The Most Important Sound Bar Feature? Musical Accuracy.

Posted by Tom Hannaher , Friday, February 15, 2013

Most companies that make home theater sound systems – or “sound bars” – seem to focus their efforts and reproducing movie sound effects. Car explosions, jet plane fly-overs, shotguns killing zombies…that sort of stuff. But frankly, anybody can design a sound system that recreates jet plane noises. Reproducing music so that it sounds real -- especially a well-recorded vocalist -- is a much more difficult task.
That's why we spend money on things like wood cabinets and high quality speaker drivers -- instead of a bunch of "features" that don't make the system sound any better. It's why we spend what seems like an eternity “voicing” our sound systems – tweaking subtle variations to make acoustic instruments and the human voice sound realistic. Once that’s done, the explosion part is easy.
