Hi Everyone,

I need help picking a solution. I currently have:
2x Bose 251 outdoor speakers (Rated 10-200 watts per channel/rated 4 to 8 ohms, 100W IEC continuous power handling; rated 6 ohms)
2x JBL ND310II speakers (Nominal Impedance 8 ohms, Max Amp Power 250 watts)

I'm looking for a solution that will allow me to play on these speakers using AirPlay with the option to:
A. Play only on the JBLs
B. Play only on the Boses
C. Play the same source on both at the same time

I was thinking of buying two 2-channel amps (say Emotiva XPA-200 or something similar) and an Apple AirPort Express but wanted to see if there is a better/less expensive option here, preferably a receiver with AirPlay support and two stereo zones.

Thanks,

Drew
