Hello, i'm looking to setup a multi-room audio system utilizing Airplay and 2 airport express(s). I'll use my iphone and ipad for control. The two areas are my master bathroom and backyard. i already have the speakers, just need the amp.

Is there a 4 ch amp that has 4 independant always on or auto sensing inputs? I could buy 2 of those dayton T amps for each airport express but i'd rather a more powerful all in one solution.

basically i want this but dont need all those inputs and dont want to pay that price.

Thanks for any advice

Why do you need four inputs? Just two airport express units or is there more?

A simple Audiosource AMP-100 for each zone would be the cheapest solution... Just dedicate an airport for each zone.

I was thinking about expanding later on... Garage, upstairs Den etc.

I was looking at that amp and thats probably what i'll end up doing but i was hoping for 1 amp for the entire operation. i guess they dont make 4 zone amps like the one i posted above from HTD.

Thanks
