What is hot in home Audio, Video & Automation Technology?

Home technology news will be very big this year. The 2017 review starts with Amazon Echo ( Alexa) and Google Home, who just started to show where the possible next large leap in Home Automation Technology may be going. As Control4 platinum level dealers we create a lot of high end automated homes. Multi room music control is the number one option most customers ask for. Smart home lighting is a close second. Quality stand alone Home Theaters are often part of the mix, and control over home security and home comfort including shade control is very popular.

Home Cinema is also improving by leaps and bounds, with new technologies such as Dolby ATMOS, HDR, 4K and higher resolution formats taking hold. That said, cinema seating, D-box motion simulation and kaleidescape movie servers are not new, but still ultra cool.

Epson’s LS10500 laser projector and Paradigm Persona speakers are a couple of this years category benchmark products. The last year revealed more people streamed music that ever before, and streaming in lossless formats from Tidal, Deezer, Spotify and others will be the growth areas for this revolution in music enjoyment. Digital to analog converters deliver much better sound from your chosen streaming box, and the Bryston BDA-3 or Marantz HD-DAC1 are great in each of their respective categories.
