We have a lifestyle 48 (hard wired) which is 15 years old and the media centre was refurbished 5 years ago and recently the Bose link to the other 4 zones is not working and the media centre would have to be refurbished again at a cost of $700. Apparently, from what I’ve read, the Accoustimass (16” model PS48, 350W max) which controls the 5 dual cube speakers, along with providing the bass is compatible with just about any AV receiver. From my limited knowledge, I was thinking of replacing the media centre which runs the entertainment system (Accoustimass for TV and Radio) with a Denon AV receiver (which one, what options) so that we can control the receiver with either our phones or iPads for streaming, music, channels etc. In addition, our 5 SA3 amps which are linked to the media centre for music or audio to the rest of the house cannot be repurposed or used with other Bose or other brands of receivers. So I was also thinking of getting a Monoprice whole audio amp to provide music to the rest of the house\/zones which can be controlled with our phones. My questions are: will this work? Which Denon AV receiver should I get to replace the Bose media centre? Is this a good solution, as I’m fed up with Bose? Any help would be appreciated.
