First post here. Read numerous other whole house audio threads on here. You guys are very knowledgeable and looking forward to some input on my future set-up. My technical level is low so bare with me.
Have a new construction home being built in June. Will have 7 maybe 8 zones of audio. Going to go with the Sonos system components.
Here's the rooms that will have two in-ceiling speakers:
1) Master Bath
2) Master Bedroom (Would like to combine with the bath)
3) Guest Suite
5) Dining Room
I would like to have a Sonos Connect:Amp run the Master Bath and Master Bedroom. With a total of 4 speakers how would I do this? Need to buy separate amp and just have a Connect? Also would like to have a switch to have the speakers on only in the bath, bedroom, or both. Is this possible?
Would like to have the dining room, kitchen, deck, garage all combined since really no need to have different music playing in these zones during a party. What is a good amp to buy for this or other solution?
Should I have all system components in our main level family room or in the mechanical room in the basement?
I've seen the previous threads that say its a wash having separate amps or Sonos Connect:Amps and just do all Sonos, but I guess its hard to justify buying 8 or 7 Connect:Amps at $500 a pop. Maybe I'm wrong. Again I'm new to the home audio field and don't know whats out there and how much it costs.
Thanks again for the input.
