Minimalist Music & Movie System

We all want to listen to music and watch movies, but we don’t want the technology to get in our way. Thus for LifeEdited 2, we deployed a very capable but very simple system.

Our needs:

  • Play music from Spotify
  • Play movies from Netflix & iTunes
  • Allow guests to use the system without reading a manual
  • Energy efficiency in all of the above e.g. music can play without the TV being on

What we used:

What we like:

  • Music sounds great!
  • Total cost is less than $1,000
  • No need for a big A/V receiver or subwoofer
  • To control it, all you need is the tiny Apple TV remote and a phone
  • Guests have successfully used it

Alternatives:

  • Rather than an Apple-centric system use a Google Cast system, or an Amazon-centric system, or a Sonos system, or a Roku system
  • Projectors can also be great for small apartments — less wall space taken up.

This post is one in a series that describes our LifeEdited 2 showcase apartment. LifeEdited 2 embodies our green, space efficient, and minimalist principles. We view LifeEdited 2 as a lab for experiencing things that are consistent with these principles. None of the products above were given to us.
