When is the best time to buy a sound system? Before or after renovation?

When is the best time to buy a sound system? Before or after renovation?

The average Singaporean flat may not be big, but that shouldn’t stop you from building your dream home cinema. Thankfully home audiovisual equipment has evolved since the early days of bulky component stereos. Here are 3 questions to consider before you can have your own immersive “All Around You” experience.

1. Should I plan for my home audio before or after renovation?

Planning before renovation would make sure that your home is clutter free. You can already plan for the speakers of the right size and shape and integrate them into your interior design. Instead of struggling to fit your dream system’s sound only in an afterthought.

Not to mention, cable management would be better planned out with enough sockets and storage in the right location. For a list of the typical ways to neaten and manage cables, check out this comprehensive guide from Crutchfield.

2. My renovation plans are confirmed. How can I still build a dream home theater?

Yes, of course! We’d recommend Sonos speakers in this case because they have a modular system. This means that you can start small and build your setup as you go. Everything works seamlessly together over WiFi. Start with one speaker and simply add more when you're ready.

3. How do I know if my home is ideal for a stereo system or a surround sound system?
