Airhome connects wirelessly to in-ceiling speakers using Apple AirPlay and wi-fi technology, giving you the chance to stream tracks from your Apple device to all rooms of your home.

Jacobs said: "We sell high quality music in every room, minus the clutter. We imagined a home where the room literally comes alive with music and we designed a system to do just that.

"Airhome enhances and amplifies your life soundtrack very intimately within the walls of your home, never intruding, always responding when you simply press play."

The Amp40 "activates" one room of your home and costs $340, while the Amp5.1S delivers 5.1 sound for a home cinema at a cost of $440. The Airhome5 wired hub has a $699 price tag.

At present, Airhome is engineered and certified for the North American market alone and not available to UK customers. But the company has confirmed it is "working on certificiations for additional global markets".
