Speak To Me

May 18, 2016 1:31 am Published by Ever been to a party without music? I didn’t think so. Music is what brings people together, at a party, a night out at a concert, or even over the water cooler at work. So it stands to reason that one of the vital elements in your home is probably your music and a way to play that music.
Technology has revolutionized the way we access just about everything, music included. Today, you can sign on to Spotify, Pandora, iTunes, or Tidal and go through tens of thousands of hours worth of music from your favorite artists, all without much effort. All of these services have pros and cons with them, and Tidal and Apple Music tend to broker exclusive deals with popular artists for exclusive rights to release their music. Luckily, they all offer free trials, so you know what you’re getting before you make that commitment.
So, now that’s you’ve signed up with your favorite streaming service, what are you going to play your music on? Of course you can always use your phone (put inside a cup if you can’t find any other way!), but good music deserves a good speaker to go alongside it. As with most things, speaker options run the gamut from high-end to the aforementioned putting your phone inside a cup trick. (Here’s a super informative article on whether high-end audio is actually worth it.) But the most common seem to be somewhere in the middle, with Bose, Beats, and Jambox.    
Probably one of the most important things to look at when buying speakers is their connectivity. Bluetooth connectivity is paramount, because nobody wants to feel like their phone is tethered to one area, and they need to sit right next to their speaker to scroll through social media or check emails. Music is all about going with the flow and finding what you like, which extends to how you get your music as well. It should be effortless and ultimately, make you happy.
Finally, there is another option. If you’re hip and looking to invest in a very traditional method of music delivery, try a record player. Not only will it feel vintage, but a beautiful record player will up the cool factor of your home. Plus, the hunt for records is a very fun one. Local record stores, garage sales, your parent’s basement, even Urban Outfitters, all of these places are prime spots for picking up your favorite music in an unconventional format.
