What is Multiroom?
Not everyone has good knowledge over what the term Multiroom entails - therefore we will go in depth here with what multiroom really is. A Multiroom system is a network of interconnected speakers in your home that allows you to play music wirelessly throughout your home. Your speakers and wireless music players can play together in different rooms through your wifi network. By using a simple app, everyone in the home can individually control both music and volume from each their smartphone, in different rooms..
How Multiroom works
Unlike Bluetooth wireless speakers, you get a much better listening experience with Multiroom. The sound becomes neither interrupted nor disturbed by text messages or phone calls. You also do not need to connect between your smartphone and the speaker every time you use it.
It's super easy to get started using Multiroom, all you need is your smartphone and a speaker that supports Multiroom. It can ex. be through AirPlay 2 or Google Cast. The speaker gets connected wirelessly via wi-fi, so all you have to do is set up your speaker for wi-fi via ex. Google Home app. Once your speakers are connected to your home network, you can create an internal network of speakers that can play together.
All the sound furniture in the Lemus HOME collection has a Multiroom function through AirPlay 2 and Google Cast. Which means, it can be integrated with other Lemus HOME audio furniture in a Multiroom setup or play alone with other speakers with Airplay, Spotify Connect or Chromecast built-in. You can thus play different music in different rooms or play the same music throughout the home.
You stream the music directly from your chosen streaming service, this can for example be from TIDAL, Spotify, Apple Music, Yousee Music etc.
One can listen to the same song in every room or hear an audiobook in one room, while another family member listens to music in another room
The smart thing about Multiroom is, that it can be easily expanded and create a greater sound experience in your home. You can easily connect the Lemus HOME to other devices - large and small, so you can adapt the sound experience to the room you want. A smaller smart speaker in the bathroom, Lemus HOME in the living room and a completely third speaker in the kitchen - the possibilities are endless with Multiroom.
Multiroom speakers come in many different designs, sizes and product categories.
From the small and smart such as.Harman Kardon Citation ONE MKII or Marshall Stanmore to the medium sound with BeoPlay A9 or Audio Pro Drumfire and for true Hi-Fi sound with Lemus HOME Classic. Every room and every need can be covered with Multiroom.
Multiroom with existing Sonos setup
Do you already have Sonos at home and are a diligent user of the Multiroom function? Then you know how much joy Multiroom can give to the music experiences. Sonos, which is one of the most well-known Multiroom speakers, works with a closed system which means that you usually build your Multiroom setup exclusively consisting of Sonos speakers.
The quality of the audio experience
There is always a big difference in speakers in terms of sound quality. Wireless music has made huge improvements in recent years, so they can catch up with CD quality or Hi-res resolution. Systems like Sonos support CD quality audio streaming whereas Lemus HOME supports hi-res resolution streaming
So always choose a Multiroom speaker based on the given need for the given space. If you need great sound experiences, always look for speakers that support hi-res sound quality.
