If you are fortunate enough to have a separate room in the home that is a dedicated space for a home office, you may consider that there are some benefits to having an audio system and video system in that room. This doesn’t have to be complicated and can be as inexpensive as you want it to be with the choice of what type of quality you decide to go with.
In some cases, you can leverage stand-alone devices that can not only connect to your computer via the network, but many will connect directly to the internet to stream music or video. As an example, let’s say you use a wireless video transmitter to get the video from one area of the home into your home office. In this case, you may find that the best way to stream this video is through a separate monitor that can double as a second monitor for your computer. Additional screen real estate is a great thing when you have a lot of data that you need to reference. When you aren’t busy at work, but have a need to keep one of the screen connected to your pc, you can switch the second screen to your video system.
Another option may be to get a video card that has a cable in option. This works great, but can tax the system if you don’t have a powerful enough CPU or enough available memory to handle video.
Whether you dedicate a separate audio system to your listening of tunes or whether you simplify this down to a headset is based on personal preference. There are some advantages to a headset including the ability to block things out to stay focused. Some headphones also double as both gaming headphones, microphones, and devices that can be used to connect to skype or other online services where voice is used. Wireless surround sound with a wireless headphone set may also be worth looking into.
