When you think about it, it's incredible how much we listen to some form of audio throughout the day and how that sound affects us. From the moment we wake up, we turn on our “Good Morning” playlist or the morning news. Then, at the end of the day, we watch the latest blockbuster, tune into our favorite podcast, or relax with a meditation video.
A minute rarely goes by that we’re not listening to something, and what we listen to affects our mood and emotions. One study found that certain music stimulates the part of the brain that produces dopamine, our “feel good” hormone. No wonder our treasured vinyl collection or playlists are the first things we turn to when we need a lift!
Now, imagine listening to this audio content fill your home—a crystal clear sound enveloping you and following you wherever you go, from your bedroom, through the living room, and out into the yard. It seems to come from nowhere and yet is everywhere. That is the power of a whole-home audio system. Let’s explore just what these systems offer and how they’re transforming homes in Malibu, CA, and the rest of the state.
A whole-home audio system consolidates your audio equipment, whether a turntable, CD player, streaming device, or satellite receiver. This equipment is tucked away in a cabinet or closet, and the audio is distributed to nearly invisible in-wall and in-ceiling speakers strategically installed throughout your home.
You no longer have to head to the media room to listen to your vinyl collection. Now, you can play music from any source in any room and out into your outdoor areas via satellite landscaper speakers and in-ground subwoofers.
You can listen to the same exquisite-sounding melody throughout your home or direct different audio to different rooms. For example, one family member can listen to soft jazz while they prepare dinner in the kitchen. At the same time, another person enjoys a backyard swim while listening to their motivating playlist streaming through underwater pool speakers. And yet another family member moves to their favorite workout video in the media room. And all of these sounds come from the same whole-home audio system.
When integrated with a smart home automation platform, you experience effortless control from the same user-friendly interface that manages your lighting, climate, video, security, and more. Simply choose an audio source and a room or your whole home. These platforms also provide easy access to numerous streaming music services, including TIDAL, Napster, Spotify, and Qobuz.
We can also program the system to respond to your daily activities. For instance, you can wake in the morning to your “Good Morning” playlist streaming through your home while your shades raise to reveal another beautiful day. When you arrive back home at the end of the day, your “Relaxing” playlist greets you when you walk in the door. Almost anything is possible in today’s smart home!
