Multiroom speakers >
Being able to pipe music all over your home used to be the preserve of the very well heeled, but now, thanks to Wi-Fi technology, pretty much all of us can afford to do it. There are dozens of great multiroom sound systems available. One of the most popular comes from Sonos (sonos.com), a pioneer in this area. Its latest systems are now compatible with Apple Music, with prices starting at just £169 for a single Play:1 speaker. All you have to do is add more speakers in each room where you want to enjoy music, and then control them using the free Sonos Controller app, which is available for Mac, iOS and other devices. You can achieve similar results using rival systems, such as Yamaha’s MusicCast tech (bit.ly/1QTKtyR) is built in to a whole range of audio systems, from single speakers to micro hi-fi systems and even home cinema soundbars, and it’s compatible with music streamed in Apple Lossless format. Prices start at £180 for the WX-030 (bit.ly/1QTKEKM).
