I'm about to begin renovating my kitchen/living room area and want to install 8 speakers (4 stereo sets) in the ceiling for music only, running from a single source (CD, Tuner). I'm wondering what type of amplifier or controller I need? I have an old stereo receiver with A/B outputs that I used to run 4 speakers on, but all the new receivers and amps seem to be 5.1 or 7.1, and I don't wanty to spend a fortune on amps and controllers for what will essentially be background music. Any suggestions? Would it blow up my reciever (125 watts X 4) if I just put 2 sets of speaker wire in each output? Thanks...
