  1. Improving the acoustics of your Home Theatre

    Want to achieve better sound quality from your Hi-Fi or Home Theatre?

    Before you go out and drop a couple of grand on a new amp or speakers have you thought about your listening room? Most of the time, significant gains in sound quality can be achieved for little or no cost by simply playing with speaker placement and your room’s acoustics. For a start, every speaker is designed to go in a certain “position” in the room. For stereo speakers for example this is usually 50cm or more from the wall behind the speaker and around 1m from a side wall to achieve the best results. Most of the time your speaker’s user manual should be a good guide to placement. Try and get them as close as possible to the recommended then play with moving them around a little till you find the spot where you like the sound the best.

  6. Meet the Team - Shaun

    Call me Shauno. Together with my lovely wife I’m the founder and owner of Selby Acoustics.

    I started Selby Acoustics in 2003, part time, working from home while I was still working full time at Bunning’s. My whole career had been in retail and my dream was to own a Hi Fi store one day. Thank god the internet came along, it was a great way for a small business to get started and I saw it as a perfect opportunity to get my Hi Fi business up and running and create an online store based on traditional retail customer service levels.

  8. Not enough inputs on your TV? Here's the answer.

    You don't need to spend a fortune to make your life a little easier.

    Using a Home Entertainment Control Centre, gives you lots of additional audio and video inputs, so you can connect several different source devices (eg: DVD player, VCR, BluRay player, video game consoles, etc) to the switch box, and then connect the switch box to your TV. Then you can easily switch between your devices, either with the remote control or with the buttons on the switch box! No need to struggle behind your TV to disconnect and reconnect cables to get the right device working!
