I've been buzzing around for a while and learning alot but now I have a question. And hello to all as well ...I just moved into a home that has 5 in wall speakercraft speakers and would like to get them going in a price concious fashion. I would like to add 2 bose speakers for the outside as well making the total 7. That being said, I don't need the ability to control them individually and would like them all to play at the same volume levels, don't think i need "zones". Best buy was in here evaluating my set up and is trying to rip me off on an install, 2 grand and they say I need a 2channel receiver and will only be able to use 2 speakers at once and will have to choose the room i want the music in and can't power them all. I'm sure there is another alternative. Being this will only be powering speakers for music, is there not an economical solution here to power them all at once? Thanks for any help....OH, and I'm excited, based off of what everyone said here I think I'm going with a samsung 42 plasma (720p), pioneer elite receiver and Triad inwalls for the Home theater.
