These Architectural Speakers Pack Great Sound with a Twist
Some people love great sound, but they don't love the intrusion of high-fidelity speakers in their décor, no matter how well-designed and finished. You could say that a long time ago, if you decided on architectural speakers for a demure look to your sound, you would give up something in the audio quality department. Today, you can throw that notion out the window.
Today’s choices in architectural speakers are vast. Virtually every high-fidelity speaker maker has an architectural line voiced and engineered on par with their freestanding models. One of our favorite speaker brands is Monitor Audio. We've raved about their Controlled Performance Series, which is ideal for listening rooms or surround sound where speaker visibility is banned.
In this blog, we'd like to introduce you to a different type of Monitor Audio speaker – the SoundFrame. The SoundFrame is a high-performance speaker that can almost hide in plain sight in your Kennesaw or Atlanta, GA, listening or media room. Learn more about it below!

Read on to see how you can love your music in high quality everywhere you roam in your home.
Take a Look at the Incomparable McIntosh MC901
Some high-fidelity speakers require massive power to sound their best. Sometimes, even veteran audio enthusiasts have a speaker that they're not satisfied with that may just need more energy. For example, electrostatic speakers from MartinLogan require a lot of juice to bring out the airy and deep soundstage for which the brand and the technology are known. But without the right amplification, you might be unimpressed.
The other aspect of wringing the best sound from a great speaker is matching the amplifier to the speaker. There are several types of amplifier designs and topologies. Two classic types are vacuum tubes, which date back to the dawn of electronics, and solid state, which is the most common type found in most audio products.
There’s much more to this, but we’re trying to keep it simple here. And if you already know all that, you’ll still want to keep reading about the McIntosh MC901 amplifier, which combines both vacuum tubes and solid-state components into a beastly high-end audio amp with the power to drive just about any speaker in your Brookhaven, GA, listening room.
