Enjoying video and audio content in any room of your home or workspace has now become a reality. Even on fairly lean budgets, one can easily create a Multizone audio-visual setup. Read on and get some effective ideas on different ways in distributing the audiovisual in your whole environment.
Multi-Zone – Single Source Systems with A Receiver
This is the simplest way if you want to create a 2-zone stereo system. If your home theatre receiver has a Speaker A/B switch, which allows connection to the second set of speakers, this might work. Put another set of speakers in another room where you want coverage. Then install the wires of speakers that lead to the speaker B terminal of the receiver. As simple as that.
Multi-Zone – Multi-Source Systems with a Receiver
If you have a new home theatre receiver, you could harness the multi-room or multi-source features it has without incorporating any switch. Some receivers have additional output, which can effectively provide 2-channel audio and video in as many as 3 separate zones.
Advanced Multi-Zone – Multi-Source Control Systems
The multi-zoning control system is a switch box that allows the users to send selected sources (for example, CD, DVD media player, turntable, mobile device radio, etc.) to a specific room in your home or office. This type of control system could send a line-levelling signal to the amplifiers in the selected room. It could also feature built-in amplifiers, sending a speaker levelling signal to any selected room.
Wireless Audio and Video Distribution
Wireless technology is continuing to make steady enhancement to our lifestyles. With a Wi-Fi connection or Bluetooth, which can be controlled using any mobile device, you can enjoy high-quality AV content wherever you are. Mix and match the wireless speakers and you are still guaranteed the same quality and result. This option can be a bit expensive but it is worth it if you are serious about audiovisual distribution in your space.
You can now enjoy music through the entire home or office via distributed audio. At the same time, you can also enjoy the experience of your favourite movies with digital surround sound.
