A sound system is provided. The sound system can include one or more speaker apparatuses and one or more coupling apparatuses. The sound system can include a first speaker apparatus coupled with a second- speaker apparatus by a coupling apparatus. Either the first speaker apparatus or the second speaker apparatus can be identified as a "master device" depending on how the first and second speaker apparatuses are coupled by the coupling apparatus. If one speaker apparatuses 102 is identified has been identified as a "master device" (e.g., the first speaker apparatus 102a) the remaining speaker apparatuses 102 (e.g., the second speaker apparatus 102b) can, for example, be identified as slave devices. Audio signals are communicated from the source module 108 to only a master device.
