  1. No that model does have network connectivity.
  2. Just pick a model that is around the same year. All the Denon receivers use the same API.
  3. I wouldn’t say I would recommend it but I have a single Sonos connect as the audio to a Russound MCA-C5. It works great. I’m fine with a single source for whole home and also fine with using the Sonos app to browse music. I just got a Sonos one for my office and it works great too.
  4. I've seen plenty of times on here where people show quotes from dealers where they have put an EA-1 (or previously HC-250) at every TV. I think Control4 guides actually recommend dealers do this. I dont get it. The EA-1 is the best deal in the custom integration channel. Super powerful. Yeah it doesnt have many IO ports or audio but with all the IP controlled devices and other sources for audio, who cares?
  5. I have a single EA-1 controlling my whole house! No reason to have an EA-1 per TV unless you had lots of IR devices and really want the OSD.
  6. The "you need to ask your dealer" post is the most useless kind of post on this board. The poster said they are talking to a dealer. They came on here asking for other opinions. I dont know about you all but I wouldnt just trust the opinion of a couple of dealers only just because they were local to me. My 2 cents; if you like the way the legrand lighting looks and it integrates with Control, go for it. You wont know the difference of how it is controlled. Dont let a dealer talk you into multiple controllers or one at every TV unless you are dead set on the C4 on screen display at every TV. You only need 1 controller if you use IP controlled TVs. Dont do sonos amps if starting from scratch. Do native C4 audio.
  7. I have noticed that in a couple of condos that I have stayed in for vacation recently that the complex is serviced by Spectrum and the TV’s don’t have boxes. The cable comes in through the coax directly into the tv like the old days. What technology are they using for this and why isn’t it available for homes?
  8. Yeah you are probably right. That Sonos Arc price is outrageous. Sonos has always been overpriced for what it is but this is another level. You could get something like a triad one and a nice passive sound bar for the price The more I look at it that Yamaha is not a bad price. Anyone have any details on how well it integrates into Control4? Can you browse the music services?
  9. Yeah I saw that. Looks like a good alternative for the Sonos line of sound bars but like you I am looking for some more budget friendly for my office.
  10. Any reason the budget Yamaha soundbars (YAS-109 and YAS-209) dont have IP control but the YSP-5600 ($1499) does?
  11. If you do not need audio and/or video integration and are ok with just app control there are lots of different options out there that are just as good if not better than Control4. AV integration seems to be something that few companies are willing to tackle. Which makes sense as that is the section with the most variables and variety of different manufacturers and control methods.
