If you love listening to music, you might already know about the possibilities of whole-house audio. But what if you haven’t considered it previously?
Imagine if you could begin listening to your favorite playlist as you wake up in the morning, only for that same music to follow you through dedicated speakers in the master bathroom, the hallway and even the kitchen.
Or, what if you could listen to audio from the big Utah or BYU football game throughout the house, so you never miss a moment of the action?
The idea of featuring a multi-room speaker system isn’t just to elevate your day-to-day lifestyle; it’s also perfect for enhancing get-togethers by inspiring the ideal atmosphere.
But where do you begin the process? There are a variety of choices for whole-house audio, from cheap to elaborate and more. In this blog, we’ll explore the pros and cons of each.
Consider this the starter’s guide to multi-room audio for your home in the Morgan, Utah area. Just keep reading below to find out more.
Simple Wireless Audio Systems
One of the most convenient options for achieving a whole-house audio setup is through the purchase of several wireless, plug-and-play speakers.
This solution not only is one of the most affordable options available to homeowners, but it also requires the least amount of interior overhaul. After all, there’s no need for wiring.
A wireless speaker system connects through your home network, ensuring that speakers in different rooms can simultaneously play the same music. (You can control which speakers are playing your preferred music through an easy-to-maneuver smartphone or tablet application.)
You also can move those speakers as you please – giving you increased flexibility in how you can enjoy your speakers compared to a wired or hybrid system.
But the fact that a wireless speaker system utilizes your home network can pose significant drawbacks, as well. If you’re looking for a multi-room speaker system that delivers high-performance audio, a solely wireless setup that relies on your network signal can struggle with relaying every intricate detail of uncompressed tracks.
If audio quality is your No. 1 priority, a wireless speaker system might not deliver the performance you demand from your multi-room setup. Luckily, there are other options available to you.
Hybrid and Wired Speaker Systems
At AVWORX, our multi-room audio installations always are customized to the homeowner’s specific needs.
Sometimes, a wireless speaker system might work best for your property. Our team can help with installing and preparing your system for you to begin using.
Other times, though, you might have the flexibility and budget to invest in an expansive multi-room speaker system that can comprise both wired and wireless components.
The drawback of using a wired speaker system, of course, is that you need the proper wiring in place – and that might require our team working with you to prepare your home’s interior (and potentially your backyard, if you are interested in outdoor speakers) for that.
Even if they’re less mobile than wireless systems, you get an increased amount of possibilities through a wired or hybrid system in other ways. For example, you can install in-ceiling or in-wall speakers that seamlessly are hidden within the overall design of your house. Perhaps you own a pair of high-end stereo speakers, as well. While you will still enjoy increased performance, our team also can add wireless capability to these speakers so that you can experience control from your smart device of choice anywhere in your house.
Another feature of a wired multi-room audio system is the possibility of adding listening zones to your system.
As Utah’s leading Control4 dealer, we can manipulate your system so that while speakers in your master bedroom and bathroom play your favorite Spotify playlist, speakers in your living room and kitchen can play audio from the TV. Best of all, you can control all of this through the same, universal user interface.
