Send Sound Soaring with a Superior Home Theater Music System
If you’re searching for a superior home theater music system, then you likely already understand the importance of sound. Especially, this is true in a home theater. Whether in the form of music, the whisper of a breeze, laughter, or sorrow expressed on screen, audio is key to creating the best home theater setup. With superior audio in place, these sounds encompass us and submerge us into the cinematic experience.
Truly, Plato explains our obsession with sound best:
“Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue.”
Our team at Synergy Integrated Systems would like to help that sound reach your soul!
Tips for Picking the Best Home Theater Music System
To do so, let’s go over a few tips for picking the best home theater music system.
First, here are a few key aspects to consider:
- Size of room
- Shape of room
- Furniture and Material in Room
- Speaker and Receiver Options
- Speaker Placement
How Room Size Affects Sound Quality
The energy of sound is fascinating. Soundwaves are practically a tangible substance. In fact, they can bounce about on certain surfaces. Or, they can seemingly get lost when in abundant space. We won’t get into the technical aspects of how all of this works. However, it’s suffice to say, the size of your room affects the quality of your sound. Generally, larger rooms require a more powerful sound system while smaller rooms can create reflection and require tweaking as well.
Likewise, the shape of the room affects how the audio behaves. If you have high ceilings, the sound tends to float away. Or, if you have concave areas, sound may reflect and converge which creates loud hotspots. On the other hand, convex areas help diffuse and reflect audio in many directions. By the way, reflection of soundwaves is generally a good thing as long as you have a professional installing your sound system.
Fortunately, our team at Synergy has years of experience dealing with all sorts of shapes and sizes of rooms. We will help guide you on the best way to deal with whatever scenario you have in your theater room.
Furniture and Materials Affect Soundwaves
Similarly, any objects that you have in your home theater affect distribution of sound as well. As mentioned, soundwaves bounce about on some surfaces. Ultimately, hard surfaces are the worst offenders. For instance, you may need to use an area rug or carpet if you have a hardwood floor.
Conversely, other materials absorb soundwaves. In some cases, this is good. Other times, too much sound is absorbed and the delectable notes of music or voices are muffled. Ultimately, achieving crystal clear tones is about balance. Luckily, our team at Synergy knows a lot about that too!

The Best Speakers for Your Home Theater Music System
Clearly, if you don’t start with the best products, it’s hard to end up with the best outcome. This is why we are authorized dealers of Integra, Denon and Marantz receivers. We also offer a comprehensive range of speakers including:
- Monitor Audio
- James Loudspeaker
- Origin Acoustics
Utilizing these reliable and time-tested vendors, we can create a robust, surround sound system.
Proper Placement of Speakers for Optimal Surround Sound Quality
Of course, fully surrounding yourself in sound requires knowledge and expertise in proper speaker placement. Long ago, the standard speaker set up was 5.1. Typically, this used 5 speakers and one subwoofer. However, home theaters generally need multiple subwoofers to create an even bass level throughout the room.
Now, 7.1 and Dolby Atmos are available. Dolby Atmos uses the 7-speaker setup but also adds in-ceiling speakers. Essentially, this addition improves the depth of the sound. It places you more in the action of the movie you’re watching, the game you’re cheering on or the notes of the music that fill your room.
Wiring, Usability and Flexibility
Once you have fantastic sound soaring through your home theater, you probably don’t want to have to fuss over it or think about it. Therefore, it’s imperative to have a seamless setup and a system that is easy to use.
From the beginning of your project, our team not only considers how your audio will play but also how your system looks and works. Your aesthetics and usability are as important to us as they are to you.
