There’s no doubt that Sonos has forever changed the way we listen to music.  No more CD changers, iPod docks, or adapter cables – simply open the app, search for your favorite artist, song, genre, category, etc., and magically, it begins to play.

With Sonos, your music choices are virtually unlimited, but what about your equipment choices?  What if I want to install an amazing pair of floorstanding speakers in my living room, and a pair of hidden, flush-mounted speakers in the kitchen?  Good news audiophiles – Sonos makes a product called “Connect” that provides the best of both worlds.  The convenience of Sonos can be connected to your favoite audio equipment.

One of our favorite products is an amplifier produced by AudioControl.  The Rialto 400 is a standalone, compact, 2-channel power amplifier with a built-in digital to analog converter (DAC).  This product provides all the power you need to connect your favorite pair of speakers, and an audiophile grade DAC that makes streaming music CD quality.  Want to add a subwoofer?  No problem, there’s an output for that too.

At Starr Systems, we love music.  If you’d like to learn more about how to make your home sound amazing, without compromising the ease of use afforded by products like Sonos, give us a call!
