Less than 200 years ago, and for thousands of years before that, the only way human beings enjoyed music was live! Musicians played pianos, violins, bass, and drums as singers serenaded their fortunate audience(s). No recorded music existed. Homeowners entertained their guests, their families, and themselves with live music during lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, evening performances, and even romantically. Unfortunately, today, most homes in the world use cheap plastic poor sounding speakers for their "background audio" systems. Fortunately, the best homes in the world believe in creating CAT, CAT ELITE, and CAT MBX "distributed audio" systems that rival the sound quality of live music!
