This is an age of rapid innovation and evolution for your listening pleasure. The absolute golden quality of sound possible in the connected home is limitless. You can have studio-quality authenticity with endless choices — right at your fingertips. Welcome to the Golden Age of audio technology!
Recently on Mad Money, Sonos CEO Patrick Spence revealed three secular trends driving the audio industry:
- Streaming music
- Social audio
- Direct-to-consumer video content
For today’s smart-home dweller, music and podcasts are easily accessed via simple voice or touch commands. Audio aficionados have the freedom to enjoy a listening experience through high-fidelity speakers from Sonos, B&W, Revel, and more. Why settle for mediocre audio technology when you can hear music the way the artist intended it?
Social audio is here to further expand your listening pleasure. With origins in the Clubhouse platform, social audio, like Twitter Spaces, utilizes audio as the primary form of communication and offers the experience of virtual audio rooms. Now you can more easily connect with fellow audiophiles about the music you love and enhance your collection with an ever-broadening sphere of inspiration, all from the comfort of your home — in surround sound.
There’s nothing better than a movie night in your home theater with cinematic-quality audio bouncing off the walls and vibrating through your body. Some audiophiles will say the VCR was the historical relic that started the Golden Age of audio. No matter your stance, smart video displays and televisions like Samsung’s The Wall, Séura, and LG TV provide an immersive, lifelike experience alone or when paired with hi-fi speakers. Direct-to-consumer streaming content packages from AT&T TV Now is a brilliant way to fulfill your every movie night desire.
Whether you’ve moved to an island oasis during the remote-work reshuffling of the pandemic, are now designing and building your dream home, or are contemplating some lush upgrades, we’ve got you covered. The Golden Age of audio offers plenty of creative options for opulent entertainment or reclusive relaxation. We can’t wait to give you more suggestions.
Responsive Living, the term coined by Acoustic Architects founders, Aaron Flint and Spencer Hauldren, is the concept of seamlessly enhancing the client’s unique lifestyle using smart home technology. Responsive Living allows you to interact with your space via touch input, voice command, and predictive automation, placing you in full control of your home.
