With social distancing in place, you are spending more time at home than ever. Going outside during this time will have a positive effect on both your physical and mental health. With an outdoor entertainment system, you’ll have your own personal oasis in your backyard. Below we outline the components you need to consider when installing an outdoor entertainment system. From a durable outdoor speaker system to an ultra-bright display, here are the best options for your Buffalo, NY home.
The first thing to consider when setting up an outdoor audio video setup is the source for the media you’ll be playing. Most media is consumed via streaming nowadays because streaming devices give you access to a seemingly unlimited library of movies and TV shows. When enjoying content outdoors, however, you need to ensure you have a strong enough network connection to cover every corner of your outdoor space and carry the bandwidth needed for streaming 4K content. An alternative would be a Blu-ray player or a media server to store your favorite movies and TV shows, so you don’t have to worry about your network connection. In that case, you’ll still need help from a professional to keep those devices safely housed indoors with a strong cabling infrastructure carrying the signal to your outdoor components.
Another essential component of an outdoor audio video setup is the display. Choose a tv specifically created to be used outside, as indoor televisions are not made to weather the conditions or be visible in sunlight. The most popular choice is an outdoor television from specialized manufacturers like SunbriteTV. Enjoy a movie by the pool or create an outdoor cinema to watch your favorite videos under the stars. If you decide a projector is the best fit for your project, make sure that you choose one that has a lot of brightness and contrast, as most are made to be enjoyed in a dark room, not outside..
The right outdoor speakers are what ties together your outdoor entertainment setup. You will need speakers specifically designed for outdoor use since indoor speakers are inherently sensitive to rain. A good speaker system won't just function as the audio system for your display, but also as a source of music for your pool parties and evening dinner parties.
Sonance has several lines of speakers created for the outdoors that are scalable and stylish, blending seamlessly into your natural landscape. Their Sonarray series is composed of easily scalable landscape speakers that make it easy to cover all your outdoor spaces with stellar sound quality.
