When it comes to setting the mood, our REALTORS® know that good lighting, good friends, and good music are the best ways to enjoy your new home. Whether you are hosting a party or relaxing after a long day at work, installing a solid sound system will go a long way toward making your home more comfortable. The more music, the merrier, and the following are some steps you can take to enjoy great sound throughout your home.
- Get Ready to Rock the 21st Century!
Whether you enjoy classical, jazz, country, or modern rock, the best sound systems are built around modern home automation. Upgrading the wiring and WiFi in your home will allow you to enjoy the security and comfort home automation systems offer. Whether you choose a wired or wireless sound system, you will want to establish a central hub to control each speaker. It would be best if you chose a hub that works with all the devices you want to utilize, including the lighting, security, audio, systems you want to install.
- Choose Your Speakers Carefully
Different rooms have different acoustic properties. One speaker might work great in a large living room with vaulted ceilings, but it will be overpowering in a smaller room such as a bedroom or bathroom. Thus, choose speakers built for the size of the room. Not only will they fit in better with the decor, but they will also sound better as your favorite tunes waft through the space.
A variety of manufacturers offer a solid range of speakers that you can add to every room in your home. While many home automation recommendations suggest purchasing speakers from the same manufacturer, that's not necessary. What's more important is making sure that each speaker is compatible with your primary home automation system.
- Create a Steady Stream of Music
A variety of streaming services have massive libraries of music you can stream into every room in your house. For a nominal fee, you can enjoy the benefit of having a vast array of music at your disposal without having to fill wall upon wall with CDs.
Of course, you are likely to have some old CDs or MP3s lurking about. Compiling these and uploading them into a streaming service can make it easy to access these without ever having to touch a CD player.
And, if you're a music purist, there's no doubt you have an old vinyl collection you love to show off to your friends. When it comes to vinyl, better is always best. Don't skip on purchasing a high-quality record player. Choosing one with a carbon fiber tonearm, heavy plinth, and steel or acrylic platter will give you the best sound. A high-quality record player will cost you about twice as much as a low-end option, but it's worth every penny for the sound quality you will enjoy.
