I did find a couple of older threads addressing this, but wanted to get some feedback...
While the keypads of the Grand Concerto are pretty slick, is there are big enough difference between the two systems to justify the large difference in price? On Ebay, I can pick up a Concerto for $800-$900, while the Grand Concerto goes for $2k and up.
I'm looking for basic whole-house audio for 6-7 zones - at some point tying in some sort of video distribution (ala Audio Authority Avatrix or something similar). At this point, I don't have any plans for any type of serious home automation. If I do go down that route, it'd likely be some kind of home-brew DIY solution vs. a CI solution.
I'm currently building a new place and will be doing the low-voltage prewire myself in a few weeks time.
