A friend of mine liked my multi room audio setup. He has just bought a new house an the previous owner removed all the fancy multi room audio equipment including the in ceiling speakers. So my friend was left with a bunch of empty speaker grills and wires back to a central cupboard.
He asked me if I would help setup a system for him and it seemed like an opportunity that was to good to miss so we did the following (he had 5 rooms so we bought 5 of everything)
Recipe for success (if you buy please use my affiliate link as I get a few pennies from each order):
5 High quality 50cm audio leads from ebay.
5 Raspberry Pi cases from ebay (they are much cheaper than amazon)
He purchased 5 sets of Bose 32 Ceiling speakers from ebay to fix in to the existing holes he had in the ceiling.
Cost per room ((excluding speakers)- around £65
Satisfaction level: Priceless 🙂
We used the same logitecth music server software for raspberry pi (covered in another blog) as we did for my own system. He now has a 5 room multi room audio system which he can control from his phone or Ipad.
