A Renovation Can Be the Best Time to Add Whole-Home Audio

But it's also a great time to make other updates as well, like with all those unsightly wires, devices, and even light switches. One upgrade you can make to your Atlanta, GA home is providing whole-home audio. If you use hidden wires and speakers, the only way you’ll know they are there is when you can hear the difference. But if that doesn’t convince you, here are some more reasons.

The Benefits of Using a Sonos Sound System

Sonos-Speaker-System

Are you trying to figure out what sound system you should purchase for your home? Learn about some of the advantages of using a Sonos home sound system.

It’s Wireless

The major benefit of any wireless system is not having to deal with wires. You can avoid the following issues:

  • Making sure everything is plugged into the right place
  • Starting over from square one when the wires don’t reach the desired speaker location
  • Worrying about a messy, cluttered look with wires all over the place
  • Spending extra time trying to hide the wires

Plain and simple, going wireless gives your space a cleaner look without all the extra work.

Calls Don’t Disrupt Your Music

Most wireless speakers systems stream music via Bluetooth connection. This means that your music is constantly getting disrupted whenever you receive a text or phone call.

With Sonos systems, music is streamed through a wireless Internet connection, meaning you won’t have to worry about interruptions. The music just keeps playing!

Invisible Speakers for Home Audio that’s Heard, Not Seen

Aesthetics_1_070312_3836f0ef21d1d8eecd90e5897fea82dd

Invisible speakers delivers unbelievable sound quality that emanates from the wall or ceiling, without any visible signs of a speaker. The space is filled with breathtaking music that seemingly comes from nowhere.  Invisible speakers are speakers that get installed in walls and ceilings, then are covered with sheetrock and painted or papered over, and yes, they can sound great.

If you ask an interior decorator about loudspeakers, he or she will tell you they should be heard and not seen. Maybe some home theater enthusiasts and audiophiles would disagree, but a lot of people hold the opinion that speakers in a whole housse audio system should be as hidden as possible. Imagine if we could actually have invisible speakers?

Well we can show you the solution to this age old problem.  Speakers can be invisible, at least in the strictest sense, meaning they’re in the room, you just don’t see them.

There are two main ways to make a speaker actually invisible, and both involve putting it behind something else.  The first, and most ingenious way, is with a kind of in-wall speaker that actually sits completely flush against the drywall (or other wall material), and then gets plastered over and painted so the speaker becomes 100 percent a part of the wall—-no visible grill.  The other way is to hide it behind something that is visible, such as a piece of art or behind a mirror.

Connect Your Smart Devices

Experience Home Entertainment Like Never Before With a Smart System

Blog-Experience-Entertainment-Like-Never-Before-With-Home-Media-Distribution_4d5a8e9f3bc4bdb7f42f4d8a327e50b8

When you upgrade your home with smart automation, you know that you’ll have unprecedented access to entertainment throughout your house. Home entertainment system distribution is important – no matter what kind of 4K television you have and what kind of surround sound system you install. It’s what puts all of your favorite entertainment at your fingertips. Read on to find out how you can have access to nearly endless entertainment throughout your home. 

Endless Entertainment in Your Home Theater

You’ve got all of the right components in your home theater. You have a beautiful 4K projector with a screen that produces some of the deepest blacks available. You have an excellent in-wall and in-ceiling surround sound system that envelops you in auditory bliss. You even have integrated floor lighting that comes on as the overhead lighting is dimmed, so you can see where you’re going without disrupting the picture. So now all you have to do is choose the right movie.

Stream content directly from online services like Netflix or Amazon Prime, or choose from a vast digital library of your favorite films – all from a central hub in an unused closet or basement. You can even keep a Blu-Ray player in the room, so you won’t have to leave the room to pop a disc in. And if you’re enjoying a midnight movie but decide you’d rather finish it in the comfort of your bed, pause it and pick it up exactly where you left off on your bedroom TV. Home media distribution makes accessing your movies and television fast, fun and easy in every room of your house.
