Integrating Music Throughout Your Home
Whether you’re a fan of the Rat Pack, old school R&B, appreciate a classic symphony or only like to keep up with today’s hits, listening to your favorite music - old or new - should be always be an experience. It’s time to start considering your favorite tunes when planning your home’s entertainment systems.
Entertainment beyond the home theater
Home theater systems have become a norm in most homes because of the entertainment value you can get out of your television or a big screen projector. There’s no reason why your music library can’t provide that same value - when done correctly. Just like speaker placement and configuration are crucial for creating an immersive surround sound experience for maximum entertainment value in your home theater, speaker type, placement and system configuration are crucial to ensuring you can lose yourself in your favorite songs.
Old school versus new school
Another important factor to consider when implementing any sort of home audio system into your space is the media. Have you gone completely digital and entered the streaming age or do you like to keep it old school with physical media like classic vinyl and your favorite record player? Both media require different systems to ensure you’re listening to the music as it was intended, while also allowing you complete access to your favorite albums and artists. For instance, do you need a high-tech touch panel display that gives you access to an unlimited library to stream throughout your entire home? Or do you need a dedicated listening room with storage for CDs, vinyl or tapes?
Consider your options
The key is to optimize all of your spaces for the best listening possible, which means carrying that sound system throughout your home, even outside. Integrating a whole-home audio system is as great for entertaining just as much as it is for casual listening. With the right integration and system, there’s no reason why you can’t feel like you’re in the recording studio.
