The best option would be, to buy things from Amazon or Alibaba.com, since, Amazon does not deliver products in Bangladesh and Alibaba is a platform to purchase mostly for business owners, you have to buy them from mediator platforms. There are many groups and websites who’ll buy you the products you want from international online stores, you just have to pay a little extra to them (the mentioned prices are set considering this fee also). Another option could be bringing the devices by a relative or friend who’s living outside of our country. However, if you want to purchase from a Bangladeshi store, Sony would be a good option, available in Sony dealer stores or from online platforms of our country. Physical store options are ‘Bose’ Address: 134, New Eskaton Road, Dhaka 1000, any computer stores from BCS computer city specially Star Tech or Ryans Computer. The cost will completely depend on what devices you’re going to buy and how will you set your system up. The price that I’ve mentioned is very much relative, and for just to give an idea about the brands.
Now you’ve got everything to start planning about your house’s smart music system. Prioritize your needs and start comparing the devices of the brands that I’ve mentioned; many reviews can be observed in YouTube and blogs, comparing and guiding which particular devices are best for you.
