I'm planning LinuxMCE awesomeness for my new home. I'd like to setup whole home audio, but I'm not sure how to go about it.
At first I was going to run all the audio cables to the basement, hook them up to a multi-zone amp, and then hook the amp up to a MD (and a receiver to the MD, as well). But, now I'm thinking that perhaps I should run every set of ceiling speakers to an individual MD in that room/location.
In my mind, option 1 is the easiest and simplest. I have seen option 2 being recommended here. If two really is the best way to go, which amps are you guys using? And, WHY is option 2 better than 1?
Thanks in advance for any and all replies.
