I just bought a new construction that has 6 speakers pre-wired through the house, one per room. I plan on setting up HT in the family room. I want to setup the system in a way where I can play music through the 6 in room speakers and be able to watch TV with sound coming from the HT speakers. I also want the ability to turn off one of the 6 in room speakers or turn them all on at once for music.
From the research i've done. I know I need the following
- Multizone receiver with zone 2 power.
- remote that can handle RF/IR.
What I am currently stuck on is, what kind of amplifier/speaker selector I need? Is it ok to use speaker selector such as the Niles SSVC-6? I am hesitant on using this because the in room speakers are mono and would not have the Right Left Pair for each selector.
Thanks in advance for your help.
