Recommendations for What Wires to Run

I am building an outdoor space that at least currently won't have a theater element, but I would be interested in taking the opportunity when running a bunch of other wires to be set as possible for future applications of automation, data, and home theater.

- I will have home run wiring for several lighting loads (many dimmable) and all controlled by Lutron's RadioRA2.
- I have a SnapAV 4 speaker satellite system likely running at 70V (but maybe will run conventionally)
- I also have a SnapAV direct burial sub with both kinds of speakers run from a Crown CDi1000 and Sonos initially.

To be set for potential future applications, should I run CAT6, HDMI, analog line level, a ton more CAT6 all over the place? Thanks!

I worked for a company that installed Control 4 and, almost every house we ran all of what you said even though they didn't ask for it.
We always seemed to have gone back later on to use them. I'd say run them all!
Better safe than sorry!

Good Luck
