1. Listening habits
If you will use this system for just listening to music, watching some movies occasionally or are just looking out to beef up the volume output of your TV a pair of speakers or a soundbar is perfect for you. And if you are looking for a bit of bass just add a subwoofer to it and you’re good to go. It is not always necessary to have huge speakers to deliver mind blowing music.

2. Reviewing the space
This is a very crucial factor to look out for in deciding the kind of home audio system you should go for. The big blunt factor is ‘how big your room is’. The additional factors are if your room is crowded with furniture and if you are going to place them in furniture. The more a room is open and less furniture clad the better is the sound. To be crisp and precise about it, small rooms are not suitable for large music systems as they tend to flood the room with bass and leads to muddy sound. On the other hand large rooms with small speaker systems make the sound seem localized, whereas larger ones give you a more seamless and immersive experience.
3. Features and price
Considering you are out to buy a home audio system it can safely be assumed that you have saved up for it. It’s an important investment as what you go for is likely to stay with you for a while. The important factors that you should compare across models in your budget to get the best bang for your buck are power rating, Peak Music power output (PMPO), impedance and connectivity options like Bluetooth, wifi, aux, usb, and memory cards. Make sure that you buy from a standard brand or ones with a good reputation. They provide high quality materials that stand the test of time without compromising on the high quality, immersive sound experience for the optimum experience in home entertainment for you and your family.
