I plan to have in ceiling speakers Revel C263 or C363: 1 pair in bedroom, 3 pairs in living room and kitchen, 1 pair in family room and 2 pairs in patio.

How do I multi zone them and control music from media closet.

I am the stage where I will be prewiring in next 1-2 weeks.

Some say I will need amplifier and some say I don't. I am confused in that regards.

I don't think I need subwoofer for in ceiling speakers.

I was told to go with Denn Heos or Sonos to control them. However I need attest 3-4 of them for 7 pairs of speakers which makes it very expensive.

Please suggest some ideas, hopefully not too expensive.

Thank You

Of course you will need an amplifier. Speakers won’t generate sound without one.

That is a lot of speaker though, way too many for one amplifier. You need a multi-channel amplifier.

Sonos or Denon HEOS will only control Sonos or HEOS speakers, so that option’s out.

I suggest getting in touch with a company that specializes in whole-house audio, such as Home Theater Direct.
