There’s nothing like listening to your favorite music. It can help you relax, it can help you get work done, and it can make an empty house seem full. And when you have a whole home audio system, you can listen to your favorite tracks anywhere on your Richmond, VA property. Plus, you can control your playlists all with a single interface that allows you to stream almost anything with the touch of a button.
If you’ve set up speakers throughout your home, you may think you’re getting the most out of your system — but you could be missing out. In this blog, we’ll show you why you should consider professional help when installing multi-room audio. Keep reading for more.
Sound staging for a whole home audio system is essential to getting the best sound possible. As part of a two-channel system, the sound should seem as though it’s playing directly in front of the listener, blending to create a realistic sound. With a distributed system, though, the purpose of the placement is full coverage with no hot spots.
In other words, no matter where you’re standing in a room, the audio shouldn’t seem louder or quieter than in any other spot. To achieve this, expert placement is necessary. As professional integrators, we can determine where the speakers should go and how many you’ll need to garner the best results for your unique space.
Once we have determined the optimum location for your speakers, we will go about placing them strategically for you. For recessed systems, that may mean running wires through the wall to the source racked in a basement or closet.
We will guide you through every step of the process to make sure that all of your questions are answered. We provide on-going support so even if something goes wrong we are able to update your system easily.
After installation, we will likely calibrate the speakers for each room. Because the conditions can vary, they use special software that achieves the best possible sound.
Everything from the type of flooring, to the furniture, to the windows can have an impact on the way your system sounds, so it’s best to consult a professional if you want to hear your music the right way.
And, of course, once your system is in place, you’ll need to control it. That means an easy to use interface that allows you to select the songs, playlists, and settings you want with a single button.
Plus, when you integrate with a smart home system, you can control multiple systems — the lighting, home theater, comfort, and security, along with your music. One of the best parts of smart technology is the ability to have everything work in tandem in your home.
