(NC) Many of us miss live concert experiences, especially as the weather warms up. Fortunately, creating a night of entertainment in your own home is easier than you think — here’s how:

1.The right sound system. It may sound like a no-brainer, but putting serious thought into your speaker system and arrangement will make a world of difference.

You don’t need to rattle the rafters, just fill the space with sound. Prioritize clarity over power and rely on the spread of surround speakers to create a truly immersive experience.

Or, if your space is limited, consider a smart speaker, which offers a quality listening experience in a compact package.

2.The right furnishings. Even the most thought-out sound system won’t be at its best in a bare room. The key to great sound is to have lots of soft surfaces to absorb sound rather than reflect it. A carpet beats out hardwood and curtains beat out blinds. You can even set up a curtain rod on the wall to quickly convert a hard surface into a soft one for listening.

A comfy couch will absorb sound and you, as you lie back and enjoy the music.

3.The right tunes. Even if your setup doesn’t change, your tastes and mood always will. Give yourself the greatest variety of music you can with the SiriusXM streaming app. It’s ad-free, so nothing gets between you and the music.

You can now also set up personalized radio stations for your favourite artist, and even watch exclusive in-studio performances. The only thing left to do will be to lean back and enjoy.
