Im in the middle of renovating my house and have taken the whole lot back to brick (Mrs loves me right now, honest). We were thinking as the house is in this state, it might be a good time to pre-wire/purchase a multi room audio system, but I've been out of the AV game for a LONG time, so no idea what I'm looking at really. I have 3 rooms I want audio in; garden (outdoor rock type speakers), kitchen diner & bathroom. I'd like to run the whole thing streaming from a laptop and/or mobile device, so am looking for something fairly techy with bluetooth or wifi etc although don't mind hard wired if it means not compromising on sound quality. I've heard the Sonos connect:amp mentioned, however unless I want the same music in every room at the same time, it seems I'd need to buy 3, and at £499 a pop, they're out of budget. I'm hoping there may be a half decent chinese alternative (much in the same way there seems to be a handful of half decent alternatives to GoPro etc) or just something a little lower end. I've found Yamaha in-ceiling speakers for £100/pair which get good reviews, unless you've got any better suggestions? I was thinking just some rocky looking things for the garden, it's pretty big though (the garden, that is) so I'm guessing I'll need 4 for there.
Any help much appreciated!!!
