I'm very interested in the App, but I will worry about that down the road after I hook everything up.
I sure wish there were more how-to video’s on Youtube. Scottphillips88 had me by his display video, but some how-to video’s would be very helpful.
I will make some more videos about this Monoprice 6 Zone amp. I cant post links here yet so just go to google and search bubbas reviews 6 zone amp. Watch the short one first.
Subscribe because I will make more about the tricks I am doing with the my Monoprice 6 zone amp and Smartthings.
"I would love to put inputs in the bedroom so you can hook each TV in each room to their speakers in the ceiling." - I say do it! Monoprice has 100 ft RCA Cables on the cheap. I have 100 foot RCA on a few different inputs and they work great and sound great. For the best audio quality remember you only get one digital input per amp... honestly I cant relay tel much of a difference on a normal daily basis.
I hooked up my computer to the digital Audio input and use my windows 10 machine (that I work on everyday) as a hub everything. So spottily, Alexa's audio are all running through the digital out on my computer. 905 of the time I use this one audio source (but this is because I watch more Youtube on my computer than actual TV.
Aka run audio to your main computer as you may be using it as a smarthome hub in the future.
Also I used this Access Series 18AWG CL3 Rated 4-Conductor Speaker Wire, 1000ft. This gives you a left and a right. I have 100 ft runs with zero issues. Just don't don't run it right next to electrical wires. When I have to cross an electrical wire I just cross them like an "X". Meaning dont freak out if it touches a few just don't touch each-other more than needed. Good day to buy
I have one room I have 4 Caliber In Ceiling Speakers 8 Inch Fiber 2-Way hooked up to one Zone. I did not bridge this zone just hooked up 2 lefts and 2 rights... Been running it strong for about a year and no problems yet. (If someone smarter than me has any better ((simple))advice for this please let me know.)) I do not have the patience to try and understand ohms and crap... I wish someone would just say "hook the firs speakes black to the amp and the second speakers black to the 1st speakers black"" something simple like this.
Last thing watch for it on sale like today they have 20%off and the 6 zone amp is as cheap as I have seen it ((Under $500 shipped))
