Mul­ti­room speak­ers >

Mac Format - - WIFI SECRETS -

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).

Wi-Fi makes it pos­si­ble to stream mu­sic around your home at rel­a­tively low cost
