Video- Because the Elan Z system is modular, you can buy just the preamps and keypads and use your amps and speakers.
The elan Preamps can be controlled with IR sensors, Keypads, touchscreens, or just plain volume controls. This is just one choice of many though. Here is a 6 zone, 6 source setup.
2 Z630 preamps
1 Via touch panel
1 Pvia wall plate
6 Z100 keypads
Total would be about $5K not including labor or wiring. So the cost per zone is close. Keep in mind this not the area to discuss prices, but I don't mind letting people know general budgets and I hope others add their input too.
You might have 2k-3K in Structured wiring for Video and Audio distribution.
The Elan Via touchscreen can display video and/or control the television the rooms-very handy.
If you don't need a built-in color touchscreen with video, but would like a touchscreen remote to work your products, check out the Pronto II.
Look for a flexible A/V company in your area that will design a system including the wiring layout. You will probably pay a retainer fee for this, then after the wires you installed are in, the company can certify the connections and provide you with programming. IF you are a Technical sort of person, the programmer kit and some training can be made available to you. I'm really guessing here, but parts and education may be about $1k-$1.5K.
