    We just received a 50k quote for a Savant system for new home. Is wiring for audio becoming obsolete? Is the AirPlay and Apple TV the way to go instead of wiring a home audio system throughout a new home build?

    You can have a Smart TV and an application that can stream any media you want from the home servers.
    If to talk about music, them MyAudioStream is a good solution for that.

    Wiring is always going to be better than not wired. I have my Apple TVs connected via Ethernet rather than wifi. And my speakers are wired as well including the surround sound.

    No, AV wiring is not obsolete. Under certain circumstance, wiring is the preferred method.

    There are several factors to consider.

    AirPlay will depend on the speed of the wireless router, if it is an old or slow router, then streaming audio via AirPlay will cause stuttering, lag, or simply not work.

    Personally, I have found Bluetooth to be an easier wireless audio solution. It doesn't lag and is universal between most modern mobile devices. The problem with wireless streaming is that the sound quality won't be as good as AV wired.

    I guess it all boils down to a balance between convenience and quality.
