We are building a new home and will have master bath inceiling speakers to be installed that terminate wiring to a volume control in the master bath with final termination point in the master bedroom.
My old set up was: Logitech Squeezebox Touch --> Dayton DTA 1 mini AMP (15 Watts Per Channel) to 2 book shelf speakers under the bed (worked perfectly).
My new set up needs: Logitech Sqbx Touch to ----> ??? split somehow ??? ---> #1. bookshelf speaker pair (as above) + 2. volume control (yet to be purchased) to in ceiling speakers.
Obviously, my 15 WPC DTA-1 is not up to the task of driving 4 speakers.
I need something small and cheap where the question marks are that can be always on. The DTA-1 was set at mid volume under the bed, and I controlled volume with the Sqx Touch.
We will have the same music playing in both rooms at the same time, but with volume control (yet to purchase) in the bath, I can turn off the master bath.
I need small & cute (Wife accceptance factor) if I can't hide it under the bed.
The squeeze box touch has all it's outputs live at the same time (from my research)
(Stereo analog (RCA), digital optical, and digital coax output) and I could just get another similar class T amp, but I can't find one that uses digital inputs. I have used a RCA to miniplug adapter for the connection between the Touch and DTA-1.
So what goes in the ??? . Do I split at the Sqzbox using two outputs? , or do I split at the amp?
Any advice would be helpful.
