Home Audio Systems
Is Your Home Ready For The Holidays?
With the holiday season almost here, now is the time to get your home ready! Because, before you know it, you’ll be out of time to get ready for the festivities ahead! So, whether you plan on entertaining a lot of guests, or a small group of friends and family, if you want to turn your holiday parties into unforgettable memories that last, adding the right background music can get you there. Sure, traditional holiday songs and carols haven’t changed much over the years, but what has changed is the way we experience them. In fact, today’s home audio systems allow you to fill your entire home with music or stream it to just one room and even to the garden.
From your kitchen to your living room and bedrooms to your bathrooms, home audio systems allow you to play your favorite holiday music for everyone to hear. After all, holiday music is not only symbolic of the most wonderful time of the year, but it’s also our constant companion — from shopping to wrapping presents, to baking or entertaining. So, let the meal preparation and playlist selection begin, because nothing says holidays quite like music. With this in mind, we offer some insight on home audio systems that will bring you and your loved ones audio joy and holiday cheer this year.
Music To Your Ears
Music has the power to make or break an experience, and the holidays are no different. With a variety of options for listening to our music, streaming audio in our homes is simply something we cannot live without this holiday season. Because, nothing says the holidays quite like music. With this in mind, we offer some insight on building two types of home entertainment systems: a one room entertainment solution, and a whole house solution.
One Room Entertainment Solution
Say goodbye to coffee table clutter and hello to just one remote that controls everything in the media cabinet. With a single remote, you can control your entire entertainment system. From streaming movies to listening to your favorite holiday music, Control4 offers the perfect entry point to your smart home. Access millions of songs, playlists, podcasts and radio stations through popular streaming services such as Deezer, Napster, Pandora, TIDAL and TuneIn and add dozens more of your favorite music services. And, for even greater expansion of your streaming options, Airplay compatibility gives you access to your personal library of music using any iOS device. Even guests can stream their own music throughout your home!
Whole House Entertainment Solution
Imagine if your music could follow you around the house as you go about your day. From the kitchen to the dining room, and even outside on your deck, a whole house entertainment solution will allow you to do that and so much more. Enjoy built-in access to popular streaming music services such as Pandora, Napster, TIDAL, and dozens more without the need for additional gear. Now every member of your family can listen to and control the tunes they want, from wherever they are in the home. Play the same playlist throughout the entire house or let family members as well as holiday guests choose their own music, from their own devices, in what ever room they are in.
Audio Video System Calibration
For those of you who already have a home AV system, it’s important to ensure you are getting the most out of your system by checking the entire chain. From your speakers to your display and your Networking Switches to your cables, getting your home ready for the holidays starts with ensuring your home entertainment system is up and running. If you are wondering if you need an A/V calibration consider answering the following questions we have listed below:
- Have you checked to make sure all of your speakers are working
- Do you need to add more music zones
- Can you play music in all the rooms or areas you want in your home (if not you may need to add more zones)
- Can you use all the sources you want to stream music or movies with (if not you may need to update your system)
- Do you have enough bandwidth for your system (if not you may need to upgrade your network)
- Can you guests access and play their own playlists
If you have a hard time answering any of these questions or can say no to one or more, contact us for a complimentary in-home consultation. Because, there’s nothing better than baking some cookies and playing your favorite holiday music while sipping on some hot chocolate to get you in the holiday spirit!
