Four Reasons People Love Sonos for Multi-room Audio Systems
Start with Easy Control of Every Speaker in your Home
It's likely that if someone mentions multi-room audio, the Sonos name invariably comes up. The company has made a reputation for itself with simplified audio solutions that sound great, look stylish, and are easy to live with. And not only do they work in one room, but it's also effortless to build a houseful of Sonos audio in perfect synchrony.
Is a Sonos multiroom system right for your Atlanta, GA home? That's what we're here to discuss! Please read on for four reasons people love Sonos whole-house audio.
Look Ma, No Wires
If you go for Sonos wireless speakers, you can forget about speaker wiring. OK, they do require power, so there is a power cable to connect. However, they connect to your wireless network and use their own proprietary networking to stitch speakers together into a whole-home audio system that plays in perfect harmony. Speakers like the Sonos 1 and Sonos 5 are self-contained, requiring no amplifiers or other equipment. The wireless aspect allows you the flexibility to place them where you want them, within reason. And the Trueplay room correction and optimization feature lets you locate your speakers in suboptimal places without compromising on sound quality.
Sonos sometimes jokes that it’s a software company that makes speakers. Truth be told, software is one of the key drivers of innovation in audio today. That isn’t to say you don’t need good components and hardware engineering skills to make a product that sounds good. But prowess in software and firmware enables Sonos to achieve amazing sound quality from hardware that might not impress a traditional audio enthusiast. Until they listen, that is. Trueplay room optimization is an excellent example of this.
Another important aspect of software is usability and ease of updating. Sonos systems have always excelled at usability, with app control from a smartphone that’s intuitive yet powerful. It also makes configuration easy, as in pairing Sonos speakers for stereo or setting up a surround system with the Sonos Sub and the Arc soundbar. Software control also enables updates that bring new features and better performance, just like that Tesla that might be sitting in your garage.
Since every Sonos product is a willing participant in a Sonos multiroom system, soundbars like the Arc and newly updated Beam can provide excellent audio in smaller media spaces while also being part of your whole home setup. How cool is that? And when you have a Sonos surround system with rear speakers, you can set it up for ambient sound or have every speaker playing for a fuller sound, which works great for parties.
Integrated Voice Control
Want to control your whole home system with just your voice? It's easy with Sonos. The Sonos Beam and Arc soundbars have built-in microphones and voice control through Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. The Sonos One speaker has voice control integrated, too; use them strategically to add voice assistance in rooms where you want it.
There’s so much to love with Sonos. But when might you not love Sonos for multiroom audio? In some larger properties with many audio zones, other systems may provide a more flexible and cost-effective solution for whole-home audio.
