Are you ready to find the perfect hi-fi sound system for your home?

Choosing the right amplifier components is crucial for generating amazing sound quality

The amplifier is the driving force behind your hi-fi sound system. Traditional hi-fi systems are built with passive speakers — i.e., speakers that don’t generate their own power.

Today, you have a few choices for amplification: a separates system with a preamp and amp or an integrated amp setup.

In the not-too-distant past, this blog topic wasn’t even a point of discussion in the AV world. That’s because audiophiles were adamant that the only way to obtain true hi-fi audio was to build a system with a preamplifier, power amplifier, and set of hi-fi speakers. However, as integrated amps have improved, the thinking has shifted.

Keep reading for a more in-depth look at both choices to help you decide which setup is best for your home sound system in Bergen County, NJ.
