This is what I want in heaven…for words to become notes, and conversations to be symphonies. – Tina Turner
There is ALWAYS music at the mansion.
Not only does it keep the mood here light, but as a writer it keeps me inspired.
Whether I’m lying in bed, trying my hardest to hoist myself onto my feet in the morning, pretending to make dinner in the kitchen (while I make the call for take-out), or kicking back on the sofa with Mr. S & Clem at the end of the day, the mansion is filled with song. Luckily, we love the same artists, and rather than tuning out the world with our earbuds in, we choose to share the sounds.
Most of the music that we listen to is either stored on our phones, or within one of our favorite Pandora stations. So…how do we enjoy our music?
Denon Heos 5
We found this portable speaker listed at Best Buy. Why Denon? We’re going back YEARS here, but in the OLDEN DAYS of turntables and tuners, we were a Denon family. You see, even THEN we knew which components allowed us to enjoy the finest in sound, and it made sense that they STILL offer the finest in sound quality, just like they did back in the 70’s. One listen and Mr. S and I were HOOKED ON A FEELING that Denon would once again fill our home with music.
With music, you don’t often have to translate it. It just affects you, and you don’t know why. – David Byrne
I’m no techno-wizard
If it involves anything more than plugging something in and turning it to the “ON” position, you’ve lost me. So the easy 4-step setup was right up my alley.
It was as simple as 1-2-3-4
1. Take the Heos 5 out of the box
2. Connect the power cord from the Heos 5 to your socket & PLUG IT IN.
3. Download & Launch the Heos App on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device
4. Click on “music” – “settings” – then ADD your device and you’re ready to listen.
“Music is the strongest form of magic.” ― Marilyn Manson
