All of the replies were very helpful in helping me set up a whole-house system. I have 3 separate audio sources - a Klipsch gate and 2 Echo Inputs, going into a Sonamp 1230. The Klipsch is connected to the Bus Input, to use for the whole house. One echo input goes to channels 9 and 10 (kitchen), and the other goes to channels 11 and 12 (master bath). I use Spotify devices to select "First Floor" (Klipsch Gate), "Kitchen" (Echo Input 1), or "Bath" (Echo Input 2). All of the wiring goes to in-wall volume controls. I also set up two FLIC buttons - one launches a playlist in the kitchen, the other launches a playlist for the whole house.
One thing that confused me was the "AUX" dip switch setting. It's only set to on to enable paging. With it on, anything plugged into the 3rd Bus Input jack - "Aux" - overrides whatever is playing over the other Bus Input jacks, in that zone.
