    Looking for ideas on what to do with this whole house system dated circa 1999 in the home I just purchased and moved into this week. It looks to me like nothing has been done with it or changed since it was first installed. There is an AV rack in a closet in the finished basement where all...

    Hi all, We moved into our current house a few years ago which previously had a whole house audio system installed that we have yet to utilize.

    Since these things can be had at a decent price this time of year, I'm trying to figure out how to put some music throughout the house on a budget. My dad's house had a speaker/intercom system for a while and it was so cool to be able to play music through the whole house. So the core of the...

    I bought a new home from a builder last year in MSP and it was extensively wired for the ELAN system. The company that did the wiring wants $35,000 to finish it up. I am not interested in putting that kind of money into the system. I want to distribute audio to a few rooms and put surround in...
