I'm not sure if this belongs in this forum or some other forum, so moderators please feel free to move this thread. I want to connect a second pair of speakers in another room and am looking for the best method to do this. Here are some specifics. My Integra 5.4 receiver is in the living room running a 5.1 system there. I want to run a pair of speakers in the kitchen, which is on the same level about 40 feet or so from the receiver. Here are the options that I'm aware of. 1. Use the powered zone 2 feature of the Integra. The advantage is that it's easy to set up. The disadvantages are that I can't run 5.1 in the living room if I'm running zone 2 (not a big deal), and that I'd have to walk into the living room to adjust the volume in the kitchen. 2. Use A-Bus. The advantage is greater flexibility in that volume can be controlled from the kitchen and that I could still (not 100% sure of this part) run 5.1 in the living room while running zone 2. The disadvantage is slightly more installation complexity and some extra cost. 3. Use some other (Niles?) control. I don't know much about this option, but I think it would be sort of a hybrid of the above two options. I'd run powered zone 2, but have control of volume via some miniplug connection back to the receiver. This would be in between options 1 and 2 both in terms of installation complexity and cost. What recommendations do the folks here have?
