He's a good friend, then... :D

25' shouldn't be too much of an issue. If you're going to pull the cable, use one of the Redmere cables from Monoprice and you won't have any issue at 25'...

The NuVo system can be controlled from the mobile app (via the MPS4) - no reason to go against it because it has keypads ALSO. Both access types have their strengths and having both, IMO, is the...

So you found what you suspected to be asbestos tile, and did exactly what you're NOT supposed to do - break it up into pieces which scatters particles into the air - without any protection? :eek:

I don't believe there is any evidence to support that - lower impedance does mean "more efficient", but that does not equate to "higher quality" or "better sounding" or "cleaner sounding".

Can't vouch for the quality of that kit, but it's got everything you need if the wire is long enough.

Monoprice has a nice kit for <$20 that may be a better choice.
