Are you looking into a multi-room speaker system? If so, no doubt you have started to realize there are many options for a whole-home audio system. You may be wondering how to choose.
There are many options for a house-wide sound system in your Chesterfield, MO-area home. Perhaps the one brand you have heard about is Sonos. Sonos is a good system that focuses on ease of use and aggregation of popular streaming sources into one app to make it easy to play one or more sources in different rooms. Like Apple, it has its ecosystem where it mostly (with a couple of exceptions) works with its own speakers. There are other wireless systems, too, like Denon's HEOS. These are popular consumer options for multi-room speaker systems that rely on a robust Wi-Fi system for larger systems.
We haven’t even mentioned Amazon, Google, or Apple! Each of these companies offers smart speakers that can also function as multiroom speaker systems. What route should you take? As in most things, it depends on what is most important to you. Let’s dive in below to help you decide.
