Why the High Price of High-End Audio?

For the Audiophile in All of Us, Luxury Speakers Are Worth Every Penny 

High-end audio has long been associated with luxury and exclusivity, with many top-of-the-line loudspeakers commanding price tags that at first may seem unwarranted. But if you are a “certified audiophile,” you know better. The investment in a high-end audio system is about a lot more than taste or status; it's about experiencing pure, unadulterated sound quality.

It is our mission that you hear every tone the way it was meant to be heard and that the speakers, amplifiers, and other equipment in your home meet the highest quality standards.

Crafting the Perfect Speaker

From the kitchen to the home office, high-end audio is all about craftsmanship and engineering. Luxury loudspeakers are made with the highest quality materials and cutting-edge technology, which inevitably translates into a higher price tag. Every material used on a high-end speaker must be conducive to lossless audio. For example, Meridian loudspeaker enclosures are engineered to be acoustically inert, contributing to the accuracy, clarity, and detail of what you hear in your media room. 

Unmatched attention to detail extends from materials and construction to every component inside high-end speakers. To work as advertised, audio equipment must also be installed correctly. The acoustic qualities of a room matter and so does turning each driver to point in precisely the right direction. Likewise, adding acoustic treatments to walls and ceilings will lead to optimal performance. 

Speaking of Optimal Performance 

High-end loudspeakers and amplifiers are designed to produce lossless, dynamic sound with minimal distortion. Audiophiles understand that you can’t put a price tag on listening to your favorite band as if you were in the front row at one of their concerts. Sure, a store-bought speaker may do the trick on a camping trip, but this is your home we’re talking about! Besides, the long-term value of high-end speakers, built to last for decades and backed by our certified experts, offsets most of their initial cost. Products from companies like Dan D'Agostino, Meridian, Simaudio, and AudioQuest, all of them our brand partners, will last a lifetime or longer.

Other benefits of high-end audio systems are their degree of customization and easy access to extensive music libraries, both of which have increased as newer, better technologies become available. Specialized equipment like Hi-Fi turntables is readily available, and the top audio streaming services now offer uncompressed songs, leading to better sound quality than ever before. 

There is no better way to hear your favorite music than through a new set of high-end speakers. You can listen to them in action at our state-the-art New Jersey showroom, or contact us so we can install them in your home!
