Powerful Audio Systems
We all enjoy listening to music at home. However, older audio and music systems only allowed us to play or stream music in one room or area. But thanks to modern home audio solutions, we do not need to confine our entertainment to a single room!
With a whole-house audio system, you can enjoy your favourite music anywhere in your house. And with a multi-room audio system, you can enjoy your songs while other members of the family can enjoy theirs! In a multi-room home sound system, the home is divided into areas called “zones.”
A zone can be one room, such as the master bedroom, or can cover several rooms, such as the kitchen, and dining room. All rooms within a zone play the same source but can do so at different volume levels.
Where to begin
The first step in designing and installing a smart home audio system is identifying your required sources. Common sources include FM radio, cable TV, CD players, satellite radio, mobile phones and tablets. Newer whole-house audio systems incorporate streaming audio, pulling music from across the home’s network, from a hard drive or a cloud-based service.
Next, we identify the media zones required. The kind of home audio solution that you install will depend on the number of rooms or zones you wish the media to be distributed. We will also need to take into consideration the location of each of these zones, to install the most suitable solution.
- How many rooms (or zones) do you wish the media distributed to?
- Where are each of these zones located within your home?
The third and most crucial aspect of the process is deciding the type of equipment to be allocated to each zone. You will have the option to choose any smart home audio system including:
- Surround sound systems
- Ceiling mounted speakers
- In Wall or On Wall mounted speakers
Finally, we will choose a convenient, centralised location or the ‘node zero’ for the equipment, based on the structure of your house. It will ensure that all the key equipment is placed in a safe and secure place.
- Where will the Multi-Room audio control equipment be located?
- Node Zero – basically, it is the convenient centralised area that houses the key sources.
