I have a similar question regarding a second zone. I'm in a new-build home that has two separate AV closets, A & B, at opposite sides of the ground floor. Two rooms are sound pre-wired to wall plates in A and two (on the far side of the plan) are wired to wall plates in B. Unfortunately the contractor, while providing (4) RG6 cables between the two rooms, did not include a conduit linking them for future use.
Both rooms are linked (via the home's central switch) by gigabit ethernet.
AV closet A will serve as the primary location for equipment; my question is how I might send audio (video optional) to a second amplifier located in AV closet B for the purpose of allowing single source for whole-house audio. I'm not finding much in the way of receivers that seem to advertise the ability to send/receive audio via an ethernet link. I'd prefer to avoid added hardware like Airport, Sonos, etc, staying within the AV equipment hardware itself if possible.
Any advice greatly appreciated!
