How Multi-Room Audio is Turning Your Home into a Musical Adventure

Back in the day, music listening used to be tethered to the physical realm: Disc goes into player, you sit next to player, you listen to player through speakers connected to player. Yawn. That’s pretty much how they did it in the caveman days.

But that’s not the way it is anymore.

With multi-room audio systems, your music is free from the shackles of physical wires and media. Music can follow you throughout your whole house – all wirelessly. Let’s take a look at just what is possible for multi-room audio, and what awesome features you are missing out on.

 

V-v-v-v-v-voice Control

You know who used buttons to control music? The ancient Aztecs.

And sure, the Aztecs were lightyears ahead of their time in a lot of ways, but if you are walking around your house, you don’t really want to be relying on ancient technology, do you? No. of course not. You want to be on the tip of the cutting edge. That’s where the sharp technology is.

Well friend, are you in for a treat. Imagine walking around your entire house, picking what song or playlist to listen to all through voice control.

No, this isn’t some Nostradamus prediction. It’s the reality of today’s multi-room audio systems. Your voice – and Alexa -- is really all you need. Sing away to your heart’s content, and then keep on talking to switch songs. Just tell Alexa “next” or “previous” to switch songs. It’s pitch perfect.

 

One Song to Rule Them All

Maybe you listen to music in the shower. Maybe you love to hear your favorite tunes as you prepare breakfast. Or maybe you have a very busy morning routine, which has you moving in and out of several rooms. Whatever your musical needs look like, wouldn’t it be great if your music could follow you around?

Well, now it can. With a multi-room audio system,  you can set one song to play across every speaker in every room in your set up. Walk seamlessly through your house in your bathrobe as the theme from “Spartacus” plays, and you won’t have to worry about being out of earshot. You’ll be pumped and primed and ready to start the day. 

Of course, picking out which speakers to get isn’t something you have to worry about doing alone. We’ll always be here to help you find the best speaker solution that fits your needs, so give us a call today!

 

Speaker Separation Anxiety

That’s not all that multi-room audio can do for you and your family, however. Let’s take a hypothetical, here. Let’s say the kids want to watch a movie in one room, you have lecture notes you need to listen to, and your partner really wants to listen to yoga jazzercise.

That’s possible. Multi-room audio systems can also break up your audio across multiple rooms, so different people can listen to what they want in each room.

 

These are just the tip of the musical iceberg when it comes to multi-room audio and how it can totally change your life for the better. Give us a call today, and we’ll walk you through all of the different speaker and multi-room audio set up options we have, and help you find one with enough juice to blast music throughout your whole house.
