- Tip Sheet
A whole-house audio system lets you listen to music in every room in your house.
Simple multi-room audio can be achieved by connecting a second set of speakers to the "B" speaker outputs on your stereo receiver.
Use a speaker selector to feed a single speaker output to speakers in multiple rooms.
Some A/V receivers have multiple-zone switching, either powered or unpowered.
Professional whole-house audio systems use multi-source preamplifiers and distribution amplifiers.
Digital media servers let you play music stored on their hard disks to client devices located in other rooms.
Network media hubs let you stream music stored on your computer's hard disk to any room in your house.
