Stream Music at Home the Best and Easiest Way

Streaming music at home without having to rely on just using your smartphone and an external speaker is now possible and easier than you think.

In the past, listening to streaming music was quite limited since it meant that only rooms or areas of your home that had this particular set up could play streaming music, which wasn’t that bad, but it did leave out other rooms of your home. And then there’s the fact that the quality wasn’t necessarily the best since you were forced to listen to your favorite tunes through one external speaker that wasn’t of the best quality.

Fast forward to now, and you’ll find that there are home audio systems that are wireless and provide the ability to stream music throughout your entire home in multiple zones, from multiple sources, and in high-quality sound. Imagine being able to listen to 80’s rock in the garage, Mozart in the kitchen, and the latest Techno music in the backyard – all from one audio system that can be controlled remotely, or from one control panel, and all of it streaming! Sound too good to be true? Nope, because there are various audio systems that can be used to stream music this way.

Stream Music at Home in Multiple Rooms and from the Palm of Your Hand

VSSL A.6 and A.3 Audio Streaming Systems
VSSL wireless audio products are easy to use and will enable you to hear music from a wide range of music apps, like Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, and any other, in multiple zones and from multiple sources. VSSL uses Native Streaming Technology to allow you to control your music directly through your favorite mobile apps on your smartphone or tablet without the need of a special remote control or third-party controller app. You’ll be able to easily control the selected zones and adjust volume in your home audio through your preferred music or audio playing app; which means you can play music using Spotify, or any other music app, and select which room you wish to hear it and adjust volume levels without leaving the selected app.

VSSL offers two audio streaming systems in their A Series – the A.6 and the A.3. The A.6 will allow you to stream 6 zones of audio to 6 different rooms from 6 different sources. The A.3 will allow you to stream 3 zones of audio to 3 different rooms from 3 different sources.

The VSSL and Nuvo wireless audio systems are great for streaming music throughout your entire home. Both are top-notch audio systems that offer an easy and convenient way to control streaming music in multiple rooms and from multiple sources. But for those of you who prefer to stick with existing equipment that may be a little dated, don’t worry, we have a solution for you too. You can now have the option of streaming into your existing amp by adding a Bluetooth receiver.

Channel VisionChannel Vision Bluetooth Audio Streaming Receiver
This device is an in-wall streaming receiver that uses Bluetooth technology to provide wireless audio streaming and amplification from Bluetooth compatible devices to connected ARIA speakers in a single room. It has a Bluetooth range of 147 feet and features auto-connect pairing, enhanced audio acoustics, a reliable streaming connection, and can even link with the Amazon Alexa DOT to play music from any music app. Although this device limits streaming music to one room, it’s a lot better than connecting your mobile device to a low quality, external speaker that you have to worry about charging all the time or have it connected to a USB power cord. To control streaming music, you’ll need to add the Channel Vision ARIA mobile app for iOS and Android to your smartphone or tablet.

If you would like to easily stream music throughout your entire home, we can help. Just call us toll-free at 800-266-8765 (7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Pacific, Monday – Friday) for free tech support and product advice. You can also email us at service@homecontrols.com or visit www.homecontrols.com.
