Between those two, NuVo. Also look at Sonos and Russound. The reason being that HTD doesn't have any sources. So you'll need to connect a Sonos Connect, or Airplay or some other device so that you can stream music. The others come with built in sources, thus creating a cleaner interface.
My local RUssound dealer quoted me for a CAA66 system with 6 keypads, The LCD version is $1699 and the non LCD keypad version is $1399. What do you think about this price?
I checked Russound website, it seems that their systems don't have online streaming feature. And I have to buy a digital media streamer. Or add a Sonos as the source?
Here is my current situation. Hope you guys can suggest a system that can fit my needs:
I have following zones:
1. Kitchen, living room.
2 pairs of in-ceiling speakers, one keypad location (2-gang).
2. kid's playing room
1 in-ceiling DVC speaker, one keypad location (1-gang).
(I may not install it yet at this point.)
3. Master bedroom
1 pair of in-ceiling speakers. one keypad location (2-gang).
4. Master bathroom
1 in-ceiling DVC speaker. one keypad location (1-gang)
5. Outdoor area
2 pairs of outdoor speakers in the backyard. One keypad location (1-gang)
6. in the future, I may install a pair of speakers in my old bedroom (soon-to-be my kid's bedroom)
I do like to have online music streaming features. My source will be:
Smart phones, or tablets.
Cable TV (Mainly will be for the local FM radio)
Maybe a Blue-ray player in the future. (Not in the current plan)
If I have to, I can change all 1-gang brackets to 2-gangs. But I dont think the mix of 1 and 2-gang fit my needs better and will keep the cost down.
