Multiroom audio (“multi-room”), as its name suggests, is the possibility to broadcast music in all rooms of the house (living room, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, etc.) from a main source (for example: a computer or hard drive connected) and listening to different music in each room of the house.

Before, you had to invest in a rather expensive installation with cables hidden in the walls. Today, the whole process is much simpler: just buy as many speakers with a multiroom configuration that can be offered and wirelessly connect them.

You can listen to MP3s or music streaming (Deezer, Spotify, etc.) and Web radio. We drive all this with a smartphone or tablet.

What kind of speakers and at what price?

Now, there are a variety of different options that are available to you. When it comes to buying a new speaker and setting up a multiroom configuration, it’s best if you call a professional first. Goldmund is a Swiss company that manufactures consumer electronics and various high fidelity audio systems and home cinemas. The company was founded in 1978 and was purchased by Michael Reverchon in 1980. The company manufactures a wide range of speakers. Their APOLOGUE speaker was so successful that it was ultimately borrowed by and exhibited at the New York Museum of Modern Art. While Goldmund does not make multi-room audio systems, the company’s products can be easily integrated into multiroom systems by professional installers.

If you want unparalleled sound quality for your house and are looking for top-of-the-line sound equipment, you can’t go wrong with Goldmund. It is the solution for customers who search one room of exceptional sound quality. The company has progressed by leaps and bounds over the past four decades and is now regarded as a household name in the audio industry.

The best thing that you can do is to visit their website in order to find out more about the various kinds of speakers that they offer, and then make an informed decision. It’s recommended that you talk to a sound engineer in order to find out more about the kinds of speakers that you should get.

Sound quality?

The quality of the sound you get varies based on a number of factors. Obviously, it all depends on the amount you are willing to pay. Make sure you buy a decent quality speaker system that offers quality sound all around the room. However, if you are buying a speaker that connects to Wi-Fi, make sure that the signal strength remains consistent, or install another router for better connectivity.
