Firstly let me thank everyone for the input in "How to wire your Home" earlier this year.
Finally progress with builders etc, but I am confused to say the least re "sound system".
Many "installers" are suggesting some form of system to drive the end product ie Zon, Russound, Control 4, etc. They maybe necessary in the future so will prewire for them.
I would appreciate some impartial input there.
I basically wonder about eventually two separate systems, one downstairs a two zone 7.1 HD 1.3a amp which will allow me with HDMI splitter to sent HDTV around, Freeview or Sky.
Zone One downstairs theatre
Zone Two is background music, whether it be CD, Phono, AM/FM radio, Internet radio. is it possible to split into several independant sound sources?
I was wondering whether the system could be based around. a " Qualifi " product or similar. Hope I have links right.
Web site details are at qualifi.com.au. The basic box is a SSWVC6
The two main links

What I am wishing to do off Zone Two is get several sources of basic sound,"basic stereo musac" around, if possible and run the whole system with I R and a Logitech Harmony remote. I will add second system "media room" upstairs sometime in future.
Maybe run Windows Media Player of computer as well. Screensaver on TVs/
Any one have suggestions inbuilt speakers? The boss downstairs does not wish to see any speaker enclosures.
Am I dreaming? Input appreciated.
