If you do have deals on equipment, I'd be interested too.
DM me Jeff, I can save you a lot on your first order.
The downside to placing all the Sonos systems in one location is you don't get the benefit of their wireless mesh technology which their controllers use, however, lately the better solution for controlling it is via an android or iOS phone/tablet with your standard house wireless.
I've found for bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms nothing beats the sound out of an S5. This includes my speakercraft in ceiling speakers I have in my garage and shop. Pair and S5 with the new sub and wow!
