ROCKLEDGE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AIRHOME is the antithesis of all “boombox in every room” solutions the market has been forced to accept as integrated multi-room home audio until now, says inventor Logan Jacobs, CEO & Founder of Zenovia Electronics and former co-founder and bass player of recording and touring alternative rock band Social Code.
Jacobs says when you play music to speakers wired into ceilings and walls throughout your home, the physics of that action and the surface area those speakers cover puts your audio experience literally on another level. “There is no way to get that sound if you are using counter-top speakers that are essentially just boomboxes -- even if you have the best boombox ever, it’s still just two tiny speakers in a little box,” he says. “It's like a glorified clock radio and they sound mediocre and always will.”
And then there’s the clutter. Other wireless audio products sit on your counter and take up space. Who wants a “house full of boomboxes” says Jacobs. So, until now, the only way to get true home automation was with complex systems that required a technician and tens of thousands of dollars.
“You don’t want a house full of boomboxes - and you also don’t want a closet full of complex components and your own custom IT guy on speed dial,” says Jacobs. It was time to truly rethink the home audio experience from top to bottom and to redefine home stereos, both how they’re connected and how they’re enjoyed. And that’s what he did.
AIRHOME is for music lovers who love a quality interaction with their music. People who like a ‘Zen’ style of life, where interior designs and lines are clean, and clutter is out of site. Where the rack of components in their home entertainment system are reduced to nothing because that’s what they want - a flat-panel TV with Apple TV® connected on the wall, and AIRHOME tucked away neatly downstairs somewhere.
“We sell high quality music in every room, minus the clutter. We imagined a home where the room literally comes alive with music and we designed a system to do just that,” says Jacobs. “AIRHOME enhances and amplifies your life soundtrack very intimately within the walls of your home, never intruding, always responding when you simply press play,” he says. No remotes. No additional 'middleman' software.
“We are not fans of the idea of selling ‘a house full of stereos’ like so many companies promoting wireless home audio today; we prefer that our customers enjoy a house full of music,” says Jacobs.
He achieved his goal by passionately committing to the Apple AirPlay® standard as a way to bring out the audiophile and music lover in everyone. Jacobs calls AirPlay the “end game for wireless audio” because of the simplicity of the user experience. It's simple, and anybody can use it. That's what makes it great.
