New home distributed audio / video advice
Hi everyone, my wife and I are building a new home. I'd like to prewire it for audio and video. My main goal was distributed audio to 5 zones of the house with in-ceiling speakers, but I'm also looking at video distribution as well and am looking for some input from others who may have done this.
Since it's a new home, I'm working with a clean slate. I plan on running all of the speaker wire, coax cable, and Ethernet to a central location in the basement. In this location, I plan on putting an amp for the speakers (potentially a Nuvo system), a network switch or router, and my cable modem. My main computer will be located in the office in the second floor.
I want to hard wire AppleTV's to the master bedroom and the main TV room to minimize the strain on my wireless network. A third and fourth AppleTV may be thrown into the mix at a later time.
I'm considering putting a MacMini as a central server in the basement connected to a large external HDD where all of my other connections will be made. It will just run iTunes, and I will manage the library from the iMac in my office.
Does this all make sense, or am I missing something?
Thanks for the input.
