At west elm, we know there’s a good chance you love music. People from around the world and all ages have favorite singers, bands and composers. Part of enjoying awesome tunes to the max has to do with your sound system. Precision speakers make a difference because they let you pick up on all the nuances of voice and every note of a guitar solo or bass line that gets your blood pumping. That’s probably why you feel a sense of pride about your home speakers, and why you like to show off your collection of music tracks and movies when friends visit. Music and other digital media doesn’t define you but definitely gives you a way to express yourself. That’s the idea behind our Sonos collaboration: to bring you expansive and immersive sound that makes you feel right at home in any room.
Being able to completely customize your sound setup puts absolute creative control in your hands. You decide how many speakers you want, how to position them and what kind of power output you want. What makes that kind of versatility possible? Wi-Fi is one major factor. There’s virtually no limit to where you can place Sonos Wi-Fi speakers. For example, if you want some soft music in your bedroom to greet you when you wake up, a single speaker on your nightstand or dresser might what you need. However, if you want to belt out your favorite songs along with the artist or dance around the bedroom in your socks, adding a second speaker or a larger one increases your output for whatever rock anthem you need before heading off to work.
One of the best things about our Sonos Wi-Fi speakers? They’re all united under the power of a single application. This app gives you control of your music via your smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC or music player. Want to broadcast a single playlist through the entire house, with a network of speakers in your bedroom, kitchen, living room, and bathroom? Go for it! No wires or power cords to worry about. You can even set up your own wireless network that’s specifically dedicated to your system using a Sonos wireless network transmitter.
Music has an incredible effect on your entire day. For one thing, sounds have the power to affect your emotions, which is something you’ve probably noticed. Some songs can bring back happy memories spent with friends and others are definitely geared toward increasing your heart rate and getting you on your feet. Overall, happy music gives you a positive attitude and extra energy, in addition to releasing endorphins that make you feel good. Pleasant sounds reduce stress, boost your immune system and reduce your chances of having depression. Scientific terminology aside, you probably notice how much fun it is and how much faster your daily routine goes when you’re listening to songs you love.
Wi-Fi speakers are a big help for providing ambience for parties. Your living room and dining room can both have the atmosphere — refined, laidback or dance until you drop — you want with an effortless swipe of your fingers. Create a playlist or two, and just press play for automatic entertainment or mix up songs on the fly if you feel like it. In fact, our Sonos system is so awesome that you can even play different tracks in individual rooms simultaneously. That way, people can relax and sip drinks in the kitchen while other guests are getting their groove thing on in the living room.
Customization heads to new levels when it comes to setting up your entertainment center in the living room, family room, bedroom or anywhere else you have a TV. Each speaker is powerful enough on its own to transmit clear audio of your favorite shows or movies. Each additional speaker you add opens up options for extra channels that lets you create a complete surround sound system however you want.
