    I'm planning my first HTS. As it's my first experience with home theater I will progress slowly and limit my budget. My primary concern is figuring out how to drive additional sets of stereo speakers located in other rooms. Can I use an AV Receiver through a speaker selector switch to direct CD or radio music to other rooms in my house? If yes, must I have a dedicated set of stereo speakers in the room that contains my surround sound speakers? I realize that I can buy a more robust receiver that provides multiple zones, but I'm not interested in remote amplifiers, and I don't think we'll need to watch DVD's and listen to CD's at the same time. Any input appreciated.

    Yes, many receivers have capabilities for playing remote speakers with separate sources. Be sure and check the receiver’s features before you buy.
