Submission + - Simple, cost effective multiroom audio?

jimicus writes: I'd like a multiroom audio system but I'm thoroughly confused by the options available — and the difference in prices is huge. For instance, Philips have a wireless system which starts at around £280 — and Russound have a product which comes in around £1,000.

I've already got all my music as MP3s and it lives on a NAS box — I don't really want to repeat that process. I also have a perfectly capable amp and speakers in my living room, so I don't really need anything else there.

Whatever I go for has to pass the wife test — so something which requires a separate amp, speakers and PC in each room and requires a keyboard to control is right out.

I don't mind spending a little money but I don't really want to find that every little extra thing adds up to £thousands.

Has anyone else dealt with a similar problem? How did you solve it?

The trouble with money is it costs too much!
