The reviews on that amp are 'mixed'--how do you like it?
I have had no problems with the Amps and been running for almost a year now.
Really interested if you can you confirm that you can have the same song playing simultaeneously in every zone, AND that the gizmno app also control and sync the zones?
I can confirm you can play one song in all zones or different songs in each zone. The one thing about the Gizmo app, is as of right now, you can not link and unlink zones. The linking has to be done on main computer. In the past, I have had issues with the syncing, but today I tried it and no problems. Its not a big problem with syncing since usually you stop all the music and then press play again and it corrects itself.
To test, I started playing one streaming radio station in kitchen, then changed zones to the family room and played the same stream and no problems with syncing.
Also, once the zones are linked and you have something playing, you can use the Gizmo app to change volume per zone so the volume control are not tied while they are linked.
If this didn't answer your question, if you could give me a scenerio and what type of action you want to carry out I can tell you if it works or not.
They also have a WebGizmo where you can log in remotely but it is similar to the app in that most of the major control comes from main machine but you can select zones and select what to play.
That sounds pretty good, but you should probably add the cost of a dedicated PC to your total price.
That is possibly true. I didn't really think of that since I am using an old machine as the server.
I also forgot to mention the cost of the speakers were not included in original post but I used the Pyle PDIC60
for $35 a pair = 10 * 35 = $350
So total is $720
for 10 zones of audio which still isn't too bad.
