Simple question about bluetooth receiver & amps

I'm far from an expert in audio so this might be a (too) simple question for experts. Here it is:

in our house we have built-in speakers in several rooms. First idea was to buy sonos amps for multi-room capabilities. Afterwards we decided it's too expensive, definitely since we are not going to use multi-room ... we use Spotify a lot so if we can stream spotify from our smartphone in each of the rooms it's really sufficient. Our new idea is to buy a bluetooth receiver like the Audioengine B1 Bluetooth Music Receiver .... and connect the audio cables from the speakers directly to the receiver.

I was wondering: is this a correct setup? Don't you need an amplifier between the receiver and the speakers? (since it's just a receiver and not an amplifier)

PS. I have artsound speakers (dc201)

Correct. The Bluetooth receiver simply receives the streaming Bluetooth signal from your smart phone. You would connect that to an amp (eg. AudioSource AMP100VS) which would then be connected to a multi zone impedance matching selector. The speakers would then be connected to the speaker selector.

Thanks for your feedback!

Maybe something like the Maritek boom boom 460 is sufficient for me?? (sorry, can't include url as a newbie ). It's both receiver and amp. And don't really need multiroom.
