When audio technology is effectively distributed throughout your home the benefits are significant. With a wide range of solutions offered today, there can be much to decide. Distributed audio systems are most commonly designed in two ways analog & digital. Most basic analog solutions are no more than a single amplifier, in-wall volume control knobs and typically a pair of in-ceiling speakers. Even though analog solutions can deliver superior sound quality for even the greatest music lover or the so-called “audiophile”, it lacks the diversity and system design capabilities of a digital solution.
With a digital distributed audio system, you not only have the added superior sound quality but multi-zone room to room discrete control this opens a world of possibilities for your home. Imagine someone listening to some romantic jazz in the kitchen while the kids in their bedroom listening to hard rock and someone by the pool listening to their personal playlist. A digital multi-zone system controlled by an automation system literally opens the door. For example, when someone at the front door rings the doorbell, the current music playing is temporarily muted and your favorite music ring tone or custom bell audio can be played over the entire audio system at a unique set volume level in any room.
