Cost-Effective Choices and Quality Assured Sound: Sonos

Sonos is a great starter system for whole home audio and has a simple and intuitive installation process. It’s a wireless audio system powered over your home network — plug your new Sonos speakers into outlets, connect the speakers via Wi-Fi, download the Sonos app to your smartphone or tablet, and begin playing music. You control your entire Sonos system through the app. Add your favorite streaming services (Pandora, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, iHeart Radio, YouTube… the list goes on), radio, audiobooks, and podcasts to enjoy unlimited audio choices for any mood or occasion.

On the Sonos app, you can also group speakers to play music throughout multiple rooms, search for content, adjust the volume, and skip a song. Or play different music in different rooms — your daughter can do her homework in the bedroom listening to Spotify while you catch up on your latest podcast in the family room. A Sonos system is easy to scale — simply connect another speaker via Wi-Fi and listen to music in more rooms!

An upgrade from the wireless Sonos setup is Sonos architectural speakers by Sonance. Sonos and Sonance teamed up to create a line of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers powered by the Sonos Amp. Enjoy bold and immersive music with hidden speakers that reduce clutter throughout your house. The Amp offers the additional benefit of allowing you to connect a turntable and listen to old vinyl records. And you’ll still have streamlined control over your system using a smartphone or tablet.

Luxury Performance and Elegant Aesthetics: Sonance

Sonance has long been a leading brand name for high-performance, luxury, architectural audio. The company carefully blends and perfectly executes elegant aesthetics and top-notch performance with a range of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. Their premier collection — Sonance Invisible Series— is completely installed in the walls and ceiling, then finished over with the surrounding materials for a truly invisible aesthetic. The Invisible Series is designed with high-quality components that deliver crystal-clear highs, smooth mids, and powerful bass in a 180° dispersion range. The final effect is rich, detailed, and dynamic sound that envelops the room. 

Sonance in-ceiling and in-wall speakers offer more customized design options than Sonos does. The Invisible Series leaves no visual footprint in any room of your home. The Visual Performance Series comes in several sizes and shapes (round, square, rectangle), and the low-profile grille can be painted over to blend into your home’s décor. The Architectural Series has flush grilles and can be mounted to align perfectly with lighting fixtures or other wall and ceiling furnishings. 

The Next Step in Whole House Audio: Savant

The next step in upgrading whole home audio is integrating it with a centralized control system like Savant. With Savant home automation, you not only have control over your home audio system from a smartphone or tablet — you also have control over your home’s other technologies, like lighting, shading, video, climate, and security. One button press can adjust the lights, shades, climate, and music in any room to your desired settings for a party, game night, or a quiet evening with a book.
