I'm getting rid of my 5.1 Pioneer Home Theatre Receiver system mainly because i can't setup the speakers for surround sound anyway and i mainly use the speakers watching 2.1 audio content or just for music. 5 speakers + a sub is too much stuff anyway, looks messy.
What i want to do is have speakers in my lounge for music/tv and install two outdoor speakers for the deck. I want both these sets of speakers hooked into the same device and want to be able to control them - ie, have both sets playing or just one or the other.
How would i best go about this?
Do you recommend i install a sound bar or a 2.1 stereo in the lounge? What sort of hardware would i need to achieve my goal of having two lots of speakers?
I really dont know much about all this audio stuff so want to make sure i do it right before i go buy stuff.
