So hopefully this makes sense. Basically I am looking for the best way to set up home audio throughout my house, including outdoors. I live in a 2 bedroom apartment with an outdoor patio and would like to be able to at the very least have the option to have speakers in the living room for my Home Theater and also outside on my patio, and be able to listen to music through both at the same time, or switch between them. Possibly extending this to the bedroom as well. Currently all I do to listen to music is use my laptop without any speakers and take it inside or outside. Same goes for the TV and movies, I only use the built in speakers. So pretty bare bones right now. One idea I had was the following. Purchase this: http://www.monoprice.com/products/p..._id=1011002&p_id=7974&seq=1&format=4#feedback I would use the switch box to plug my DVD, DirecTV and Apple TV(thinking of purchasing for airplay) into, then with the audio out, plug into a set of speakers for the house. The one issue I am running into is that I don't know how I would hook up and speakers for outdoors with this setup. Would I need to purchase an Airport Extreme or express for outdoor use? If I did that, could the music still play through both inside and outside speakers at the same time? Anyone have a better option or any insight? Thanks, home audio noob here.
