Please Help with Components for Sound System!
Can you please help me create a sound system? Well, I guess I need a TV and DVD player too.
I moved into a house a few years ago that has a bundle of wires that I hide with a bookshelf that holds my old-fashioned 17" inch television. I do not have a DVD player, and I'd like to get one along with a new television. I have enough room on the bookcase for a television that is 38" wide.
Since the house is wired for sound, I wonder what kind of television I should get. If I get a Smart TV will that help me set up the sound system? Or are Smart TV's too complicated to use?
This is what I have:
11 electrical wires in a bundle coming out of the wall
2 speakers in the living room
2 on the porch
2 in the dining room
2 in each of the 2 bedrooms.
All these rooms have a knob volume control except the living room.
Someone suggested that the living room speakers are supposed to connect to the TV. But obviously, not the ancient TV that I have now.
The only music I have is in my itunes account. Is there a way to control the sound system with my iphone?
The project seemed so daunting to me when I first moved in, but I hope technology has advanced enough that I might be capable of doing this myself.
What components will I need, and how hard is this to do?
I'd sure appreciate any help or insight anyone might have!!
Thank you so much!!
