Whole House Music

Music From Everywhere

whatis_icloud

The “cloud” has changed the entire landscape of music systems for your home almost overnight.  The amount of music available for you to enjoy throughout your home is now almost unlimited.  Pandora, Spotify, streaming Sirius/XM,  and internet radio have just totally changed things and all for the good.  Of course you still can enjoy your legacy CD collection or music on your iPod, but more new music than ever can be right at your fingertips through the “cloud”.

The advent of smart phones such as the iPhone or Android phones, and the iPad have also changed the way we control our music.  In many cases, its still nice to have a wall mounted keypad, but it’s now entirely possible to control 24 rooms of music with your iPhone or iPad.


We’ve Done our Homework

Audio Video Design has done extremely thorough research on all of the options available now for music throughout your home.  Typically we will actually deploy a new system in one of our homes for months before we start recommending it so we can be sure it performs up to our standards.

Operation of our systems is simple, with navigation easily learned by even a non-technical person in a matter of minutes.  We’ve all pretty much learned how to navigate apps on our smart phones, so the interface for most of our music systems is very similar.  You also don’t have to listen to the same thing throughout the entire house.  Choose a source for each room if you like, and give multiple listeners the chance to enjoy different sources.

What about the wiring?

Obviously during the new construction of a home, it’s easy to run whatever wiring is necessary for a great house wide music system.  However, today’s options from Audio Video Design work great in a finished home.  Many of our technicians are simply wizards at running wiring to places that seemed impossible.  In addition, lots of our system options have some kind of wireless capability for those areas that are difficult to get wiring to.

We can help you plan out your music system design so virtually everything is hidden!  We can locate the equipment in a remote location.  You can then place speakers inconspicuously on bookshelves, or in the walls or ceilings of your rooms, and use a keypad in the wall of each room or just your iPhone or iPad to control the system.

Your home will be the envy of your friends!

With Audio Video Design systems, entertaining becomes just a ton of fun.  Imagine being able to turn on the rooms you want music in from one keypad, your iPhone, or iPad.  Imagine being able to raise or lower the volume in every single room from one control point.   With cool new music services like Spotify, imagine your friends asking you to hear a song from 20 years ago that is not in your CD or iTunes collection and you have it playing all over your house in 10 seconds.  The possibilities are just amazing.

Audio Video Design home automation is limited only by your imagination. Whether you want basic volume control, an advanced keypad system, or control through your iPhone, Android, or iPad, your system is custom designed to meet your needs and to provide the level of control you desire.

The Best Part

And we’ve saved the best part for last.  Advances in technology have made the new breeds of house wide music systems not only 10 times more fun and easier than they were just a few years ago, but the cost has dropped by a huge amount. 

Audio Video Design recommends music systems from: Savant and Crestron

Many systems now allow you to start out with a basic multi-room home audio system and expand it later to include the convenient home automation features of lighting control, climate control, camera control, and much more.
