Audio Hi-Fi (donde?) Tengo unos Sennheiser MX 500 que son muy comodos para andar en la calle, tienen muy buena respuesta a altas y bajas frecuencias, tienen muy buena calidad, y el volumen integrado en el cable es un plus para no tener que estarle moviendo al player que traigamos cargando. Pero quiero comprar unos Sennheiser HD 265 para poder apreciar la musica cuando estoy trabajando en la compu.. :wot: Por cierto, como acotación; los MX 500 me costaron aprox $350 MXN y los HD 264 valen aprox (segun recuerdo) $1,500 MXN, los primeros son de chiharito, pero funcionan muy bien, los segundos como su modelo lo indica, son HD, son profesionales pues.. Y los Top Line: HD 650 Nomas que estos valen aprox $3,500 :sarcasmo: High-end audio - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. High-end audio is a class of consumer home audio equipment marketed to audiophiles on the basis of high price or quality, and esoteric or novel sound reproduction technologies.

The term can refer simply to the price, to the build quality of the components, or to the subjective or objective quality of sound reproduction.[1][2] Definition[edit] The distinction between the terms high-end and high-fidelity (hi-fi) is not well defined.[3] According to one industry commentator, high-end could be defined as "gear below which’s price and performance one could not go without compromising the music and the sound".[4] Costs[edit] High-end audio equipment can be extremely expensive. Fidelity assessment[edit] The human sense of hearing is subjective and difficult to define.

Measurements can be deceiving; high or low figures of certain technical characteristics do not necessarily offer a good representation of how the equipment sounds to each person. Items often questioned[by whom?] See also[edit] DIY audio - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. DIY Audio means "do it yourself" audio. Rather than buying a piece of possibly expensive audio equipment, such as a high-end audio amplifier or speaker, the person practicing DIY Audio will make it him/herself. Alternatively, a DIYer may take an existing manufactured item of vintage era and update or modify it. The benefits of doing so include the satisfaction of creating something enjoyable, the possibility that the equipment made or updated is of higher quality than commercially available products and the pleasure of creating a custom-made device for which no exact equivalent is marketed.

Other motivations for DIY audio can include getting audio components at a lower cost, the entertainment of using the item, and being able to ensure quality of workmanship.[1] History[edit] Construction issues[edit] To construct a device takes more than knowledge of circuits, many would urge that the mechanical aspects of cabinets, cases and chassis' are the most time consuming aspects of audio DIY. Audiophile - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. An audiophile is a person enthusiastic about high-fidelity sound reproduction.[1] Audiophile values may be applied at all stages of music reproduction: the initial audio recording, the production process, and the playback, which is usually in a home setting.

"Audiophile" recordings include those using conventional formats but with special attention to audio quality, as well as recordings in high-resolution formats such as Super Audio CD or DVD-Audio. Recently, there has been interest in lossless file formats such as WAV, FLAC, WMA Lossless, and Apple Lossless. [citation needed] A key goal of audiophiles is to capture the experience of a live musical performance in a room with good acoustics, and reproduce it at home. Audio playback components[edit] An audio system typically consists of one or more source components, one or more amplification components, and (for stereo) two or more loudspeakers.[6] Signal cables (analog audio, speaker, digital audio etc.) are used to link these components.

In the BBW - that's Before Bi-Wiring - days, connecting your speakers to your amplifier simply involved running a two- wire cable from each amplifier output to the two terminals on the back of each speaker. Nowadays, many loudspeakers have four terminals on their rear panel allowing you to bi-wire them. This is a simple 'tweak' to elicit improved performance from them for the cost of an extra set of speaker cables.

In case you're not up to speed with how it's done, here's the only-slightly-technical low-down. In a regular, single-wired system, one pair of wires carries the full-range musical signal from the amplifier to each loudspeaker. A bi-wired system uses two pairs of wires per loudspeaker: one carries the high notes and the other carries the middle and low frequencies. You can bi-wire an existing installation by adding another set of loudspeaker cables or you can buy ready-made bi-wire cables .

Home cinema, also commonly called home theater or home theatre, refers to home entertainment systems that seek to reproduce a movie theater experience and mood, with the help of video and audio equipment in or outside a private home. System users typically use a large projected image or a large TV screen, and the audio is augmented with surround sound and low-frequency subwoofers. Introduction[edit] In the 1950s, playing home movies became popular in the United States as Kodak 8 mm film projector equipment became more affordable. The development of multi-channel audio systems and later LaserDisc in the 1980s created a new paradigm for home video.

Beginning in the late 1990s, and continuing throughout much of the 2000s, home-theater technology progressed with the development of the DVD-Video format, Dolby Digital 5.1-channel audio ("surround sound") speaker systems, and high-definition television (HDTV). Later developments[edit] Design[edit] Component systems vs. theater-in-a-box[edit] Home audio - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This home cinema satellite speaker provides high-quality audio when watching a concert on the flat screen television. Home audio systems are audio electronics intended for home entertainment use, such as shelf stereos and surround sound receivers. Home audio generally does not include such standard equipment such as built-in television speakers, but rather accessory equipment, which may be intended to enhance or replace standard equipment, such as standard TV speakers.

Since surround sound receivers, which are primarily intended to enhance the reproduction of a movie, are the most popular home audio device, the primary field of home audio is home cinema. History[edit] Monaural[edit] Home audio dates back before electricity, to Edison's phonograph, a monaural, low fidelity sound reproduction format. Early electrical phonographs as well as many other audio formats started out as monaural formats.

Amplifiers, usually known as just ‘amps’ are at the very heart of a stereo system. For this reason it’s essential to make the right choice.

THE INS & OUTS The first consideration when choosing your amp is the connectivity or inputs and outputs you require. Most inputs you’ll find on an amplifier are at what is called, ‘line level’. Line level is a techie term referring to the voltage outputs of CD players, tuners, games consoles and pretty much any source except one important exception - turntables. DON'T FORGET YOUR PORTABLE With MP3 portables, iPods and iPhones so prominent these days, it’s hard to find an amplifier that hasn’t made at least some concession to them.

RECORDING & HEADPHONES Once you have your inputs sorted, you need to consider outputs or recording loops. WATTS IT ALL ABOUT It might appear very simply that the higher an amps’ power rating the better it will sound - if only it were that easy!
