Remote Control Speaker Selector
Does such a thing exist? I wired speakers and Cat5 into every room of my house with the plans of buying a multizone receiver w/IR repeater system to receive IR signals from remotes in each individual room and control the audio components where all the wires are ran to in a closet. I have decided (due to the cost of the multizone receivers and being over budget for the house) that I don't want to make the investment in the multizone receiver at this time, but would still like to be able to control the volume from each individual room. I cannot simply hook up a volume control (the one with a knob) in each room because the speaker wire is not ran for that setup, so I'm thinking that if I hooked up a remote control speaker selector to an IR repeater system, I should be all set.
If this idea does not work, I will simply buy a standard speaker selector/volume control and control everything manually from the closet where the components are, but this is not an ideal situation.
Thanks for any help.
