Whole House Audio Systems - Distributed Audio


Whole house audio systems delivers music throughout your home indoors and outdoors. There is a variety of distributed audio systems and configurations. Some simply uses your existing equipment with a single source or can incorporate multi-room multi-source with very specific control of the audio streamed to a particular location.

More advanced systems using easy to navigate touchscreens or computer controls for organizing the songs into themes by genre or artist for random playback or to create play-lists to play them back in any order you want. Complete control as if each room had its own system.

One family member can listen to internet radio, while another turns up the volume in their room to a favorite playlist, while another chose to just play a particular genre from a time long past.

Media Servers with simultaneous multiple streams

Media Server

Media Servers store and manage your music, providing easy retrieval from virtually anywhere in your home. It supplies multiple and completely independent streams (sources) of music simultaneously, making it ideal for use in a multi-room audio system delivering different music for each room.

Music can be downloaded from the Internet, loaded from your CDs into the Media Server or transfer music files from your computer. The data for the music, the artwork and information of class and genre is usually imbedded and can be used to sort, choose and make playlists. Some Media Servers even learn your music preferences for each theme and applies those preferences to its automated song selection. When connected to the Internet, you can even enjoy Internet radio throughout your home.

Dock your ipod and it becomes a source of music for the whole house audio system. From each keypad or touchscreen in the home you can choose from 6 streams of music including your docked ipod. The 6 streams of music can come from any source connected to the distributed audio system and played separately in the keypad zone. maybe each bedroom will be a zone, the master bathroom a zone and the family room. Complete control as if each room had its own system.

Integration of Whole House Audio with Automation
