      Thumbs up The Home Audio Discussion Thread

      We @ GH's have dedicated section for Car Audio but not even a thread for Home audio, so I'm creating one.

      This is a dedicated thread for discussions related to Home Audio Systems (Speakers,Amplifiers,AV Receivers,HT Systems). Please post about your home audio setup, clear doubts in this thread.

      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Let me start discussion

      I am completely new to Home Audio systems, so have few questions.

      1. Is it a wise decision to buy different components from different manufacturers? (i,e speakers from one and Amps from some other manufacturer).
      2. What are the factors one should consider while buying audio systems?.
      3. How good are Indian manufactureres like Norge Audio,Sonodyne,Lithos,Telome,Audire etc?
      4. Which brands are worth price and which are over-priced?

      More to follow.

      I find Onkyo is one of the VFM home theater and I am using it for more than 5 years.

      I find BOSE to be over priced not sure whether it deserves that price tag

      Are Bose products worth price if I get 50% discount on them?. Cousin of mine works for one of their project, he might get discounts starting from next month .

      Hear and see if you like them.
      I have a Bose system and until I heard other competitive systems, I was pretty happy with Bose.
      Since then, I feel, the Bose sound is very doctored and its been almost 3 years since I powered up the Bose equipment.

      Completely depends what you what to buy. Upto noise cancelling headphones and Wave radio stuff I am fine with Bose. Beyond that I would not spend much on these acoustimas systems.


      Let us know what are you planning ? Stereo or full HT setup ? Room size and acoustic treatment so far?

      Invest in a complete 5.1 home theater system, that will fulfill almost all of your needs. But also make sure that if you want stereo output when listening music than you can turn on/off components according to your need.

      What is your budget?

      Considering your usage I would recommend to go with a good HTIB, but if you want separates u need to invest in a AVR with clean power and natural sound which can go along with any speakers you buy. Tons of brands in market but only can be decided upon your budget. Another thing do not overshoot your budget considering the audiophile recommendations. Stick to how much you want to spend on the audio.

      Just my 2 cents.
