A multi-source audio control system is essentially a switcher to which various sources are connected e.g. smart phone/tabled CD/DVD, mp3 player, turntable, media player, radio, and more. Once these sources are connected to the system, they can be played in any room (or zone) in your space. Allowing music to be played in the living room at one volume and news in the kitchen at a different volume. By integrating the audio control system with the smart home, responsive automation can be used, for example starting your favourite play list when you arrive, or switching off all players at bedtime or when leaving. The possibilities are endless once the system infrastructure has been installed. These systems are known as multi-room or mulit-zone audio with multi-source.
