Step 1: Choosing Your Streamer

The music streamer is the backbone of your audio install, so choosing the right one is key. When selecting a streamer, it’s good to consider exactly how many streams of content your customer will use. A typical user-to-stream ratio is 2:1; therefore a four-person household will likely need two streams of audio.

You also want to consider how much local music content your customer has. Autonomic streamers can store a finite number of songs on the device itself, but they’re also compatible with external hard drives if additional storage is needed.

Step 2: Choosing Your Amplifier

To determine which Autonomic amp you should purchase, you first need to determine how many rooms (zones) will be playing audio. Add more zones by using multiple amplifiers or utilizing line-level outputs.

You can also use Autonomic amplifiers for standard multi-channel applications where matrixing and IP control is needed.

Once you leave the jobsite, your customer takes complete control of the system. This may seem daunting, but Autonomic provides three superb control options to best serve your customer’s needs.

Choose from our list of compatible control systems, the innovative TuneBridge app for a standalone option, or an in-wall keypad for local control within the room.
