Why have music in all your rooms?

Pourquoi avoir de la musique dans toutes ses pièces ?

Music has many benefits, it is a source of well-being which helps reduce stress and anxiety. It acts on the brain's reward system, stimulating the release of dopamine and endorphins. It therefore seems advantageous to invest in a multiroom system and equip your rooms to enjoy the benefits of music throughout your home.

What is multiroom?

A multiroom system is an installation that allows you to stream music wirelessly to several rooms in your house or apartment.

The speakers are connected to each other via WI-FI, while being controlled by one or more smartphones or tablets. You have the choice of broadcasting the same music in all rooms or personalizing listening by broadcasting different music , at different volumes, according to your preferences.

The advantages of multiroom

Total customization

One of the advantages of multiroom is the possibility of sounding each room differently, whether it is the volume or the choice of music, podcast or web radio, while having total control over each listening point. You can choose to leave each speaker independent from the others or group them together, allowing you to sound each room differently, whether by adjusting the volume or choosing different titles.


With a multiroom system, music follows you everywhere. You can move freely through your rooms while still listening to your music.

Ease of use

Another key advantage of multiroom is the ease of installation and control of the system.

Simply plug your system into a power outlet and connect it to your local network, either through a network outlet or via WI-FI. Then everything is done from your smartphone or tablet via a dedicated application . With a simple gesture you can group or separate the speakers to create listening zones and choose to play one or more titles on one or more speakers. It's simple and intuitive , the speakers are autonomous, your smartphone or tablet only acts as a remote control.


Finally, the multiroom system is modular, you can start with two speakers and evolve it gradually according to your desires and needs. This means you don't need to invest in a complete system upfront.
