9.5. Whole-House Audio

In this phase, you'll create a system for distributing audio from your computer throughout your house. If you're lucky enough to already have such a system in place, or if you only plan to listen to the time-shifted radio through a single pair of speakers, you can skip this phase.

Sound quality, cost, ease of installation, and portability are the most significant factors when choosing a whole-house audio system. At the high end, you can install whole-house audio that provides home theater–quality sound to multiple speakers in every room of your house. These systems typically provide controls built into the wall of each room that allow you to control the volume and other aspects of the audio equipment. You can find an excellent description of such systems at http://www.hometech.com/learn/audio.html.
