Hi, i'm installing a WHA system where the previous owner had run, from the home theater location, 16/4 to volume control locations, then 16/2 to the speakers.
I don't want to spend too much money, so i'm looking at hooking up my receiver "b" speaker outputs to an Aton DLA6 router with the rf remote, and maybe getting an Apple Airport Express for streaming.
My only problem is that I would like some volume control in each zone, since there are already mudrings cut out for it, and i don't want to leave blank covers over them if i can avoid it. Plus, a bit of local control would be nice anyways.
So i guess my question is, is there a certain type of volume knob i need to use since the DLA6 already has impedance matching, or are regular impedance matching knobs or sliders in series with the Aton OK? I might be able to get cat5 to a couple locations to use the Aton controllers, but not everywhere.
Also, i realise that if im using volume knobs i could just us a hub with impedance matching volume controls, but i like the extra features of the DLA6, like IR control with RF so i can control it from the patio, and the scene button as well.
If anyone can think of a better solution too, that would be more than welcome.
Thanks in advance for any help.
