Audio System for Apt?
A word of warning - I am completely tech ignorant, but hopeful one of you enlightened ones might be able to guide me in simple language...
I'd like to install an audio system into our new, small duplex NYC apartment that we will be gut renovating. I'd like to have the speakers installed in the walls/ceiling. I like the idea of wireless and ipod app control. I'd like to have sound downstairs (the bedroom), and sound upstairs, placed around the open living room/kitchen/dining area. (each floor is open besides for closets and bathroom and about 400 sqf), and maybe in the upstairs or downstairs bathroom.
I'd like to be able to turn the music on or off, speaker by speaker.
I'd like the sound quality to be decent, but it doesn't have to be extreme, if that affects price.
If such a thing exists, I'd love to also be able to pull sound in - ie to have the sound system work as an intercom or baby monitor.
What are some options I should be considering?
What should I expect such a system to cost?
Any ideas or feedback would be greatly appreciated!!
Thank you so much!!!
