Wireless Music Streaming Made Easy with Airplay and Bluetooth Music Zones in Newly Renovated Juhu Apartment


Wifi and Networking




The key to this setup was providing clear and dynamic audio in individual rooms across the residence where our client could stream Airplay and Bluetooth music from their phone or tablet. Whether it be a workout playlist or dinner with friends, all options needed to be user friendly and quickly accessible. The Guest Bedroom was a workout area as well and a requirement for good low frequency response for their workout mix was a must. The Living Room would be a combination surround sound system for movie watching and entertainment zone for party music with guests. Last, but certainly not least, a dinner mix needed to be provisioned for when enjoying relaxing dinners at home or a secondary zone of audio when guests are over.

The NHT speakers as always were extremely impressive and proved to be the favorite speakers of choice for our client’s music sessions. Airplay streaming of music through the Apple TV’s or Bluetooth proved to be incredibly user friendly and easy for our client to use. They could easily turn on or off independent zones in their residence and control volume from the airplay or Bluetooth stream sent from their phone or tablets. DNM amplifiers are a company we will definitely be working with in the future. They provided an extremely clear and powerful output despite their diminutive size and can be easily placed away in AV cabinets or other tight spaces. Airplay worked extremely well as a solution when wired. Our experience in this project serves as a lesson for us to ensure a cat6 is run to all AV locations for wired connections to Apple TV’s or other such devices for future installations.
