Spread Some Cheer at Home with These Top-Hit Yuletide Albums
Nothing spurs holiday spirit quite like music. While it may be convenient to select one of the thousands of seasonal playlists from popular streaming services like Spotify or Tidal to enjoy throughout your Roswell, GA home, no streaming platform can muster the magic of vinyl.
‘Tis the season for audiophiles to slow down and sink into the warm, musical nuances that only vinyl records can deliver. For rockers and crooners alike, our team at GHT Group has provided 10 top holiday vinyl records to spin on your high-end audio rig. See the list below, as well as some of our premium turntable and speaker recommendations should you need a home audio upgrade.
Starting Your Music Is Simple for Everyone at Home
Control4 is known far and wide as a full-fledged home automation system, but it also features a native whole-home audio solution that gives standalone multi-room music systems a run for their money. Not only can you quickly access and share music throughout the home, but you can also manage other smart home functions, such as lights, TVs, and door locks, using the same preferred Control4 device.
Because no Georgia household or music listener is the same, Control4 offers various intuitive control options that suit different preferences. While a handheld remote may be best for controlling music when you’re relaxing on the couch, voice commands may be better when you’re cooking in the kitchen.
Below, we’ll explore five easy ways to command the Control4 whole-home audio system in your Brookhaven or Metro Atlanta home. Get to know the ways and decide which ones you may like best!
Comparing the Most Popular Streaming Music Services
We live in a world of almost limitless content. In cable TV, an old joke was, "we have 300 channels, and there's nothing to watch." You'd be hard-pressed to make that joke today with the wonderful world of streaming content so readily available to us. With Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO, Apple TV+, Disney+, and so many more, it's difficult to think about not finding something you want to watch.
But this blog is about audio, not video! And the amount and range of music we can call up with a few flicks on a touchscreen are equally amazing. Today’s streaming music services boast 40 million-plus tracks of recorded music available in an instant, whether it’s from 60 years ago or today’s top hits. It’s equally difficult to imagine not being able to find some music you like to listen to on a streaming service.
You might be wondering, what's the difference in streaming services? Isn't the music library much the same? The short answer is yes. But the way you find that music, and how you interact with it is different. Some folks feel very strongly about their preference for Spotify over Apple Music or vice-versa.
So which service should you use on your whole-home audio system in Atlanta? GHT Group isn't here to tell you which one is best – that's up to you. The good news is that all the ones we'll discuss here work with whole-home audio systems we recommend like Control4.
Read on for a brief overview of five of the most popular streaming services to see which ones are for you.

Monitor Audio is a great British speaker company, much like KEF and Bowers & Wilkins. Unlike those companies, Monitor sometimes flies a little under the radar but is nonetheless quite familiar to most audio enthusiasts.
Last year we were excited to bring in Monitor Audio to our growing stable of high-fidelity speaker brands at GHT Group, in addition to MartinLogan, Klipsch Heritage, and McIntosh. This year, we are very excited to introduce the new Monitor Audio Bronze 6G, which might bring a new benchmark in audio price/performance to your Buckhead, GA living room.
