Not sure where to put this post so sorry if its not the best forum for it. Hi, I am trying to figure out how to route and control audio throughout my house that I am currently renovating. I have just plastered the walls and ceilings but before doing so I ran speaker cables from the hi-fi location in the living room to the ceiling of every other room in the house. The intention is to have speakers recessed into the ceiling in the kitchen and the bedrooms. I would like to be able to listen to music from the living room hi-fi in the kitchen and bedrooms: this would require the ability to specify which speakers the audio should be routed to (dont want speakers in all rooms playing at once) and also the ability to remotely control the living room hi-fi from each of the other rooms. Any advice on how to best do this would be much appreciated. I live in Ireland and am travelling to the US for a week next week and found this website I could use which seems to have relevant gear at decent prices: http://www.jr.com In particular the Niles stuff looks relevant: http://www.jr.com/JRSectionView.process?N=401474&BrandStore=t The NILES AUDIO MSU480 Multi-room IR Wireless Repeater System Hub looks like it would be useful for allowing multiple remote controls in the other rooms but what are the one infrared sensor for each of your secondary listening rooms it mentions would the NILES AUDIO MF1VF Infrared MicroFlasher be the right thing (as in have the hub attached to the hi-fi and then have a flasher in each secondary room?). The NILES AUDIO SS-6 Six-Pair Speaker Selector looks like it could be used for indicating which room the audio should be routed to (e.g. only speakers in bedroom A should receive the audio at this time) is this correct? I dont see how I could control this device remotely though is there anyway I could pick up a remote in the kitchen and tell this device to route audio to the kitchen? The alternative would mean I would have to walk into living room to press the button to route it to the kitchen, but from then on I could control the tracks, stations, volume in the kitchen using the hi-fi remote with the above remote repaters not ideal but ok. Any advice on this would be much appreciated as Im fairly new to this and am a bit overwhelmed by all the options. Also do the prices on this site look good enough to merit the hassle of lugging them home or good I get similar deals in the UK?
