Music is the best way to elevate any moment; after all, what is summer without a soundtrack? With a high-end audio system in your Central Texas home, you can find more enjoyment in listening to your favorite tunes while cooking a meal, hosting a backyard BBQ, or taking a dip in the pool. Your home will soon become the go-to summer spot among friends and family with whole-home audio that takes your music indoors and outdoors. Here are Origin Hifi’s favorite ways to enjoy the summertime with multi-room audio.
Music in Every Room
Listening to music together is proven to create more harmonious relationships among friends and family. However, if you only have one speaker in the kitchen or living room, guests who aren't in that room may feel left out of the fun in a so-called "dead zone" that creates separation. However, a whole-home audio system solves this issue. You don't need a full stereo system in each room; an in-wall, bookshelf, or floor standing speaker that produces crystal clear sound should do enough to keep the party going when connected to the same system, so each speaker will play the same audio in sync. Now you're ready for dinner, board game night, or dance party with the ability to switch playlists and adjust the volume with the touch of a button.
Take it Outside
Despite the Texas heat, Austinites are often found outside soaking up the summer sun. Music can improve your summer fun with weatherproof outdoor speakers across your backyard, including speakers that look like rocks, or subwoofers installed underground. You and your guests will be able to enjoy the same songs whether they’re swimming in the pool, relaxing in a gazebo, or playing a cornhole tournament. Once again, connecting your outdoor speakers to your audio system allows you to play the same song in the exterior and interior of your home with high-fidelity quality. If you’re not feeling like listening to music, you can play ambient noise that encourages relaxation, like twittering birds, ocean waves, or a thundering rainfall. Embrace a stress-free summer with an outdoor sound system.
Catch Up on Some Reading
We already mentioned that you can play ambient noise through your whole-home audio system, but you can continue to think outside the box and listen to other forms of media. You can finish listening to your audiobook while cleaning the home, bring mindfulness to your breathing in a guided meditation, gasp in horror at the latest true-crime podcast, or stay on top of the news with the radio. You'll be able to hit pause in one room and resume it in the next, or just keep your speakers playing your choice of media throughout your home while you get ready to listen on the patio. Your options are truly endless.
With an integrated whole-home audio system, managing your music is easier than ever. You'll be able to change the song or adjust the volume through your mobile device, be it a smartphone, smartwatch, or tablet. You can also give your guests a chance to be the DJ by controlling the system with voice commands or a wall-mounted control panel. You'll be able to pause the entire home's music with the touch of a button if it's time to sing "Happy Birthday" and blow out the candles or turn the music down in seconds once the sun goes down to avoid noise complaints from tired neighbors.
When you have a home audio system that's been professionally installed, you won't be limited to listening from a single input or music platform. You can take out your vinyl collection, select a themed station on Pandora, stream your favorite Spotify playlist, find new tunes on Amazon, play music videos from YouTube, and more. You can also choose speakers to connect to a specific screen to watch the big game or enjoy a movie night with your family and friends. Your new system will produce crisp sound that immerses you in the action of the plot and the emotion of the music.
