I was struggling with how to add the Zone Player to my existing home theater and still have the automation of the Controller for the zone. As everyone knows the ZP can be connected by analog outputs, but can't turn on and control the existing preamp.
The only affordable solution I have found is to use the Niles SPK-1 speaker switcher. The solution will only work with preamps/receivers with a 12 volt or an AC plug. It costs about $100.
