Remember the time when you were still using bluetooth to stream music at home?
You probably won't be able to move your mobile phone more than 10 metres away from the speakers because the connection would break off. Have you ever wished to be able to control your music freely at home, whenever and wherever within multiple rooms in your house?
That is the power of wireless speakers.
Using a wifi connection, you will be able to stream music easily within your home. That is probably the main reason why wireless audio systems have growing in popularity for the past few years.
However, with the influx of wireless speakers models out in the market, what should you consider before deciding on one?
Music comes in all kind of sources nowadays.
There are streaming music services such as Spotify and Deezer. There are internet radios which cover radio channels effortlessly around the world. Let's not forget that sometimes we do play music from computers and network attached storage (NAS).
It is important to future proof your wireless speaker system to able to play from most sources of music.
Easy to use?
No doubt, wireless speakers are powerful. But are they easy to use?
Perhaps, we get lazier as technology grows. No matter how many functionalities packed into a product, if the learning curve is high, there is a chance that we would rather go for an inferior product with a fool-proof interface.
Yes. We can stream music to multiple rooms, anytime, anywhere as we deem fit.
However, is it easy to setup? How easy is it to choose a particular music to be streamed to a particular room or play the same music in all the rooms?
When you have multiple speakers with different models in a house, integration could be a problem. You might have a wireless home theatre system in the living room while you have a smaller wireless speaker in your bedroom.
Let's say you would like to play the same music throughout the entire house. The last thing you will want is to have a music lag in different speakers, no matter how minuscule it is. Having the same music playing at different parts in different rooms defeats your purpose of having multiple wireless speakers in the first place.
Let's be honest. If you are just starting to scratch the surface of home wireless music solution, it is unlikely for you to purchase 5 to 6 wireless speakers in one go.
After all, you would love to try and experiment.
Let's say one year later after your purchase, you love the power of connection in your house and would like to expand on your current system. The last thing you want is to find out that you are unable to pair your new speaker with your current setup as it has become obsolete.
Nevertheless, it is important to have a future-proof wireless speaker system.
