Hi! Im building a setup in my parents new house with 8 different zones connected through connect amps. Have some questions hope somene could give me advice:
1) Starting from the facts that 1) CDs are outdated, that everything is in Spotify (or others) and 2) Theres Tune In Radio with the sonos app, my parents still want to be able to play CDs and to hear live FM (and AM ideally) radio with no delays (Tune IN radio adds some seconds or minute).
All the setup its going to be centralized in a HUB, so I think I could add a CD/RADIO Tunner connected through the line in to one of the Connect Amps to be able to fulfill their requierements, but is there any good one you can recomend they can still play7pause/next/search frquency remoteley without needing to go to the hub (instead for introducing a CD in the player). I was thinking some that has an app to control through IOS or Android through the home WIFI network.
2) Any advice for the In-cealing speakers? I need some mono and some stereo (no preference between 6" or 8")
3) They want a 7.1 Home Theater setup in the family room, I know that currently with SONOS is not possible, so I was thinking in buying any other brand and link it to the Sonos network through a Connect. Is that possible? also, any recomendation for a 7. 1 setup?
Regarding budget, offcourse is not unlimited (I would think the opposite: limited), but they just want good quality at a fair price. Something to have into consideration: They are no audiophiles or experts, just normal homeowners that want to have nice family reunions / parties and a good experience watching netflix or blueray movies.
Thanks in advance for thanking the time to think this through!
