There was a time – not too long ago – when integrated smart home audio systems were very much considered to be the domain of the seasoned audiophile, but the soundscape has changed, and for the better.
The ubiquitous hi-fi systems were (and still are) quite impressive arrays of amplifiers, tuners, media players and turntables with, at times imposing speakers standing tall but, for many of us, the way we listen to music more than the systems themselves has driven the change in home audio we are familiar with today.
Streaming music from the likes of Spotify, Tidal, Napster, Amazon Music and iTunes has delivered a sea-change shift away from physical CDs and vinyl*, and there’s little sign this will change any time soon.
Our lives are busy, yet we still want our favourite music to accompany us; wherever we go in our home, music forms the soundtrack of our lives and it helps introduce another layer of life to our homes.
Hi-fi systems were also synonymous with a myriad of controls and cables (something which was a perennial bugbear for so many of us!), and compromises over where it all could and should fit into your home.
Increasingly, the home audio systems designed and installed by Majik House are designed to be as invisible as possible with ceiling recessed speakers, ones fixed behind cinema screens or even completely embedded into walls and plastered over, without any compromise on sound quality.
Even when speakers are in plain sight, they are discreet and unobtrusive, designed to deliver flawless sound without impacting on your style.
Right here, right now, we can’t say which audio system is right for your home because, first, we need to understand how you want to control and select your audio, how you want to use the spaces in your home and design a system that brings everything harmoniously together.
We can tell you that Majik House use leading audio brands that we know intimately and trust, including Monitor Audio, Yamaha, KEF, Linn, Arcam, Wisdom and SONOS.
Yes, that’s right, SONOS. You can be forgiven for thinking that these ‘entry level’ smart speaker systems would have no place in an advanced audio system, but they certainly can pack a punch and offer impressive music streaming and distribution capabilities that are simply too impressive to ignore.
We can also tell you that we can integrate your audio system to work the way you want it to work – controlled by your iPhone, iPad or Android device, using Control4 as part of your whole house automation, or even voice control.
Like the design of your home and the décor within, your choice of integrated audio system is unique to you and we’ll design and install a solution that suits your own taste and budget, including:
- Single-room audio solutions to full-home systems
- TV surround sound
- Dynamic Dolby Atmos sound for your home cinema
- Weatherproof external systems for outdoor living
- Bookshelf and Portable Speakers, for audio on the go!
- Invisible speakers – in walls, in ceilings, behind screens
- Simple to use control systems
An intelligent multi-room smart home system by Majik House will provide flawless audio throughout the home, where everyone can hear what they want, when they want.
