I'm looking to put together a digital system that I can control with my android phone to play music in my bedroom and possibly also in the living room.
I currently have an htpc running windows 7/xbmc, a home theater receiver and a synology nas in my living room. Works great for movies/tv shows, but xbmc leaves a bit to be desired with music playback.
I want to set up a pair of speakers, preamp/amp and a digital audio system in my bedroom with the source being the same synology nas in the living room.
I have been looking at a sonos connect, keeping it in the living room and just running a long coax cable to my preamp in my bedroom. As such, I could control it via my phone and it would play over the bedroom speakers when the ht setup is off, and through the ht setup when the bedroom setup is off.
Does this sound feasible, any other thoughts? I am looking for any options here - I dont care about wireless, I just want a good digital player with a good remote app that can pull music and organize it well (its already tagged, but playlists, ease of selecting music, etc) on a phone/remote.
