How to choose the best speakers for your New Jersey Home Theater or Media Room

Leon Custom Speakers Deliver Great Sound and Beautiful Aesthetics
Some people ask us to build them extensive and elaborate home theaters, with recliner seating, projectors, and elaborate speaker systems. We, of course, love to do that and strive to deliver what the client wants with the best components and integration we can supply within their budget. Other clients, however, don’t want a dedicated home theater room or just don't have the extra space. They still want an exceptional theater experience, but it may be in a living or family room that also serves other purposes. In many cases, those rooms aren't suitable for projectors, because of aesthetic considerations, unsuitable mounting locations, or simply complexity. In the same vein, the soundbar has become ultra-popular for similar reasons. They are easy to install and use with TVs, can be wall mounted, and can deliver multichannel surround sound in an aesthetically-pleasing form. But there are soundbars, and there are soundbars. As in most audio products, there is a low end and a high end. What does the uncompromising homeowner do when they want excellent sound quality, thoughtful design, and aesthetics that fit their décor and sense of style? For those situations, Bravo AV works with Leon, a maker of customized speakers that look as beautiful as they sound. In this blog, we’re going to cover how Leon Horizon and Profile soundbars integrate discreetly with any décor while offering audiophile quality sound other soundbars just can’t match. Ready to see how you can have a sleek media room design with multichannel sound and not sacrifice audio quality in your Chatham-area space? Read on to learn more.
SEE ALSO: Everything Media Rooms Art, Audio, and Design First, a bit of background on Leon. They are a team of artists, designers, engineers, and craftsmen dedicated to handcrafting high-end custom speakers right here in the U.S. They've been in business for over 20 years and their vision is to mix art with audio and design with technology by creating products that integrate seamlessly into the home. Leon offers a full palette of design-driven speakers and technology concealment solutions that are designed to look as good as they sound, with unrivaled capabilities for customization. They also happen to be one of the pioneers of soundbars, so they know how to make this category of speaker sound exceptional. Using premium materials and hand-craftsmanship, they are dedicated to delivering a unique aesthetic and aural experience with all of their products.
Horizon Soundbars Leon’s Horizon soundbars are designed to be mounted horizontally, either above or below the TV depending on the needs of the room. While conventional soundbars from companies like Sony might come in a variety of sizes, Horizon soundbars are custom built to match the exact width of whatever display you choose to have in your media room. If you want the 85-inch Sony, you will get a soundbar that matches not only the size but the look that you want. Grills are hand-stretched using acoustically transparent fabric – just like high-end speakers use – and match the display contours. The customization extends to making sure the soundbar does not block any TV ports or logos if that is necessary. The soundbars can be customized for stereo, center channel only operation, or three front channels for surround setups. The company uses custom-designed drivers that deliver the sound quality and imaging that you usually only get from separate speakers. Profile Series Speakers Similar to the Horizon soundbars, the Profile Series are custom speakers that match the height of the display. When the space is constrained vertically, the Profile is the perfect solution. If you want greater front channel separation, especially in a larger space, these speakers offer a way to flank the screen on either side and also deliver a left-center-right audio array for multichannel applications. With both Horizon and Profile, you get ultimate customizability. The company can match the color of practically any cabinetry or paint, and the cloth grills are hand-dyed to whatever color is desired. Edge Media Frame To complete the look, Leon offers a further way to customize the minimalist media room installation. The Edge Media Frame draws inspiration from mid-century modern furnishings with its clean lines and encases all sides of the display and a matching Horizon soundbar with rich wood finishes. By framing all sides of the display, you can have all wires and TV mounting artfully concealed, creating a beautiful surround that draws attention only to the screen. The Edge media Frame is available in various wood finishes and any custom paint color, so it is easy to match with practically any décor. Like the other Leon products, it is custom built to match the exact dimensions of any TV display, and of course, is made in the U.S. as well.
