multi room audio solution

mlbisonMay 3, 2009

I am in the middle of a complete kitchen remodel. I need advise on installing a multi room audio system. The system will include 3 zones: Kitchen area(2 in-ceiling speakers) , adjacent living room(again two in-ceiling speakers) and outside patio(two speakers). I would like to control the outdoor patio with an on-wall volume control knob, the other 2 zones can be controlled by simple remote control.

This is for purely music/audio. This will not be tied into a home theatre system.

What is the most economical/easiest answer? Receiver with multi-zone capabilities? Do I need amplification?

How about hiding a subwoofer behind the sheetrock?

Have you tried the AVG forum? I have not been there for a long time, and many of their setups are way over my head, but they've been helpful to me in the past.

PS: Sounds like you are on a budget, but even so, you may want to consider the whole house systems they now make where you store everything in a computer-like device as MP3 files and stream them through the house. You can kick the tires at your local home audio store (if any are still in business.)
