1. Calibrate Your Television’s Sound Setting

TVs typically don't perform at their best straight out of the box. So, if you haven't had much of a fiddle with your sound setting other than adjusting picture settings and ambient light detection modes, then you really ought to adjust the TV’s sound setting to get the best sound quality from your TV.

2. Upgrade Your Speakers

If you don't have a premium speaker, consider investing in a pair to upgrade your home audio system for the new year. Speakers come in a variety of loudspeaker types and sizes. If you have limited space, bookshelf speakers exampled by Edifier S1000MKII Audiophile Active Bookshelf 2.0 Speaker may be the best choice.

3. Invest in Speaker Stands

Adding quality Speaker Stands to your setup can maximise your audio performance. If you already have a great pair of bookshelf speakers for your TV, now you can take them off the bookshelf and mount them on a proper pair of speaker stands. Not only do the stands keep speakers stable so they can deliver the best overall sound quality, but they also give you the flexibility to place them where you want them to be optimal.

4. Upgrade Your Subwoofers

The addition of a subwoofer to your home audio system setup can make a huge difference. A quality subwoofer will add impact and profundity to the sound of your home theatre space.If you already own a speaker set, consider upgrading your subwoofer with a more powerful subwoofer, such as the Edifier T5.


5. Buy a Soundbar

Most TVs today simply don't have speaker cabinets that are big enough to deliver quality sound. So, investing in a soundbar such as Edifier B3 will be an effective way to significantly improve the dialogue and sound effects of your favourite TV shows and movies.

6. Change Your Speaker Placement

The speaker placement is essential to experiencing the best sound quality when watching movies or TV shows and listening to music. You shouldn't place the speaker flat against a wall or in a corner. You need to leave space between the speaker and the wall or corner. Speakers should be oriented towards the main listening point (sweet spot) to provide the best balance of sound directions.

7. Set up Multi-Room Wireless Sound System

If you want to be able to play music, podcasts, and other types of audio throughout your entire home and easily control them from your smartphone, tablet, or even your voice, create a multi-room wireless speaker in the new year system.

What Is a Multi-Room Sound System?

The multi-room sound system allows you to hear music wherever you go with a Hi-Fi sound from Wi-Fi speakers. In general, depending on the system you choose, you can play different songs in different rooms at the same time, the same music in all rooms, or several simultaneously.
