Whole-Home Audio Brings High-Fidelity Music to Every Room

A Distributed Audio System Delivers Superior Sound to Every Corner of Your Home and Yard

Whole-Home Audio Brings High-Fidelity Music to Every Room

Can you imagine your “relaxing” playlist streaming through your home when you walk in the door after a long day at work? How about enjoying the big game on your patio with friends or swimming laps to Coldplay? In another part of the home, a family member tunes into their afternoon podcast while someone else is entrenched in a video game.

The remarkable part of this scenario is that all of these sounds are coming from your whole-home audio system—a system that distributes audio from the same sources to every room and into your outdoor space. This system consolidates your audio components, whether a turntable, streaming device, satellite receiver, or CD player, and allows you to control them all from one user-friendly platform. A distributed audio system lets you play any music in any room from any source.

Distributing Your Audio

The equipment for this unique system is tucked away in a closet or cabinet, and audio is distributed through wired and wireless solutions to nearly invisible in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. These speakers produce high-resolution audio, with grills painted to match their surrounding surfaces or built into walls where they can’t be seen. Outdoors, satellite speakers look like landscape lights, and invisible in-ground subwoofers deliver the all-powerful bass. You can play the same beautiful music throughout your home and yard or direct different songs and audio to different speakers.

Effortless Control

Control your audio through the same home automation system that controls your video, lighting, climate, security, and more. One tap on touchscreens, in-wall keypads, and remotes lets you choose your audio and the room. 

At Encore Audio Video, we specialize in integrating the latest home automation systems with high-performance audio and video. The result is a high-fidelity sound that surrounds you no matter where you go. One of the brands we partner with, Control4, offers seamless audio management. It provides access to over 40 streaming music services, like iTunes, Pandora, Napster, TIDAL, and Spotify. You can even choose your provider, artist, and track on your smartphone or TV.

Our certified technicians know the perfect placement for speakers, whether in great rooms, bedrooms, showers, pools, or yards, so your home maintains its aesthetics while delivering high-quality sound. They’ll assess each room and outdoor area, considering acoustic challenges, and calibrate and configure the speakers and audio settings to produce the ultimate sound reproduction. 

Create scenes to integrate your audio and effortlessly manage multiple smart home systems. For example, one tap on a touchscreen initiates a command that sets the music, lighting, and temperature for an evening with friends. Send your “cooking” playlist to the kitchen, stream your favorite jazz music to the patio, and turn on your landscape lights and water features all with one touch. Encore Audio Video can also set up automatic scenes, such as waking up every morning to soft tunes in your bedroom or turning on your end-of-the-day playlist when you pull in the driveway.
