New member here! Like the title said Im looking at recommendations for a receiver to power multiple zones (indoor & outdoor) as well as indoor and outdoor speaker recommendations.
I'm planning on having a stereo setup in my living room as well as 2 stereo speakers covering an outdoor courtyard. Most of the music will come from computers and ipods, but I would also like the ability to play CDs as well as listen to AM/FM radio.
I was considering buying a Harmon Kardon 3490 stereo receiver/amplifier based on it's high power and multiple zone outputs but would love other recommendations. Additionally I was considering the Bose 251 outdoor speakers, but once agin, I'd love other opinions. As for the indoor stereo speakers and subwoofer I truly have no idea and would love suggestions.
I'd like to keep my spending to under $1500 for two speakers and a subwoofer, but would love to get some great sound. Additionally these speakers would need to fill a rather large sound space with somewhat strange acoustics... the entire house is made of sprayed concrete, so sounds tends to travel... I'm at work now but I'll see if I can dig up a picture of the soundspace.
Anyway I can't wait for your suggestions and responses.
