I usually have a lot of my friends over my home for parties/gatherings, and I am looking for a good audio component that will allow me to play music off my phone (or other network connected devices) via wifi or bluetooth to speakers in my home.
I have a home theater receiver connected to my living room home theater system, but it is not network connected, nor has bluetooth capabilities. I have used it connected to my macbook (via rca input), and using the apple Remote app, I can control my iTunes via iPhone. However, I have moved to using Spotify and other apps outside of iTunes. Aside from something like Sonos (which allows me to play any devices on the network that can then output to Sonos speakers setup in any room in the house), are there any other good alternatives where I can use my phone as the controller, and play music out of my old stereo receiver and other systems in the home? Maybe Sonos is the best solution here, but just want to find out about other alternatives. If you do have Sonos, do you recommend?
An added bonus would be to play different sources at the same time (from different speakers), all controlled via my phone (the phone can be one source of the music).
