Utter novice & help is greatly appreciated!
Newly renovated house. Looking for best option for 3 zone multi room set up.
1 & 2 Large open plan kitchen 25m2 and dining area/sunroom 35m2 - each of which will have a pair of wired in-ceiling speakers (Polk RC80i)
3. Lounge 25m2 - wired for wall mounted speakers but none selected as yet. Also contains TV with Sky Q box cabled back to central location where all physical boxes will be (will be using magic eye for remote)
Would like a Sonos amp that enables me to play music in the different zones (definitely need to split lounge from others, splitting zones 1&2 would be nice but not essential) and also to be able to play the TV through the lounge speakers without having to mess about too much. If this is complex then may invest in a sound bar - again recommendations welcomed.
Was told I needed to buy a Sonos amp for each zone - just to play same music stream (typically Apple Music or Spotify) and be able to turn it on and off - is this right? Seems strange if there isn’t something with multiple outputs I can control simply from an app? Remember my dad had a basic amp in 1980 that managed ?
Again thanks for any tips/advice on best amp to go for and any additional components I may need.
