Can I still have a hard-wired, non-streaming system installed?
Recently some clients have asked if hard-wired, non-streaming residential music systems can still be installed. The reasons vary from vacation homes with no Internet service to clients with no interest in using streaming music services. The answer is yes. We have installed this type of system a few times during the past few months for clients who want to play their favorite over the air radio station or their CD collection throughout their homes. The basic design includes a receiver with external devices such as a CD player and/or turntable connected to a multi-room amplifier, which provides the power to individual rooms. Each room should have in wall volume control that allows each room to be turned off and set the volume level. Some people will use a speaker selector box connected to the receiver in place of the multi-room amplifier. This approach will degrade the sound quality and we strongly recommend against the speaker selector box solution. Please visit our website @ www.wbsouth.com.
