Any problems splitting RCA SPDIF into two identical receivers? Sync issues?
I'm thinking of buying a couple relatively cheap amps instead of a massive speaker distribution system.
Okay, backing up: I want to get audio from a little MiniITX machine (with SPDIF out) out to like 20 speakers, all of whose speaker wire comes to one place.
The advantage to multiple cheap amps is I get zone control for free: manual on/off. Or automatic with remote-managed power strip.
If I get something big/fancy, I'd like serial port/etc control of muting speakers.
I don't even know what terms to Google for, and all my phone calls to installers aren't getting returned. Most frustrating.
