‘Music is life itself. What would this world be without music? No matter what kind it is.’
Whether you favour the classics, the compelling jazz of the legendary Louis Armstrong who authored this quote, rock ‘n roll, electropunk, or anything in between, you have to agree with Satchmo’s sentiments that a world without music is impossible to imagine.
So if you’re a music lover, the good news is that technological developments in the field of audio products and digital communications have made it even easier and more affordable to fill your home with music.
Gone are the days of spaghetti junctions of wires, chunky devices with complex control systems, racks of CDs, and huge speakers. Today, online music libraries, streaming apps, and wireless HiFi systems put multi-room audio at your fingertips.
Multiroom music systems from brands like Sonos and Paradigm coupled with subscription streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music make it possible to enjoy your favourite artist, band, soundtracks, podcast, and radio stations at the touch of a button on your smartphone, tablet or computer. And if you’re an early adopter of innovative technologies like voice-activated speakers, a simple command is all you’ll need to fire up your music system and get the party started.
Multi-room audio really is an affordable reality nowadays and best of all, multiroom services like Sonos are scalable so you can start with one or two rooms and expand your system when you’re ready. Whether you’ve got a small studio or a multi-floor mega-mansion, you can start a new system from scratch or you can upgrade your existing HiFi system by adding wireless speakers to the rooms where you want to play music without having to trail wires all over the place, push a hundred buttons and operate complex remotes.
Systems like Sonos can deliver synchronised music – without wireless interference – to every room in your home, on your terms.
Can’t stand your teenager’s heavy metal? Love your partner but don’t share similar tastes in music? Feel like pumping up the energy in one room and mellowing out in another? Well, because the speakers and smart devices all ‘talk’ to one another wirelessly, you can play the same music in all rooms – or you can change things up by playing different music in different zones. Any smart device can be used to control your music system, your own music or any streaming service, putting complete control in the palm of your hand.
There are so many ways that a multi-room audio streaming system can make life at home more fun and more interesting.
Someone may want to listen to a podcast whilst cooking up a storm in the kitchen while another member of the family may want to practice their dance moves to their favourite DJ while getting dressed to go out. Sports fans can listen to the football commentary streaming through the speakers on the patio whilst other members of the family are blasting their ears with the latest hits blaring through the lounge room speakers. The beauty of a multi-room system is that the wireless speakers can be set up in such a way that everyone in the family has their individual music tastes catered for.
Multi-room audio streaming has also become an integral aspect of home automation with features like security, access control, lighting and communications all combining into one efficient and connected whole.
