Let the Music Move You in Any Room with a Distributed Audio System

Music is one of the most powerful mediums, its effect on us can be transformative. An infamous DJ once suggested that all it takes is a single song to change how you see the day so that you can take on the world.

Melody and rhythm have been part of us since the beginning. The oldest known instrument, a flute-like unit, was crafted more than 400,000 years ago. It is highly possible that drum-like devices were in use for a thousand years before that.

Rather than being confined to one room or lugging around an inadequate-sounding mobile device and earbuds, multi-room audio follows you. Be enveloped in vocals that are crisp with bass lines that you can feel and a mid-range that moves you.

Are you ready to make the most of the music in your smart home? Read below to find out more!
