re: New House Audio - LSU Jonno
It depends what kind of audio quality you are looking for. I'm a big fan of Chromecast audio to sync speakers. If you already have a receiver you can hook up a Chromecast audio to it. If you want to expand to more zones you can buy a few small amps like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00F0...

re: Nest or Ecobee3? - LSU Jonno
Hey guys, just wanted to chime in. If you have a smarthome hub, it can do a lot of the smarts of the ecobee3 like geofencing and remote sensors. My upstairs is only a bonus room plus 1 bath and 1 bedroom and doesn't have a temperature difference issue. So I just bought a cheap wifi thermostat...
