We r adding a sunroom with three level extension. Would like to add audio in these three levels. I have a spare Onkyo 608, and would be interested in using it if possible.

Otherwise, our budget is tight so any recommendations on the multi-zone audio distribution solution would be appreciated.

In the basement, we will have a game room, level 1 would be sunroom, and level-2 is bedroom extension. Planning to add 2 in-ceiling speakers at 2 levels.

Any advice on wiring that need to be done for later date addition of the system is also appreciated.

Same advice as always. Home run speaker wire to a central location where the gear can live. Loop speaker wire through a volume control / keypad location in each zone. Home-run a cat5e/cat6 to each keyapd as well. That will set you up to use any system available.
