Get the most out of your hi-fi audio system at home with a dedicated listening room


Are you a self-diagnosed audiophile who enjoys nothing more than listening to new music in your spare time? If so, you may enjoy having a dedicated listening room in your home.


A dedicated listening room is just that — a space designed for the sole purpose and pleasure of listening to and analyzing amazing music. Room design is simple, consisting of little more than a hi-fi audio system, seating, and personal touches. It’s a place you can go to be undisturbed by TVs, home appliances, or conversation.

High-End Audio Equipment


A hi-fi audio system is the star of the show. Listening rooms generally use a two-channel system with a left-channel speaker and a right-channel speaker. The speakers are placed equidistant within the room parameters and from the seating. Setup also includes a preamplifier and an amplifier to power the sound. The result is robust, dynamic, high-end audio that replicates how the sound was originally recorded and meant to be experienced.


The Electronic Concepts team will help you choose a pair of high-quality speakers from leading brands like Bowers & Wilkins, Magico, and McIntosh. We’ll connect your source components so that you can listen to streaming services, vinyl, CDs, and other music sources.


Acoustic Treatments


Many rooms aren’t designed with the ideal acoustic environment in mind right off the bat. Room acoustics are affected by everything from the area’s size and shape, the construction materials of the walls, ceiling, and floor, and the type and amount of furniture in the room. If reflected sound isn’t controlled, your audio experience will be filled with uneven sound, echoes, and distortions.


Our team of experts will outfit your listening room with absorption and diffusion treatments to balance the sound environment and ensure that you receive a clear, even listening experience every time. We can also install soundproofing materials to prevent sound from disrupting other areas of the house.


Comfortable Seating and Customization


Your comfort is a critical aspect of the listening room experience. Our team will help you source comfortable recliners, sectionals, or sofas with good back and neck support so that you can enjoy hours of uninterrupted listening without feeling achy. We can also install smart, dimmable lighting and motorized shades to set the ambience for your listening mood. Many of our clients enjoy adding plants, artwork, throw pillows, and other personal touches that make the room feel peaceful.
