I am looking to get a music system that will run off a central server type thing, with multiple speakers dotted around the house. Controllable via a smart phone or small tablet. Main system will be in the living room with the TV etc, but for the other rooms, I'd like smallish portable speakers, or something unobtrusive.
I notice that Sonos systems are quite popular, but limited in terms of speakers (and a bit compromised on sound quality). I recently hears some Bose and B+W Airplay speakers, and they sounded like they'd be great in the kitchen/bathroom etc. So 'normal' powered speakers and Apple Airport Express units? Airplay speakers? Sonos? Oh and radio is essential too.
What do you use and/or what would you recommend?
