Hey guys, I'm a forum newbie and I hope I am posting in the right place. I just bought a new townhome in the Seattle area. It was built in 07 and came with ceiling speakers. The setup is this:


Ground floor: 1 speaker in Office

2nd Floor: 5 Speakers in Living room, 2 speakers in Kitchen

3rd Floor: 2 Speakers Bedroom A, 2 Speakers Bedroom B, 1 speaker bathroom


In each room there is a Dial that I assume changes the volume.


I have no idea what kind of speakers I have because I haven't been able to pry the covers off of the speakers. They are wedged on there pretty tight.


I would like it so that during gatherings or whatever I can play music simultaneously throughout the house and only Isolate the living room when playing games or whatever. Airplay/ bluetooth for audio to the house speakers through my nexus would be ideal as well


Im thinking I need a 5.1 reciever with a seperate 2 channel out then that goes to an 8 channel Amplifier. The reciever Should be able to power both circuits at the same time.


What do you guys think? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I walked into magnolia AV and was less than impressed with their style of business.


I can provide pictures if you want as well.

Best posted in the Hone A/V Distribution forum, but you're on the right track for a simple setup. Pull the plate off the volume control and see if you get lucky and have a cat5 control wire there slimy with the speaker wires...


A "whole house audio" system is the next step up giving the ability to listen to multiple sources in the different zones. Check HTD.com for cheap multichannel and WHA systems.


You can also use one larger amp and a speaker selector like the Aton DLA, but an HTD setup would be more flexible...
