I am contemplating a Sonos system in my home. Probably (4) ZP100's and (2) Controllers. I have a question about the ZP100.
My home AV system is powered by a Microsoft Media Center which feeds my NAD receiver (a Sonos MCE plugin would be brilliant) and I'm thinking about how to play my AV system in conjunction with the Sonos.
If I am using my Media Center as the source I believe I can ouput sound from my reciever into the Sonos and then propogate that over all Sonos powered zones.
If I am using the Sonos as the source and want to also play it on my home stereo I am wondering if I can use the line outs from a ZP100 (fixed volume, not variable) and simultaneously use that same ZP100's powered outputs to drive a pair of speakers.
Of course this would save me from having to buy an additional ZP80 to feed my AV system a Sonos source.
Or are there other alternatives that I'm not considering.
Thanks for any answers and help you can provide.
