home audio systemAre you building a new home, or planning a complete renovation? Are you just ready to enhance your home’s sound system? Regardless of the reason, now is the perfect time to find a new home audio system that combines the best of innovation, technology, and style.

However, for many homeowners, this is a process that can be a bit confusing. After all, there are so many options out there, where do you even begin? The first step is to learn about the different types of whole house audio systems that are available.

Wireless Systems

Modern wireless systems are a popular option. This is mainly because the installation and setup only takes minutes. You don’t have to install a complicated or bulky home theater receiver and you can easily move the wireless speakers until you find the ideal location. You can also take the entire system with you (easily) if you decide to move.

If you are adding a home audio system to your current home, then a wireless system is the obvious choice. You may also want to consider a hybrid system, which utilizes both wireless components and wired components. With this type of system, you can utilize unique features, such as a smartphone remote control app.

With wireless systems, you can connect every room in your house with ease and even add speakers to the exterior patio area. This makes it possible to have a true, whole house audio system.

Wired Systems

While wireless systems are terrific and modern, some people find wired systems, where the controls are on the walls, are much easier to use and live with.

The installation of these types of systems can be quite daunting for a do-it-yourselfer, which is why it is highly recommended you let the professionals take over. They can carefully layout where all of the equipment will go and ensure it is working properly before they leave.

70-volt Systems

A wired system is also a smart option for commercial properties, such as a coffee shop or dentist office. In commercial spaces, the 70-volt system will typically be the best option. There are a number of reasons for this:

  • One amp is able to drive several speakers without the need for a complicated wiring scheme.
  • It is quite easy to set various levels of volume for different areas of the property.
  • You can easily expand the system as needed.
  • You can use less expensive, lighter speaker wire and less of it overall.
