Multi-room audio systems are now a feature in many households. Technology has made it possible to have different songs playing simultaneously in different rooms of your house. With one of these systems, the musical tastes of the whole family are catered for. You can have your children listening to the songs of the latest pop icon in their bedrooms, your partner listening to a bit of jazz in the kitchen and yourself enjoying some classic rock and roll in the lounge. 

Multi-room audio systems are a far cry from the old record players and stack systems of days gone by. They are at the cutting edge of technology and getting better and better as time progresses.

Multi-room audio systems are absolutely fantastic for entertaining. If you are throwing a party, then you can split your house into different zones where people can go to enjoy the particular type of music that they love and not have to put up with a style they hate all night. They are also great if you are carrying out certain tasks and chores that cover the whole of your house. This may be cleaning or DIY. You can synchronize your system to play the same song all over the house so that you can listen to it as you work from room to room.

One make that really stands out is Home Theater from Lutron Electronics. 

You can buy controllers, zone players and all in one speaker systems from them. They specialize in making wireless home audio systems and focus all their attention on making them to the highest possible standards. A home theater system would more than meet all of your home entertainment needs. As the systems are wireless, they connect up to your router, giving you access to all of the songs on your PC, MAC, iPod and various internet platforms such as iTunes and Spotify. Home theater systems also allow you access to thousands of online radio stations.

Along with what is packed with these “in a box” systems, you will need a Television set. A wireless home theater will provide you with hours and hours of entertainment to make you enjoy every second of your time.

Experience Digital Sound With Multi-Room Audio!

Entertainment has grown to become an important part of our daily life. After a very long day at the office, one seeks out some entertainment options to keep the mind and brain fresh, and to make them feel much better and stronger. Among the favorite entertainment options, listening to music and watching movies top the charts. People typically return home and turn on their sound systems and television sets for relaxing and enjoying. To greatly enhance your experience of watching movies or listening to music, opt for a multi-room audio system. 

This system transforms the whole set up of entertainment with the aid of its hi-tech features. These features help the user to enjoy the good quality digital sound and amazing picture quality of movies. The digital quality of the system doesn’t put much stress on the ears and eyes of the person, therefore helps in comprehensive relaxation. 

The multi-room audio system permits the user to listen to different songs in different rooms. Based on the latest technology, the system is effective at delivering high-quality output with different kind of songs in separate rooms of the same house. Another excellent feature of the system is; it allows the user to have total control over the audio and video arrangements. With a single centralized remote, you can laze about on your couch, and you will not need to get up to change the music. 

The most important part of this system is the home audio speakers that are responsible for the sound production of the system. Better clarity in sound and excellent quality amplifiers make these multi-room audio systems the perfect option. 

Multi-Room Audio- You Have Many Options

Why Choose a Whole House Audio system? Most people choose to have a whole house system because it allows them to take their music and audio with them regardless of which room they happen to be in at the moment. A whole house system allows you to carry on your life without being plugged into an iPod. You can have conversations with your children, spouse, and guests while listening to the ball game or your favorite tunes. What is on your honey-do list for this weekend? You have to clean out the garage — no problem. You can take your music with you. Do you have to do all of the yard work too? No problem, take the game outside and listen while you work. A whole house system allows you to go about your life and still be able to do the things you want to do like just listening to the ball game.

What are my Choices?

The two big choices are single source systems or multi-source systems. Those can be set up as a wireless audio system or hardwired. The biggest difference is in the quality. The quality of the audio you receive goes up tremendously with professional installation. One consideration is the fact that every room in your home has different audio needs as each room responds differently to sound. A professional will be able to recognize the acoustic requirements of every room in your home.

Features include wall mounted volume dials that allow you to instantly adjust the volume of your audio specifically for that room. Most systems allow you to turn rooms on or off with a remote. No use waking your neighbors up at 3 am when you start to watch Jurassic Park, and the outdoor system is streaming dinosaurs fighting. Streaming music is another option with built-in iPod docking stations that allow the contents of your iPod to be played over your whole house system or multi-room audio system.

Components:

There is a variety of complete audio packages. These pre-configured systems include speakers, wire, keypads, and everything else you need to set up a multi-room audio system. You can build your system or allow one of our pros to help you select components that fit your audio needs. Start with an Amp and Keypad package or individual components. From there, you can add in power amplifiers to build a custom sound. Speaker selectors allow you to control which rooms receive audio and when. These allow you to control the overall sound throughout your home. Speakers are another area where choice plays a large part in the quality you receive. A professional installation will allow you to add speakers to your ceiling and even add in-wall units. The type of speakers that you choose makes a difference. Wireless setups allow you to broadcast audio without installing wires. These can afford an advantage to customizing speaker location. Abus Audio components allow seamless streaming of audio via Cat5 cables.

New Builds and Retrofit

It is easier to install a multi-room audio system during construction, but most of us are not building a new home. That means either using a wireless audio system or installing wires. That is where a professional installer comes in handy. Not only do they understand how to run wires the correct way, they know where wires should go and how to hide them. They can also make sure that all of your components are installed correctly and that all systems are working. They can even give you an overview of how to use the system.

When you decide you want home audio, choose your components carefully. Working with a professional can make a huge difference in the quality of the audio you receive. Understanding that not every room in your home is going to respond the same way to audio is important. By customizing speaker selection to each room, you gain a huge advantage in the quality of the audio that each room receives. No more cracky and popping connections.

Advantages of Hiring a Home Theater Installer

With the level of our economy now, it is tempting to opt for “do it yourself” to save a little green when installing a home theater. However, if you don’t have the skills, this could very well put a hole in your pocket. Professional help is ideal for these projects as the skills are very specialized and you actually end up with a superior setup and save money as well.

Superior professional setup and customization

Professional advice and ideal solution

Cost savings, eliminate unnecessary expenses
