I have the same question. I am building a home and have a meeting with the electrical team next week. I am not wanting to put speakers in the kitchen, living room, patio, master bathroom right away but would like to wire the home correctly in anticipation of wanting this down the road. I have a buddy at work that has his set up as you mentioned, he controls the house with his tablet and everything is connected to one receiver in his living room. The guy from work doesn't know how it was set up though since he had it professionally done. For me the only real question is what to wire with. I was given a suggestion of using "multimedia" wiring to keep my options open in the future.
