When we renovated our house, we splurged and added built-in speakers to the kitchen, dining and living room. We chose Sonos (considered mid-range as far as price goes) for the whole system, and we couldn't be more pleased. I'm not sure what the built-ins model are, but we purchased an additional Sonos 5 to connect to the system and use upstairs after we lamented we didn't include our upstairs in the initial installation. Wow that speaker is impressive! It's LOUD if you need it, but listening to music through it has been a bit revelatory! We hear things that we didn't know were there- background vocals, minor notes and secondary rhythms. I'm FAR from an audiophile, but this speaker (and the whole Sonos system) has been such a worthwhile investment.
