    Re: Multi-Room Speaker Setup

    Looks like you have a few possible problems with this setup.

    First, your AVR does not appear to have A/B speaker terminals or a Zone 2 option so I don't know how you would be able to connect the speakers. I guess you could use the front L/R speaker terminals going into an impedance matching speaker selection switch and distribute from there.

    Second, you have an odd number of in-ceiling speakers. How do you plan to get both channels out of the one speaker?

      Whole house audio is a very nice feature.....IF.....you include the neccessary control features to make it functional. There's some great products out there who's prices have really come down as to make them affordable to the masses.

      I've approached this with 3 dedicated zones using my Apple iTouch as a controller, my PC as a music database using iTunes and three SONOS Zoneplayers for the three rooms. One zoneplayer is in one room and the other two are remotely located in a closet. Each zone player has a built in amplifier and DAC for external amplification if desired. The iTouch can be had as a Touch Screen controller for $199 and i bought the Zone players at Clearance/Demo sales and Ebay. Total cost for the system was less than $700 and offers four independant zones including the PC/insertion point.
