in-wall speaker and associated stereo advice please
When we built our house, we didn't really think through the audio distribution, but we did ask the electrician to run lots of wire! Our situation turned to be probably less than ideal, but I am sure we can figure out how to make it work. The electrician ended up running speaker wire to several locations in three rooms. These wires go from places on the wall (near the ceiling), where in-wall speakers are supposed to go to a central location where we can hook all the wires into a stereo. As is probably obvious, we are not huge audiophiles, but we would like to be able to listen to music (no tv so home theater is irrelevant to us). So we need to find some reasonably-priced speakers to install (and do we want the rectangular or the round kind)? There will be 6 speakers in one room and two in each of the other two rooms. And then, we need to figure out what to hook the speakers to - we want to listen to the radio, cds, and my mp3s. It would be great if we could also add a set of wireless speakers in the kitchen hooked up to the same system. Since our budget is limited, bringing in a pro seems out of the question. Any advice at all would be truly appreciated.
