3 Simple Tricks to Maximize Your High-End Audio
Unlimited Integration Shares Our Best Audio Performance Secrets Here!
Want to experience high-resolution audio in your Sugar Land, TX, home? It might not be as easy as it seems at first. Simply streaming Pandora on a mobile device might feel like the new normal, but it may not deliver the sound quality that audiophiles crave.
Unlimited Integration wants you to get the most from your audio listening experience, so we’ll uncover a few tips and tricks to get you started. Keep reading for three of our most effective ideas that you may not have considered yet!
Tip #1: Add a High-Quality CD Player to your System
No, the CD is not dead yet, and it’s still a great format for high quality audio. Meridian has consistently created some of the best CD players of all time, with advanced digital signal processing (DSP), simple set-up connections and impeccable design. For example, their 808v6 Signature Reference CD Player offers advanced high-end audio technologies have been implemented to reduce digital errors. Because of its flexible integration options, you can use it with the technology you already have.
Tip #2: Don’t Neglect Your Streaming Service
Not all streaming services were created equally. While listening to your favorite tunes at work, Spotify or Pandora might work just fine, but you should expect more within your media and listening rooms.
Enter TIDAL, which streams your favorite music, just at a much higher quality. It also works on many devices, including iOS, Android and various speaker systems. Similarly, the recently launched Deezer Elite offering gives you access 35 million streaming tracks at lossless CD quality.
Tip #3: Don’t Download Files That Compress Tracks
The secret to finding high-resolution music is finding the highest bitrate or the amount of data converted per second. Higher bitrates translate into more accurate and complete music signals, giving you a sound closer to what the original artist and producer want the listener to hear.
When you compress a file into an MP3, you’re going to lose a great deal of that bitrate, giving us what we call “lossy” sound, since the original nuances of the track are missing. For reference, a CD’s bitrate measures around 1,400 kbps, while an MP3’s significantly drops to 320 kbps due to this compression factor.
Where can you find high-resolution tracks to download? Check out HDTracks and Super HiRez for starters. To get the most from these tracks, a state-of-the-art player like the Meridian 818V3 will extract every detail in the music.
