbledygook and blahblahblah (do you really need to know about “suboptimal tone mapping”, “judder” and “color channel clipping”). Therefore, here’s the straight shot on Sony’s two new reference sets and which one may be best for you.

 

Sony XBRZ9D: We consider this to be the best LED TV we’ve seen. This 65” masterpiece is the set to choose if you have:

 

  • A bright room with lots of ambient light
  • If you are seated directly in front on the TV
  • If you want the most realistic picture possible with true-to-life colors and motion

 

Sony XBR65A1E: This is Sony’s entry into the OLED TV market. In our opinion, it delivers a KO to the former champ in this arena which was LG’s OLED offering. It is the best OLED we have ever seen. Go with this 65” OLED TV if:

 

  • You have seats that aren’t directly in front of the TV
  • You want the best contrast possible and vibrant colors with deep blacks
  • You want the best 3D or gaming experience

 

Sony XBRZ9D vs Sony XBRA1E. It’s a battle royale that you can’t lose as a customer. If you want the best TV you can buy…we carry both of them. Give us a call and let San Diego’s Sony LED TV experts guide you to a successful decision between LED vs. OLED.

Pandora Premium vs. Spotify

Pandora Premium vs. Spotify...Who will get the universal symbol above?

 

To be short, you REALLY need Pandora Premium if you love music. However, here’s why you may NOT want Pandora Premium yet and why you have to have Spotify, Napster, Apple Music or related services.

Why you want Pandora Premium: Most of our clients understand how Pandora Internet Radio works. You type in an artist and you then can listen to songs from that band and contemporaries. Ex: The Cure radio will give you songs by The Cure, Depeche Mode, Siouxie and the Banshees, etc. However, most of our clients DON’T understand that Spotify, Napster, Apple Music, etc.  provide you with EVERY album that the Cure has ever produced. You can now listen to any album and any song at your leisure. It’s like having the biggest and best jukebox on Earth.

This is why our clients choose to pay $10.00/month for these services as they offer so much more music than standard Pandora Internet radio. The benefit to the new Pandora Premium is that it provides you with this library of artists, albums and music described above. Like the Grateful Dead? I just found 144 albums from them on Napster. Is $10.00/month worth having 144 albums from the Grateful Dead? Not if you hate them but you get the point. Any of these premium services will give you access to all this music.

Why you don’t want Pandora Premium: Do you use an iPad at home? Do you ever use your computer to listen to music? If so, forget about Pandora Premium. You can’t use the “world’s best jukebox” features giving you all of the aforementioned music with these devices. Pandora Premium at this point is only for mobile devices i.e. phones.

Pandora Premium also looks different from device to device. To keep things easy (take it from guys that troubleshoot audio/video issues every day), you want your pages to look the same for the end user, no matter if they are using an iPhone7, Samsung Galaxy phone, iPad or a laptop computer.

Summary: We would wait on Pandora Premium until they get the bugs ironed out. Many of our clients (including us when we are at our office) use iPads and computers to control their music. Until Pandora gets this right, we’d recommend going with Apple Music, Napster, Deezer  or Spotify. Which of these is best for you? Stay tuned or check back for our follow-up article describing the pros and cons of these other services.
