Amplify Next Football Season With Whole-Home Audio

An in-ground pool with outdoor whole-home audio speakers installed by the water.

IT’S NEVER TOO SOON TO BE THINKING ABOUT FOOTBALL SEASON 

Imagine the biggest game of the season is about to start. Your friends and family are gathered at your house, snacks are ready, and cold drinks are in the cooler. And whether your guests watch the Cowboys indoors or chill by the pool, gameplay can be heard in every area, thanks to whole-home audio.  

For homeowners in the "Big D," whole-home audio is the ultimate game changer (pun intended). Whole-home audio, or multi-room audio, is a system that allows you to stream audio to speakers located throughout your house in Dallas, TX. This means you can listen to the game (or music) indoors, outdoors, upstairs, or downstairs—everywhere simultaneously. 

Here's a simple guide to getting started. And if you’d like to start your whole-home audio installation? Contact Texadia Systems here.

Indoors or Outside, Set the Mood with Whole-Home Audio

Sync & Listen to Music in Every Area of Your Home 

How do you listen to music today? Maybe you use a portable Bluetooth speaker or voice-activated device that connects to music streaming. Or perhaps you have a turntable system with a pair of loudspeakers on either side of the record player. 

Whichever method you use, that can only fill one room at a time with music. Some people try to spread music by blasting their speaker’s volume, which is incredibly unpleasant for anyone standing close to the speaker and leads to poor quality sound. But there’s a better way to enjoy music, podcasts, and audiobooks at home: a whole-home audio system. 

Whole home audio works by connecting speakers to play in unison across your house. And with weatherproof speakers in the lawn, you can extend multi-room listening outdoors, too. 

How does it work—and what are your options? Here’s how to get started with whole-home audio in your Dallas, TX home. And to learn more about multi-room audio installations, contact Texadia Systems here.

Elevate Your Hotel’s Experience with Distributed Audio

From the Bar to the Hallways, Control Music In Every Area 

When someone visits Dallas for the first time, which hotel will they choose to book? To land a place on “Top Hotel” lists, hotels need to create an inspiring ambiance that has guests wanting to stay at the pool, bar, or restaurant rather than leave for the night. 

Many factors influence a hotel’s atmosphere: the decorations, the lighting, and the hospitality. But one component that cannot be overlooked is audio. If you want guests to relax and feel at home, a silent lobby won’t help. Whether your hotel’s personality is suited to 1920s jazz or modern indie rock, the music that plays through your hotel can transform the experience for your visitors. 

With a distributed speaker system, you can control hotel audio across the building (and outdoors, too) from the same interface. Read on to learn how distributed audio works and can help your Texas hotel!

Spotify May Be Popular, But Is It the Best Option for Whole-Home Audio?

If you’re investing in a high-end sound system that plays throughout the house, you’ll want to play music that’s high-quality, too. So, where can you find hi-fi lossless audio online?

Invisible Speakers Are Increasingly Popular in Home Theaters & Multi-Room Systems. Could Your Home Benefit?

Acoustics vs. Soundproofing: Why Both Are Essential in Commercial Spaces

20220208-181639TEXSYS_JanuaryBlog4_SoundMasking_PlanoTX

Minimize Distractions & Echoes in Your Workplace 

Your workplace may look great and feel comfortable – but how does it sound? Sound is an often-overlooked component in creating a successful work environment. If voices are echoing off the conference room walls – or carried across the entire office – your staff may end up feeling distracted and frustrated.

Soundproofing and acoustics are two terms often used interchangeably, but both offer very different solutions for sound. Tactics like installing absorptive panels or a sound masking system can help balance the sound in your commercial space.

So, what is the difference between acoustics and soundproofing, and what can both offer your Plano, TX business? We share all you need to know below. And to get started with sound masking solutions, contact Texadia Systems here to discuss your business’s needs.

Debunking Sound Masking Myths to Add Peace & Quiet to Your Business

debunking-sound-masking-myths-to-add-peace-quiet-to-your-business

Make Your Office More Private and Increase Focus and Productivity

It’s hard to ‘get in the zone’ at work when distracting phone calls and conversations surround your desk or office. Recently, many people have said they prefer working from home for this very reason, while others (who probably have busier households) find working remotely too distracting.

Nevertheless, in your office, you want your staff to feel comfortable and empowered to get their work done. No one likes feeling like they have no privacy while in meetings or that they can’t answer a phone call without the entire department listening in. On the flip side, those same coworkers perhaps don’t want to eavesdrop and would rather finish their work by five. 

The cure for incessant disruptions and noises? Sound masking. But what is sound masking? Many people think it’s something that it’s not—and end up installing solutions that do little to help. 

As a commercial integrator based in the Frisco, TX area, we’re here to break down those myths and share what will actually help your business. And to learn more about corporate technology solutions, subscribe to our monthly newsletter here.

What’s in Our Listening Room?

It may sound melodramatic, but a high-end audio system can change lives. Hear us out! Because music is deeply linked to our emotional experiences, when you listen to audio throughout your house, you’ll find yourself in higher spirits. In fact, a recent music study surveyed 30,000 people and tracked the lifestyles of 30 homes to see what happens when people listen to music for a week. The research found that, when listening to music, families and couples talked to each other more, felt less stressed, felt more inspired, enjoyed cooking more, and were more active.

And with speakers that make your music collection sing, you’ll be compelled to enjoy your favorites more often and unlike ever before. But you may be wondering: how good can it actually sound? That’s why we built our dedicated high-end audio listening room in Addison, TX.

To hear the magic of high-end audio for yourself, give us a call to make an appointment in our demo facility. We’ll put on your choice of music and listen to the rich bass and hear distinct voices and instruments. What can you expect to see in our listening room?
