The Benefit of a Professional, Wired Music System
In the audio world, speakers are put into different categories. Today we’ll just focus on wireless and wired. While wireless music systems are very popular, wired in speakers have a lot of advantages. You may be surprised to learn that a wireless music system actually has wires. You need an outlet nearby to plug in the speaker and power your music. “Wireless” basically means that multiple speakers can be connected without wires. So if you put a Sonos Play 1 speaker in your bedroom, a Play 5 in your living room, and another Play 1 in the kids’ room, they can all play the same song using a wireless Internet connection. Wired speakers, on the other hand, are connected with wires. Wired speakers do require a professional installation and take more time to set-up, but the result is worth it. Here is an overview of the benefits:
- Reduce Clutter: By wiring in speakers into your home, you can save space and reduce clutter. Wireless speakers are usually placed on a bookshelf or hung on the walls so they can be an eyesore. But wired-in speakers are installed inside the walls and the ceiling. You may still see the grill, but it will be flat to the wall and barely noticeable. That way you can fill your home with other more fun and beautiful pieces of décor. (Although, bookshelf, floor standing, and on-wall speakers can also be wired into the whole home system too.)
- Even Distribution: With wired systems, the professional installer will take a lot of thought into how every speaker is placed in the room so that the sound fills the space evenly. Though wireless speakers do a good job of providing the volume you need to hear the music, only wired systems will distribute the sound evenly so that you hear the music at the right volume and level in every spot, whether you are in the center or the corner.
- Add Value to the Property: Wireless speakers are definitely mobile. You can unplug them from the wall and move them around. However, wired speakers are a more fixed feature in your home. If you invest in a whole house audio installation, it will increase the value of your home if you ever have to sell. Though, with sound this nice you probably won’t want to!

Sonos is compatible with Control4 smart home systems so you can incorporate music into a variety of scenes.
For example, wake up to your favorite song and turn on your bedroom lights at the same time. Play news radio as you arrive home after work to catch up on what happened that day. If you are interested in adding a smart music system to your home, contact us today.
