My house is wired as follows:
- 5 pair of speaker wires in living room
- 8 pair of speaker wires in rest of house
- 4 cat5e cables run to rest of house (each room where pair of speaker wires runs)
All cables go to a 'hub' in the living room.
From what I have read, A-BUS systems require speaker wires to be run from the wall plates in each zone to each pair of speakers. Is it possible to run everything (speaker wires + cat5e) to an A-BUS distribution to work with my setup?
I am looking at an Onkyo TX-NR515 to power the 5 speakers in the living room, and running the zone2 out to an A-BUS distribution if this configuration works. I like the 515 as it has a spotify player implemented, and allows iphone/ipad control. I'd like to do the same (iphone/ipad control) with the rest of the speakers in the house. What do you recommend?
