Experience Studio-Quality Sound from the Comforts of Home
The audio industry has no shortage of buzzwords, and “high fidelity” is one you may often hear. Perhaps you already know that high fidelity refers to the high-quality reproduction of sound with very minimal distortion. In other words, high-fidelity audio systems reproduce music as close to the original recording as possible so that listeners can enjoy music the way the artists heard it in the studio.
Any music fan deserves a high-quality listening experience when playing their favorite tunes at home. Unfortunately, some homeowners in Vinings, GA may be missing out on such an experience due to persisting misconceptions about high-fidelity speakers. Let’s dispel these myths so that you can truly take advantage of high-performance sound at home.

JL Audio Subwoofers Bring the Low-End Grunt without the Bulk
If you’re not a home theater or audio aficionado, you might think a subwoofer is a speaker you don't need. That is, until you hear the very same set of speakers you have, in your room, with a well-integrated subwoofer (or two). We'll put some money on the chance that you won't want to go back to your system sans subwoofers.
We will grant you that if you have some incredible full-range speakers, like B&W Diamonds, or others of that class, you may not want for more bass. Still, you might be surprised at how much the right subwoofer can add to even the best speakers' sound quality. The reason is that bass is foundational for music and movies, adding fullness and depth to the soundstage that gives the sound more gravitas and impact. We're not talking about rumbly, sloppy bass here. We're talking about punchy, tight, fast, and impactful bass that keeps up with the most complicated movie soundtracks and music.
Perhaps we’ve convinced you that you need a subwoofer, no matter what your system looks like. But, you say, I don’t want the big box in my listening room/home theater/media room/escape room. Once again, we'll grant you the point that most subwoofers are lacking in the aesthetics department. But we have a solution for you, too: the architectural subwoofer. Yes, subwoofers can be built into the wall and even the ceiling.
Read on to learn more about JL Audio architectural subwoofers for that room in your Atlanta home where you want to hear the bass but never see the box.
Comparing the Most Popular Streaming Music Services
We live in a world of almost limitless content. In cable TV, an old joke was, "we have 300 channels, and there's nothing to watch." You'd be hard-pressed to make that joke today with the wonderful world of streaming content so readily available to us. With Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO, Apple TV+, Disney+, and so many more, it's difficult to think about not finding something you want to watch.
But this blog is about audio, not video! And the amount and range of music we can call up with a few flicks on a touchscreen are equally amazing. Today’s streaming music services boast 40 million-plus tracks of recorded music available in an instant, whether it’s from 60 years ago or today’s top hits. It’s equally difficult to imagine not being able to find some music you like to listen to on a streaming service.
You might be wondering, what's the difference in streaming services? Isn't the music library much the same? The short answer is yes. But the way you find that music, and how you interact with it is different. Some folks feel very strongly about their preference for Spotify over Apple Music or vice-versa.
So which service should you use on your whole-home audio system in Atlanta? GHT Group isn't here to tell you which one is best – that's up to you. The good news is that all the ones we'll discuss here work with whole-home audio systems we recommend like Control4.
Read on for a brief overview of five of the most popular streaming services to see which ones are for you.
