The ability to have high-fidelity (Hi-Fi) music in every room of a home is not limited to owners with unlimited budgets. With existing technology, the cost of installing a whole house audio system has fallen to the point where such a system can be a reality for virtually any homeowner.

Installing a distributed audio system, one that distributes audio throughout the house, allows anybody to virtually replicate his or her audio source equipment (iPod, CD, internet radio, etc.) into every room of the house.
