Experience High-End Audio Like Never Before

When you are considering investing in a 2-channel audio system for your home, one of the most important factors you will consider is sound quality. Not only will you want to play music from lossless sources such as CD players or HiFi streaming services, but you also will want audio components that equally reproduce that studio-level sound quality.

So how can you ensure you’re experiencing your music the way it’s supposed to be heard in your own Philadelphia-area home? That’s where Focal audio comes in. There’s a reason Focal is a leading speaker brand in two-channel audio systems – and in this blog, we’ll go through why its speakers are perfect for your living space.

Why Focal?

Founded in 1979, Focal has been among the world’s leading speaker manufacturers; dedicated to producing products that are designed with accurate audio reproduction in mind. In fact, the France-based company – celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2019 – is one of the only audio manufacturers to continually invest in acoustic research; proving its dedication to the high-fidelity listening experience.

Focal speakers are focused on delivering unrivaled sound reproduction for listeners; and for 2-channel listeners, that means bringing the studio-recording quality of your favorite albums right into your living room or dedicated listening space.   

Various Speakers to Try Out


At our Hi-Fi Sales showroom, you can check out three of the world’s leading Focal speakers on display and demo for yourself which one is the right fit for your home. Below, we’ve listed out what makes each one a worthy selection for anywhere in your living space:

  • The Sopra N2: For a three-way loudspeaker that brings together audio dynamics and harmonic richness, the Sopra N2 (pictured above) is ideal. This speaker takes high-end performance and enhances it entirely. Its contemporary and compact design lets it blend it in seamlessly to your existing décor and layout. The Sopra N2 has the best midrange drivers, equipped with Focal’s Neutral Inductance Circuit (NIC) technology that stabilizes the magnetic field to bring precision and detail to its audio reproduction. The drivers also have a Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) that reduces distortion and moves in opposition of the resonance frequency – delivering a powerful audio punch to you in any room-size.
  • The Aria 926: This three-way floorstanding speaker is both affordable and easy-to-install, all while delivering a top-quality audio performance every time. The Aria’s timeless yet modern design helps it fit right in with many areas of your home, and its sound quality goes back to the very basics of acoustics that music-lovers know and love. With its Flax sandwich cone, you’ll hear a natural sound, low coloration, and an enrichened reproduction in its midrange register – plus an all-around stronger bass.
  • The Scala Utopia Evo: Taking high-end audio performance to the next level, the Scala Utopia Evo keeps the best qualities of its previous iterations. And with a name like “Evo” short for evolution, this speaker’s features only improve for the better. Hear any artist’s emotions through every musical note with harmonic distortion reduction in the mid-range register. These speakers also have the Focal NIC technology and TMD suspension that only enhance its audio quality. The Scala Utopia Evo now has bi-amplification, and also makes adjusting your sound to find the perfect timbre and bass power a breeze. Designed to deliver incomparable audio and available in a variety of colors, the Evo can find its place in your home to transform how you listen to your music from here on out.

Experience the Power of Visualint Home Surveillance Systems

If you’re thinking of investing in home surveillance, you know that you have a variety of options available to you. There are smart home security, DIY-install cameras that you can buy online or at a local big-box store. There also are surveillance camera systems that you can install at your home through the help of a professional company; ones that go far beyond the features of store-bought systems.

At Hi-Fi Sales, we are proud to offer homeowners in the Cherry Hill area and throughout the Delaware Valley with some of the world’s best home surveillance cameras. As a local Visualint dealer, we take smart home surveillance to the next level with advanced cameras and video analytics unmatched in the industry.

Want to learn about what makes Visualint home surveillance among the world’s best and how our team at Hi-Fi Sales can install a Visualint system at your local home? Just keep reading below.

SEE ALSO: HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM HI-FI SALES

What is Visualint?

A Visualint camera system takes the concept of home surveillance and completely elevates it. A cutting-edge home surveillance system, Visualint technology includes both fixed and Pan-Tilt-Zoom cameras, as well as a unique live analytics platform that safeguards your property. This is accomplished through camera-to-camera communication and size-based object tracking that reduces false positives by 97%.  

Through Visualint’s advanced hardware and software, you then can receive instant alerts directly sent to your email address or smartphone whenever the system is triggered. This allows you or someone monitoring your system to take quick and necessary action should an intruder ever trespass into your property.

What Makes Visualint Home Surveillance Unique?

Unlike other home surveillance cameras, a Visualint system combines its own unique cameras with an infrastructure designed for smart, enterprise-level monitoring.

When a Visualint dealer such as Hi-Fi Sales designs and installs your system, you can program custom boundaries that can define your surveillance system’s borders. When those boundaries are breached, a Visualint system springs into action; camera-to-camera communication also ensures that when an object leaves one camera’s field of view, it enters another’s within your system.

This elevated level of surveillance and inter-camera communication happens instantly within a Visualint ecosystem. Receive alerts for everything from packages arriving at your front door to newly parked cars near your home to even when a person crosses your pre-defined property boundaries.

That’s not all a Visualint system can do; it even can enhance your existing smart home setup, as well.

Visualint Residential Integrations

Seamlessly integrating Visualint into the rest of your smart home automation system can be a breeze with the help of the Hi-Fi Sales team.

Visualint’s virtual sensors that define your property’s perimeters also can integrate with outdoor lights, for example. Perhaps your car enters the driveway after an evening out. When your Visualint system detects your car has entered your property’s boundaries, outdoor lights can turn on, guiding you to the front door.

Plan on welcoming guests for a Friday night get-together? With a Visualint system defining a zone for your front door, whenever guests arrive within your predefined hours, you can program your system to automatically play music through your outdoor speakers to greet in style.

As you can tell, Visualint is more than just a typical home surveillance system. It uses its state-of-the-art infrastructure to ensure your family is safe and that you add convenience to your day-to-day routine, as well.

Want to find out more about Visualint home surveillance cameras for your home in the Delaware Valley?

If you’re a music enthusiast, you might have previously been hesitant about opting for a wireless multi-room audio system. Sure, there are plenty of benefits to being able to listen to your favorite tracks from anywhere in your house. But, ultimately, sound quality from most wireless speakers has been less than optimal.

Bowers & Wilkins speakers, though, have changed the game. With its brand-new Formation Suite, B&W now has matched the luxury of high-fidelity audio with the convenience of wireless sound systems.

In this blog, we’ll go through what this new wireless line has to offer and how it maintains Bowers & Wilkins’ commitment to reproducing studio-quality sound in your own house.

Formation Suite: An Auditory Experience Like No Other

A leading home audio brand since its inception back in 1966, Bowers & Wilkins consistently has been among the forefront of innovation in producing high-fidelity speaker systems. Announced in April 2019, the Formation Suite continues trend of invention.

Featuring five distinct wireless products (the Formation Duo, Wedge, Bar, Bass and Audio), the Formation Suite is designed to give discerning music enthusiasts the convenience of a wireless multi-room audio system without worry of a drop in sound quality.

How does B&W accomplish this? In-room speaker synchronization ensures each speaker is in perfect harmony within one-millionth of a second, and a robust mesh network operates separately from your home’s Wi-Fi; ensuring speaker performance isn’t affected by your other internet-connected devices.

Below, we’ll take a dive into each Formation Suite product that makes up the system. Check out how each component creates a home audio speaker system that surpasses the rest.

Formation Suite Technologies
  • Formation Duo: Duo speakers bring you 800 Series Diamond performance via a wireless, bookshelf solution. This 96/24 bit high-resolution system streams top-notch sound and delivers an immersive experience every time. Its speakers have the same carbon domed tweeter-on-top design as the B&W 700 Series, as well as the Continuum Cone tech from B&W’s 800 Series. The Duo’s quick setup and easy-to-use interface make it a breeze to install and get your music playing immediately in any room you put them in.
  • Formation Wedge: The Wedge delivers a 96/24 bit high-resolution stereo sound performance from its uniquely 120-degree elliptical shape and casing. With the Wedge’s decoupled double-dome tweeter from the 600 Series, your audio will flood and fill up every last inch of your room. The speaker includes sound drivers and an integrated subwoofer.
  • Formation Bar: Formation’s three-channel soundbar features nine optimized drive units and a center channel that ensure your sound streams directly to you with excellent audio performance. The soundbar’s sleek and compact design makes it the perfect fit for your living room or media room setup.
  • Formation Audio: With Formation Audio, you can turn your passive speaker system into a part of your multi-room wireless system and stream 96/24 bit resolution audio to it. This solution easily synchronizes to other Formation products, and lets you connect your analog devices to your Formation speakers.
  • Formation Bass: Pair the Formation Bass subwoofer with other Formation speakers to create the ultimate immersive audio experience from a wireless solution. B&W’s Dynamic EQ and opposed dual driver technology reduces distortion, and a Class D amplifier contributes to a powerful bass performance that elevates any music or media content.

Developing an MDU? Differentiate Your Properties With These Technologies.

If you’re a developer for apartment buildings, condominiums or other residential communities, then you know that to draw in potential buyers, it’s all about making your properties stand out above the others. But with limited areas that you can customize with everyone in mind, what can you do to elevate your MDUs from the competition?

One way to do so is through the amenities you can offer through your buildings’ common areas. With spring underway here in the Philadelphia area, one way we recommend to set your properties apart is through offering cutting-edge outdoor entertainment solutions – such as outdoor sound systems or outdoor TVs.

When you upgrade your properties’ outdoor common spaces with amenities every resident can enjoy, you are creating spaces that make your properties unique and appealing to buyers or prospective tenants. In this blog, we go through the top features you can add to your outdoor areas and how to set the technology up so that your future residents get the most out of them.

Want to learn more about attracting more buyers or tenants to your properties through outdoor entertainment solutions? Just keep reading below!

Outdoor Speakers for Community Events and Parties

When residents can turn up the music, they’re going to appreciate the area that much more. By bringing an incredible outdoor sound system to your community’s outdoor common areas, such as a pool or patio, you’ll be elevating the space and cultivating an environment that can entertain everyone.

Residents can connect their smart devices to the system so that they can play their favorite music while grilling for friends and family or play relaxing melodies as they swim in the pool or hang out in the jacuzzi. And as the sound system will be easy-to-use, they can simply use a wall-mounted touchscreen panel to change tunes or peruse through different albums or playlists.

By installing dedicated outdoor speakers throughout your properties’ outdoor common spaces, you can create the ideal surround sound setup that covers every spot residents will be spending time in. Someone could be standing by the grills, lingering by the pool, or lounging on a lawn chair – with a well-designed outdoor sound system, you can ensure coverage throughout the entire area without worrying about sound dispersion or dead zones.

One of the best benefits of opting for an outdoor speaker system is that it is designed to withstand the elements. Make sure you opt for outdoor speakers that are weatherproof and can withstand the wide range of temperatures we in the Philadelphia are susceptible to.

4K Outdoor TVs for Movie Nights

Imagine offering a space that everyone can enjoy a movie night under the stars or the big Phillies game together. With a dedicated outdoor TV, you can set up community movie nights or tailgates for residents to attend. You’ll strengthen the community, and give them a chance to see just how amazing it is to watch media outdoors in the same quality as they would inside.

4K outdoor TVs deliver that same bright and vivid image without having the sun’s intense rays affect their screens. Anti-glare properties won’t have everyone straining to see or pausing the film to wait for the clouds to cover the sun. Choose from TVs that are designed for shaded applications or even TVs that are meant to be watched in full sunlight.

Give residents the ability to enjoy the beautiful weather while choosing what they want to watch – whether it’s a popular movie or their favorite sports team. By offering outdoor entertainment amenities in your MDU’s common areas, your tenants will feel right at home – which is the ultimate goal.

Upgrading your MDU common areas with these outdoor audio and video features shows potential tenants or buyers what their future life in your properties can be. Help your residential communities stand out among the rest.

Boost Your Home Surveillance System With Cutting-Edge Video Analytics

We know that your home’s safety is important – whether you’re at work, on vacation or just hanging out in your house with your family. It takes superior technology to ensure your living space stays well-protected at every hour of the day and night.

Of course, if you own a home surveillance system, you have the ability to view live footage of every corner of your property. But what if you could make your system intelligent? How can you take your home surveillance cameras to the next level? If you want to own some of the most cutting-edge home surveillance technology at your Cherry Hill-area property, we have a clear recommendation for your family: IC Realtime’s ella. 

In this blog, we’ll introduce you to ella and what this product from one of the world’s leading home surveillance manufacturers can do for you and your peace of mind.

Want to learn more about this excellent security solution? Keep on reading below.

SEE ALSO: HOME SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS CAN KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR ENTIRE PROPERTY

What Is ella, and What Makes It Stand Apart?

Ella is a program that works with your home surveillance cameras to better find exactly what you’re looking for in captured footage.

It’s a real-time search engine that uses algorithmic deep learning tools to narrow in and recognize faces, colors, cars, and any other objects your home surveillance cameras might record. You can type in a search word, such as “blue car,” and ella can search through the videos to find every instance it shows up.

You’ll reduce so much time spent searching through clips of footage with the ability to find what you’re looking for within mere seconds. View live footage or search for previously recorded clips; have any part of your whole home in your sight at any moment – there won’t be a single area that goes unseen.

How Does It All Work?

Once you’ve installed IC Realtime’s Box product on your camera network, ella can then turn your video footage into metadata and send that to a protected server.

Its deep learning tools then work to turn that metadata into searchable keywords and phrases that’ll match what you’re looking for if and when you type them into ella’s search engine.

With the ella app installed on your smart device, you’ll be able to use it like a regular search engine on the internet. The app’s easy-to-use interface and casual language make it hassle-free for you to find precisely what you want to see.

Search for previously recorded footage or view live feeds of your home surveillance cameras, as well.

Which Home Surveillance Cameras Does ella Work With?

You can use ella with any home surveillance cameras that support standard H.264 RTSP video streams; you’re not just limited to IC Realtime’s security cameras. Whether you’re using ella with one single camera or eight video streams, the platform is completely scalable.

As ella is only available through a professional installation, we at Hi-Fi Sales are more than happy to work with you to install ella at your Cherry Hill-area home. We can apply ella to your existing home surveillance system or build one entirely customized to your property!

Learn How Smart Technologies Add Value to Homes

If you’re a real estate developer or builder, you know that amenities are a huge factor in presenting and selling your properties. And now more than ever, bringing a top-notch home automation installation to your Philadelphia-area properties is set to draw in potential homebuyers.

You might not be an expert on smart home technology, and that’s OK. You don’t have to work alone in delivering home automation solutions to your properties. By partnering with our professional team of experts at Hi-Fi Sales, installing these smart solutions all throughout your new-construction properties will be a breeze.

In this blog, we’ll dive into what various smart technologies can do for a living space and why you as a real estate developer should be paying attention. Boost any house’s value – find out more by reading on below.

SEE ALSO: INTERIOR DESIGNERS: WHY WORK WITH LUTRON LIGHTING AND SHADES?

Present Any Home in the Best Light

Smart home lighting control is one of the most in-demand technologies from potential homebuyers. The 2018 Coldwell Banker Real Estate Smart Home Marketplace Survey reports that 63 percent of potential homebuyers want a smart lighting system pre-installed in their new property.

So, what does that mean for you? By featuring a smart lighting control system as part of your new-construction properties, you can attract homebuyers by providing a turnkey solution for an in-demand home amenity.

Homeowners increasingly want the ability to control their home’s lights from the convenience of their personal smart devices. Smart lighting systems allow homeowners to control every light in their house from a centralized source (such as a smartphone application), giving them the ability to dim the living room lights or turn on lights in the kitchen, foyer and dining room with just the press of a single button.

We at Hi-Fi Sales are a leading installer of smart lighting systems here in the Delaware Valley, meaning that you can leave the installation to a team of experts.

Show How Safe and Secure the Home Is

Smart security features and technologies are a major priority for many homebuyers. According to the same Coldwell survey, 66 percent of homebuyers want smart cameras, and 63 percent want smart locks preinstalled in their new homes. They want to keep their families and properties safe, so by showing that a house is secure with these solutions, it’s more likely to bring in buyers.

Having strategically-placed surveillance cameras throughout the property shows that the cameras cover every last corner, whether the homeowners are there or away. They can check in on their homes from anywhere with an internet connection right on their smartphone, watching live videos or saving captured footage for later.

With smart locks pre-installed, as well, homeowners can go beyond securing their homes with just a key, with remote access and personalized entry codes limiting access. This could be an attractive selling point for your properties.

 

Of course, that’s not all a home automation installation can include. With your properties prewired for home theaters, surround sound systems, whole-home audio and video distribution and more, you can add value to your properties by giving homebuyers ready-to-install spaces, if they desire those in their new home.

The greatest part about investing in a home automation installation for your properties is that you won’t have to stress about the technical side of things. Our professional team guarantees that every last thing in the installation process will be taken care of entirely so that you can focus solely on your design, building, and layout plans.

Hi-Fi Sales will be there for all your needs. Feel free to give us a call or contact us here to schedule a no-obligation consultation with our team. We’d love to hear from you!

How a Commercial AV System Boosts Your Company’s Productivity

As an office manager or a business executive, you’re always focused on your company’s bottom line. You want your employees to be productive and for your office space to be conducive to overall success throughout the company.

Out of all the office upgrades available, one often overlooked possibility is an office-wide audio video distribution system. Just what are the benefits to this type of system for your office in the Philadelphia area?

We dive into all the features and technologies in this blog. Keep reading on below to learn more.

SEE ALSO: CREATE THE IDEAL WORK ATMOSPHERE AT YOUR COMPANY

Conference Room Meetings and Presentations

A distributed audio video solution for your office can allow for messages to be spread throughout your entire workspace, but it also can include upgrades for the most important spaces in your office – such as your conference room or boardroom.

Giving a presentation or hosting an important meeting with employees or top clients can already be nerve-wracking. So, imagine your A/V system taking charge and helping set the scene, eliminating time wasted getting technology to cooperate.

Pressing just a single button can turn on your projector and lower the projection screen so that ready to go before you even begin a meeting. Integrating the rest of your room’s commercial automation features, like motorized shades, lighting, and climate control, into your A/V system will also help prep the room for whatever the meeting.

Crystal-clear audio through surround sound speakers means you won’t continually have to ask a client or remote employee to repeat themselves, and HD or 4K projectors deliver vivid video that won’t be riddled with glitches and buffering when coupled with a strong internal network. Additionally, you can add top-of-the-line video conferencing equipment to ensure your company delivers on the professional image that is so important to your business.

Make Planning Easier

An audio video distribution system helps make planning your day-to-day business operations easier than ever. Set up screens outside conference rooms that say who and when a meeting will be taking place, and let others sign up for various time slots throughout the workday.

You can make announcements over speakers that are installed throughout the building, letting employees know if a company-wide meeting is starting or even if there are cookies in the refreshments area.

With huddle rooms, you’ll have smaller conference room setup areas that employees can use when the other larger ones are taken. These can have A/V components within them as well, and work for brainstorming or mini-conference calls and meetings.

Distribute Messages (and Music) Effectively

One of the best ways to spread messages throughout the office is through making the most of the connected screens and speakers within your distributed A/V system.

Use your TVs to display digital signage that promotes events or spreads important information or show live TV coverage of a network that is closely related to your business’ operations.

As mentioned in the section above, as well, you can use your distributed speaker system to spread important messages related to office operations. But if you also find that your employees react positively music, you also can have speakers throughout the office play music that inspires your employees to be productive.

Controlling your audio video system can be effortless, as well. From a user interface that can be featured on an exclusive tablet or a wall-mounted touchscreen panel, you can control every connected speaker and display in your office, changing music services, TV channels or digital signage with ease.

Want to learn more about how an audio video distribution solution can elevate your Philadelphia-area office space? Hi-Fi Sales is here to help.

Make the Most of Your Internet-Connected Smart Home Technologies

Think about how many smart devices and technologies you have in your home that everyone uses on a daily basis. From your computers, tablets, and phones to smart TVs, video and music streaming services to even your thermostat and lights perhaps, you most likely are using a lot of internet bandwidth throughout the day.

To keep these technologies working at their best, you need a home network that’s up for the job – one that goes beyond just single the modem/router your internet service provider (ISP) brings to the table.

In this blog, we’ll dive into the top-notch home network services that Hi-Fi Sales offers. Keep reading below to see why and how our team can upgrade your network connection and improve how well smart home in the Philadelphia area runs every day.

SEE ALSO: 3 CLEAR SIGNS YOU NEED A HOME NETWORKING UPGRADE

Why a Professional Home Network Installation?

So, why might you need an upgraded home network – and why is a professional one the way to go? It turns out that your home network takes on a lot of work when you use your various smart technologies throughout the day.

The more people in your home and the more who are streaming videos and using the internet, the more you are using your network’s available bandwidth. This will leave you and your family stuck with buffering, lagging, and overall – a delay in all your technology’s performance.

During our professional home network installations, our team coordinates with your ISP to increase the amount of bandwidth your home network can handle. But what about if your internet speeds are not the problem – rather WiFi reception is?


The router your ISP provides only has a limited coverage zone. If your router is placed on the bottom floor of the house in one corner, the chances are you won’t enjoy optimal internet connection on the top floor of the house and the opposite side of where the router is. With a professional home network installation, you can rest assured that your connection will go beyond just one router – and one that is more robust, safe, and secure as well. We accomplish this through a variety of techniques, including the installation of wireless access points and connecting as many devices as possible to wired, Ethernet ports.

What Does the Installation Process Involve?

Your network upgrade ensures that you have a stable and reliable internet connection in every area of your home. So, whether you go with a completely wired system or not, our team makes sure your network reaches every corner of your property. We lay down the proper wiring infrastructure and set up wireless access points where they’re needed.

We also install necessary firewalls and other precautions to boost your network’s security. You can keep your peace of mind knowing that your personal data and information is well-protected. From slow-working technologies to identity theft – our installation prevents a variety of your worries.

When the installation is through, our team checks that everything is working properly for the long-run and that all your smart technologies are functioning effectively and efficiently on the network.

We want to make sure that your network wiring and systems are set for years down the road, so we provide maintenance testing and check-ins. Our home network services only begin with the installation. We will consistently take care of your network connection and keep your smart home running smoothly for the near and distant future.

Want to learn more about our home network services and installations throughout the Philadelphia area? Give us a call at (856) 751-1100, chat live with us below or contact us here to schedule a no-obligation consultation with our team.

Take Your Entertainment Space to Another Level for the Big Game

An Ambient Light-Rejecting Screen

Sometimes all it takes to ruin an amazing play or moment of suspenseful action is awful glares from indoor lights running across your screen. That’s why ambient light-rejecting screens are so crucial for your home theater system.

We highly recommend the Black Diamond ambient light-rejecting projector screen from Screen Innovations, the first to reject ambient light from all sides.

The Black Diamond screen has a 900% better contrast than matte white and gray screens due to its nine layers of optical filters that make up the screen, which reject 85% of the ambient light in your theater space.

These optical filters not only reject ambient lighting but also prevent this reflected light from flowing onto the surrounding walls, floors, and ceiling. You’ll be completely immersed in the action; the screen and game staying as your only focus – as it should be.

In addition to the Black Diamond screen, we also recommend Screen Innovations’ Slate screen material and SnapAV’s ambient light-rejecting Dragonfly screens.

A Projector that Delivers a Crystal-Clear Image

It’s rare to find a top-quality movie projector for your home theater that falls under $5,000, but Sony has presented just that with the VPL-VW295ES, a 4K projector. Through delivering 4K-native resolution that offers four times as many pixels as standard HD with 8.8 million, this projector makes you feel like you’re right on the field with the players.

You’ll see every play and interaction in the game with 1,500 lumens of brightness, bringing you a vivid and vibrant image at all times. The projector makes installation in your room’s size easy as well. It has a 2.06x motorized zoom and a wide lens shift range, which lets you adjust the projector up to 85% vertically and 31% horizontally. You’ll never again struggle to get just the right angle for your media display.

Immersive Surround Sound

Incredible sound for the big game shouldn’t come at the cost of cluttering up your tailgate space with large, obtrusive audio equipment. That’s why Origin Acoustics’ in-wall and in-ceiling architectural speakers are ideal for your home theater system.

These speakers are virtually invisible, going unnoticed as part of your wall or ceiling. Only a micro-perforated grille will show on the surface, and it can be made any color that you want to match your existing décor and wall colors.

These speakers still deliver an unparalleled quality of sound, with low bass tones and sleek, refined details in every audio performance.
