What Is “High-Fidelity?”

High fidelity is defined a sound reproduction system (like a stereo system) that is particularly effective at playing back sounds that resemble the original source. The truth about audio is that it can’t be defined by just two levels of quality – low and high-end – and hi-fi characteristics are sometimes difficult to spot immediately. Instead, speakers fall on a quality spectrum that ranges from low to high and everything in between, and the process of figuring out whether something is hi-fi is multifaceted. So, when you’re determining if a speaker is hi-fi enough for your home or listening room, you’ll want to see if it checks off on a list of characteristics and qualities. Explore them below:

No Mass Production: When your speakers are made in large factories with mass production, you’re more than likely to end up with a lower quality performance. Even minuscule inconsistencies or mistakes during a speaker’s manufacturing stage can lead to inferior audio.
Top-Notch Materials: A speaker’s materials are its whole foundation. What your audio equipment is made of has everything to do with its sound quality! Material that flexes can result in audio distortion – which means you want sturdy materials that help prevent this issue.

Unparalleled Sound: What is the most important factor in knowing if a speaker hits your high-fidelity standards? Listening to its performance. When you hear a top of the line speaker’s sound, you’ll be able to know right away that it’s on the high end of the spectrum. Always make sure to give your potential speaker a listen prior to buying!
