What is multi-room entertainment?


At its most basic, multi-room entertainment involves sending music or video around the home through wires or through the air so you can listen to or watch your content in any room in the house easily and conveniently.

As you may know, there are a myriad of products available which allow you to do this. It feels like every week there are more ‘smart speaker’ type-products made available and although some of these products are really good in their own right, you may want something a bit more professional, high-quality, reliable and discreet. This is where we can help.

Spotify, Apple Music, Netflix & more....


There are many ways to distribute video and audio content and it really depends on your individual needs and requirements to how we design a system. We take in factors such as the services you use (e.g Sky, Netflix, Apple Music and Spotify), the rooms that you would like to watch or listen to those services and the way you would like to control those services.

For example, some customers want a really simple solution. They use their mobile phones to play music and simply want to cast their music to a speaker in the ceiling. However, other customers prefer a more complex system where all the sources are centralised and touchscreens around the home control the music and video allowing you to watch any source in any room at any time.

Elements of a Multi-room Entertainment System

Services & Sources

A service or source is any audio or video that you wish to be shared around the home and played from a pair of speakers or from a television. These services or sources can be modern well known services such as Spotify, Netflix and Apple Music etc or more traditional sources such as Sky, Virgin Media and even your home CCTV system.

Speakers & Televisions

Whatever you choose to play, you will need speakers to listen to your audio or a television to watch your video. Both come in a myriad of options, sizes and budget price-points. For example, in choosing speakers you have many options such as in-ceiling speakers, floor-standing speakers or even hidden plaster-over speakers.

Controls & Apps

Depending on what type of system you have, there are a number of different options you can have to control your multi-room entertainment system. These include your own mobile phone, tablet or even your voice. We can also install something more bespoke such as a smart remote control or touchscreen which gives you advanced functionality.
