Despite being a complete audio dunce, I'm interested in a DIY challenge of setting up speakers in 3 or 4 rooms in my house. My ultimate goal is to be able to listen to TV, iPod, radio without being limited to sitting in the LR.
I recently purchased an Onkyo TX-SR607 receiver, which has 'zone 2' speaker capability. I was planning to buy 3 or 4 pairs of in-ceiling speakers (Polk RC) to install into the kitchen, DR, BR, etc.
? Can I simply purchase a speaker selector (Sima) and run speaker wire from the zone 2 outputs?
? All components are wired via HDMI but I've read that this Onkyo zone 2 cannot use a digital signal, is that true, and how do I overcome that?
? Do I need any kind of power amp?
? is there a better but still relatively affordable/simple way to do this?
Any advice is much appreciated.
