What To Think About When Buying...Multiroom Systems

If you have landed on this page, then we have no doubt at all that you are probably already aware of multi-room audio systems.

Accomplishing this means you will almost likely be in need of Streaming Ceiling Speakers in order to stream your music wirelessly around your home in such a system set-up. However, there is plenty to consider in light of these systems before installing, even before purchasing.

Our helpful guide below outlines the four areas to think about when wanting to select the right system for you in your home.

  • Purpose

If you are someone that is an avid listener of music, and want to take things to the next level with your audio experience, not just through your headphones, and maybe not just in one room, a multi-room audio system incorporating streaming ceiling speakers is what you require.

  • Size of room / speakers

The size of room and speakers, and the number of speakers, play a notable aspect of the decision you will need to make before purchasing.

If you are looking to at having multi-room audio then the "size of room" can almost be overlooked! However, in all seriousness, you will still need to make the right choice over what size speaker you will need.

You will be having to cut holes into your ceiling eventually, so it is far better to get this decision made now instead of needing to make changes and alterations to your ceiling space at a later date.

What is it that you really want to do with your streaming ceiling speakers? Of course, one major aspect is that fact that you can stream music to different areas of your home seamlessly, or you may just want to think about what you wish to accomplish with your audio system. Is this for your own personal needs in your kitchen or bathroom, or will you be planning to host dinner parties and functions where audio will almost become the centre piece itself?

We have 5", 6" and 8" CANTON available, and can either work in a single pair or in two pairs, again dependant on the size of room you wish to install these in.

  • Functions

With the Sonos CONNECT:AMP, you gain the ability to use your smartphone, tablet and laptop computer to stream your personal music around your home wirelessly.

Sonos allows you to play a different song in each room throughout your home, and even greater control in terms of volume and levels within each different room / zone that is available to connect to.

Adding further pairs of CANTON speakers to your selected bundle gives you every opportunity to grow your system even larger, but remember you will need one Sonos CONNECT:AMP per room / zone.

You can even stream direct from your favourite music streaming services such as Spotify, Last.fm, Deezer and coming soon, the highly anticipated Apple Music service. Pre-loaded internet radio stations also allow you to have endless music to enjoy via any device connected to your WiFi network running the Sonos app.

Manage your music effortlessly with your WiFi devices or link other devices to your Sonos CONNECT: AMP through an analog audio input that lets you to connect your TV, DVD, HiFi, MP3 players etc. Sonos makes ease of use a major priority within their design to ensure nothing comes in between you and your music streaming.

  • Appearance

CANTON speakers, when installed, are unobtrusive with them being dropped in through holes in your ceiling. The edges and grilles of the speakers are barely noticeable, compared to HiFi speakers that can be found sat on tables and cabinets around the home.

The Sonos CONNECT:AMP will be in plain view within the room, but again, like many of our products, are designed to blend into your surroundings rather than stand out for all to see. It is finished in an anodized precision machined extrusion aluminium casing, which facilitates passive cooling, but this CONNECT: AMP can also be hidden out of sight and out of mind.

Its dimensions stand at 89mm (h) x 185mm (w) x 207mm (d), so can be easily positioned somewhere discreetly.
