Control4 Alternatives?

Recommended Posts

I suspect this might not be a popular question but I think Control4 system might be overkill for my simple needs of streaming audio (eg Spotify, TV) to six wires zones in my house. No automation. Looking for alternative DIY system recommendations like Sonos instead of upgrading my old 250 controller. Thanks

How are you amplifying them.

I think the problem you run into is the alternatives all need new amplification so your budget explodes there.

A eBay EA3 and a dealer to migrate the project, well backup and install on new device will be the most affordable solution.

Echo Amps x 6 could also work but are $299 each

We use Sonos in 4 rooms (2 are connected to tv) works great with c4 ~ Alexa allows you to choice music ~ newer kit plays control4 anocements faster then 

T3 touchscreens 
 

Control4 does not allow you to search (hence Alexa or google for that) but it does show favourites and plain list which you can program off
