With the ever-increasing presence of wireless technology in speakers, the days of stringing a home for sound, or installing a different stereo system in every room are fading away like the careers of dozens of 90s one-hit-wonders. These days, you can usually get by with one central music system (even if that happens to be your computer) and then beam the beats all around the house thanks to ever-improving mobile speakers. An additional benefit of mobile speakers is that you can take your music outside the house as well — either to the backyard or a backyard barbecue at a friend’s house.
