Setup Onkyo 5600 7.1 Home Audio System in a box Two Speakers with copper wire ran from the kitchen to living room Two Speakers with copper wires ran from the rec room One "two channel" speaker ( Not sure what that means ) in the master bathroom same copper wire run Ideally, I would like to be able from my iphone/ipad turn off/on speakers ( not necessarily change sources ) to any of the five speakers and my surround sound system. The Onkyo 5600 doesn't support digital out to zone 2 I have all sources via hdmi running into the Onkyo and then use hdmi out to go to the tv The scenario I would like to solve most importantly is to be able to play music from either iphone/ipad/apple tv to both 7.1 speakers and speakers in kitchen at the same time. I was thinking using the HDMI out on the onkyo to go another device that could then send output to either the TV ( obv video + audio ) + or kitchen,master bath, or rec room speaks ( obv just audio ). This immediately made me think of Sonos, but I couldn't tell from their website what solution would work for me. Any assistance for this obviously Home Audio newb would be much appreciated -Brian
LaryTheCorndog posted a topic in System planning & Beginner Home AudioHi, I'm a noob when it comes to home audio, and I was hoping to get some advice for looking into a decent setup for my house. I have a rather larger living room with a high ceiling, and I host a lot of parties and like to watch movies. I was thinking about getting a 2.1 system, preferably with floorstanding speakers, in the $500 range (Flexible if you can convince me that $500 won't buy me anything close) starting completely from scratch (unless you count an ancient pair of Harman Kardon computer speakers). I am getting into DJing quite a bit, and I plan on getting a Gemini CDMP7000, which has a built in analog mixer, soon, and I plan on using that a lot with the speakers for parties and such. I'd love some suggestions for what to get and where to look! I've done some Amazon browsing, but I wanted some advice before I decided to buy anything. I really want to fill up the place with really loud music for parties, but I don't want it to sound like crap if I can avoid it! Thanks for any advice at all! -Lary
