what is your budget? a 3 zone capable receiver ( denon 4400/4500, pioneer 703) will run you ~700 - 1500 (depending on new or refurb) there are many other systems/solutions.I just started renting a home that has whole house wiring, terminating in my living room. There are speakers in the living room front L/R, back LR, Spare room, L/R and then L/R outdoor speakers
I would ideally like to play separate sources to the 3 areas, with the outdoor one being wireless so we can control the music to the outside from outside.
Im very much clueless as to how to accomplish this.. I have a spotify subscription and am not opposed to using wireless bluetooth transceivers or whatever is necessary I am just unsure of what equipment I would need to accomplish what I am wanting.
Summary - whole house wiring, living room, spare room, outdoor speakers. Want to play seperate sources to all 3 areas, outdoor speakers would like to be wireless.
Thank you in advance for forgiving my ignorance and I look forward to your suggestions.
you could get by with as little as ~100 - 150 / zone (dayton audio from parts express) or Sonos amps ( 600/zone)
overall, I suggest you consider a music of wifi soltion ( Sonos, HEOS, musicast, playfi, etc) on top of some cost effective amplification.
that is if music is your only application.
