Wiring my House via a Receiver
I have the great chance of building my house. If I do so I would like to wire my house for sound in at least 3 areas. I figured I could save money if I did it my self using an A/V Receiver and an AMP. I am a big fan of Pioneer, so I would be toying with one of their A/V systems. So for those who have done this, what feed back do you have.
My thoughts are in the HT room Sacrifice a 9.2 set up and go with a 5.2. That would give me 4 speakers left 2 in the living room area and 2 for outdoors. In the living room, I would like to eventually have a LP player with the two speakers for Hi Fi audio. Is there any limitation as to how far a LP cable can run before it starts to lose quality?
While this project is still at the very least 1 year away would the latest Pioneer A/V receivers fit the bill? Is there something around the corner that would be worth waiting for? If if were to add an amp, I would more than likely go with something from Emotiva (Fits the budget). Would I be best served to go with one of those huge 5 channel blocks for 5.2 in the basement or a small 2 channel for the Hi Fi in the living room. If I have to play both or even all three at the same time?
As fas as speaker wires and connectors and even out door speakers, I would opt to get all of those items from mono price.
