Now, let’s talk about installation. There is a lot of content out there about DIY installation vs. having a professional come in and configure your system for you. The bottom line? You always want a professional. Not convinced? Keep reading.


Installation

Though Sonos DIY installation is possible, working with a professional installer is the best way to make sure you get the most out of your system. Professional installers can make sure your speakers are hidden from view so they don’t take up precious counter space. We will also set up your system for proper amplification, giving you the sound quality you have been dreaming of. This can’t be achieved through DIY installation unless you really know what you are doing.


Sonos Works With Other Devices

 

The beauty of home technology is the ability for different devices to talk to each other. Sonos can sync with different smart home systems such as Savant and Control4. A professional can add a Sonos Connect to an existing whole house sound or automated system. This can open up a wide range of streaming content with only one additional device. We’ll make sure everything is connected to the wireless network so you worry less about connectivity and more on which song you’re going to enjoy next.


Wired vs. Wireless Streaming

 

 

Wireless isn’t always the best option. Signals can cut in and out making your system not work properly. As professional integrators, we know how to design and wire sound systems while keeping the aesthetics of your home’s design.
