You probably are already familiar with MP3, the mainstream digital audio format that allowed you to listen to music on the go.
Did you know, however, that MP3 tracks removed bits of audio to make the files smaller so that they could fit on your portable music-storage device?
That’s where lossless audio – a digital format that kept an audio file’s entire structure – entered the picture. The problem: Lossless audio files remained too sizeable to store anywhere efficiently.
Audio streaming has changed the game entirely. You no longer have to store music to listen to it. You can subscribe to a streaming service, create a playlist and listen to it without downloading each file.
While most streaming services still offer MP3-quality tracks, some provide lossless audio within their subscription plans.
You can listen to high-quality audio from anywhere in your home and not have to worry about missing bits of the track.
Here’s one way to improve your whole home audio system: Add convenience to it.
A custom electronics expert can integrate your audio system with an easy-to-manage control platform so that you can handle your home’s music on the go.
Want to turn on your entire audio system with the press of a single button or instead play music only within a specific area of your residence?
With a control system, you can create “zones” that customize where audio will play within your home. Best of all, you can easily access and choose content directly from your control platform.
Most control systems have plenty of management options to choose from – including in-wall keypads or touchscreens, remote controls or even smartphone and tablet applications. Just choose whichever method you find most convenient.
The last thing you want is for your audio to buffer and to stop mid-track.
You can take steps to prevent this by upgrading your home’s Internet network so that it can support streaming high-quality audio files throughout your residence.
Consider using a router that has high bandwidth and dual-band capability for supporting massive amounts of traffic or adding wireless access points to expand Internet presence to all corners of your property.
Once your network infrastructure can support high-quality audio, all you need to do is enjoy it.
