Why would I want multi-room 🎵 audio?
Multi-room audio, put simply, is the ability to listen to music/audio in several rooms. Depending on the system you choose, you’ll either be able to play different audio in different rooms at the same time, the same audio in all rooms, or just a couple simultaneously.
Why do our client’s want it?
Music is an escape. Most of our clients are busy business owners and their home is their retreat. Multi-room audio is a great way to switch off. Our client in the Central Coast has a gorgeous home backing onto Beach. When we were putting together a scope for his project, he said he wanted to be able to put on the footy in the living room and still hear the audio while he moves between his indoor and outdoor living space. With the help of a multi-room audio system, he will be able to control five different audio zones in a centralised app. Meaning, he could be in the living room watching the game and can continue listening while he is cooking a BBQ on the alfresco without missing a beat.
What systems are the best?
We get it, there is plenty of brands out there. While some have more awareness than others, we like to focus on outcome rather than specific products to ensure the best result. Instead of focusing a brand, in our consultation we focus what kind of experience do you want to have.
Ask yourself the following questions:
- What rooms do I want to listen to audio?
- Do I have existing speakers that I want to work with?
- Do I have a particular atheistic I am after (i.e. flush in-ceiling speakers, invisible speakers, on-wall speakers, sound bar, or free standing)?
- Do you want to integrate with voice control such as Google Home or Alexa?
- How do you want to be able to control your music? From an app on your mobile device from a separate remote?
- Do you have other smart home integration you would like to tie into your audio such as lighting, climate control etc..?
- What quality of audio do you value? If you haven’t experience concert level audio or THX reference audio. PLEASE book a demo with us!
