What you need to know about car stereo systems.
In a few short weeks you will be able to enjoy your music more deeply, thanks to an overhaul of how you listen to your music.
A new car stereo system that can stream audio from the internet to your speakers, for example, could mean more intimate listening.
For a start, you will no longer need to have a separate computer and speakers to pair your stereo with the speakers.
Instead, you could just plug your stereo into your smartphone or tablet, then have your speakers send audio to the speakers, bypassing your computer.
This could also allow you to enjoy music at home without having to get out of the car and head to a music venue.
And because you won’t need to plug your speakers into the car stereo when you are at home, you won´t have to worry about getting an annoying, jittery sound.
There are several advantages to this change.
First, it means you will have more control over how much you can listen to audio, says Dan Levett, senior digital audio producer at The Media Group.
“This could be a big boost to your listening experience because you’ll be able control the volume of each speaker independently,” he says.
Second, the technology makes it possible to pair stereo systems up to eight speakers, which means your music can be heard in stereo when two speakers are not available.
Third, it could allow you, for the first time, to listen to music in two places at once.
But it also means you are getting more intimate when you listen with a smartphone or an iPad, and you will probably notice the sound will have a more “thick” sound than if you were listening to your car speakers from the front seat.
And while you can’t use your stereo to stream music to the headphones you use for listening to podcasts, you can still stream music on your computer via a USB connection.
That means you can enjoy your favourite music while you are working, or playing games, or watching videos on your TV.
It could also open up the door for you to use a third-party stereo system for the next time you are travelling.
