comment What are my options for multi-room audio?
Holy cow dude. Fantastic idea. I'm backing the kickstarter just for this. I don't even need/want the cables. The house was pre-wired with 2 CAT6e drops in every room. I've got one of those drops hooked up to the hub for high speed data, leaving another 8 wires in every room. Right now 4 of those are wired up for voice that we aren't using. I'll replace the wall jacks with custom ones that have a stereo input and wire the 4 unused wires directly into the jack.

comment How do I build a form and pour a concrete pad?
Awesome. Remarkably thorough. I appreciate it and totally have the confidence to do this now. Also, thanks for the side comments. I'll get some bonder and I don't have to worry about water/ice as this is indoors.

In a lot of states it's illegal to just shut off power to renters. You can get them evicted, but during that process are required to keep service for water, power and other utilities in areas you are responsible for.

I like this idea. It's new construction and not quite finished yet, but once it is I'll probably do this.

comment What are my options for multi-room audio?
The budget question is kind of open. The more whiz bang features it has and the more of our criteria it solves, the more we're willing to spend. From what I can tell, if we go Sonos we need 7 Connect:Amps and a few of the base Connects. Per-room input is out. But in the end, I could do a stack of receivers for less than half the cost of the Sonos system and it accomplishes most of the same goals, plus a couple extra. The tablets would be cheaper with some out of the park features. So expensive is a relative term. You mentioned some commercial systems. Any hard suggestions I can look at?
