Whole home audio system

Hi All,

I recently purchased a home that has in ceiling speakers wired to a central location in the basement. I was hoping to set up a system with several zones (thinking 7) and was hoping to control this from an app or central control. I have looked at the Sonos system as an option but having to link 7 connect amps seems like a bit much. What other options would be available and would any of you have any recommendations?

Seven because it has 7 speakers or...

7 because of 7 rooms? 7 amp seem like much...that depends on what kind of amplifiers.

Seven Zones

The home is wired with in ceiling speakers throughout and will need 7 zones. My understanding is that you require a separate connect amp for each zone. I was hoping there was another alternative.

Yes. See the prior discussions

Use the search term 'whole home audio' (etc.)

I would recommend you look into Russound whole home audio equipment. Great stuff that will help you avoid some of the nonsense of Sonos.
