    I'm installing an HT system in my family room (Paradigm Ref 60s, CC, and in-ceilings; Denon 3802; SVS or Hsu sub) as well as in-wall speakers in five other rooms of my house for a house-wide sound system.

    My installer is recommending an amp to drive the speakers in the five other rooms (specifically the Sonamp 1230, which I've priced at about $1,000). (The Denon would drive the family room HT system.)

    As a newbie, my question is what sort of amp would I need for this application. Spending $1000 on an amp for this application seems a little high considering that one can get amps for much less. Any ideas or recommendations?

    Your installer maybe recommending this amp because of past experience or he knows someone who sells them, etc. From looking at the specs the Sonamp is 12x30w so maybe you need all those channels for the other rooms?
