Hello!

I recently installed 6 ceiling speakers (two more to come on the back-porch) and am currently powering them through a simple mini stereo with CD changer and aux input (connected to a computer). I can switch speakers in each room on and off via a manual speaker switch.

I would like to upgrade to have the following ability:
- control rooms separately via Android/iPhone devices and web interface
- have the choice of 2 or three audio sources, and two rooms can have different audio sources at the same time

What would be a device or solution i should start looking into? Is any of the Control4 devices able to accomplish this?

You'll find lots of info in the Home A/V Distribution forum, one up from here.

A set of Sonos Connect:Amp units, or a NuVo P3100 (plus a P200 for the outdoor zone) would be a good solution...

We use Control 4 to control our 11 zones of music. Rhaposdy and Tunein can be played in all zones. We started with one controller that controlled main living and back deck. You can start small then add on.

http://www.htd.com has some distributed audio systems with iPhone control which run under $1,000 for the entire setup.

Worth a look for sure for the average home. Always nice to have keypads if you can install them!
