Default New Home Construction - Audio System

I am building a new house and I want to have a simple home automated audio system and video system.. Here is my wishlist:

- 3 pairs of speakers on the main floor (2 different zones)
- 3 pairs of speakers in the basement (3 different zones)
- I will be running Cat5e to all locations.

For the audio, i want a simple system, how is the Hi-Fi 2 Multi-Room Audio system? Is there anything that is similar or easier to hookup?

Please any input would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance

With the expandability of the HF2, you are good to go.

There are quite a few other options as I'm sure you are aware since you found the above.

If you are in a "bare wall" state, or will be, WIRE is cheap. Run it wherever you MIGHT IN THE FUTURE, like to have sound. The shop, the garage, the master bath.... you get the idea. Then map those places very carefully or simply box the terminal and cover for now with a blank. You'll be glad you did.

If it becomes too complex for you, consider calling in a pro now to help a bit with the planning.

Good luck on the build. Have fun with it!
