Benefits of Installed Systems
In the age of wireless, you may be wondering why you should consider having a music system installed in to the fabric your home? In some respects an installed music system is similar to a central heating system, in that it is neat and tidy and extremely reliable. Using plug-in heaters in each room is an option, but it introduces clutter, in the form of boxes and trailing wires – just like a ‘wireless’ music system in fact. Furthermore, the level of integration offered by an installed solution is absolute, so that its visual impact on the home is hardly noticeable. A further advantage of a wired-for-wireless solution is its total reliability. There won’t be any drop outs, because all of the signals are passed down a 100% reliable wired infrastructure. This is even more important for new higher resolution music streaming services, which some wireless systems will be unable to support due to bandwidth limitations.
A further and even less predictable factor, is that in higher housing density locations such as cities and surrounding suburbs wireless systems literally compete with each other for ‘wireless space’. This means that if your neighbours choose to buy the latest most power wireless routers, this could impact on the performance of any wireless system.
