A Distributed Audio System Delivers Superior Sound to Every Corner of Your Home and Yard
Can you imagine your “relaxing” playlist streaming through your home when you walk in the door after a long day at work? How about enjoying the big game on your patio with friends or swimming laps to Coldplay? In another part of the home, a family member tunes into their afternoon podcast while someone else is entrenched in a video game.
The remarkable part of this scenario is that all of these sounds are coming from your whole-home audio system—a system that distributes audio from the same sources to every room and into your outdoor space. This system consolidates your audio components, whether a turntable, streaming device, satellite receiver, or CD player, and allows you to control them all from one user-friendly platform. A distributed audio system lets you play any music in any room from any source.
