    Hi guys, recently found exactly what I am after with regards to multi-zone, multi-audio, home audio system.

    Can pick one up from the states for about £1400.

    Does anybody know of a similar kit but for cheaper? I don't mind saving but if I can get a cheaper alternative then I will.

    Thanks,
    Ad

    An explanation of the system you are planning and sources etc. you wish to use may help. Do you really need 6 separate zones etc? With some more information then we maybe able to suggest other alternatives. To be honest, if you really need 6 zones of amplification and be able to control them all separately then £1400 sounds like quite a good price already. Something like a Sonos system may be easier to use and setup but will probably cost a fair bit more although you could build the system up in stages by adding each zone/room as funds allow.

    Zone one - lounge, hall
    Zone two - kitchen, utility
    Zone three - garden
    Zone four - upstairs

    I think 6 would be slightly overkill but better to have more than not enough.

    I agree, it seems like a very good price. All inclusive unit without the need for separate amps. Just run Ethernet to the room controllers and speaker cable to the ceiling speakers

    How many speakers do you envisage in each zone. Often these multichannel amps require a quite narrow impedance range which can make conencting more than 2 speakers to a zone difficult.

    With that in mind, probably 2 ceiling speakers in each zone. I have a separate surround sound that I use for movies which won't be connected to this.
