We love home theater and multichannel audio, but at its core should be a solid 2-channel stereo playback system. It’s about the ritual of listening to music. Pulling out the tangible CD or vinyl record, cleaning it, placing it in the transport or on the platter. Good stereo playback can rival most big box multichannel systems, and get you closer to the original performance. In the end, isn’t that what it’s about? Connecting you with the music.
These days it’s easier than ever to incorporate a good 2-channel stereo set up into a home theater environment. Many integrated amplifiers and stereo playback systems have a “Home Theater Bypass,” that allows you to enjoy a hybrid of both stereo and multichannel, while allowing you to put your best dollars towards the core 2-channel setup.
At Stereotypes Audio, we are made up of 2-channel purists as well as multiichannel enthusiasts. Whatever your preference, we can help you plan out your system, and advise you on the best way to spend your dollars. Some may go for tubes, some for solid state. Some system plans may be assembled all at once, or planned for over multiple years. We want you to have the best possible sound, for today AND tomorrow. A good amplifier or speaker will always be a good amplifier or speaker, period. It’s future proof with no ‘planned obsolescence’ like so many products. It’s like an investment in a family heirloom. Something to enjoy for generations.
