High Performance Audio

Music to Your Ears.

 

Home Audio

Since our inception in 1974, we’ve been recognized as one of the original high-end audio pioneers in the world. Our sound systems can be found in the finest homes and studios throughout North and South America. That’s because from the beginning, Sound Components was, and is, synonymous with the ultimate in high-performance home audio.

Brands and Experience

For over 40 years we have offered and installed only the finest brands in the industry. Brands like Bowers and Wilkins, Rockport Technologies, Wisdom Audio, McIntosh, Naim, and Anthem Audio are a few of the products we offer.

Throughout our history,  we have been and are uniquely qualified to bring music and cinema to life in your room. We invite you to come into our design center to experience how dramatic the performance difference  truly is of a Sound Components system.

Speaker Systems

Sound Components has what we consider the best selection of high-performance speakers just about anywhere in the country like the Devialet Phantom. With so many different environments that people need to place speakers in, we have all the bases covered to be able to provide the best solution for any environment. Below is a quick tutorial on the different types of speakers that are out there and how they put the sound out into the room:

DYNAMIC DRIVER SPEAKERS

The vast majority of speakers on the market fit into this category. When you remove the grill for a dynamic speaker, you will see woofers, mid-range drivers, and tweeters. B&W and Paradigm are 2 of our vendors that specialize in this category. Dynamic speakers tend to be capable of doing most all things well, and are capable of very high output. They are available as bookshelf speakers to large floor standers, and in price ranges from $200/pair on up to over $225,000. Dynamic driver speakers are offered in floor standing, bookshelf, on the wall, in the wall, and in the ceiling.

THIN FILM ELEMENT SPEAKERS

We have grouped a few different categories together here – electrostatic, planar magnetic and ribbon. Basically any speaker with a thin film element used as its midrange and tweeter driver we are calling a thin film speaker. Some of our vendors that fit into this category are Martin Logan and Wisdom Audio. GoldenEar uses conventional drivers for the midrange and woofers, and a thin film element for the tweeter. This technology has tremendous detail and resolution as the thin film element is extremely light and can start and stop very quickly but sometimes can sacrifice output compared to the best dynamic speakers.

SOUND COMPONENTS SPEAKER TRADE UP PROGRAM

Sound components was founded as a premium high-performance store in 1974. We have always prided ourselves on selling the very best at each respective price point. As such, we know what it is like to be passionate about your system, and always crave the newest and best.

Sound Components is pleased to offer a 1-year speaker trade up program. We will take your original speakers back and offer you 100% of your purchase price towards a new set of speakers, providing the new speakers are at least double the price of your original speakers. Call us to discuss it – even if your speakers are more than a year old.

LINE SOURCE OR POINT SOURCE RADIATORS?

The way the speaker puts the sound into the room matters. Most traditional speakers are point source radiators – meaning that their theory of operation is that all the sound will emanate from a single point in space and then move out into the room. Think of a pebble dropping into a pond – the rings that move out from the point of impact – that’s like a point source speaker. This can provide excellent imaging and placement, but can also induce reflections from the floor and ceiling. Line Source speakers operate on a different principal. The sound comes off in a vertical line with virtually no high frequencies going above or below the line,  which virtually eliminates floor and ceiling reflections. In addition, line sources tend to be more uniform as far as volume throughout the room. Most line source speakers also use a conventional dynamic woofer for the lowest frequencies. There is no such thing as a very small line source though, as the entire speaker needs to be at least 4 feet high to make it work properly.

IN THE WALL, CEILING, OR ROOM?

Great sound can be had from any one of the above, and we have them all on display in our store. However, if you are concerned with realistic imaging and placement, you should go with in room or in the wall. Historically, only in room speakers could be taken seriously by audiophiles, however, recently that has changed. Sound Components is at the forefront of working with new emerging  technologies in the speaker world, and is capable of offering amazing performance from in wall systems and even in ceiling. Stop by our store to be amazed at what is possible from all of the great speaker technologies out there today.

Cables

Sound Components carries audio and video cables from Transparent Audio and Audioquest. We feel it’s very important to connect your high-end audio and video components with appropriate high-quality cables, as there are substantial performance differences.

Sound Components showroom has the ability to demonstrate the difference high-performance cables can make. Most people are shocked at the types of improvements that proper cables can make. Call us to set up a demo.

POWER PROTECTION

Proper surge protection protects your equipment from external and internal surge events. UPS (uninterruptible power supply) technology continues powering delicate electronics for a period of time when you lose electrical power. Sound Components works with the leading manufacturers to provide both surge protection and UPS capability when needed.

POWER CONDITIONING

Power conditioning can make a substantial difference in the performance of your high-end audio and video system. All systems can benefit from high-quality power conditioning, and we offer a variety of options and several different price points.

Accessories & Tweaks

40 years of high-end experience has taught us the importance of the details. Sound Components works with Stillpoints isolation devices and Entreq passive grounding devices. Both of these accessories can have a shocking improvement on system performance. The types of benefits they yield can be made no other way.

In a true high-end music system, one of the key elements to concentrate on is lowering noise. Not just the readily noticeable noise, but the very low-level noise that you do not even realize is there – until you eliminate it. Once you do, you realize that everything is purer and better. You can hear deeper into the recording, it sounds less metallic and mechanical, the original space where the recording was made is more readily apparent – in a simple sense – it’s just better and more enjoyable.

Sound Components has specialized in this type of performance improvement since our inception. We sweat the details and have the experience to recognize and address them. Stop in and let us show you what is really on your discs.
