    Entire home - multi room installation

    My home:
    Main level:Living Room, Family Room, Kitchen
    Upper Level: 4 BRs
    Basement, finished with those removable ceiling tiles (?)

    My Current setup:
    In my family room, Harman Kardon CP-35 HTiB with 7.1 capability. Only 5.1utilized. Very satisfactory HTiB. Receiver is multi room, not HDMI. A dual room Dish network receiver that controls TV in family room and single TV in my Bedroom.

    My ultimate goal:
    • Have speaker in ceilings in all BRs, Family Room Living Room and Kitchen (Zones?)
    • Have multiple source of music (CDs, My PC, Radio, iPod etc)
    • Ability to control master sound from one Source(primary receiver?)
    • Ability to override sound in individual zone/room?
    • Ability to play music from different source in different room (zone?)
    • A standalone Home Theater in Basement, Projector or TV.

    • What would it take? I am not a tech person-but just a dude with some goals.
    • Can I do it on my own?
    • Where do I start? How do I start?

    is this new construction, renovation, addition being added?
    if none of the above, take a look at Sonos, you maybe able to handle that system on your own but If you want more capabilities from the system you should start by:
    Define your budget, this will save alot of time by limiting the systems that only meet your requirements
    determine which rooms( zones) require full control, critical listening, or can some of them be combined, deleted
    How do you want to control system, keypads, remotes, PC, iPhone, or a mix of these. Keep in mind that "ease of operation" is key for your enjoyment of any system but that also have a higher cost factor as well
    There's alot more that can be involved with what you want to do but I think your best course of action is to seek out guidance from local custom integrators in your area

    Question Multi source multi room sound

    Hey people, looking for a receiver , amp ( what is it i'm looking for ? )
    I want to listen to two or three diff sources from a central location.
    I have 8 ohm pairs of speakers with impedance matching volume controls in 3 rooms.
    I would like to be able to listen to
    ex. radio in 1 room
    Ipod in 2nd room
    cd in third room

    All at the same time
    Is this possible what kind of unit can do this
    All speaker wiring goes to central location and branches out to th 3 rooms separately
