Hey, I am wondering if someone can tell me the best route to take? I currently have a Yamaha HTR-5930 reciever that has an A or B speaker selector but not A + B. This is setup in my living room for use with my home theater.
I have run speaker wire outside to my patio and inside to my kitchen and I am also wanting to use it for a Single Source - Multi Zone setup between my living room, kitchen and patio. Its pretty basic but it is mainly so my wife doesnt have to blast the stereo to hear it in the other room or outside. She can set it at a good level and turn on or off the rooms she will be in.
I am wondering what the best way of setting this up would be . I was thinking of connecting my home theater up to the "B-Channel + surrounds" and then connecting a speaker switcher to the "A Channel" and connecting the switcher to the speakers in the three rooms. If I do this how would I incorporate the speakers that are already attached to the "B Channel"? Would it be safe to connect those speakers to both the "B channel" for surround use and the speaker selector for stereo use? Like I said my reciever only as A or B so would this be safe and not have the speaker get powered from both and/or create some strange loop that could cause problems? While using the speaker selector I know it will only be in stereo in my living room and that is fine.
If I need to clarify anything let me know. Also does anyone have any suggestions for low priced speaker selectors? I was looking at
