HOME AUDIO NYC
OUR APPROACH TO HOME AUDIO
Hearing is believing! When it’s played just right, sound has the incredible ability to transport you from your living room to a packed stadium, to the bottom of the ocean – or a galaxy far, far away. Performance is paramount, but so is maintaining your interior design. Have the most luxurious experience with individual room control, high-performance equipment and décor-friendly styles.
When it comes to home audio, we believe that every solution must be completely customized. Because there are different room sizes, purposes and types of sound, there are many different options available including: personal listening with a dynamic set of comfortable headphones, 2 channel HiFi systems for critical listening, surround sound systems for movies buffs, and audio for background music throughout your entire home.
Enjoy your music with convenient control for every room in the home independently and create spaces for relaxation and entertainment alike. Keep reading to learn more about how Christopher William can help you solve home Audio and live your dream life in your dream home!
HOME AUDIO SOLUTIONS
At Christopher William, we know that everyone has different tastes and budgets when it comes to home audio. That's why our experienced team is dedicated to helping you find the best solutions, styles and quality that suits the way you wish to explore your life through sound.
This could mean different types and sizes of speakers, some visible and others invisible. We take into account your habits, interior design considerations and the circumstances around when you may or may not want to hear sound in your home, whether indoors or outdoors. We approach Home Audio from a holistic standpoint to ensure there are no gaps in control, wifi and reliability of equipment.
For those who love watching movies and enjoy getting lost in a story for a few hours, surround sound is the way to go. A good surround sound system will provide immersive sound reproduction and make you feel as if you are right in the middle of the action. This type of setup usually features five speakers (or more) set up around the room with subwoofer and a powerful receiver to power them all.
Whole-home audio systems provide background music throughout every room of your residence. With wireless technologies like those from Sonos, it has never been easier to enjoy your favorite playlists without having to run wires through walls or ceilings. They also work with multiple sources, from internet streaming services to CD players, so that everyone can pick their preferred listening option. No matter what kind of home audio set up you're looking for in your NYC residence, Christopher William is here to help. With our experience and technical expertise, there's no doubt that the perfect system can be identified for your lifestyle.

IN-WALL & IN-CEILING SPEAKERS
By installing in-wall and in-ceiling speakers throughout your home, you can bring music, movies, or any other audio entertainment into every room. You have the option to have the speakers visible or invisible, yet still enjoy crystal clear sound quality.
In-wall speakers are usually installed in dedicated entertainment spaces like home theaters and media rooms since they offer better “directional” sound compared to their in-ceiling counterparts.
Directional speakers provide more focused output which makes it easier to create a truly immersive cinematic experience when watching movies or listening to music.
Another benefit of in-wall speakers is that they're invisible, so you can focus on your entertainment.
In-ceiling speakers are perfect for achieving even coverage throughout your space. Since they’re mounted in the ceiling, they don’t take up any room and will not disrupt the aesthetics of your interior design.
There are many different options and we design where to put the speakers, and what type. For example, in a kitchen or living room where many people gather, it would make sense to go with a higher-end speaker and in smaller rooms like bathrooms, a smaller speaker is just fine.
BOOKSHELF AND STANDING FLOOR SPEAKERS
Bookshelf and standing floor speakers have been around forever and are by far the most popular type of speaker in the audiophile market. When the speaker is put into a calculated enclosure, it produces sound that is detailed, accurate and natural. Like anything else, general design has seen many improvements over the years and advancements in technology have also produced exceptional sound quality, with increased range.
Bookshelf speakers can be easily mounted on walls or placed on shelves, making them ideal for small spaces where floor standing speakers would be too large to fit. Additionally, these smaller models will usually require less power to function at their best, which makes them perfect for office spaces or bedrooms where you want great sound in a compact package..
STANDING FLOOR SPEAKERS
Standing floor speakers offer an unparalleled level of sound quality compared to other speaker types. With bigger drivers and greater power handling capabilities, these speakers can produce a wide range of frequencies from low bass tones all the way up to sweet highs, while still maintaining clarity and accuracy throughout the entire human audible range. They also offer much wider dispersion angles than other types of speakers which further enhances their ability to fill rooms with immersive soundscapes.
Soundbar speakers offer a great way to add big sound to match the big picture of modern televisions. With the increase in television size in recent years, speakers have become much more compact and unable to provide a rich audio experience, which is where soundbars come into play. Companies like Sonos and Leon Speakers have created innovative solutions to give users the best of both worlds – big pictures with incredible soundbars made to custom-fit the width of any television.
Sound bars can either be mounted below, above or on each side of your tv. We also offer custom finishes for sound bars that will blend perfectly in your room décor. We configure, install, and service soundbars and provide wireless control for our clients.
Soundbars improve your viewing experience and are a part of a larger immersive surround-sound experience when coupled with other speakers and subwoofers. Whether you want something small enough for your bedroom or something larger for your living room – we can help you find something perfect for your lifestyle.
Invisible speakers offer a revolutionary way to enjoy music throughout your home. Unlike traditional loudspeakers, Stealth AcousticsTM and others are designed to be completely hidden from view, giving homeowners the freedom to fully appreciate the sound of their music without visually cluttering their living spaces. These speaker systems combine cutting-edge technology with seamless design to ensure that music is presented in its purest form and with maximum impact.
Artistic speakers provide an impressive range of sound in a way that contributes to the overall aesthetic of the interior design.
Speakers can both be pieces of art or actually hidden behind art. The process of installing hidden speakers requires careful planning and precision. We personally assess the layout of your room to determine the initial design. The placement should also take into account any obstacles that could hinder optimal performance, such as furniture or walls. We ensure that there aren’t any unsightly wires, so you can enjoy a great listening experience, while also maintaining a spacious feel.
Outdoor speakers are an excellent way to enjoy music and entertainment in the great outdoors. They provide the perfect ambiance for a gathering, and are also incredibly durable, weatherproof and easy to use.
With modern technology, outdoor speakers offer a wide range of features and capabilities that make it easier than ever before to customize your outdoor listening experience.
Patio speakers can be mounted on walls or hung from trees or pergolas and provide high quality sound without taking up too much space.
Landscape speakers offer more discreet look, but still deliver powerful audio performance without compromising on your property's design esthetics. There are even landscape speaker options with lights, so you can use them as part of your outdoor lighting design.
Whatever style you choose, all of these options will help create a more enjoyable outdoor environment where everyone can relax and enjoy music together.
INDOOR AND OUTDOOR AUDIO CONTROL
For even more convenience, we can power all of your residence's audio with a single and simple controller, or a convenient touchscreen which can be mounted to a wall. It is easier than ever before to control audio throughout your home remotely. With an app on your phone or tablet device, you can adjust volume levels, change tracks or playlists and even sync multiple sets of speakers across different areas indoors and out. You can even remotely control audio across multiple properties. This enables you to create any type of atmosphere you desire, while still benefiting from the highest quality sound available today.
