I’m attempting to implement a multi-zone audio system.
I was planning to get the following hardware:
- Monoprice 6 Zone Home Audio Multizone Controller and Amplifier Kit
- RS232 to Ethernet module (for HA to control the amp)
- Polk Audio RC80i
- 6X chromecast audio (one for each zone)
Additionally, I would like to set up a voice assistant (not sure which is best, rhasspy/ada/mycroft?) at each zone.
The idea here would be to set up the assistants running on a pi using ReSpeaker mic arrays and have the voice assistant reply back on the in ceiling speakers in which the assistant is in (So if the voice assistant is in zone 1, then it replies back on the zone 1 ceiling speakers).
Maybe there’s a different way to do it? For example, a pi that is just a mic array which is monitored directly by my HA server?
Has anyone done something like this before? Is it even possible?
Thanks for your help!!
