    I have ceiling speakers throughout my new townhouse. What do I need to buy? A receiver? A speaker selector? What type? I'd like to play my iPod with the system as well. Who hooks up these systems once I get the equipment? Thanks!

    Well...
    More info...
    How many rooms?
    Each room have two speakers?
    Want 1 zone, or each room capable of "musical independence"?
    Do all these speakers have the same origin point?
    But your questions so far...
    1. Whatever works
    2. If you want. Or an integrated amp.
    3. Depends on your answer to number two...and additional info above.
    4. Same as three...see 2
    5. You can hook up whatever you want...you just buy the correct stuff.
    Who installs?
    You...???
    A custom audio installer (anybody not called Best Buy Magnolia)

    By the way, an example of a stereo receiver meant for this...it is 2 source/3 zone(on top of that it can split Analog AM/FM from HD AM/FM)
