I could really use some help... Ive spent hours looking for a solution and I am at a loss...
My sister is disabled (mentally impaired) and she is moving into a her own apparment and I want to offer her a home cinema system with a little twist, because she could never afford it herself.
What I would like to offer her is a system through which she can have 5.1 surround in the living room and stereo in the kitchen (speakers and wirering already in place in the kitchen). However, as she gets confused very easily, it has to be a very simple system. What I am looking for is an HTIB system with blu ray, radio etc. which will allow her to hear the same thing in the kitchen as in the living room (so no need for multiple source support), however, it must be possible to turn off the speakers in the kitchen.
The system has to be very very very userfriendly/simple as I live 1100Km (700 miles) away and cant just drop by if she gets confused or presses the wrong button.
The full requirements would be (preferably an all-in-one system):
- 5.1 in one room
- Stereo in a second room
- Stereo speaker must be able to be turned off
- Blu ray / DVD / CD Player
- Speakers must be small and wall-mountable
- iPod dock would be nice but not a must
I have a budget of about 2000 (a couple of hundred more is do-able if really needed), but the budget also includes a 42" TV (I was thinking a pani- what do you think?), so the budget for the system would probably be about half the total budget.
If you do not know of a system that meets the requirements, but have an idea for a (very very) simple setup that could work, please feel free to post it.
Also, we live in Europe, so solutions the solutions need to be available in Europe.
My sisters life is music a movies, so I would really appreciate any advice you can give and I am sure she will too.
