Would love to get some help/advice. Just moved into a new house with pre-existing wired speakers.
1) 5 in-ceiling speakers in family room (part of home theater set-up)
2) 2 in-ceiling speakers in kitchen (adjacent/open to family room)
3) 4 outdoor speakers
All speaker wires terminate in one central location. I don't know the specs of the various speakers, but I assume the in-ceiling speakers won't require much power.
I would like to purchase an AVR and Sonos Connect. I do not need to play each area independently. All I need is to be able to "turn off" different sections (e.g. watch a movie using #1, but not have #2 or #3 on, or have #1 and #2 playing the same music with #3 off, or have all 3 playing the same music at the same time). Independent volume control would be great since turning up outdoor music might be too loud indoors.
Any suggestions on the type of receiver to properly integrate Sonos Connect across all 11 speakers. I currently own a Sonos Play 3 which I think will have to be excluded from the set-up given its specs.
Many thanks in advance.
