Home Audio Solution

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

If it doesn't support switching speakers wirelessly, then you need to find a reciever that does. You may be able to find a zoned speaker switch that switches wirelessly. But I'm sure it would cost as much as a reciever.
