Our partner, Sonos, is the pioneer in wireless audio speakers and commissioned a study on the effects of music. They surveyed 30,000 homes across the globe and even went into 30 homes in eight different countries to see what happens when people don’t listen to music.
You might intuit that listening to music has positive effects, but you may not think about what happens when there’s no music in your life. The results were enlightening. When music was playing, people on average were 24% less irritable and 25% more inspired. Overall, respondents reported a 16% increase in positive feelings when listening to music.
Such is the power of music. Most of us have a favorite song or artist that always makes us feel more upbeat, no matter what else is going on around us. Also, don’t underestimate how you listen to music. Hearing it in high quality makes much more of an emotional impact than listening through a tinny speaker or low-quality earbuds.
One way to uplift the mood and wellbeing in your Atlanta, GA residence is with a high quality, professional, and custom home audio installation. If you are a lover of music, read on to see how to transform your home.

We love to talk about home automation, but they say a picture is worth a thousand words. If a picture is worth that much, then an in-person experience must be worth even more. This is why we're holding a special event on November 21 at our Atlanta showroom to show off some of the latest home automation technology from Control4.
What will we be showing? Control4 is introducing a new remote control called the Neeo. This is no ordinary remote control, though, and we have more details about it below. A rep from Holm will be on hand to show off the latest in outdoor lighting. For movie and home theater fans, we will also have reps from brand partners Epson and Kaleidescape to talk about the most recent iterations on projectors and movie servers. Of course, we will have food and drinks too to accompany all the festivities.
So, mark the date – November 21, from 4-8 PM – for the #C4Yourself Control4 event at our Atlanta showroom. Now keep reading below for some more details on the Control4 Neeo remote, because you will have a chance to win one! And be sure to RSVP HERE.
