How to Choose Bookshelf Speakers for Your Computer
Trying with the fly to pick up computer speakers for their technical specifications is a direct way to feel slightly inferior. A normal person, in order to fall into a stupor, it is enough that he is offered to choose from ten types, indicated by numbers without any explanation. Let us see what types of multimedia acoustics exist, and how to choose speakers for the computer from all this disgrace.
Multimedia acoustics: which bookshelf speakers are best for your computer?
Multimedia speakers are designed to reproduce sound – and the higher the quality with which they do it, the better. They can be connected not only to the computer output of the sound card, but also to other playback devices – from a DVD player to an iPod.
Computer acoustics is a component set of two or more speakers and a power amplifier, which can be built into the casing of one of the speakers or separate. Depending on the number of components in the system, multimedia columns are divided into ten types, which are denoted by numbers, for example, 1.0 or 5.1.
The first digit indicates the number of columns in the system. In system 2.1 there are two of them.
The second number indicates the presence or absence of a subwoofer – a special column for reproducing low frequencies. Again, in system 2.1 there is a subwoofer – the music on such speakers will be with deep, saturated bass.
What speakers are designed specifically for the computer? As a rule, multimedia speakers of types 1.0, 2.0, 2.1, 3.1 and 5.1 are sold in computer stores. Tell you more about each of them.
Types of wireless bookshelf speakers
Wireless speakers Wi-Fi. This is one of the newest speakers in this category. But while they are not at the peak of popularity. After all, many devices of the “old” format without Wi-Fi sensors. And yet, for devices that support this feature, such speakers are the best option.
Wireless speakers. The principle of operation of this model is the same as that of stationary cordless phones. A radio transmitter and unused frequencies are used to transmit the signal. Such technology is the simplest and at the same time one of the most effective. Distances up to 100 meters are an excellent radius for the operation of such speakers. However, from time to time mini-malfunctions can occur – signal distortion and far from the best sound quality.
Bluetooth speakers for computer
Work radius is about 30 meters. They can also be used anywhere. This model is most often used, since there are almost no models of phones and laptops without a bluetooth system. But with stationary computers there can be an incident. In order to avoid the latter, before buying speakers, be sure to check your computer for the Bluetooth function. If this is not the case, then you can simply buy a bluetooth transmitter.
