    Hi,

    Currently have a SoundLeisure jukebox in my pub that plays music to 3 separate zones with a central volume control and track reject button. Additionally there is a mode to play audio from the Sky box to the same 3 zones (during football etc).

    I've been pulling my hair out trying to figure out a system that will do this, with the additional ability to continue to play music in 2 of the zones whilst the other plays audio from the Sky box.

    Am planning to get rid of jukebox totally and have Spotify running for customers....but will still need to switch audio to any one of the zones between music and tv.

    The current speakers are the cheap empty box types that typically come with pub jukeboxes. Hoping to continue to use these, though may not be possible.
    Any advice on where to start with this would be greatly appreciated. Hoping to spend on the right side of £1, 000 on new av receivers/speaker selectors etc.

    Cheers

    Have a look at the Sonos connect amp. Supports multizone, Spotify and has a line in connection for Sky input.

    Teac do a stereo multizone amp (980 I believe is the model number) but I think that is only 2 zone.

    Like the idea of Sonos, especially as it is so easy to set up and scale up if needed. Not confident the speakers we already have would be usable with it so would be a reasonable initial cost to get additional speakers or zone players from Sonos.

    Had hoped to somehow replicate the SoundLeisue jukebox set up, which is afterall just a glorified motherboard with specialist cards plugged in. Starting to look like this is harder than I imagined. Will look on eBay for reasonably priced Sonos components, though still hanker after a pc driven solution with a speaker selector....

    Thanks for your thoughts
