I'm looking at receivers to do mulitple zones. I have a living room to setup surround sound in plus i'd like to add 1 ceilling speaker in the dining room, probably 2 in the living room and another one for ourdoors in the backyard. I'm debating adding to the bed rooms as well. I would like to be able to operate each zone independently at times to play different sources ( Pandora, Sirius, TV, etc ). I'm having a complete renovation done and in the next week or 2 all the walls will be completely open so it's the perfect time to run all the wiring.
any advise on the proper receiver and/or speaker's or other equipment would be much appreciated.
