I was looking around the web for multi-zone solutions and I came across this one. It's connecting DMX controlled amps together and is controlled by an iOS device. The company that suggests this layout is out of Spain and I could not find any U.S. type setups or devices that make it possible. I'm sure I didn't look hard enough or don't know what to search. I'm a newb and wanted some opinions on this setup. I would appreciate any. Thank you!!

Probably best if you can outline what you are trying to achieve and then folk can fire in some suggestions – there are lots of iOS Apps + Networked Control hardware options you could use with all manner of kit via RS232 and or IR.

Why not go the uber-easy route and grab some Sonos units? For each Sonos Amp, you create a new zone. Each zone can play its own music at its own level; or you can group zones together, and all zones can play the same thing (though still able to control volume for each zone independently).

I created a cheap DIY multi-zone audio system using Logitech Squeezebox server software on my HTPC and regular 2ch amps. Controllable via iOS or Android dedicated apps (free), WebOS app (paid) or just a web browser.

The best part is that if you have any amp, speakers and PC, you can test it out for free very quickly and easily.
