Whole house sounds system newbie.
My wife and I have a new build and we will be wiring the house for sound. I would like to do it myself but have no idea how to go about it. I also want to use the iPad as the user interface with the system. I want as basic and simple a system as possible. I don't need to shake the walls or rattle the windows with gigantic speakers. I need suggestions as to what products I need to investigate. With the iPad I would like to control source and overall volume. It is not necessary to be able to listen to different sources from room to room. Since I am wiring the house should I also wire it so the computer/iPad controls overall video/TV and other house features such as exterior/interior lights? Would that require someone with a great deal of knowledge to accomplish or can anyone do it? Thanks for any helpful suggestions.
